The poker addiction test

Poker, especially online poker along with online casinos, recently has taken over the world of gambling. These games, that once were illegal and were played in hidden alleys and dangerous places, now become worldwide sensations.


This increase of popularity also has a downside; people can get very addictive when it comes to gambling. This happens because of the adrenalin rush and all of the excitement that gambling gives to the player.


Today, many poker players and gamblers have the gambling addiction and don’t even know about their disease. How can you see if you’re a poker addict? Read these facts, and give yourself a point for each one.
