Super Bowl XLIV - When it's Not Just About the Game
Date:2/4/2010

Frequently the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling (FCCG) sees the effects that the most celebrated day in sports has on callers to its 24-hour helpline before those closest to the caller do. Many sports gamblers view this game as their last chance to make up for losses incurred throughout the year. They will wager everything in hopes to achieve that “big win”. What many compulsive gamblers don’t consider when gearing up for this game and placing their bets, is the fallout that their families can face due to their gambling behaviors.

(PRWEB) February 4, 2010 -- Frequently the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling (FCCG) sees the effects that the most celebrated day in sports has on callers to its 24-hour helpline before those closest to the caller do. Many sports gamblers view this game as their last chance to make up for losses incurred throughout the year. They will wager everything in hopes to achieve that “big win”. What many compulsive gamblers don’t consider when gearing up for this game and placing their bets, is the fallout that their families can face due to their gambling behaviors.

As Pat Fowler, FCCG Executive Director explains, “Impacts from compulsive gambling are devastating to those closest to the gambler. In fact, often times, family members suffer more than the gambler themselves.” Statistics from the FCCG’s 24-hour helpline indicate:

 
  • 74% of callers report family conflict due to a gambling problem
  • 65% report family neglect
  • 4% report family violence in the household
  • 1/3
