We want our players to have fun while playing at MIRAGE66, so we encourage responsible gaming. We allow our players to define their own limits of responsible gaming, and then we help with management tools that allow you to set and control your own limits. Gambling is a form of entertainment, and should never place a burden on your life either financially or emotionally. Borrowing money to play, spending above your budget or using money allocated for other purposes is not only unwise but can lead to significant problems for you and others around you. We want you to enjoy playing on MIRAGE66, so bet responsibly and have fun!
MANAGING YOUR PLAYING
For players who enjoy gambling frequently, it is not uncommon to spend over their budget some of the time. We advise that specific budget plans be made to ensure your gambling expenditure is affordable.
Sometimes people deny the extent of their own problems and seek help only in crisis. Ask yourself honestly, and if you think you might have a problem set yourself the goal of stopping gambling for two weeks or a month as a test. If you are unable to achieve this, you could have a problem and might benefit from discussing your situation with a counsellor.
PROBLEM GAMBLING CHECKLIST
If you feel you may have a problem with your gambling, ask yourself the following questions:
-Do you stay away from work or studying in order to gamble?
-Do you gamble to escape from boredom or unhappiness?
-When gambling and you run out of money, do you feel lost and in despair and feel the need to gamble again as soon as possible?
-Do you gamble until all your money is lost?
-Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you have spent gambling?
-Have you ever lied, borrowed or stolen to maintain betting habits?
-Are you reluctant to spend gambling money on anything else?
-Have you lost interest in your family, friends or hobbies?
-After losing, do you feel you must try and win back your losses as soon as possible?
If the majority of the answers are 'yes', it may be a sign of gambling problem. We recommend that you:
-Gamble as a form of leisure.
-Avoid chasing losses.
-Gamble only within your means.
-Keep track of the time and amount of money spent.
