We take responsible gambling very seriously and want to help you stay in control of your betting. It's important to remember to only bet what you can afford and set yourself sensible limits.
What's available to you
Deposit limits: If you’d like to set a daily, weekly and monthly limit, you can do so by imposing limits on the amount you deposit. This can be done during the account registration process or at any point by navigating to > Bet responsibly > Spending limits > Deposit limits. Or you can just click here.
Account closure: Should you want to close your account, our standard account closure can be activated by getting in touch with us, or you can manually close the account yourself by going to > Bet responsibly > Suspend account and then decide which option suits your needs.
Cool-off: It’s also possible to take a cool-off break for between 24 hours and six weeks, during which time you won’t be able to log in to your account. If a cool-off is something you'd like to consider, you can simply go to > Bet responsibly > Suspend account, or just click here for more details.
Reality check: You can set a reality check within your account, that will give you the opportunity to enable a notification to appear when you've been on site for a certain amount of time.

Knowing your limits
We always want our customers to enjoy betting and gamble responsibly. But for some, gambling can become a problem. Please read the important information below, especially if you’re recovering from any kind of dependency:
- Always establish limits for depositing, betting and losses before you start gambling.
- Decide beforehand on a time limit for your session and stick to it. Within that period, ensure you take regular breaks.
- Never gamble if it interferes with your daily responsibilities.
- Never gamble if you’re in recovery from any kind of dependency or are under the influence of alcohol or any other substance.
- Never gamble if your primary aim is to recover losses.
Answering the questions below will help you assess the level of your gambling:
- Do you stay away from work to gamble?
- Do you gamble to escape from a boring or unhappy life?
- When you're gambling and run out of money, do you feel lost or empty and in despair, and need to gamble again as soon as possible?
- Do you gamble until your last penny is gone, even the bus fare home or the price of a cup of tea?
- Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you spend gambling?
- Have others ever criticised or made comments about your gambling?
- Have you stolen, borrowed or lied to get money to gamble or pay gambling debts?
- Are you reluctant to spend 'gambling money' on anything else?
- Have you lost interest in your family, friends or hobbies?
- After losing, do you feel you must try and win back your losses as soon as possible?
- Do arguments, frustrations or disappointments make you want to gamble?
- Do you feel depressed or even suicidal because of your gambling?
The more you answer 'Yes' to these questions, the more likely you are to have a serious gambling problem. At this point, we recommend you contact us or one of the self-help organisations detailed below.
