WhereGamble takes the topic of responsible gambling extremely seriously. This is absolutely imperative for both the player and the casino they play at. In short, responsible gambling means being aware of the risks involved in gambling and managing those risks so that gambling does not become a problem.
Responsible gambling for players and casinos
You should never bet more than you can afford to lose, so always make sure to limits on how much time you will spend gambling. This includes setting a budget for yourself and sticking to it. If you go under your starting amount, never ever chase losses. If you lose money while gambling, walk away and don’t try to win it back!
For casinos, responsible gambling includes providing information and support to help players gamble safely, as well as clearly promoting Responsible Gambling Codes of Practice, and monitoring patron activity to identify problem gamblers before damage is done.
Why is responsible gambling important?
Responsible gambling is important because it is how you can ensure you have a great time playing, whilst you actively avoid experiencing the nasty repercussions which irresponsible gambling can cause. This means being aware of the risks involved in gambling and managing those risks so that gambling does not become a source of harm or distress. Please always keep this in mind, be conscious of the dangers and don’t over invest. Gambling is meant to be a source of entertainment and that’s exactly what we want it be. Nothing more.
