Responsible Gambling

Published : 1st of December 2009

All forms of gambling including online gambling should be seen as a form of entertainment. Gambling is not designed as a way to make money and the majority of players will lose money over the long term when gambling. If you are having trouble controlling your gambling then we suggest you take a break and seek help immediately.

While all of us like to win, it is the reality that all of us will lose money at some time or another if we participate in gambling online or offline. You should only ever gamble with money that you can afford to lose. If you are gambling with money that you need for other expenses such as bills you should seriously consider the fact that you may have a gambling problem.
