When it comes to gambling, it is extremely easy to cross the line and find oneself addicted to it. Despite the fact that only a small percentage of population is troubled by this issue, we still want to ensure that all of our users have a safe and fun gaming experience.

So what is responsible gambling?
Simply put, being completely aware of how much time and money is spent on gambling is considered being responsible about it. We have compiled a small checklist for you, which we encourage you to go through in order to get a better understanding.
– Before you set for gaming, determine well in advance as to how much time and money you will be spending. More importantly, stick to these limits and don’t cross them.
– Only spend what you can afford to. Gambling should be seen as a mean of entertainment, just like going for dinner or a movie.
– Many people decide that they will stop only after they have won a particular amount. You must never do this, as it can have a counter effect and lead you in further loss.
– It is important to remember that you must see gambling only as a mean to enjoy and have fun, and NEVER as a way to make money.
You must realize you can win or lose your bets. There will be times when you may lose, and at these moments, you must never try to ‘win back’ the amount.
Moreover, and very importantly, do not ever try to gamble with borrowed money.
Lastly, stay in control. Like mentioned earlier, it is easy to become addicted to it. If you ever find yourself in such a situation, then we strongly urge you to seek help immediately.
Remember, opting for help is never a sign of weakness.
You can opt for self-assessment on www.gamcare.org.uk/online_self_assessment.php, or any of the other sites, where taking a simple test will give you a better sense of where you stand.
You can also consult your family members and close friends. Remember, they love you dearly and want what is best for you. If the issue is far too serious, then recovery options and anonymous meetings should also be considered.
