TIPS & ADVICE
Gambling should only ever be a form of entertainment. But sometimes, things can go a little too far. If you’re concerned about how much you gamble, or are worried about a loved one’s habits, then take a look at the following tips and advice below:
- Always try to keep track of your gambling spend and time! Remember this should be for entertainment only!
- Never spend more than you can afford to lose! Set yourself a budget and stick to it.
- No matter how many times red has come, that doesn’t mean black is due! Games are also never ‘prime’ or ‘due to pay’ – No amount of losses increases your chances of a win. Gambling, for the most part, is random, and our casino games use a certified random number generator (RNG).
- “No way the dealer can get another 21 right?” –Though some games like blackjack and poker require skill, there is still a random element of how the cards are dealt!
MANAGING YOUR GAMEPLAY
Gambling is a way to have fun and enjoy the thrill of the sport. Sometimes you may get a bit carried away – and we totally understand. That’s why we’ve got a number of account management tools to help you keep things in check.
