We understand the need to be responsible and gambling should be an enjoyable experience. The following advice will be helpful to anyone who wants to ensure they keep it fun:
- Set limits on how much you can deposit online.
- Gamble only with money you can afford to lose.
- Play on our websites for fun. Do not see it as a way of making money.
- Don't use gambling as an outlet for stress or boredom.
- Keep track of your transactions through the statement function in My Account. Know what you have spent, and how much you can afford to deposit.
