MYBCasino Supports and Commits to Responsible Gaming
While MYBCasino strongly believes, and commits to providing its members with a safe and secure platform for online gaming and gambling, the company also believes that its players must take online gambling and gaming with the seriousness and responsibility that it deserves. It is because of this belief that we have our Responsible Gaming terms and conditions clearly outlined for our customers below.
Whether you are a seasoned for first-time player, online gambling calls for a lot of responsibility on your part, which means treating the activity enjoyably and sensibly. For example, if betting turns from a leisurely activity to an addictive behavior that you can’t do without, it can have dire ramifications on your finances, health and life in general. It is with this in mind that we always sensitize our players on how to be responsible gamers, which includes knowing when gambling is becoming a problem to you and finding relevant solutions to it.
At MYBCasino, we also understand that we have a commitment on our part to creating an enjoyable and safe online casino environment, no wonder we have a section of this write-up purely dedicated to covering and describing some of the ways we have put in place to ensure that our players recognize the possible risks of gambling. If you read through our Responsible Gaming T’s and C’s and have any lingering concerns, questions or inquiries, feel free to contact our Customer Support at support@MYBCasino.ag and we will be more than happy to assist you in a timely way and to the best of our abilities.
The 10 Cardinal Rules of Responsible Gambling
With the aim of making gambling safer and more fun, increasing awareness about the risks of gambling and helping those players with a gambling problem; we have compiled the following 10 golden rules of responsible gambling. Please keep these key rules in mind at all times:
- Don’t bet for the money; bet for fun! Gambling should be for fun and entertainment only and not done for money-making purposes.
- If you make money from gambling, treat it as a bonus for entertainment, while treating your losses as necessary costs for fun. If you are the type to bet and regret (especially when you lose), please keep away from gambling.
- Set limits and stick to them. Whether it is about your time or money, ensure that you do not go over your limits. Doing so could easily lead to huge losses, both on your time and money.
- Have a safe bankroll system. It can’t be stressed enough about you having a monetary budget (especially for real money players). By doing so, you will be able to control how much you want to spend or can afford to lose if things don’t go the winning way.
- Prepare to deal with both winning and losing. Nobody wins every time and neither do you lose every time. Keeping that in mind, always be prepared to accept and deal with both options, which are part and parcel of gambling.
- Know the signs of having a gambling problem. From feeling too guilty to having major depressions or even spending your time and money haphazardly when gambling, there are plenty of signs to show when you are developing a gambling problem. You see any of these (or any other related signs), please seek help as soon as possible.
- Bet only what you can afford. Don’t steal, borrow, gamble on credit or bet what you cannot afford to lose.
- Don’t let gambling control your life. Have time for family, friends, work and other crucial activities rather than letting gambling to be everything in your life.
- Don’t chase your losses. Having limits will help you avoid breaking this rule. Everyone has a bad streak every once in a while, so recognize when you are having one and put a pause/halt to your gambling endeavors instead of chasing your losses by gambling more and wasting more time and money in the process.
- Have Fun. Gambling is and should always be done for fun. Don’t do it for the money or let it become an addictive habit or a source of negative physical and emotional issues in your life.
How to know if you are developing a gambling addiction/problem?
Due to the thrilling nature of playing casino games and the fun that comes with winning, most players tend to turn a blind eye to the signs that show the development of gambling as an addiction or problem in their lives. By the time they put a stop to it, it is mostly when their lives have been adversely ruined or affected by their gambling problems. To avoid becoming one of such people, ask yourself the following questions and seek relevant help if you find out that you have, or are seemingly developing, a gambling addiction/problem.
- Is gambling interfering with important things in your daily life like spending time with family or working?
- Are you betting more than you can afford to lose?
- Do you roll out big bankrolls and bet large amounts of money just for excitement?
- Have you sold any possessions, gotten into bad debts or credit trouble for the sake of gambling?
- Are you gambling because you are trying to recover previous losses?
- Are you currently recovering from any addictive and personality disorders and are therefore using gambling as your “out” from such issues?
- Do you gamble under the influence of alcohol or other abused substances?
- Do you gamble as your almost exclusive way of escaping from boredom, worry or any other form of trouble?
- Has your gambling behavior caused you issues like stress, anxiety or depression?
- Are you dealing with any financial problems as a result of your gambling habits?
If your answer to any or all of the above questions is “Yes”, then it may be a sign that have an issue with gambling as an addiction or compulsive behavior. And if that’s the case, then it would be in your best interest to seek help from forums like online support groups, gambling psychologists and organizations that deal with such problems. Some of the top organizations you can get in touch with for help and advice include:
- Gamble Aware
- Gambling Therapy
- Gamblers Anonymous
