Super Bowl a Problem for Recovering Gambling Addicts

Posted: Updated:

With the big game coming up this weekend, many gambling sites are gearing up to take bets, but for some, placing these bets is a serious problem.

A Montana gambling fact sheet from 2009 reveals the state has an estimated total of over 22,000 adults that suffer from gambling problems.

And gambling addiction specialist, Robb Kelly, says the Super Bowl is to gambling addicts what New Year's is to alcoholics.

The big game is getting coverage from every outlet, thus serving as a constant reminder for those addicted to sports betting.

And sports books show that one can bet on anything related to the Super Bowl, including the amount of times Payton Manning will yell Omaha.

Those, who feel they may have trouble controlling the urge to put money on the game this weekend, should reach out to the Montana Council on Problem Gambling.
