NetBet’s Philosophy

As part of our dedication to being a fair and open operator, safer gambling is paramount in all that we do. Gambling is a leisure activity and should never be a priority over day-to-day social, family or work commitments, and should never interfere with your financial security. We strive to ensure that all of our customers are playing in a safe, sustainable and entertaining environment and only ever with money and time that should not have been used elsewhere.

You were given financial limits that are bespoke to the information you provided us relating to your income and situation. That said, we encourage the use of our Safer Gambling Tools to help you to manage your activity however is most appropriate for you. You can make your financial limits more restrictive, take breaks or set time reminders or limits in line with your preferences.

From time-to-time, we may also reach out to you to better understand how you feel about your gambling and to see if you may require any additional support. In some cases, we may also ask you to provide evidence of how you have been funding your gambling. Don’t worry – this is very much an industry standard, and the only reason we’d ever ask for this information is to make sure all is well and to allow us to give you the best experience possible. Any information you provide us is also entirely protected by relevant data protection laws and will not be shared outside of our company.

Awareness and Limits

At NetBet, we encourage you to work with us to help you to manage your time and spend in a way that is responsible and appropriate for you. We have a range of safer gambling tools, assessments and regulating features for you to use, and we encourage you to find which ones help you maintain a healthy relationship with your gambling.

Frame of Mind

Gambling is a form of entertainment and should always be something that you choose to do. As such, we encourage you to gamble in a mindset that allows you to fully enjoy your time. We would recommend not gambling while:

  • Excessively drinking
  • Under the influence of recreational drugs
  • Taking medication that can:
    • Make you forgetful
    • Make you drowsy
    • Make you prone to mood swings
    • Alter your thought process or decision making.
  • Experiencing high levels of stress in your day to day life:
    • Relationship breakups
    • Loss of a close relative/friend
    • Loss of a job/education/career
    • Life-altering events.

Gambling while in an altered mindset can impair your judgement and decision-making abilities, giving you less self-control and increasing the risk of you experiencing gambling-related harm.

If you feel you might be vulnerable to the risks of gambling-related harm, we recommend you speak with a professional such as your GP, for instance.
