Responsible Gaming

 

Playing at Stake7 should be fun and enjoyable. Our mission is to entertain you but we understand the potential risks of problem gambling. We have provided below some ways to make sure your gambling is within controllable limits along with suggesting some places to go to if you need help.

 

Here are some tips:

  • Jobs are for making money, but gambling is for entertainment. Treat it as an entertainment expense, like a ticket to the cinema, that pint of beer after work, rather than a way to make money.
  • Only gamble with money you can afford to lose.
  • Know your limits and be clear about them before you start betting.
  • Take a break. Gambling continuously without taking a break will impact your judgement.
  • Don’t gamble when you’re upset or depressed. Talk to mates or family or get in touch with a Help Organization
  • Do other stuff. Sometimes less is more, so make gambling a part of a well-balanced lifestyle.
  • Don’t go chasing losses. Set your limits, stay in control.

 

 

KNOW YOUR LIMITS

 

Since at Stake7 we believe that your ability to play safely is very important, we have tools that are there for you to use if you feel the need to have a break.

 

In the limit page of your account you will find:

 

Deposit Limits

 

This will limit the amount you can deposit during a certain period. Once you have reached this sum you will not be able to make any new deposits until your limit is reset.

 

Wager and Loss Limits

 

You can both limit the total amount you can bet during a certain period and the net amount you can lose. When you have reached these sums, you will not be able to place any new bets until your limit is reset.

 

Session Limits

 

.It’s important that you keep track of the amount of time you spend gambling. We recommend you take note of the time you start gambling set Session Limits and keep an eye on the clock to make sure that you aren’t spending more time than you should be. We also strongly advise you to keep your device clock enabled whilst gambling so you can easily refer to it.

 

Take a Break

 

You may feel in control but would like a break to consider your gambling, or maybe you are in the middle of a busy time and don’t want to spend time or energy on gambling. If this is the case, taking a break may help you.

 

Take a Break can be applied to your account from 24 hours up to a maximum of 30 days During this period, you will be restricted from accessing your Stake7 account and we will stop any contact or marketing offers.

 

Self-Exclusion

 

Should you be unable to control your gambling and decide to make a much longer break or even permanent, then it is possible to self-exclude. Choosing to self-exclude will mean that it will not be possible to reopen your account once in effect for periods ranging from six months to 1 year or even Permanent by clicking here. In order to request a longer self-exclusion please contact us via live chat or email [email protected]

 

 

SELF ASSESSMENT TEST
