Same Mission. New Look.

Be the 95% is now Get Set Before You Bet, which is poised to educate even more people in the coming year about the dangers of problem gambling. Get Set Before You Bet is a reminder to Ohioans that if  they choose to gamble, they should visit the campaign website to learn about healthy habits that can help them keep gambling safe and fun.

Like the award-winning Be the 95%, Get Set Before You Bet contains tips and tools to help determine if a gambler is at risk of problem gambling, such as an online assessment and interactive module. BeforeYouBet.org also provides resources for gamblers who may be struggling with addiction, such as the Problem Gambling Helpline number 1-800-589-9966.

Much like all other forms of addiction, problem gambling can also lead to a variety of withdrawal symptoms and psychological issues, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Restlessness
  • Suicidal thoughts

To assess your risk of problem gambling, please take the responsible gambling quiz at getsetbeforeyoubet.org/the-quiz.  If visitors use the URL, bethe95percent.org they will be redirected to the new site, beforeyoubet.org.
