Gambling responsibly is crucial to ensure an enjoyable and safe experience.

Here are some tips to help you gamble responsibly:

  1. Set a Budget: Determine how much money you can afford to lose before you start gambling and stick to that budget.
  2. Limit Your Time: Set a time limit for your gambling sessions and avoid spending more time than intended.
  3. Avoid Chasing Losses: Don’t try to recover losses by increasing your bets. Accept losses as part of the game and move on.
  4. Balance Gambling with Other Activities: Don’t let gambling take over your life. Engage in other hobbies and activities to maintain a healthy balance.
  5. Never Borrow Money to Gamble: Only gamble with money you can afford to lose. Avoid borrowing or using money meant for essential expenses.
  6. Avoid Alcohol and Drugs: Gambling under the influence of alcohol or drugs can impair judgment. Make sure you are clear-minded while gambling.
  7. Use Self-Exclusion Tools: Many gambling platforms offer self-exclusion options to temporarily or permanently restrict your access to their games.
  8. Set Time and Deposit Limits: Use the available tools on gambling platforms to set time and deposit limits to prevent excessive play.
  9. Monitor Your Emotions: Avoid gambling when you are feeling stressed, depressed, or upset. Emotional states can influence decision-making.
  10. Seek Support: If you feel that your gambling habits are becoming problematic, reach out to friends, family, or professionals for assistance. There are support groups and helplines available for those in need.

Remember, gambling should be a form of entertainment, and it’s important to maintain control and keep it enjoyable. If you ever feel that your gambling is getting out of hand, don’t hesitate to seek help.


If you feel that you may be dedicating excessive time or finances to gambling in an arcade, betting shop, bingo venue, or casino, please reach out to our team at and we will exclude you from our gambling offers and newsletters.

Alternatively, you may self-exclude from each gambling provider individually. Every gambling provider in the UK is obligated to offer consumers this choice, ensuring that individuals who have completed the self-exclusion process can be denied service and restricted from gambling for the specified duration.
