For free help and advice about responsible gambling and problem gambling we advise you to get in touch with reputable, non-profit organisations such as GamCare, Gamble Aware, Gamblers Anonymous and Gambling Therapy, to mention just a few trusted organisations. To prevent underage gambling you may also want to look in to things like Cypberpatrol, Net Nanny (which is now part of Net Nanny) and CYBERsitter.

If you feel as though, a close friend or family member has developed a gambling problem, you or the person that you know must try to avoid gambling in the real money mode at online casinos altogether and you should try and get in touch with one of these organisations immediately. If you answer yes to any of the following questions then it’s also definitely time to get help:

Has gambling caused you any health issues such as stress or anxiety? Do you happen to be recovering from an addictive disorder? Have you ever gambled with much larger sums of money to try and achieve the same level of excitement? Has your gambling ever caused your or your family financial problems? Do you ever try to make up for gambling losses that you have incurred?

Do you ever gamble while intoxicated (alcohol or drugs)? Do you ever gamble more than you can afford? Have you ever borrowed money or taken out a loan just to gamble in the real money mode? To escape trouble or boredom, have you ever gambled just for the sake of it? The good news is that there are now plenty of useful online casino bankroll management tools available and these effective tools are designed to help players control how much they spend at online casinos.

For example you can take a ‘time out’ and when you do this you won’t be able to gamble at the casino for however long you selected. In other words you could take time out for six months, one year, or even five years if you think that gambling has got the better of you. You can also set deposit limits, and/or spending limits and/or session time limits and we recommend setting these limits as soon as you register a real money account at any of our top-rated online casinos.

Remember that the house always wins! Never chase your losses and if you feel as though you have hit a losing streak the best thing to do would be to sign out of your account and then just try again another day. Make sure that you always gamble for fun and treat any losses as the cost of entertainment. Never gamble out of habit or necessity and if you can stick to some of these golden rules then you should be ok.
