Betting on real money games can be enormous fun but only when it is done in a rational and controlled way. When you can’t do without gaming or spend money you can ill-afford to lose, it is a sign of a potential problem. At Uptown Pokies we understand the gravity of compulsive gambling. We know it can ruin lives.
To ensure our players have a safe environment to gamble in, we have integrated a few helpful features into our gaming applications. We have also implemented systems and processes to identify and tackle underage gambling. Here is how we are advocating responsible gambling at Uptown Pokies:
If you think your gambling is becoming a problem, you have the option to lock your Uptown Pokies account. It is a voluntary action that cannot be undone until the required ‘time out’ period has elapsed. You can choose a cool off period of anything between 24 hours and six months.
If you do not want to stop gaming altogether, adjusting the maximum deposit limits can help you control what you spend. Limits can be set daily, weekly or monthly and are at your discretion. Our customer support team is the point of contact for both voluntary self-exclusion and capped deposits.
Track Gaming Activity
Another way to increase awareness of how much you are betting, winning and losing is to track your gaming activity. Game history is easily accessible and features relevant data for each betting session. Account history is an up to date record of deposits and withdrawals over a specified period.
