HOW CAN I REDUCE THE RISK OF ADDICTION?
We have 8 rules to help play safely at Quasar Gaming:
- Only play the games at Quasar for recreational purposes NEVER as a career or way to generate a regular salary.
- When at a loss never try to double up or take unnecessary risks to chase a loss.
- Only play with money that can be lost comfortably. Daily, weekly or monthly limits are available.
- Never play at a casino when under the influence of alcohol, drugs or when feeling depressed or tired.
- Keep note of the amount of time spent online.
- Take regular breaks to stay fresh and alert.
- Before starting a casino session, have a loss limit in mind and make sure you adhere to it.
- Most importantly – Enjoy yourself, playing at your favourite casino should be fun not stressful.
If you feel that you are not able to enjoy the games pleasurably then you may be becoming dependent on gambling. If this is the case there are a number of specialist services and websites available to help with the problem. To take a self-assessment test go to a website like http://www.gamblersanonymous.org. This can help to determine whether gambling is or may become a problem for you.
