Gambling at an online casino should always be aimed at entertainment. However, there are those who lose control over themselves while gambling. Before starting to play, it is important to understand that gambling shall never be viewed as a source of income or means of recovery from debts. It is useful to keep track of the time and the amount of money spent at an online casino daily.
If you think you are spending more money than you can afford, or in case gaming is starting to interfere with your normal daily routines, we strongly advise to consider several measures that can help, such as setting Personal Limits on your gaming activities, opting for Self-Exclusion or seeking help and support from trusted independent bodies.
You can take the gambling addiction quiz) to determine whether you are exhibiting the signs of an addiction to gambling.
To assist you in gambling responsibly we offer the Personal Limits feature. You can set limits on the amount you deposit, lose, wager, spend in a game, or as part of your account activity on the whole. This functionality can be accessed within your account in the “Personal Limits” section.
Limits can be amended at any time. A decrease in the limit will take effect immediately, however an increase may only occur after email confirmation and only after the previous limit of the same type expires, in order to avoid rash decisions. If you require further information or assistance regarding Personal Limits, please contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deposit Limit. A limit on your deposits for a day, a week, or a month.
Loss Limit. A limit on your losses in the casino for a day, a week, or a month. Please note the loss is based on the initial deposit and not winnings attributed to the deposited amount. If for example you deposit €50, set a Loss Limit of €10 and then go on to win €1,000, you can still lose more than €10 of the €1,000 balance as it is based on the initial deposit instead of the winnings.
Wager Limit. A limit on the wagered amount for a day, a week, or a month.
Session Limit. A limit on the amount of time in minutes spent playing a game.
Cooling-Off Limit. You can set a Cooling-Off Period for 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months or 6 months. While the limit is active you cannot deposit to the Casino and you will be excluded from all promotional offers, although you may withdraw the remaining funds during this period. The Cooling-Off period is applied to your account immediately. Upon its expiration your account will automatically be re-activated.
Self-Exclusion Limit. You can set a Self-Exclusion Limit for definite (from 1 day to 3 years) or indefinite period. Upon doing so your Player Account will immediately be disabled and you will be excluded from all promotional offers for the set period. You will not be able to deposit or withdraw funds when the limit is active. Upon its expiration your account will be automatically re-activated.
Setting Self-exclusion lets us know that we need to take all measures to block your access to your account and make sure that you receive no promotional materials. You may also contact our support team at email@example.com and inform us about your decision to stop gambling at the Website for a certain period of time or forever.
Please note that if you are self excluded from the casino for an indefinite period of time, the funds remaining on balance will be paid according to the casino limits. If you are self excluded for a definite period of time, the funds remaining on balance will be paid according to the casino limits only when a period of self exclusion expires.
