Rules about responsible gambling


The Principles of Responsible Betting set out certain behaviours to follow for the practice of safe and responsible entertainment based gambling:

  • If you decide to gamble, do it only with the aim of entertainment and to enjoy some company.

  • Establish a time limit and stick to it.

  • Decide how much you want to spend, win or lose. Do not change your mind.

  • Accept the loss as part of the game.

  • Do not borrow money to bet.

  • Do not try to make up for losses by gambling.

  • Do not use gambling to get rich.

  • Do not gamble to avoid problems, worries or frustrations.

  • Do not gamble if you are recovering from another addiction.

  • Do not allow those younger than 18 to participate in games of chance.

Prevention


Gambling is a form of leisure and entertainment, exempt from any type of economic objective. Betting must always be under the threshold of responsible gambling, which requires that the user controls the time and money that they dedicate to this activity.

KIROLBET offers the user tools that facilitate the self-control to practice responsible gambling:

Deposits and bet limits: My Account > Limits

Through the LIMITS tool available on the users account, you can decide a daily, weekly and monthly maximum amount of deposits and bets. In the event that the user reaches their configured limit, they will not be able to process any bets until they the fixed period has passed.

Self-exclusion: My Account > Self-exclusion

Self-exclusion offers the user the option to block access to their account if they consider that they might find it difficult to control their bets, and constitutes an effective way of preventing gambling during a period that they have decided upon.

The user will be able to exclude themselves permanently from gambling by cancelling their account: My Account > Cancel Account

Time indicators

Given that the user has a better awareness and control over the time that they dedicate to gambling, time indicators exist:

  • Session timer: Every time the user begins a session, a timer is automatically started that is always visible, and that facilitates self-imposed limitation of gambling time.

  • Last connection: Indicates the moment in which the user last connected so that they are aware of their gambling frequency.

Test


If you feel that you might have a gambling problem, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you often find yourself remembering past gambling experiences, planning the next time you will gamble and/or contemplating ways to get money to gamble with?

  • Have you ever gambled more than you had planned?

  • Do you try to control, interrupt or stop gambling?

  • Did the attempt to interrupt or stop gambling make you anxious or irritable?

  • Do you gamble to avoid problems?

  • When you gamble money, do you gamble again to recover the money lost?

  • Do you think you have a gambling problem?

  • Do you finance your gambling activity with family money, loans,, fraud or robbery?

  • Have you ever missed work or classes due to gambling?

  • Have you turned to anyone to help you with your economic problems as a result of gambling?

The more affirmative responses, the larger the possibility that you have a serious problem with gambling and should consider seeking help..

Gambling is an individual activity of human beings, a form of leisure and entertainment. However, it is necessary to maintain control of the situation, respecting the rules of responsible gambling.

Responsible gambling is that in which the person makes decisions while conscious of the circumstances and in control of the time and the money they gamble. People that gamble responsibly predetermine how often they gamble, how much money and time they will spend and when they will stop. Sometimes, responsible gambling means making the decision not to gamble.

Someone who gambles responsibly plays for fun and not to earn money or avoid their problems.

If gambling is negatively impacting your life, that indicates a problem.

Make your decision, limit your gambling:

In the Basque Autonomous Community and at a State level there are Associations to help people addicted to gambling, which work to provide information, support and practical help surrounding the social impact of gambling. If gambling is negatively impacting your life, ask for help:
