Stay In Control

We believe that gambling should always be an enjoyable leisure activity. Remembering these simple tips can help make sure your gambling doesn’t become a problem.

1. Gambling should be entertaining and not seen as a way of making money.

2. Bet sensibly and never chase your losses .and stick to your predetermined budget

3. Only gamble what you can afford to lose. Use Deposit Limits to manage the amount of money you spend. Routinely review your online account history to track your gambling expenditures. .

4. Plan how much time you want to spend for each gambling session and monitor the time.Regularly review your online account history for the amount of time you spend.

5. Balance gambling with other activities. If gambling is your only form of entertainment, think about whether you are still having fun.

6. Take regular breaks from gambling. Gambling continuously can cause you to lose track of time and perspective.

7. Don’t gamble when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Do not gamble if you are depressed, to avoid other problems in your life. or when you’re upset.

Take a Break

If you want to take a short break from betting and gaming, you can do so by taking a Time-Out for a period of 24 hours, 48 hours, 7 days, 30 days or maybe more..

Once you begin your Time-Out, you will not be able to use your account for betting and gaming, although you will still be able to login to withdraw any remaining balance. It will not be possible to reactivate your account until your chosen period has ended.

If you feel you are at risk of developing a gambling problem or believe you currently have a gambling problem, you should use Self-Exclusion and seek help.

Self-Exclusion

If you feel you are at risk of developing a gambling problem or believe you currently have a gambling problem, please consider Self-Exclusion.

Self-Exclusion allows you to close your account for a specified period (for example – 6 months, 1 year, 2 years or 5 years). This prevents you gambling for your selected period of time.

During a period of self-exclusion you will not be able to use your account for betting and gaming, although you will still be able to login to withdraw any remaining balance. It will not be possible to re-open your account for any reason, and gambling sites will do all they can to detect and close any new accounts you may open.

Gambling sites may provide you an option of selecting which areas of the site you would like to limit your access to. For example you could limit your access to Sports product. We strongly recommend not using this option. It is best to elect complete self exclusion.

Should you opt to self-exclude from one gambling site, we strongly recommend that you seek exclusion from all other gambling operators you have an account with.

We also suggest that you remove any gambling site from your notifications and delete/uninstall all gambling site apps, downloads and social media links. You may also wish to consider installing software that blocks access to gambling websites, click here for more information.

We recommend that you seek support from a problem gambling. See gambling problem – support and advice.
