Responsible Gaming Tips

At WPT Global we believe that any of our products should be played for fun and entertainment however we acknowledge that gambling can be addictive to some. Below you can find some helpful tips on how to control your gambling.

  1. Decide on a deposit or wager limit ahead of time and stick to it
  2. Never borrow money to gamble
  3. Take frequent breaks
  4. Never gamble when highly depressed or stressed and stick to low risk gambling by realizing it is only a game
  5. Only gamble with money set aside for entertainment purposes and never with money for everyday expenses

In cases where you are concerned about your gambling behaviour and whether this has affected your or your families life you can always ask yourself a few questions.

  1. Have you ever lied to cover up the money or time you have gambled?
  2. Has anyone ever criticised your gambling?
  3. Do you neglect personal priorities and commitments?
  4. Have you lost interest in your family, friends or pastimes due to gambling?
  5. After losing do you chase your losses and try to win them back?
  6. Do you feel depressed or suicidal because of gambling?

If your answer to any of the above is \'YES\' then we suggest that you take immediate action BEFORE it becomes a worse problem. There are many organizations that provide professional help and may help you control the problem.
