We want our players to have fun within our casino, so we encourage you to play responsibly at all times. Gambling should be fun.
In order to gamble responsibly you should remember the following:
- Gambling is a form of entertainment. It is not a way to get rich quickly and pay off your debts.
- Gambling is not a way to make money, the vast majority of gamblers actually lose money.
- Never wager more than you can comfortably afford to lose.
- Never wager with funds that you need to use for your day to day living expenses.
Place limits on your gambling, for example, this can include setting limits on the time you spend gambling, the amount you gamble each week, the amount you deposit in your account each week and/or the amount you can afford to lose each week. Never chase your losses.
Do you ever find yourself thinking, how is my gambling luck today? Do not allow this to dictate your gambling behaviour. NEVER trust sites about gambling horoscopes or sites telling you which days are lucky to gamble on. This is not responsible gambling – these are absolutely not based on any data and gambling is, by nature, purely about chance.
The minimum age participating in games is 25 years for Maltese citizens and 18 years for non-Maltese citizens.
How to stop gambling?
You need to be aware of how to stop gambling before it becomes a big part of your life. Trustworthy gambling sites include safeguarding measures such as the following, so look out for these in advance:
See profit and loss graph: see at-a-glance your 'winning' and 'losing' months through an easy-to-understand infographic.
Reality check: set up an interval-based popup timer to ask you if you still want to play while you're logged in.
Self-exclusion or self-ban: choose to exclude yourself from gaming for an amount of time (normally there is a minimum time set). If you want to know how to apply a self-ban for a casino, you need to get in touch with our customer services.
Responsible gambling info: for information about responsible gaming and getting help about gambling visit the Responsible Gaming Foundation’s website on www.rgf.org.mt.
If you feel the signs of a problem becoming prevalent:
- Reach out for support by confiding in a trusted friend or going to a Gamblers Anonymous meeting.
- Distract yourself with other activities that you enjoy - avoid isolation by looking for healthy ways to socialize.
- Postpone your gambling by giving yourself a longer period to wait (it may allow the urge to pass or weaken).
- Try to give yourself a reality check - imagine what will happen after you gamble, and the way it makes you feel.
