Staying in Control

Below, you will find useful suggestions listed to keep gambling fun. While we hope you may never need to resort to professional help from the above-mentioned organisations, it is good to keep yourself in check by following the tips hereunder:

Create Your Own, Realistic Deposit Limits

Limit your deposits in such a way that each day, week or month you are able to cap the amount you put into your account. Moreover, every operator can set specific limits or controls to help players spend in a controlled manner.

Schedule Some Cooling-off Periods

It is certainly not a bad idea to take break from the game and block your access every so often. This rings truer if you have a feeling that it might be getting slightly out of control. If this is the case, then we advise you to take some time away from the operator by scheduling a cool-off period between one and 30 days. During this time, operators shouldn’t communicate to you with sign-up bonuses or free spins, otherwise it would defeat the purpose of the cooling-off period entirely.

Self-exclusion Could be Another Option

Each operator is expected to offer players with the option to self-exclude themselves from gambling online. Players can set different time limits – usually from at least one year or in certain situations, even permanently. Gambling operators will suspend all marketing and emails to you for the duration of the exclusion period, that way it is an effective step towards a having a potential problem.

Did you know that the UK has a self-exclusion system called GAMSTOP which allows players to self-exclude from every UK licensed gambling site? And once you self-exclude from online casinos, this system automatically excludes you from bricks and mortar betting shops - to guarantee no form of gambling is practised if it seems to be getting out of control.

Take Social Media Break

Better yet, why not take a complete Social Media Break? But if you believe you are more than capable of keeping your social media account active, we at least advise you to stop following gambling operator social media pages and/or casino bonus or sports tipster pages that encourage bonuses. Otherwise you might be tempted to get back on the bandwagon before you actually should. 

Gambling Blocking Software

If you think you need something more effective and long-term to help restrict your gambling, luckily there are even software tools specifically for this. You can install such programs on your computer or mobile devices to block access to gambling websites – check-out Betfilter, Gamblock or PlayScan.

Protecting Children and under 18s

Our team at casinofreespinsclub.com takes responsible gaming very seriously, which is why we want to prevent anyone who is a minor or below the age of 18 from gambling or accessing an online gambling website – because this is considered as illegal activity.

Furthermore, gambling operators follow very strict protocls to confirm age and identity by using KYC and Bank-ID processes.

Companies prohibited to advertise gambling in ways that might appeal to children or those under the age of 18. However, we still ask that you take reasonable steps to prevent anyone under the legal age of gambling from accessing online gambling products or casino, sports betting or even affiliate websites. But we can only restrict Underage gambling to a certain degree. You should also take the necessary precautions if you have youngsters in your household. This can be done by following the below steps:  

  • Never make gambling look like it is 'just a game' which can be accessed by anyone under the legal age
  • Do not place bets on their behalf
  • Never leave under 18s unattended or near your computer/mobile if you have gambling websites open on your desktop or device
  • Never let minors or underaged individuals access your credit card or bank account details
  • Never opt for the 'remember password' choice when accessing online gambling products
  • Use separate and secure login details for anyone who accesses your computer.
  • Read up on child-protection software, such as Cyber patrolNet Nanny or CYBERsitter to block gambling sites from minors accessing the internet.
