Keeping Your Gambling Under Control

These below tools are designed to keep gambling fun. You may never need them, but you should use them if you feel the need to.

Self-exclusion

All casino operators are required to provide players with the ability to self-exclude themselves from gambling online. Every user can set different time limits, from 1 year or permanently. Users who opt-in for self-exclusion will not be bothered with any marketing materials from the operator.

Social Media Break

Unfollow all gambling operators and casino accounts on social media.

Blocking Software

There are tools that, once installed on your phone or computer, will block your access to gambling websites. Check them out: Betfilter, Gamblock or PlayScan.

Cooling-off Periods

You can always take break from the game and block your access. Take a set time away from the operator by setting a cool-off period between one and 30 days. The operators, then, shouldn’t communicate to you with sign-up bonuses or free spins.

Deposit Limits

Limit your deposits for a day, week or month so you can cap the amount you put into your account. Every operator will have a feature to set specific limits or controls to help players keep in control their spending.
