There's a lot of wagering going on this week, in advance of Sunday's Super Bowl.
For most, it's not a big deal, says Rose Gruber of the Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling. She says many people play in office or bar pools, and most realize the chance of winning something is low and only use money that's set aside for entertainment.
However, Gruber says, for the five to seven percent of the population who are prone to gambling addictions, Super Bowl week can be a major challenge. She says January is the busiest month for the Council's hotline, and the big game is probably the reason.
