Gambling by Minors
Individuals under the age of 18 are not permitted to gamble. If you have an active account on a gaming website and live with people under the age of 18, you should take precautions to prevent them from getting access to it, such as keeping your login information hidden and not saving it on any computers or devices that minors may have access to.
We encourage all of our visitors to wager sensibly in order to keep their gambling activities safe and enjoyable. We suggest you to think about the following things to ensure that your gambling is safe and responsible:
- be aware that gambling is intended to be a fun activity, not a way to make money, and that the vast majority of gamblers lose in the long term;
- Never take on more risk than you can afford to lose, and never gamble with money that you need to get by.
- Set gambling limits, either by deciding on a maximum amount of money you’re willing to risk or a maximum amount of time you’re willing to spend gambling;
- use the self-help tools supplied by many websites to help you control your gambling, such as deposit limits or self-exclusion programs that lock you out of websites for a certain length of time;
- Make no effort to “chase” your losses.
- Do not gamble if you are depressed or trying to escape from other problems in your life; and never bet if you are inebriated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
While gambling in moderation can be a thrilling and enjoyable hobby, it is also addictive, and excessive gambling can have serious consequences. It’s important to recognise the warning indications that your gambling is becoming serious so that you can address the problem and get treatment before things get worse. If you’re worried about the impact of gambling on your life, consider the following questions:
- Have you ever missed work or school because of gambling?
- Has gambling ever caused you to be unhappy at home?
- Has your reputation suffered as a result of your gambling?
- Have you ever had a gambling remorse?
- Have you ever gambled to make money to pay off debts or to get out of a financial bind?
- Have you lost your ambition or efficiency as a result of gambling?
- Do you feel compelled to return as quickly as possible after a defeat to recoup your losses?
- Do you feel compelled to return and win more after a win?
- Do you frequently gamble till you’ve spent all of your money?
- Do you ever take out a loan to fund your gambling?
- Have you ever had to sell something to fund your gambling?
- Are you hesitant to spend “gaming money” on everyday purchases?
- Have you been oblivious to your own or your family’s well-being as a result of your gambling?
- Do you ever gamble for a longer period of time than you intended?
- Have you ever gambled to get away from a stressful situation?
