Gameseek.co.uk takes responsible gaming very seriously. We wish all of our users to practice safe and responsible gaming. Gambling is an entertainment activity and, above all, it should be fun. If you gamble irresponsibly, this will have a huge impact on you and your family.
How to know if you have a problem?
The following questions can help you determine if gambling is having a negative impact on your life:
- Have you ever been criticized for gambling?
- Do you gamble in order to escape from a boring and unhappy life?
- Can disputes, confusions or frustrations push you to gamble?
- Do you gamble alone and for long periods of time?
- Do you distance yourself from work, college or school to gamble?
- Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money you lost and amount of time you spent gambling?
- Have you ever lied, stolen or borrowed money to maintain your gambling habits?
- Do you feel reluctant to spend “gambling money” on something else?
- Have you lost interest in your family, friends or hobbies because of gambling?
- After losing, do you feel compelled to play until you regain the lost amount as soon as possible?
- If you run out of money while gambling, do you feel despair and helplessness, and need to play again as soon as possible?
- Do you gamble until you lose everything, even the money for a bus ticket or a cup of tea? 13. Do you feel depressed or even suicidal about gambling?
The more questions you answer “yes” to, the more likely you are to have gambling problems.

What you can do to help yourself?
Identify and reduce risks
If you choose to play online, there are a few basic principles you need to follow to make the gaming experience safer and reduce the risk of problems:
- Play for fun, not to make money.
- Play with amounts you can afford to lose. Never use money intended for important things, such as food, rent, bills and training.
- Set a deposit limit and never deposit more than you can afford to lose.
- Never play to recover what you lost. If you lose, do not go to higher stakes in an attempt to recoup your losses.
- Do not play when you are upset, tired or depressed. It is difficult to make good decisions when one feels bad.
- Balance games with other activities. Find other forms of entertainment so that the game does not become too important a part of your life.
Set different limits for responsible gambling to help you play more responsibly. You can set limits by following the instructions below depending on the platform you use to access our services:
In the computer software Log in to your account and choose Tools> Responsible Gambling.
In the mobile application After logging in, open “Menu” (on Android) or “More” (on iOS) and select “Settings and tools”> “Responsible Gambling”.
Set limits on deposits and purchases
Mycasinogames.com believes that players should be able to manage their online gaming budget on their own. Try to set your own weekly limits for real money deposits.
Set limits with cash games, tournament and casino game limits
You can set table limits and tournament limits – this will give you the opportunity to control your costs by limiting yourself to playing at certain table betting levels, as well as to certain tournament entry limits. You can also block your participation in certain casino games. Alternatively, If you want to set a specific limit permanently or for a specific period of time, please email the support department of the website you are using for gambling.
Although many players follow the framework of a responsible gaming policy, for some of them this can be a challenge. To exercise complete control over your gaming habits, we recommend that you pay attention to the following points:
Betting should be in moderation and perceived as a form of entertainment, not as a way to make money
- Avoid “chasing” losses
- Bet only when you can cover your losses
- Keep track of time and keep track of the amounts you spend.
- If you need help, use the deposit and loss limit tools of the website you are using to gamble
- If you need to take a break from betting, you can use the self-exclusion and interruption settings each gambling/ gaming website provides.
