How Online Casinos Promote Responsible Gambling

Gambling is a fun recreational activity, but it should be done carefully. It's not a way to get rich quick. Always avoid chasing losses, never gamble with money you can't afford to lose, and never gamble with money that should be used for rent, bills, or other necessities. To keep track of your spending, monitor your activities on the Balance page on a frequent basis. If your gambling causes you to feel uncomfortable in any manner, you should stop playing or even consider self-exclusion. In this guide, we’re highlighting how our casino (as well as many other casinos) work hard to promote responsible gambling. 

Equips Consumers with Player Protection Tools

We want our guests to have a good time in the casino, but we also recognise that gambling can become a problem for some people. At Slingo, we take pleasure in being fair, transparent, and socially responsible, and we want to protect our gamers from playing irresponsibly and to protect you so that you can have a fun, yet responsible gaming experience.

This is why you may establish deposit limits or whole play restrictions in the My Account section of the casino. Below you’ll find further information on the player protection tools that we promote on our site.

Gamestop

If you live in the United Kingdom, you've probably come across this gadget. It's quite popular, and many gamblers have benefited from it. If you're unfamiliar with GamStop, the UK's self-exclusion scheme, it's a website that specialises in assisting problem gamblers.

To track your gambling activities, you must create an account and supply all necessary information, including all of your internet data and statements from various money-betting businesses. Following that, GamStop will automatically prohibit you from gambling on all websites, including casinos, for the duration of the agreement. Put simply, it prevents you from gambling on the internet. The time frame selections usually include six months, one year, and five years.

Cooling off and Self-exclusion

Use our Player Limitation settings on the Player Limitation page of 'My Account' if you need to take a break from playing and don't trust yourself to stay away.

You can choose from a variety of Player Limitations:

  • You can select Cooling-Off from one of the following time frames: 24 hours or 1 to 6 weeks.
  • You can choose Self-Exclusion, which means your account will never be active again until you proactively request it, and you won't be able to do so for 180 days after you put it up.
  • After you've placed the Self-Exclusion, you can contact Support to extend it.

You will not be able to gamble or deposit during any Self-Exclusion period, and you will not get any marketing materials (it can take up to 24 hours to remove you from all marketing databases). Please keep in mind that any Self-Exclusion settings you make will apply to all other accounts you have on our site.

Deposit Limits

You will have the ability to limit your daily, weekly, or monthly deposit amount to any amount you desire throughout the account creation procedure on our UK licence. In the My Account area, you can alter your deposit limitations.

Reality Check

In the My Account section, you can specify a Game Status Reminder message for your account and even choose how many minutes should pass between each Game Status Reminder message. If you need help setting it up, please contact support and request that a Game Status Reminder message is added to your account.

If you allow this, a message will appear on your game screen every time the number of minutes you specify passes. The message will indicate how long you've been playing.

You have the option to press one of the following choices from this message: Continue, Game History, which displays your history, or Close Game, which logs you out.

Protects Underage Persons

Preventing children from accessing online casino content is a vital part of promoting responsible gaming. At Slingo, we suggest that parents use computer filtering software to ban particular apps and websites. This gives you control over the programmes your children see and use. Cyber Patrol, GamBlock, and Net Nanny are three filtering apps that we recommend.

We also recommend that you take the following precautions:

  • Children should never have unattended PC access
  • Your children should be informed about what gambling is and how it might damage them if it is not managed when they reach the appropriate age.
  • Allowing youngsters to watch or hear you play is not recommended due to the emotion that can be emitted while gaming.
  • If you have youngsters who have access to your computer, we advise you not to utilise the remember password checkbox.
  • Allowing minors access to your card or any other payment information is not a good idea.
  • Parents should educate themselves on the dangers of underage gambling and take appropriate steps to protect their children. 

Emphasis on Responsible Gaming on Social Media

After every two marketing posts, responsible online casinos like Slingo post responsible gambling messages on their social media pages, reminding gamblers to cool off, set deposit limits, and so on. This maintains the perfect balance of promoting everything we have in store for our players, while also emphasising the importance of responsible gambling.
