- Responsible gambling
We help you play responsibly
Gambling can be both entertaining and profitable. But you can’t always win. Losing is a part of the game and you have to be prepared for it. Therefore you should play responsibly, and not risk money that you can’t afford to lose. Gambling can also be addictive and make you lose perspective of time and money. We want all your gambling experiences to be as positive as possible, even if you lose. Therefore we work hard to help you control your own gambling.
We help you set the limits!
We give you the opportunity to set your own gambling limits and boundaries. We provide you with tools to prevent unhealthy gambling behaviour and enable you to play responsibly.
Whilst the majority of people do gamble within their means, for some gambling can become a problem. If you feel you’re losing the control of your gambling, we recommend that you take the below test. It will give you a clear image of your risk profile and provide advice on how to stay in control.
Do you need to cool off?
Should you think that you need a break from gambling, we are ready to help you into a cooling off period, specifying for how long you wish for your account to be closed. If you think that you have a problem, our support team can also give you advice on where to turn for professional help.
