For the majority of people, gambling is an enjoyable leisure and entertainment activity. However, for some, gambling can have negative impacts.
As a result a Responsible Gambling Code has been developed which sets out certain practices to be adopted by gambling providers in the provision of their services, in order to minimize the harm to consumers that may be adversely affected by gambling.
Wagering on sports or visiting an online casino or poker room can be fun and exciting. Most people have a great time and enjoy the excitement of gaming and know that gambling is a form of entertainment. But, for a small number of people, gambling isn't fun.
Problem gambling includes what is often called compulsive gambling. It refers to a condition where people are to some degree, addicted to gambling. If you think you may have a problem with gambling and wish to stop or limit yourself, there are a number of options that you can follow.
This function enables you to restrict access to certain products within the gambling sites, i.e. Casino, sportbook, Live Horse Wagering, and Poker. A gambler at any time can self-exclude themselves from playing in the sportsbook, casino, and/or poker sites we have listed. If you feel that betting online is no longer entertainment, we highly recommend this option.
Customers may also request that no direct mail or e-mail be sent to them. To stop receiving direct mail, they can contact our Direct Marketing department.
Betting can be an exciting leisure activity and we encourage our customers to have fun, but not to bet beyond their means. Therefore we offer customers the option to set a preferred maximum deposit limit and frequency in a 24-hour period.
Gamblers are able to view their "Account History" in the "My Account" section at each of the site listed here, where they will get a full overview of all bets they have placed and the amount staked on each bet.
If you are concerned that gambling has had a negative impact on your life or someone else's then the following questions may help you find out.
Does gambling prevent you from attending work or college?
Have you lost interest in family, friends or hobbies due to gambling?
Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you spend gambling?
Have you lied, stolen or borrowed in order to maintain betting habits?
Have you ever sold anything to finance gambling?
Do you often gamble until your last dollar is gone?
The more questions that you answer ‘yes' to, the more likely it is that you are having difficulties with your gambling. Remember gambling is meant to be fun. If you can handle it: be responsible with it, enjoy, and we wish you the best of luck.
