Responsible Gambling

Online gambling can be an enjoyable pastime for most individuals, but for a small minority, it may become problematic. Although the majority of our online customers will never experience any issues, responsible gaming is essential for everyone, regardless of whether they have a gambling problem or not.

At all our websites, we are committed to promoting safe and responsible online gambling by marketing and advertising operators that prioritize these principles. We also provide information and guidance to those who might struggle to control their gambling habits.

To facilitate responsible gaming, most websites offer the following functionalities:

Reality Checks: These prompts help you manage your online playtime effectively.

Deposit Limits: You can set financial limits for daily to monthly periods, and you have the option to adjust or remove them entirely.

View Gambling Activity History: Access your transaction, deposit, and withdrawal history to keep track of your gambling activities.

Take A Break/Time-outs: You can take a break for a period ranging from 24 hours to 6 weeks.

Self-Exclusion: You have the option to self-exclude from each website, for a duration of your choice, ranging from days to years.

Autoplay Controls: If you prefer using the auto-play feature, you can set stake and loss limits before starting the game, and you can always stop or pause the game.

How do I know I have a problem?

If you are unsure whether your gambling has become problematic, you can ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you gamble alone for long periods, neglecting other activities?
  • Have you increased your gambling stake to chase excitement?
  • Do you experience mood swings or agitation due to gambling?
  • Do you use gambling as an escape from life's problems?
  • Do you hide your gambling losses from others?
  • Have you unsuccessfully tried to reduce your gambling time or spending in the past?
  • Have you been tempted to commit dishonest acts to fund your gambling?
  • Have you tried to win back losses by gambling on another day?
  • Have you hidden your gambling from important people in your life?
  • Are you in debt due to gambling or unable to repay borrowed money?
  • Have you sold possessions to fund your gambling or pay gambling debts?
  • Do you break promises to family and friends to gamble?
  • Do you feel isolated because of your gambling?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, it might be necessary to address your gambling behaviour. You can also take the confidential 'Concerned about your gambling' quiz on the BeGambleaware website for further insight.

If you believe you have a problem, the first step is to be honest with yourself and acknowledge the issue. This self-awareness is crucial in addressing the problem. You can adjust your approach to gambling or seek help and support if needed.

Staying in control

Practical steps to stay in control include:

  1. Limiting your deposits, expenditure, or online playtime using the tools provided by recommended gaming websites.
  2. Consider self-exclusion from all gambling websites if necessary, taking a break from all forms of gambling.
  3. If you want to prevent access to other gaming facilities, visit for assistance.
  4. Use a calendar to mark the days you don't gamble, tracking your progress in managing your gambling habits.
