Gamble Responsibly this 2022

Welcome to 2022 and a brand New Year. We hope you had a great holiday season and that your January has already started with a bang. Of course, the New Year brings new changes and new opportunities, and at Slingo we want one of those to be for all our players to gamble responsibly. If you’re frustrated with spending more than you intend to, are constantly chasing losses, or find online gaming taking up the majority of your spare time, then it’s time to make a change for the better. Keep on reading to find out how you can learn to gamble more responsibly in 2022.

How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolution 

1. Only play for Fun

Slot and Slingo games are meant to be played for fun and as a form of entertainment and not as a viable income source. When you’re playing online casino games, it’s essential you keep the emphasis on fun, and if at any time you find yourself becoming frustrated or angry with the game you’re playing then take a step back and call it a day.

2. Decide on Your Time Limit and Budget Before you Play

Before you start playing games at Slingo online set yourself a time limit and a budget for the session. If it helps you could write these numbers down on a post-it note and stick it on your monitor so it’s always in view. Be sure to be strict with yourself and keep to the limits you have set for yourself. This will stop you from overspending or playing until you end up losing any winnings you may have achieved.

3. Never Chase your Losses

When playing online slots remember the phrase ‘cut your losses’. This is a great responsible gaming adage, because a big online gaming no-no is to try to chase after losses. While slot games are exciting and many make it feel as though your next big win could be right around the corner, there’s actually no guarantee as slots are entirely dictated by chance. If you find yourself on a losing streak, stop playing, and take a break.

4. Make Sure You Only Play with a Clear Head

Never gamble online when under the influence or in a negative mood. These factors will alter your decision-making abilities and will prevent you from playing smart, leading to overspending and risky wagers.

5. Get Clued Up

Make sure you know how to game responsibly. At Slingo we always want our players to be safe when using our site and have a detailed Responsible Gaming page that can help you learn more about how to keep yourself safe when playing online.

6. Take a Break

Online gaming should be a fun hobby and shouldn’t be the be-all and end all of your free time. Take regular breaks and step away from the screen every once in a while. Not only will this help you keep a clear head and make sensible decisions, but will stop you from getting aches and pains and headaches too: it’s a win-win!

Always Play Responsibly on Slingo

At Slingo we always want our players to play responsibly. Our goal is not only to provide you with great online gambling entertainment but also to keep our players safe while doing so. So, make a New Year’s Resolution with us and gamble responsibly at Slingo.
