Responsible gaming

Gaming is a fun and exciting entertainment option, and, combined with the casino atmosphere, it provides an even more thrilling experience. Gaming is an attractive option if you want to risk and try your luck. It is safe as long as the risk-taking gets kept under control. Most casino visitors enjoy this kind of entertainment without any problems, but there is a small number of people who lose control over their lives. In a winning phase, they can believe that they are able to influence the results of the game while being wholly convinced that their luck will return soon in a losing phase. While winning, you may discover that you use all the money you won for more games, but when losing, you continue playing with the aim of regaining it. In such cases, gaming is no longer fun entertainment but rather an obsession.

Gambling can be addictive and diagnosed as an impulse control disorder, but at the same time, this kind of emotional disorder is treatable. Most people keep their gaming under control and are not in danger of becoming compulsive gamblers. Various studies have shown that the number of compulsive gamblers totals about 5 - 10 percent of frequent casino visitors.

 

Rules below can help to have a safe gambling experience:

  1. Gamble within affordable to you.
  2. Do not chase losses. Don't try to get your money back quickly – it could cause more trouble.
  3. Track your playing time.
  4. In addition to gambling, find time for other activities. If gambling is your only entertainment, think about whether it's really worth it.
  5. Take a break from time to time. If you gamble constantly, you may lose your sense of time and reality.
  6. Do not gamble if you are drunk, irritated, or depressed. It can be crucial to decision-making.
  7. Think about how much time and money you spend on gambling.
  8. Learn about your chances of winning and how the products work.
  9. If you feel that something is wrong – seek help!

When does a player become an addict? It is the point where the private life of a compulsive gambler suffers because of the passion for gambling. It means you're willing to risk something you value in the hope of getting something of even greater value. There are numerous simple tests that can help identify gambling compulsion by assessing the symptoms of compulsive behavior. Signs indicating a disorder include the person's inability to stop gambling, borrowing money to gamble, and regarding money as a gaming supply rather than means of living. It also includes changes in the player's character, lying and secrecy, regretting gambling, being ashamed of it, as well as risking one's employment, family, significant relationships, etc., for the sake of gambling.

 

It is crucial to keep in mind that signs and symptoms of compulsive gambling (gambling disorder) include:

- Being preoccupied with gambling, such as constantly planning how to get more gambling money.

- Needing to gamble with increasing amounts of money to get the same thrill.

- Trying to control, cut back or stop gambling without success.

- Feeling restless or irritable when trying to cut down on gambling.

- Gambling to escape problems or relieve feelings of helplessness, guilt, anxiety, or depression.

- Trying to recover already lost money by gambling more (chasing losses).

- Lying to family members or others to hide the extent of your gambling.

- Jeopardizing or losing meaningful relationships, a job, school, or work opportunities because of gambling.

- Resorting to theft or fraud to get gambling money.

- Asking others to bail you out of financial trouble because you gambled your money away.

 

If you feel that any of these symptoms could be valid for you, it is advisable to seek professional help, as it is tough for people to overcome this kind of compulsive behavior on their own. Support from family and friends is also vital because compulsive gamblers generally cannot reach out and look for professional help.

Below are listed some of the common myths about gambling.

 

Myth: Gambling can be used as a source of earning money.

Fact: Even though you always have the chance to win, more often, it is a way of losing money. Gambling should be considered an entertaining activity, like paying for concert tickets or going out with friends. Even if you end up winning some money now and then, these winnings should not become something to depend on.

 

Myth: If you play long enough, you will end up winning.

Fact: “Almost” winning in no way means that a real win is just around the corner. Previous outcomes do not influence future gambling outcomes.

 

Myth: Tracking past results as you play can help you to predict future outcomes.

Fact: You can use knowledge to make an informed decision, but it will not determine the end result. Past performance will not prevent you from losing your contribution - this can happen even if the statistic is certain.

Check out your gaming account profile to set Self limitations.

If gambling is becoming a problem, visit your gaming account profile to set „Self exclusion“ status.

 

You can self-exclude yourself from betting for a period of six months to three years. After confirmation, you will not be able to make any bets on the OlyBet platform during the chosen period. Once the self-exclusion period is over, you can request the unblocking of your account by contacting our customer support live chat after logging in to your OlyBet account or by sending us a handwritten and signed request to support@olybet.com

Take extra precautions to secure your computer and mobile devices if you live with kids or teenagers.

 

1. You can configure mobile devices to require a passcode/faceID for unlocking.

2. On computers, password control can be enabled so that a password is required to access the desktop. It is a good habit in general and becomes even more crucial if you have young children or teenagers living with you.

3. Remember to keep your password and username private.

4. Use security software if you have young children or teens in your home to restrict the websites they may access, prevent file sharing, and have complete control over how they use the Internet.

 

Below is the list of some of those programs:

To avoid gambling addiction, players are recommended to set certain gaming limits for themselves, such as “no longer than an hour”, “no more than X Euros”, etc. Once a person has become a compulsive gambler it is possible to file a written application to be banned from a casino for a certain period. It is advisable to seek professional help as it is very tough for people to overcome this kind of compulsive behavior on their own. Support from family and friends is also vital because compulsive gamblers generally cannot reach out and look for professional help.
