WIth sports gambling legalized how will it affect security clearances?


#1

Now that gambling is becoming legalized will gambling on sports in small amounts (putting $10-20 on a favorite team to win the super bowl for example) be any problem if I’m trying to get a clearance in the future?

The issue is financial responsibility. If you lose $5000 every month but your income is twenty times that, may not be a big deal. Of course if you have that much money you may not need to worry about getting a job that requires a clearance :slight_smile:

Moderation in all things. As boring as that might sound.

Legal gambling has never been a problem unless it leads to financial issues.
