GP Casino strongly believes that a pleasurable gambling experience is also a conscientious and responsible one. We take it upon ourselves to promote responsible gambling and advise our players to adhere to the following guidelines:
Fix a budget : It is important to establish wagers, purchase and loss limitations before you begin to gamble. You can fix daily deposit limits to your personal account by contacting our Customer Services Department on 0800 085 6296.
Limit your play: Restrict your gambling to certain periods of time. Take note of how long you are spending and log-out when appropriate.
Do not allow gambling to infringe on any other of your day to day obligations.
Do not gamble when under the influence of alcohol or other substances.
Do not gamble if you are recovering from any form of substance dependency.
Do not gamble as a means of income.
Do not gamble as a means of settling unresolved debts.
For further details on responsible gambling, please consult gambleaware.co.uk. For additional guidance regarding gambling problems you can contact Gamblers Anonymous at www.gamblersanonymous.org.uk. You can also contact GamCare at www.gamcare.org.uk or on their UK based helpline on 0845 600 0133.
Gambling Therapy is a professional support organization which aims to help those experiencing gambling problems. It is important to recognize that the most difficult stage for a sufferer may be recognizing that they have a problem at all. The following questions are designed to help you identify whether this is the case:
Do you skip either work or studies in order to pursue your gambling?
Do you use gambling to relieve boredom, sadness or distress?
Do you experience feelings of loss, helplessness or a compulsion to continue gambling if you have exhausted all your funds?
Do you use up everything you have before deciding to stop?
Do you ever feel the need to conceal or lie about how much time and money you have spent?
Do you receive negative comments regarding your gambling?
Have you ever had to steal, lie or borrow funds in order to continue playing and/or settle gambling debts?
Do you preserve your ‘gambling money’ for playing only rather than for other activities or pursuits?
Do you find yourself distanced from families or friends?
Have you lost interest in other pursuits?
Do you feel compelled to win back losses immediately after you have just lost?
Do you find yourself gambling following disagreements and frustrations or in distressing circumstances?
Has gambling ever provoked depression or suicidal thoughts?
If you have found yourself responding ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you may be suffering from a gambling problem. The more frequently you have responded ‘yes’, the more probable that this is the case. For professional advice and/ or counseling, please consult one of the aforementioned organizations or refer to the Gambling Therapy website at www.gamblingtherapy.org.
If gambling has stopped being a source of pleasure for you, then it may be advisable to restrict your activity. GP Casino provides a self-exclusion facility which allows a player to request closure of their personal account for a period lasting between 6 months to 5 years. Please note that once this has been activated, a player is unable to resume access to his account until the designated time period has elapsed. If you are interested in using this facility, please contact our Customer Service Staff on 0800 085 6296.
Establishing a deposit limit is another means by which we help our players control their gambling. Visit ‘Change Account Details’ in the ‘My Account’ section of the casino and fix the daily deposit limit authorized to your account. You can alter this amount at will but all changes will encounter a 24-48 hour delay from the time of request.
UK law stipulates that players must be over 18 years of age in order to gamble legally in the UK. GP Casino may demand proof-of-age from potential players and, if necessary, seek third party verification. We reserve the right to suspend a player’s account and/or withhold funds until this information has been properly verified.
Please note that age specifications are particular to each country so it is important to check the law in your own country.
We also strongly suggest that you protect the privacy of your account and do not disclose your account number, username or password to anyone. For further details of GP Casino’s age verification procedures, please click here.
