Play it safe: play with limits

An ancient gambling proverb says, “Know your limits and stick to them”. That means you should only gamble with what you can afford to lose, and only gamble for as long as it remains fun. This is the key to a safe online casino experience.

You can be easily lose sight of your limits  during gameplay, so FairPlay Casino has equipped your player account with a few nifty safeguards you can configure to suit your needs and play safe. These include:

  • Session limits: these are little reminders that appear after set amounts of time to remind you just how long you’ve been playing for. They also come with options to continue playing, or to log out there and then.
    Set session limits

  • Deposit limits: your account comes with default deposit limits, which limit the amount you can deposit per day or per week. Should you feel the need, you can lower this limit. And if you want to increase it again, you can do. However, the increase will take seven days to process.
    Set deposit limits

  • Loss limits: if you’re worried about losing too much, you can limit the amount of money you can lose per week.
    Set loss limits

Limit increase timeframes

We don’t want you to make a decision you’ll regret instantly. So to ensure you continue to have a safe, enjoyable playing experience, limit increases and removals won’t take effect immediately:

  • limit increases/removals only take effect after seven days.



Time-outs and self-exclusion

If you’re still concerned that your gambling is becoming a problem, you can always self-exclude yourself from our Website .  This will suspend your account while you take a long break from gambling. To help you avoid temptation during this time, we’ll be sure not to send you any marketing material.

  • During this time, you’ll be blocked from doing the following:

  • Depositing any funds

  • Playing on Fairplay Casino or any related site for real money

  • Logging into your playing account

In addition Fairplay provides the following self-exclusion options to players:

  • Temporary, where you cannot login for a self-determined number of days. (Freezing your account)

  • Permanent, where you will be excluded from logging in at Fairplay Casino indefinitely. (Deactivating your account)

Please be sure to withdraw any remaining funds in your account prior to self-excluding yourself. Once your account has been locked, you won’t be able to log in to request a withdrawal!


Underage gambling

Gambling can have financial implications and should therefore only be enjoyed by adults.

  • Fairplay Casino requires its registered players to be at least 18 years of age, or the age of majority in their country of residence in the event that this is older.

To assist us with this, Fairplay Casino will check a player’s details against known third party databases to ensure customers are of age. If we suspect that you are underage, we won’t issue you with an account. No winnings will be paid out to accounts belonging to underage players.

Fairplay Casino has the obligation to report any person who abuses of this feature to law enforcement agencies. This means that you can get into trouble with the law of your country.
 

Filtering software

To further protect yourself you can try installing internet filtering software on your computer. These programs prevent you and others from using your computer to access online online content.

We recommend  NetNanny and CyberPatrol, although other filtering software is available.

 

Further assistance

Although these steps are designed to limit, or completely halt, your gambling at Fairplay Casino, you may wish to seek further assistance. If you suspect you have a gambling problem, you should consult an expert at the earliest opportunity.
