Responsible Gambling - What you need to know

Responsible gambling is a broad concept that encompasses many things and includes both the operators of gambling companies as well as the users of these facilities. It is a concept that was developed to protect operators and users alike. The main principles of responsible gambling as well as what you can do to be a responsible gambler are discussed below.

Responsible gambling has five main areas from the side of the operators.

The prevention of underage gambling.

The protection of vulnerable gamblers.

The prevention of criminal activities.

Ethical marketing practices.

The Prevention of Underage Gambling.

The rise in online gaming has been fantastic in that has opened up ways for people from across the world to get involved in gambling. However, it also means it is easier for those who are not of legal age to gamble (18 or 21 depending on the country) can gamble. This means that operators need to take the necessary steps to prevent minors from using their services.

The Protection of Vulnerable Gamblers.

Not everyone is able to handle gambling. Vulnerable gamblers are those who are likely to become addicted to betting games. There are a number of measures in place, like hotlines, to protect these groups of people.

The Prevention of Criminal Activities.

Just like any institution that deals with people’s finances online, online casinos are often the target of criminal activities. This comes in the form of malicious software used to obtain users financial details. A key component of responsible gambling is putting in software to prevent this from happening.

Ethical Marketing Practices..

In the same way that vulnerable and underage groups should be protected from gambling, casinos should not target these groups. They should also not use advertising and marketing campaigns that have misleading information in them. This is to protect them from lawsuits as much as it is to protect vulnerable groups of people.

Next, there are a number of ways that you can be a responsible gambler. This means that you can enjoy the past time without running huge amounts of risks. It can all be broken down into the following four simple guidelines:

Don’t gamble every day.

Set a limit.

Don’t mix alcohol and gambling.

Don’t Treat it as a Source of Income.

It can be tempting to think of the winnings that you get from gambling as a source of income. However, it is important to remember that gambling is not a consistent way to earn money. Gambling is all about chance and this means that you can’t expect to pay your bills on a regular basis with this. Think of gambling as an added extra and not something you can rely on.

Don’t Gamble Every Day.

Gambling is fun; there is no doubt about that. This means that it can be alluring to go online every day. However, unless you have mountains of self-control and time, this should be avoided as it could become a problem later on. Rather, spend time with your family and go online on certain days or occasions. Following this guideline will ensure that you maintain a healthy balance between the fun of gambling and living an exciting life.

Set a Limit.

This is probably the most important way that you can be a responsible gambler. Decide on what you can afford to lose or part with and make that your limit. Once you have spent the amount, call it a day – or night. No matter how much you have won or lost.

It is important to remember what your limit is when you are a winning streak as it can be tempting to keep on going with the hopes that your winning streak will continue. This may be true in some cases, but what often happens is that bigger losses are incurred. Whatever you win on top of your limit should be set aside instead. You can always gamble another time.

Don’t Mix Alcohol and Gambling.

Alcohol is known for its inhibiting qualities. It often leads to poorer judgement and can make you an irresponsible gambler without you being aware of it. When you are gambling stick to water or soft drinks to make sure that the decisions you make are always the best ones.

If you think that someone you know and care about has a gambling problem, you can also take part in responsible gambling by contacting the responsible gambling authorities in your area.
