Responsible gaming

Losing control might be fun on the dance floor, but not with gambling when there are risks and money involved. Playing at Betspin should be a fun experience, so we want you to enjoy the excitement of playing with moderation.

Sometimes you may feel that your lucky stars have abandoned you at the most critical moment. Most probably you’re not jinxed, because losing sometimes is a part of gambling. Thus, playing should be considered more as a form of entertainment and not as an investment or as a way of making money.

If you feel that sometimes you are losing control over playing, there are some options you might want to consider:

Set gaming limits

At Betspin you can set your own personal gaming limits for your account.

You can control your playing with these four different limits:

  1. Deposit limit: The amount of money you’ll be able to deposit on a daily, weekly or monthly basis
  2. Loss limit: The maximum amount of money you’ll be able to lose on a certain period of time
  3. Session time limit: The time of one session that after you’ll be logged out automatically

Take a break

If you wish to take a break from playing, you can freeze your player’s account for a specified period of time. Freezing options can be found and implemented in your Account options. The minimum period for a break is 24 hours. During this time you won’t receive email from us. If you would like to know more, please contact our Customer Care crew. We’ll do our best to help you!
