A guide to responsible gambling
Playing at an online casino can be a very exciting and entertaining activity, but it also requires a responsible approach. You should always remember that gambling is just a form of entertainment and not a way to make money or solve your problems. You should also be aware of your capabilities and limitations, and not allow gambling to negatively affect your health, family, work, or social life.
In this guide, we’ll tell you about our philosophy on responsible gambling, give you tips on how to make your gambling more responsible and safe, and offer you some questions to help you check yourself if you are playing responsibly.
Our philosophy on responsible gaming
We believe that any game should be honest, transparent and fair. We also care about the safety of our players and do not want them to become addicted to gambling. Gambling addiction is a serious psychological disorder that can lead to undesirable consequences for the physical and emotional well-being of the player and those around them. We are committed to preventing gambling addiction by providing our players with information, tools and support.
We also respect our players’ right to self-determination and self-control. We do not impose any restrictions or rules on our players unless they request them. We provide our players with the ability to set their own limits on the time and money they wish to spend on gaming, and to suspend or terminate their participation in gaming activities.
We also promote a positive and friendly environment for our players. We protect our players from any form of discrimination, harassment, fraud or abuse. We also encourage our players to communicate and share experiences with other players, but do not allow any form of imposition, manipulation or propaganda.
Tips for responsible gambling
Here are some tips on how you can make your online casino gambling more responsible and safe:
- Only play when you are in a good mood and relaxed. Do not play if you are upset, angry, stressed or drunk.
- Play only with money you can afford to lose. Don’t gamble with your last money, take out loans or borrowings to play, or risk your property or valuables.
- Set limits on the time and money you want to spend on gambling and stick to them. Do not exceed your limits even if you win or lose.
- Take breaks from your gambling sessions. Do not play for many hours at a time. Make time for other activities and entertainment.
- Do not consider gambling as a way to make money or solve your problems. Gaming is just a form of entertainment, not an investment or a job. Don’t expect to win big or have a steady income from gambling.
- Do not try to win back your losses. This can lead to even more losses and frustration. Accept losing as a part of the game and move on to another type of entertainment.
- Learn the rules and strategies of the game. This will help you understand the game better and enjoy it more. But don’t forget that no strategy gives you a guaranteed win.
- Observe your behaviour and emotions during the game. If you start to lose control, set unrealistic goals, or ignore your health, family, work, or social life because of gaming, these may be signs of gambling problem. In this case, you need help. Don’t hesitate to contact us or specialised organisations that provide counselling and support for people suffering from gambling addiction. We are always ready to listen and help you.
Are you gambling responsibly?
There are a few questions you can ask yourself to check if you are gambling responsibly:
- Do you gamble for fun or for money?
- Do you set limits on the time and money you want to spend on gambling and stick to them?
- Do you take breaks from your gambling sessions?
- Can you easily stop playing when you need or want to?
- Do you play when it doesn’t disturb you?
- Do you play when you are in a good mood and relaxed?
- Do you try to win back your losses?
- Do you hide your gambling from your family or friends?
- Have your family or friends ever approached you about your gambling?
- Does your gambling affect your health, family, work or social life?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, it may be a sign that your gambling has become a problem for you. If this is the case, we encourage you to contact us or specialised organisations for help.
