How much is too much to spend on gambling?

The amount you can safely spend on gambling comes down to your circumstances and what amount you’re able to lose, without it affecting your ability to pay for other things. For some people, even a few dollars may mean they (or others) have to go without weekly essentials. Ask yourself – is your gambling just for fun?
