Winners Gamble Responsibly
Information on Keeping Control
Winner wants our customers to engage in responsible gambling. We strongly advise our players not to gamble unless they know the facts. Being responsible about gambling means knowing whether to gamble and when, and how much money or time to spend at your computer / mobile / tablet.
ADVICE ON GAMBLING RESPONSIBLY
Following these simple rules will help to ensure that you gamble responsibly:
• Decide on the maximum amount that you can afford to lose before you play and stick to it.
• Decide on a time limit for your gambling session and stick to it.
• While playing, ensure that you take regular breaks.
• Only gamble with money that you can afford to lose and under no circumstances borrow money to gamble.
• Do not gamble if you are feeling depressed, under stress or in any other situation that may impair your judgment.
• Ensure that you have a healthy balance of activities in your life aside from gambling.
Awareness information and training are given to all Winner Management and Customer Service Support agents related to problem gambling issues.
PREVENTING UNDER AGE GAMBLING
Gambling under the age of 18 is against the law in most parts of the world. At Winner Casino we have imposed a number of strong measures to prevent minors from gambling.
Important: If you are concerned that your children have access to gambling sites or other inappropriate material online, you can restrict access to such sites by using one of the many Internet filter programs available, such as Net Nanny, CyberSitter, CyberSnoop, CyberPatrol.
A number of parental filtering solutions can be used to monitor or restrict access to the internet such as:
www.netnanny.com - filtering software that protects children from inappropriate web content.
www.cybersitter.com - filtering software which allows parents to add their own sites to block.
www.cyberpatrol.com - internet filtering, blocking and monitoring software for Windows
