TOP 5 Tips for Responsible Gambling

Modified by Dani Wilson on March 03, 2021 in Industry News

Online gambling has quickly become one of the hottest forms of entertainment enjoyed by the masses.As an online casino player, it is important to utilize a few responsible gambling tips to ensure you don’t develop a gambling problem. In light of Safer Gambling Week, here are the top 5 tips for Responsible Gambling:

Learn the Rules and Odds of the Games

A pro-tip when it comes to online casino games is to first learn the rules and odds of the games. Some games like online slots are quick and easy to learn while games like blackjack take time and practice.

However, with games such as blackjack, you can quickly turn the odds in your favour if you implement the right strategy and truly understand the rules of the game. Make sure you know the rules and odds of the games before you start playing for real money.

Set Time and Money Limits

One of the rules even the professional gamblers follow is setting limits on their time and money they are willing to spend with every gaming session. Before you start your gaming session decide how much time and money you are going to spend and stick to it.

Whether you win or lose make sure you stick to your set time and money limits for that session. It’s easy to get swept up in the moment but sticking to your guns will help you maintain your sanity and refrain from developing a possible gambling problem.

Don’t Chase Your Losses

Once you’ve set your Time and Money Limits, you’re all ready for your gaming session and you can start playing. However, you’ll quickly notice how easy it is to get caught in the moment especially with a big win or loss. It’s especially important to remember your limits when a big loss occurs.

For many, the need will occur to chase a loss. One of the top tips for responsible gambling is to never chase your losses. No matter how big or small the loss is, don’t chase. Much like a win, a loss is just a random occurrence and should never be chased. Remember, all games come with the chance of winning or losing. Chasing your losses will only lead to frustration and possibly more losses and debt. Stick to your limits and let your losses go.

Don’t Play with Money You Don’t Have

If you’re on a low budget or you’ve run out of cash it’s best to quit playing. You’ve set your money and time limits; you know not to chase your losses and now it’s time to quit when the funds run out. While many authorities are attempting to ban playing online casino games with credit cards there is still the option to do so. That being said, it is not a good idea to play with your credit card.

Use a card that has limits or allows you to set a limit on the amount you can spend. Playing with your credit card will most likely lead you into debt. Never spend money you don’t have on gambling activities. And don’t borrow money from friends or family for gambling activities.

Gambling is a form of entertainment that should only be enjoyed when you’re able to afford it.

Remember: It’s Entertainment

On that note, the cardinal rule of gambling is to remember that it is all for entertainment purposes. Casino games have the potential of awarding you big wins but it should never be your goal. Chasing big wins or losses will always lead to frustration and ultimately disappointment.

Play for the joy, the fun and the entertainment of the games. Software developers have created amazing games with advanced technology over the past few years. Allow yourself the opportunity to enjoy these games responsibly.

Most of the top-rated online casinos have several responsible gambling tools available. With safer gambling week in mind, why not make use of these tools to help you practice responsible gambling while enjoying the hottest online slots, table games and live casino games.
