Fancy a bet is a clear and focused app designed to help people stop gambling. It is aimed at anyone who gambles; whether they think they have a problem or not, and is presented in a clear easy to process format along with a strong theme that gambling is evil. This is designed to make the user question why they gamble. The app is divided into three sections: tools, information and action. The tools section contains a gambling calculator, up to date (shocking) industry statistics and an odds calculator. The information section contains thought provoking sections on chasing, the consequences of gambling and how to stop. The action section invites the user to sign an e-petition for their national government to investigate the effects of problem gambling. There is also a share function to help spread the word via social media. The author was a problem gambler for years and has now successfully stopped gambling. He has designed this app with the aim of using his knowledge and experience to help others stop their addiction.

Don't even think about betting now


I've gambled for about 20 years and have wanted to stop for a while. I don't gamble more than I can afford but would Say Idefinitely have an addiction. What I like about this APP is that after you've put in what you gamble per week it starts adding up every day what you save if you don't gamble. So far I'm at £139 and once a week I put the amount into an account. It's very early days but if I keep it up I will save about £3k a year. I haven't had a bet for nearly 3 weeks which is a long time for me.

It's now 4 months since I've had a bet and I've put over £1100 into an account which I probably would have gambled. The thing is I don't even think about having a bet now but every Saturday put money into the account instead. It really works

Great app

Losing everything i have

Think this app will help me, instead of me gambling im checking this app to see the money go up on what i save , i check the app once every hour to watch the money go up and its helping.. Its giving me a "buzz" of winning and its not costing me anything now.. Gambling is destroying me and im in debt but im working to pay it off as fast as i can now thats my "buzz"



You can tell this has been put together by someone who has battled this problem for sometime. Very useful info and tools included and although a lot of the info is available elsewhere having it one place and on your phone is invaluable.

It's very early days for me but I'd recommend it to anyone who is trying to quit or avoid the easy temptation to gamble online .

Sticking it on your home screen as a constant reminder of what this problem costs is definitely helping and I've saved over £100 this last week thanks to this simple and inexpensive app.

A long road ahead but thanks for the help so far.
