Protect your brain from the video gaming-gambling connection
Gambling is a game you don’t want to play
Gambling is when you risk something of value (like money, in-game currency, skins, jewelry, sneakers, etc.) trying to win something better in a game of skill or chance, where the outcome of the game is uncertain.
