Everything You Need to Know About Our Responsible Gambling Tools

We know you come to Bally Casino for the excitement, and we don't like to disappoint! But we've been in the game long enough to know that fun should never come at the cost of safety.

Like all the good things in life, sometimes it takes a little good ol' fashioned teamwork. Keeping responsible gambling in the spotlight, we implement some smart tools, such as deposit limits, cool-off periods, and session reminders, to keep everyone on the same page.

Do I need the tools?

The casino floor is a place for thrilling entertainment with your buds. If you find yourself having anything less than a blast while playing, then we recommend hitting the 'pause' button to think about the following questions.

You don't need a 'yes' or 'no' answer for any of these questions – we prefer considering whether the answer is 'never', 'sometimes', 'most of the time' or 'almost always' to get a real sense of where we're sitting.

  • Have you bet more than you could afford to lose?

  • Have you found yourself needing to gamble with more money to get the same feeling of excitement?

  • If you lost money, did you log back in on another day to try to win back what you lost?

  • Have you ever borrowed money or sold anything to get money to gamble?

  • Do you feel like you might not be in control of your gambling?

  • Has gambling caused you any health problems, such as stress or anxiety?

  • Have people criticised your betting or told you that you had a gambling problem, regardless of whether you agreed?

  • Has your gambling caused any financial problems for you or your household?

  • Have you felt guilty about the way you gamble or what happens when you gamble?

If you answered 'never' or 'sometimes' to the majority of the questions, then it sounds like you're in full control of your gambling. You could have a problem, though, if the majority of your answers were 'almost always'.

You can chat about your experience with us more by getting in contact with our super friendly Customer Service team or heading over to GamCare for a more in-depth test.

Our Responsible Gambling Toolbox

We're big on service here at Bally Casino. You want to customise your gaming experience? You got it. We have plenty of smart tools designed to help you keep things fun while playing online. Take a look for yourself.

Deposit Limits

Want to cap your playing funds? No problem. Set your daily, weekly or monthly spending limit and we'll let you know once you've hit it. Just log in to let us know your limit. If you have more than one account with Bally Casino or across the other awesome casinos in our network, then you'll need to set a limit for each one.

Session Reminders

Need a friendly nudge to take a break before the hour mark? With our session reminders, you can set a reminder to stop playing after 30 minutes, freeing up time to get the laundry done!

Account Cool Off

Fancy a break from the casino floor? Say hello to the Account Cool Off tool. This tool lets you set a break of between 24 hours to six weeks. Just like the Deposit Limits tool, you'll need to activate the Account Cool Off tool across each of your accounts separately.

Account Self Exclusion

If you want to stop playing for longer than six weeks, then the Self Exclusion tool is for you. With the option to take a break for up to five years, this tool is great for helping players experience a reset. Once your break is over, our Customer Service team will give you a hand getting back into the action.

Not a fan of adverts?

Adverts. Whether you love 'em or hate 'em, you should have the power to opt out of seeing them at any time. If you want to opt out of our adverts, then head over to the My Account page and change your contact preferences. To find out how you can opt out of adverts on your social media feeds, then take a look at BeGambleAware’s advice.

No minors, please

Our online casino is a kid-free zone. That means no one is allowed to open a Bally Casino account until they are over 18 years old.

We validate the age and identity of all members looking to join by using a third party data reference company to perform an electronic verification. We reserve the right to ask for age verification information from you and hold your account until information proving you are an appropriate age is provided.

If we find anyone under 18 years old, then we will null and void any bets placed and the winnings will be forfeited. For parents and guardians looking to monitor and restrict the use of their computer's access to the internet from their minors, we recommend the following sites: FOSI and Net Nanny.
