At 21Nova Sports we want to make sure that you have the most enjoyable gambling experience possible. Gambling is most enjoyable when the gambler acts responsibly and as such we are fully committed to a responsible gambling program.
We work with regulators and a number of gambling charities in order to bring customers a number of tools that may be used to help control and limit gambling. However, while we are happy to provide customers with tools, the ultimate responsibility lies with the individual to control their gambling. If you think that this is an issue then please seek advice from a gambling charity.
There are a number of signs that may suggest someone has a problem with gambling. If they are regularly skipping work to gamble, if they lie to cover up the amount of money or time spent gambling, if they gamble away money needed for food or other essentials, if they get into debt because of gambling, if they borrow money specifically for gambling and so on.
If you are concerned about yourself, a friend or a family member then there are a number of things that you can do. The best course of action is to contact a gambling charity such as Gamblers Anonymous (www.gamblersanonymous.org.uk) or GamCare (www.gamcare.org.uk). There is also the National Gambling Helpline (0808 802 0133 or the website www.gambleaware.co.uk).
To avoid developing a problem with gambling there are a few simple steps that you can implement.
- Set a limit on spending, betting and losses before you begin to gamble.
- Set a deposit limit on your account.
- Set a time limit for your gambling session.
- Make sure you have completed all your necessary tasks for the day before starting to gamble.
- Never treat gambling as a source of income.
- Don’t gamble when drinking or if in therapy for a dependency.
There are a number of ways that you can limit your account such as setting a deposit limit, set restrictions of which areas of the website you can visit, set session time reminders or set a Short Time out to your account to lock your account for a specified period.
