WHAT IS RESPONSIBLE GAMING?
Responsible gaming means a rational and sensible approach to gaming, which takes into account the personal circumstances of the individual in order to prevent gaming becoming a problem.
Responsible gaming means that customers make informed and considered decisions with the aim of gaining enjoyment and pleasure, and that the stake never exceeds what the individual can afford.
The responsible player bets for enjoyment and entertainment, and not to make money. They know that they can be lucky and win, but they also know that they can lose.
Responsible gaming means making decisions based on facts, and controlling the amount of time and money spent on gaming.
Responsible gaming means that the activity of gaming is an enjoyable, fun experience, and does not risk harming the individual player, or their family and/or friends.
HOW TO GAMBLE RESPONSIBLY
Bet for enjoyment, not to make money or to escape from your problems.
Don’t pursue or try to recoup losses.
Bet for fun: enjoy it when you win, but don’t forget that you can also lose.
Don’t borrow money in order to gamble.
At times of emotional crisis, your self control is weaker: avoid gambling at those times.
Only gamble the money that you have already put aside for enjoying yourself. Never use money intended for your living costs, such as food or transport.
Do not allow gambling to affect your relationships with family and friends.
Set a time and spending limit for your gambling.
Your level of gambling is only sensible if you are enjoying it.
