Nebraska health officials are urging problem gamblers to seek help in anticipation of next Sunday's Super Bowl.

The state's Department of Health and Human Services say problem gamblers can call a free, confidential hotline at 1-800-426-2537. Scot Adams, the state's behavioral services director, says problem gamblers may bet more than they can afford, lie about money and time spent gambling and chase their losses.

The state also offers a website, playitsafe.ne.gov, to help residents who may have a gambling problem.
