When you head to the Responsible Gaming section at Mansion Casino you can find out that the casino features many different gambling addiction prevention charities on the website like Gamblers Anonymous, Gamble Aware and Gamcare.
You can easily set special limits that will control the amount of money you put into your account over a particular time period. You can set daily, weekly and monthly limits on the following:
· Deposit limits · Loss limits · Bet limits
Please remember that once you set these limits you need to wait for the specific time period to expire before you can make any changes. You can always decrease your limits, but any time you want to increase them, you need to contact the casino and they will give you a cooling off period before they make any changes to your account.
If you believe that your gambling is getting out of control then we advise you to consider self-exclusion. You can request to self-exclude for a period of between 6 months and 5 years. And, during this time you will not be able to make a deposit and play any games. Once the self-exclusion period is over, you need to contact the casino and let them know you want your account to be reopened. You will be given 24 hours cooling off period before you can use your account again.
Gambling addiction is a serious and very complex problem. People usually realize that they have a problem once they are deep into it. So, if you suspect that you or anyone you know is struggling then you should seek professional help. Gambling is a fun activity and you can easily get lured to play more than you need to or you can afford to. We have a set of questions especially designed for you so you can see at what stage of your gambling you are: · Has gambling ever interfered with your work or studies? · Do you gamble with more money than you can afford? · Have you ever sold anything to have money for gambling? · Are you trying to win back the money you have already lost gambling? · Do you feel the need to gamble with more money to feel excitement? · Have you ever struggled with an addictive disorder? · Have you ever gambled under the influence of alcohol or other substances? · Have you ever gambled out of boredom? · Have you ever felt anxious because of your gambling habits? · Have you experienced financial problems because of your gambling habits?
If you have answered 'yes’ to most of the questions then you should be extra careful how you spend your time and money. We recommend that you are honest with yourself and if you do have an addiction then you should seek professional help. For starters you can get in touch with some of these organizations:
· GamCare · Gamble Aware · Gamblers Anonymous · Gambling Therapy
10 Rules of Responsible Gambling
There is not a simple formula that you can follow to gamble responsibly, but instead there are some simple rules that you should abide to:
- Always gamble for entertainment reasons.
- The money you lose should be considered as a down payment for your entertainment, and winnings should be a bonus.
- Set a time limit and respect it, even if you are winning, once the time is up you should quit.
- Set a budget and never go over it.
- Expect to lose, and see the loss as part of the game.
- Educate yourself of problem gambling before you even start to play.
- Never borrow money to play.
- Don't let gambling interfere with your social life.
- Never chase your losses.
- Always play for fun.
Reality Check is another option that the casino offers to remind you how much time you have spent playing. For example you can set the timer to notify you when you have been playing for 1 hour, and once the time is up you can choose to continue or exit the game.
