Control the time and money you spend on gambling

Having control over the time and money you are spending on gambling is an important way of ensuring that you’re staying safe.

We’ve put together some tips that you can use to make sure you are in control of your gambling.

Reality check

Keep track of how much time you are spending on gambling. By using a reality check, you can set alerts that will pop up on screen. This will help you to monitor the time spent on gambling. You can do this either online or in betting shops.

Time trackers

Some sites keep a constant clock to time how long the user is signed in. There are also a number of time tracker apps that you can download. Time tracking works well when you are trying to monitor how much time you are spending on gambling.

Machine limits

Similarly to being able to set limits on your bank account, some B2 machines such as casino and BetFred give you the option to set a limit. This means you won’t be able to spend over a certain amount on the machine.

Membership cards

If you play a card-based machine or table play, some operators offer limit setting if you have a membership card. You will be able to find information about each operator’s membership policy on their websites.

Block gambling payments with your bank

Many banks now offer the ability to limit spending on gambling. If you feel that you are spending too much money on gambling, you may want to consider blocking gambling payments with your bank.

They do this by blocking your bank account or debit card which stops the account from being used for gambling transactions.
