How can we help you?

Setting loss and deposit limits

You can set both deposit and loss limits.

Deposit Limits

Deposit limits allow you to control the amount of money you can deposit into your account. The amount can be set over a period of one day, one week or one month.

This restricts the amount of money entering your account, before you gamble.

Loss limits

Loss limits allow you to limit the amount of money you can lose over a given period. The limit can be set over a period of one day, one week, one month or one year. 

This restricts the amount of money you can lose to control your gambling.
