To have a great casino experience, you need to play responsibly at all times. So what does it mean to play responsibly? To put it simply, it means that you never spend more than you can afford and that you never feel distressed, anxious or depressed when you’re playing.
Just like other things in life, casino games are great fun when you enjoy them responsibly. However, if you don't play responsibly, they can have a very negative impact on your overall well-being. Just like any other addiction, compulsive gambling is a serious issue that you shouldn't take lightly.
We want our casino to be a source of excitement, entertainment, and fun. The moment it’s not, we see it as a serious problem. That’s why you should take some time to read through this page. You’ll find information about tools that help you play responsibly, and contact information to organisations that give expert help to people struggling with compulsive gambling and addiction.
How do I know if I’m playing responsibly?
Sometimes it can be hard to tell if your gaming is shifting from a healthy pastime to a compulsive behaviour.
The best thing is to pay a bit of attention so that you can discover any warning signs and address them before the situation gets worse. If you feel uncertain about your gaming habits you need to ask yourself these questions:
- Are you borrowing money to play?
- Are you staying away from your family for long periods of time just so you can play?
- Are you playing with money allocated for food, rent, bills, or other household expenses?
- Do you view your play as a source of income?
- Are you playing secretly, not telling friends and family?
- Do you frequently spend more money than you had planned at the beginning of a gaming session?
- Are friends or family members concerned that you spend too much time playing casino games?
- Do you get upset when you lose and feel a need of winning the money back?
Did you answer “yes” to any of these questions? If you did, you need to consider using our tools to restrict your gameplay.
