BigWins encourages responsible gambling habits so that players can have more fun while gaming
Before you start gambling at an online casino, you must understand that gambling is primarily a recreational activity. Despite all the warnings and regulations in place, there still is a small percentage of people who may lose control while gambling online. Therefore, it's crucial for you to keep track of the time and money you're spending on gambling daily. Keeping track ensures that gambling doesn't become a problem for you.
Borrowing money with the intent to gamble, spending more than your bankroll can handle, or using money that was saved for other purposes can lead to problems for yourself and others. Therefore, remember: it's important to be safe when gambling and to know when to stop.
Following these tips can help you to stay safe if you choose to gamble
Below, you can find helpful tips that will enable you to enjoy online casino games to the fullest.
Don't think of gambling as a way to make money
There are lots of different games to enjoy at BigWins Casino. However, sometimes people can get too focused on winning money and chasing losses, instead of just enjoying the games. This can lead to potential financial problems. Therefore, it's paramount to remember that gambling should always be for fun, and not used as a way to make money.
Only gamble with money you can afford to lose
Gamble within your weekly entertainment budget, not with your rent money or bills budget.
Set a money limit in advance
Figure out a budget of how much you can afford to lose before beginning to play. When this allotted gambling budget it's gone – it's over! If you win, you've been lucky, but don't be disappointed if your luck doesn't continue.
Set a time limit in advance
When playing crypto casino games, it's very easy to lose track of time. You should set a time limit or alarm, and when the time's up, stop gambling!
Never chase your losses
If you lose your whole set money limit and then immediately try to win some of it back, then you haven't really set a money limit. Chasing your losses usually just leads to bigger losses. Remember to take a break if you find yourself on a losing streak, no matter whether you are playing RNG games such as slots or live casino games.
Don't gamble when you're depressed or upset
Decision-making can be harder when you're gambling while being stressed or emotionally upset. Therefore, make sure you only gamble when you're feeling happy and clear-headed.
Balance gambling with other activities
When gambling becomes your only form of entertainment, it's highly unlikely that you're still gambling recreationally, meaning your gambling may have even become a problem. Despite the fact it is fun, still, make sure gambling isn't your only pastime.
Take frequent breaks
Gambling continuously can lead you to lose track of time and lose your perspective. Take frequent breaks for some air or a bite to eat
Don't drink or use drugs when gambling
Drugs and alcohol cloud your good judgment which stands as your main line of defence against letting gambling get out of hand
If you're having a feeling that your gambling habits are getting out of hand, or you outright think you might have a gambling problem, please take the Self-Assessment Test. The results from this test will help you understand your gambling habits and see if there are any potential issues. If you're worried about the results of your test, you can take a break or contact our Customer Support for more help and advice.
Take a break / Self-Exclusion
If gambling is negatively impacting your life, and the limits you've set do not contribute towards controlling your play, you can always block access to your account for as long as you need. As an extreme measure, you can even permanently block your account (self-exclusion). Please contact our customer support, and they'll help you with your request.
