Dotty Bingo can be great fun and entertainment, provided you stay in control. At Dotty Bingo we want to ensure that our players always enjoy their experience when they visit us and that they play in a safe and friendly environment. For that reason, we ask you to play responsibly. However Dotty Bingo acknowledges that gambling can possibly create problems. These problems can range from over-spending to a gambling addiction.
In order to prevent this, we advise that you please bear the following in mind:
Dotty Bingo is committed to creating a responsible gaming environment for the benefit of both players and staff alike.
|1. Do you find that you are becoming preoccupied with past gambling successes?|
|2. As time goes on do you find that you need to increase your bet sizes to achieve the same enjoyment and excitement? And if you win, do you feel the need to try and win more?|

Gambling is supposed to be fun and a form of entertainment. However if you have answered 'yes' to a substantial number of these questions, the likelihood is that you are having difficulties with your gambling. To speak with someone who can give you advice and support in relation to these potential difficulties, please contact one of the organisations listed below:
If you want to take the hassle out of monitoring your spending, you can always set a daily, weekly or monthly deposit limit. The system will then prevent you from depositing more than that amount within the given time frame.
You can set or change a deposit limit by logging in, navigating to My Account, and following the information from there; or by contacting customer support here.
Please note that when a limit has been set it will take place with immediate effect, similarly if you decrease this limit, it will also take place with immediate effect. However an increase in your deposit limit will only come in to effect after 24 hours have passed from the time you have increased your limit.
We understand that your personal circumstances may change and that you may want to take a break from gambling for a while, perhaps to save for a holiday, or maybe when you are travelling.
