Responsible Gambling

Please note that it is against the law for anybody to gamble UNDER the age of 18.

 

 

Tips and advice on how you can stay in control of your gambling to keep it fun and ensure you are always gambling responsibly can be found below.

  1. Only gamble with money you can afford to lose – Never gamble with money that you need for essentials, such as rent, bills or food.

  2. Don’t chase losses –Don’t try and get money back by betting more and going over your limit. This usually leads to bigger losses.

  3. Take a break – If gambling is no longer fun then take a break.

  4. Set a money limit in advance – Set a limit on how much money you are willing to lose before you bet or play. If you reach that number, it’s time to walk away.

  5. Set a time limit in advance – Set a time limit for how long you can afford to spend gambling and stop when you reach it.

  6. Never put gambling before friends or family – Don’t put gambling before other social activities or seeing friends and family.

  7. Don’t gamble if you are angry, upset or depressed – You can’t make good decisions if you aren’t in the right frame of mind.

  8. Don’t drink or take drugs when gambling – Decisions that are made under the influence are often regretted after so don’t mix gambling with drugs or alcohol.

  • Reality Checks – You can monitor the amount of time you’ve been playing by setting up reality check alerts which will pop up and alert you how long you’ve been logged into your account for.

  • Account History – Account history features will allow you to track your betting history, deposits and withdrawals so you can keep an eye on every transaction you make.
