At Matchbook we take Responsible Gambling very seriously and we want the Matchbook experience to be enjoyable for all our users. We understand the effects gaming issues can have on an individual, their day to day lives and their families. We believe it is important that all of our customers are aware of the tools we have available to help them gamble responsibly.
Gambling should be an enjoyable leisure activity, so to ensure you remain in control, it may help you to remember the following:
- You should only gamble what you can afford to lose.
- Avoid chasing losses.
- Keep track of the time and amount you spend gambling.
Matchbook offers the following tools to manage your gambling activity:
RECOGNISING A GAMBLING PROBLEM
If you are concerned that you may have a gambling problem then please ask yourself the following questions or use GamCare’s Self-Assessment Tool.
DEPOSIT LIMITS/ LOSS LIMITS FOR CASINO
Deposit Limits allow you to manage the amount of money you are able to deposit into your account over a Daily, Weekly or Monthly period.
If you want to take a short break from betting and gaming with Matchbook, you can do so by taking a Time-Out for a minimum of 24 hours and a maximum of 6 weeks.
If you want to prevent yourself from gambling for a longer period of time, you can self-exclude and your account will be closed for a minimum of 6 months. If you take this option we would recommend you also self-exclude from all betting and gaming operators you may hold accounts with.
