Responsible Gambling and Bankroll Management at Online Casinos
December 25, 2017
Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for online gambling and it’s also a time when people tend to drink much more than they would than at any other time of the year. The best thing to do would be to try and avoid drinking alcohol altogether, especially if you want to play in the real money mode at any of our top-rated online casinos. Also avoid gambling while under the influence of any other substances because you will only end up losing.
When you launch certain online casino games you will notice that the default stake can sometimes be quite high. Don’t just go ahead and hit spin, especially if you don’t have much bankroll to begin with. Use the player controls beneath the reels to reduce your stake. For example you may launch an online slot and notice that the stake is set to $/€/£2.50 (or equivalent currency value) per spin. You should be able to reduce this to as low as $/€/£0.25 per spin.
If you feel as though you’re on a winning streak then it might be a good idea to increase this stake for a few spins and then you can reduce it as soon as you feel as though you’re on a losing streak, or just close the game altogether and then come back another time. If you earn, say $/€/£500 per week, be sensible and perhaps just deposit $/€/£20.00 to $/€/£50.00 of this. If you end up winning $/€/£100.00 you could withdraw this amount and leave the original deposit amount in your account for another day.
Better still, you could set deposit limits, spending limits and/or session time limits. When setting deposit limits you can set daily, weekly and monthly limits and setting these limits is a great way to control how much you spend in the casino. If you don’t set these limits it can be far too easy to spend more than you originally planned. These limits can only be set when logged in to your account. If you can’t seem to find out where to set your limits the best thing to do would be to contact the toll-free player support.
These are just some of the things you should remember when you attempt to play in the real money mode at any of our top-rated online casinos, but also remember to NEVER chase your losses and NEVER gamble as a main form of income. Only ever gamble for fun and only gamble on occasion. Try not to gamble every day and try not to gamble just out of necessity.
