The majority of our customers enjoy gambling and do so in a safe and responsible manner. However for a small number of people, gambling can be damaging and impact their lives.
If you think that you might have a problem, we’ve prepared a few self-assessment questions below that may help you to decide:
The more questions that you answer ‘yes’ to, the more likely it is that you have a gambling problem. We recommend that you speak to someone about your answers if you have answered ‘yes’ to the above. Contact our Customer Support Team or a problem gambling support service.
Furthermore, we recommend that you consider a Time-Out or Self-Exclusion.
