To ensure that your gambling and betting with us is enjoyable and responsible, heed our suggestions. Here are some tips to use:
Your betting/gambling history
You may check all of your prior bets, withdrawals, deposits, and your current balance in the “Betting History” domain. There are a number of filters that let you do more focused searches. You can see exactly what, when, and how much you bet, as well as your winnings and losses there.
We are aware that gambling addiction has a negative impact on gamblers’ families and social networks in addition to themselves. These circumstances are quite challenging to handle. The goal is to be encouraging and provide players more avenues for assistance when they are prepared to consider them. Please refer to the section under “Appeal for Help,” which contains a list of the top organizations that specialize in directly assisting those who have gambling addictions.
We suggest contacting www.gamanon.org.uk, the website of Gam-Anon, an organization that specializes in offering help and support in such situations, for anyone close to betting participants who would wish to help them.
