Do you enjoy a bet, but sometimes lose track of your wins and losses?
Stay On Track is a FREE mobile phone application that makes it easy to set a gambling budget and stick to it.
When you gamble responsibly, it doesn’t have a negative impact on your life or the lives of those around you.
If you’re interested in responsible gambling and keeping track of your budget then you might like to download the app for your iPhone or android. We would also like you to let us know what you think of the app by giving us your feedback.
Once you’ve downloaded the Stay on Track mobile app from the Google or Apple store, all you need to do is:
- Enter your name or nickname.
- Decide how often you want to be reminded to enter your bets. Some people bet every day and others only once a week, either way the app can prompt you to enter your wins and losses with a pop-up reminder.
- Set your Betting budget. You can choose the dollar amount, but it’s a good idea to only enter a figure that you are prepared to lose.
- Decide on a Tracking period for your budget. We recommend that you select the same date range that you get paid on. So if you get paid weekly, your Tracking period will be a week, if you are paid fortnightly it will be two weeks etc.
- Enter your bets and the results as you go.
The MyTracker page is the heart of the app.
It has a simple graphic chart that tells you exactly how you are tracking against your budget by showing the time elapsed and the money spent. If you’re on track, the screen will be BLUE. If you’re doing better than expected, the screen will be GREEN and if you’re on track to lose more than you budgeted for, the screen will be RED.
Next to the graphic, you will get tips and ideas related to how you are tracking.

The Betting budget line tracks how much of your budget you’ve spent. If you have a win the line moves backwards and if you have a loss it moves forwards.
The Tracking period shows how far into your chosen betting period you are. If you’re only a few days into your Tracking period but you’ve already spent most of your budget, that means it’s time to slow down.
