Safer Gambling Week runs from 19th-25th November 2020 and here at Spin and Win, we’re hoping to create awareness of how to play responsibly and offer tips to help you keep it fun when gaming. Here are some key things to remember whilst gambling:
• Set a limit
Having a budget and sticking to it can help you keep a cap on how much you spend whilst playing, making sure you only gamble what you can afford. You can also set a Net Deposit Loss Limit on your Spin and Win account to help you keep in control – simply go to the cashier and select the ‘My Limits’ tab.
• Losing is Part of the Game
Losing isn’t fun, but if you gamble, you have to accept that sometimes it’s going to happen. Never chase your losses, as you could end up spending more than you can afford. Instead, leave the game for a while and grab a tea or coffee.
• Keep Track of How Long You’re Playing
Gambling for hours at a time can be a sign that something is wrong. To make sure you step back every now and then, set a Game Session Reminder. To do this, go to My Account and select the Responsible Gaming tab in the My Account Settings section. You can choose to have them pop-up every few minutes or every few hours to help you keep track. We’ll also give you a little nudge once an hour to see if you’re ready for a short break.
• Take a Break
Need to take a bit more time away from playing? Choose the ‘’Take A Break’’ tool – again, this can be found in the Responsible Gaming tab. This gives you the option to lock your account for between 24 hours and six weeks – simply pick the length of time that feels right for you.
• Let’s Talk About Safer Gambling
The Spin and Win Customer Support team is always on hand. If you have any questions or concerns about your gaming habits, you can contact them using our 24/7 customer service line or via our Live Chat facility. Need a chat? All the details can be found here.
