Useful tools at online casinos

All online casinos with a UK gambling license offer various responsible gambling tools. These tools can help you control how much you deposit and play. Below are some of the options you can find at most casinos.

Deposit limits: You can set a daily, weekly or monthly deposit limit. Once the limit has been reached, you will not be able to make another deposit until the time has elapsed.

Reality checks: Reality checks help you to keep track of how much time and money you have spent by sending you reminders.

Time-outs: Set a time-out to close your account for a specific time period.
Self-exclusion: If you want to close your account for a longer period or indefinitely, use the self-exclusion option.

Transaction history: Casinos allow you to see how much you have deposited and withdrawn during any given period.

Steps that can help you gamble responsibly

It is important to be aware of your gambling habits. In this section, we have listed some steps and advice that can help you keep track of how much you gamble.

What to remember

Responsible gambling is one of our core values, and we want to give our readers some valuable tips and advice. Whether you are a new or experienced casino player, you should always keep these points in mind when you gamble:

Gambling is entertainment, not a way to make money. The casinos have the edge over the players, and you are more likely to lose than to win. Never play with money you can’t afford to lose, and don’t think of gambling as a way to make quick money.

Never chase your losses. It can be difficult to stop playing after losing, and you might be tempted to make another deposit and win your money back. However, you should accept your losses and never try to win back what you have lost.
