Responsible Gambling Week at PocketWin Casino

Responsible Gambling Week at PocketWin Casino

Published: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 by PocketWin

PocketWin has been recently accredited the Advanced Level 2 GamCare Safer Gambling Standard Accreditation, and with that are fully participating in this year’s national initiative for Responsible Gambling Week from the 7th to 13th November 2019.

Responsible Gambling Week and the entire gambling industry encourages operators, players and the public, to help and support those who have an issue with gambling, through encouraged conversation and raised awareness.

Along with the safety and awareness of Responsible Gambling Week, comes the responsibility that both PocketWin and all sister-brands take upon themselves to promote and act on responsible gambling.

PocketWin’s Responsible Gambling page is open to everyone at all times, should you need any guidance or support on what steps to take towards gambling responsibly, along with some helpful tools and settings you can put in place for added support.

Whether you feel you are in control of your gambling play or not, PocketWin has put together some general rules and tips that every player should be applying themselves to, before starting to play any Casino game.

Irresponsible gambling can have a negative impact on you, your loved-ones and lifestyle, should you fall out of control. Amongst all the fun and entertainment, players take on the chance of losing money. Therefore, it is of absolute importance to read through our general gambling tips and make sure you apply yourself to each one, for each gamble.

General Gambling Precautions

  1. Set limits

Before logging into your PocketWin account, set yourself a limit and stick to it. This limit can be based on the amount you wish to play until, how much you can afford to bet, and are willing to lose, as well as a time limit for playing.

You can set session limits on your PocketWin account at the bottom of our Responsible Gambling page here. If you cannot stop after the session is up, consider taking a cool-down period.

  1. Only play with what you can afford to lose

All forms of gambling hold a chance of losing, and with money being at stake, it could mean losing some of your hard earned income. If you cannot afford to lose, you are not gambling responsibly. Only play if you can afford to lose what you are betting.

  1. Don’t let emotions cloud your judgment 

Playing while feeling angry or sad can lead to you making irresponsible decisions. It is difficult to see clearly when one is feeling extremely emotional at the time of play and may lead you to losing money you cannot afford. Gambling is intended to be played in a relaxed, calm and focused environment.

  1. Relationships come first

Gambling takes up your time. This is time you could be spending at work, or with friends and family. Make sure you’re only using free time to gamble, without it interfering with any other responsibilities or your relationships. Responsible gambling should not cause issues in your relationships and you should be able to be honest about your gambling habits to your loved-ones.

All of these steps should be taken for every session on PocketWin. If you feel that you are not in control you can take a time out and set a cool-down period of 1 day, 7 days or 4 weeks.
