How to Play Responsibly
If you have decided to gamble online, there are some general instructions that can help you make your experience safer and reduce the risk of possible problems:
- Don't play if you're angry, tired or depressed. It's hard to make good decisions when you're not feeling well.
- Gamble for entertainment, not for a living. Gambling is based on chances and there are no magic formulas to guarantee winnings.
- Balance gambling with other activities. Find other forms of entertainment so that gambling doesn't become too big a part of your life.
- Maintain other interests and hobbies - don't let gambling be the priority in your life.
- Gambling in moderation is okay.
- Before you play, set strict limits on how much time you spend and how much you spend.
- Gamble with a budget you can afford. Never use money committed to food, rent, bills or school.
- Check the amounts you have wagered regularly on your statement.
- Make sure you know the rules of the games you play.
- Before betting, find out about the rules and characteristics of the games, the prize plans and the odds of winning. In this way, you'll be able to make an informed decision about the options and amounts you want to bet;
- Set time and money limits in advance, always using moderate amounts;
- Don't borrow money to gamble;
Minors are considered a vulnerable target group, which is why they should be protected and kept away from gambling.
Why worry about minors?
- They have less control over their impulses;
- They are less aware of the risks associated with their actions;
- They have a greater illusion of control and gain;
- They have greater illusions about predicting results;
- They are less open to criticism or advice and more resistant to awareness campaigns;
- They may have a greater tendency to resort to gambling as a way of compensating for feelings of isolation.
There are some signs that may indicate that minors are gambling for money:
- They show unjustified spending in their daily expenses;
- Borrowing money;
- They show excessive interest in the results of games;
- They focus on the results rather than the sporting activity;
- Mood swings (irritability, anxiety);
- They isolate themselves from their usual group of friends;
- Decrease in school performance.
If you have any doubts, question the child and explain the risks of gambling and using betting apps.
Tips for parents on gambling
Although our games are only intended for an older audience, advertising and information about them is accessible to all audiences, including minors. It is therefore up to parents and educators to explain the information they receive, making it clear that gambling is only for people over 18.
With regard to gambling on online platforms, it is also important for parents and educators to know or find out about the applications used by minors, since gambling on the internet is less monitored and it is more difficult to reduce the risks associated with gambling.
Nowadays, it's also possible to protect them with programs that block internet content, ensuring that access is restricted and monitored.
Gamble responsibly and safeguard minors:
- Preventing them from gambling;
- Making them aware of the risks of gambling;
- Not involving them in the act or the game mechanics.
Remember that the behavior of parents and/or educators influences the future behavior of minors.
We warn and encourage our clients to prevent minors from accessing gaming sites. ICRA (Internet Content Rating Association) is part of the Family Online Safety Institute, and provides information and advice on Internet safety.
If you have children or teenagers at home, use a protection system that allows you to limit the websites they have access to, preventing file sharing and generally providing detailed control over how your children are using the Internet.
Filter solutions allow parents to control Internet access based on chosen criteria. Parents can use these filters to prevent their children from accessing gaming sites, among others. If you share your computer with friends or family members who are underage, consider using filter solutions and visiting these sites:
