WHAT IS RESPONSIBLE GAMING?


Responsible gaming means a rational and sensible approach to gaming, which takes into account the personal circumstances of the individual in order to prevent gaming becoming a problem.

Responsible gaming means that customers make informed and considered decisions with the aim of gaining enjoyment and pleasure, and that the stake never exceeds what the individual can afford.
