How To Set Limits On Your Gambling
- Here's a general step-by-step guide to setting limits on your gambling account:
Log In To Your Account
Access the online casino website or app where you have your account. Log in using your username and password.
Navigate to Account Settings or Profile
Once logged in, navigate to the 'Account' or 'Profile' section, typically found in the top corner or sidebar.
Find Responsible Gambling or Limits Section
Within your account settings or profile, look for a section or tab titled 'Responsible Gambling', 'Account Limits', or something similar.
Choose The Type of Limit
Deposit LimitsDecide how much you want to limit your deposits to (daily, weekly, or monthly).
Loss LimitsSet a maximum amount you're willing to lose over a specific time frame.
Wager LimitsDetermine a cap on how much you'll bet in a single instance or over a period.
Session LimitsSpecify the maximum time you want to spend in a single gaming session.
Confirm Your Choices
After setting your desired limits, there will often be a 'Save' or 'Confirm' button. Click on it. Some platforms may ask for your password again or send a verification code to your registered phone number or email for added security.
Log Out and Restart
It's a good idea to log out and log back in to ensure your changes have taken effect.
Monitor Your Play
Always be aware of your gambling habits. If you feel the limits you set are not adequate, you can adjust them as needed, but some casinos may impose a waiting period before changes take effect
Remember that while setting limits is a tool to help you manage your gambling, it's vital to assess your behavior and seek professional help if you feel you're developing a gambling problem.
