WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO PLAY RESPONSIBLY
Gambling is a form of entertainment, but it should be enjoyed responsibly. It´s not a way to earn a quick buck. You should always avoid chasing losses, never play with money that you can’t afford to lose, and never gamble for money that should go towards rent, bills or other expenses. You should check your activity regularly in the Balance page to keep on top of your money spent.
If you start to feel uncomfortable in any way due to your gambling, you should take a break from playing or even consider self-exclusion.
If you have any questions, contact the support department and they will help you.
Responsible Gaming and Protection Measures
It’s important that our customers enjoy themselves in the casino, but we also understand that for some players, gaming can become a problem.
We pride ourselves of being fair, transparent and socially responsible and want to protect our players from playing irresponsibly and safeguard you, so you can have a playful, yet responsible gaming experience. This is why we have the ability for you to set deposit limits or entire play limitations, these tools can help you keep control of your gambling and can be found in the My Account section of the casino.
GamStop is a portal on which you can register yourself, temporarily or indefinitely and once registered you will not be able to gamble on, nor receive any marketing material from any website that is duly licensed in Great Britain. For more information visit www.gamstop.co.uk
Cooling-Off, Temporary Suspension and Self-Exclusion
If you need to take a break from playing, and don’t trust yourself to stay away, then use our Player Limitation options which can be found on the Player Limitation page of ‘My Account’.
There are a range Player Limitations you can choose from:
- You can choose Cooling-Off, which you can choose from the following time frames, 24 hours, 48 hours or 7 days.
- You can choose Temporary Suspension, which you can choose from the following time frames, 30 days, 60 days or 90 days.
- You can choose Self-Exclusion, which means that your account will never be active again unless you proactively request it, and you cannot make a request within 180 days of setting the self-exclusion. To increase this period, you can contact Support after placing the Self-Exclusion.
During any Self-Exclusion you will not be able to gamble or deposit, nor will you receive any marketing material (it can take up to 24 hours to remove you from all marketing databases).

During the process of creating an account on our UK license you will have the option to restrict your daily, weekly or monthly deposit amount to any amount you want. You can change your deposit limits in the My Account section.
Game Status Reminder (Reality Check)
You have the option to set a Game Status Reminder message to your account in the My Account section and even select how many minutes there should be between each Game Status Reminder message. If you need any assistance setting it up, please contact the support department and ask them to add a Game Status Reminder message on your account.
When you have this enabled, a message will appear across your game screen each time the number of minutes you choose passes. The message will let you know how long your been playing for. From this message you will have the opportunity to press one of the following buttons, Continue, which will close the message and the game will stay open, Game History, which indicates your history and Close Game, which will close game and will log you out.
A self-assessment test is just as it sounds… a test where you can check if your gambling is starting to become an issue for you. By doing a self-assessment test, you can easily understand if gambling is becoming an issue for you and act before it gets out of hand.

We say NO to Underage Gambling
We do not allow players under the age of 18 to gamble. This is stated in our Terms and Conditions.
We use both automated and manual processes in order to verify the age of the customer registering the account and any player under the age of 18 who registers an account will have their account closed immediately.
Prevent Underage Gambling
We recommend that parents install filtering programs on their computer to block certain software and websites. This will allow you to control the programs your children view and use.
We also advise taking the following precautions:
- Children should not be left unattended in front of a computer.
- When they reach the correct age, your children should be educated as to what gambling is and how it can affect them if it is not controlled.
- Due to the emotion that can be emitted whilst gambling, do not allow children to watch or hear you while you are playing any of our games.
- If any children have access to your computer, we recommend you do not use the check-box for remembering your password.
- Do not allow children to access your card or any other payment information.
- A different profile that only contains appropriate software and website access can be created on your computer for children. Parents playing our games can then use a different profile.
- Parents should educate themselves on the dangers of underage gambling and act accordingly.
