Gambling should be treated as a high old time, but not the income source. While the majority of players treat gambling as a kind of leisurely activity and only risk affordable amounts of money, for others this may become a real challenge. In order to maintain the control over your gambling passion we remind you that you should always consider the following aspects:
Gambling should be moderate and it should be treated as a form of leisure, but not a way of earning money.
Do not chase your losses — you will always have a chance to win some other time.
Play only when you can cover your losses.
Control the time and money you spend.
If you need to take a break in gambling, send a request to our online support service, and we will exclude you for a time.
If you need to discuss your problems, which may arise during gambling, please, contact one of the organizations listed below.

Have you ever lied about the real sum of money or time that you spent gambling?
Have you ever lied, stolen or borrowed in order to get money for betting?
Do you reluctantly spend your ‘gambling money’ on something else?
