We are committed to Responsible Gaming.

 

Within the "My Account" section of each player's account, we offer full control to set limits on:

 

      • Time per Session
      • Deposit Amounts
      • Loss Amounts
      • Custom Cool-Off periods
      • Self-Exclusion from Gambling in New Jersey

 

 

We encourage use of these services if, at any time, you feel you are showing any tendencies towards compulsive gambling. Any decrease to limits set on your account will become effective immediately. Any increases to the limits will become effective after the set period of the previous limit has expired.

Common Misconceptions

 

If I keep gambling, my luck will change and I'll win back the money I've lost.
Each time you place a bet, the outcome is completely independent of the previous one. This means that the odds are no more in your favor on the tenth bet than they were on the first bet. Over time, the more you risk, the more you'll lose.

 

I have a feeling that today is my lucky day. I just know I'm going to win.
Hoping, wishing or even needing to win money has absolutely no influence on the outcome of a game of chance.

Tips for Safer Play

 

  • Always gamble with money that you can afford to lose, such as money that you set aside for fun, like going to the movies or going out for drinks.
  • Never use money that you need for important things like rent, bills, tuition, etc.
  • Never chase losses.
    • If you lose money, never try to get it back by going over your limit. This usually leads to even bigger losses.
  • Set a money limit
    • Decide how much money you can afford to lose before you play. When you have lost that amount of money, quit. If you win – enjoy, but remember it won't happen most of the time.
