OUR COMMITMENT TO RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING
We want our players to have fun while gaming at SuperCasino, so we encourage you to gamble responsibly at all times. Gambling should be fun. Borrowing money to play, spending more than you can afford or using money set aside for other purposes is unwise and can lead to significant problems for yourself and others around you.
You can set daily, weekly or monthly limits on how much you can deposit to your account from your card either by visiting the “Responsible Gambling” area of “My Account”, by clicking here or by contacting Customer Care. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 0044 (0)203 727 3931. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Any reduction of your deposit limits will take effect immediately. However, any increase of your limits will take a minimum of 24 hours and you will be required to reconfirm your decision before it takes effect.
ARE YOU IN CONTROL?
The SuperCasino team wants players to be safe with their gaming and wise with the way they play. As such we have a list of questions, courtesy of GamCare, to help establish if gambling is becoming a problem for you: -
- Have others ever criticised your gambling?
- Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you have gambled?
- Do arguments, frustrations or disappointments make you want to gamble?
- Do you gamble alone for long periods?
- Do you stay away from work, college or school to gamble?
- Do you gamble to escape from a boring or unhappy life?
- Are you reluctant to spend 'gambling money' on anything else?
- Have you lost interest in your family, friends or pastimes due to gambling?
- After losing, do you feel you must try and win back your losses as soon as possible?
- If you run out of money when gambling, do you feel lost and in despair and need to gamble again as soon as possible?
- Do you gamble until your last penny is gone?
- Have you lied, stolen or borrowed just to get money to gamble or to pay gambling debts?
- Do you feel depressed or even suicidal because of your gambling?
If you answered yes to even one of the above questions, it might be time to seek advice to be sure you can control your gambling.

MANAGING YOUR PLAYING?
We advise that you draw up and stick to a budget plan for your gambling expenditure. Even frequent gamblers will benefit from knowing exactly how much they can afford to spend and how often. It is vital to stick to this budget, as even a small overspend could be the start of a slippery slope. You can even self-exclude yourself for a period to control your spending.
You can also view your bet and deposits history from the "My Account" section of our website. This can help you to keep an eye on your activity on the site and make sensible decisions about your gameplay.
We strongly recommend that you keep your username and password secure and private at all times to prevent any unauthorised access to your account. You can check what date and time you last logged in at by visiting the My Account summary area of the website, where you can see the last login time and IP address of your last login, so you can see if anyone else logged in without your permission.
We offer a time-out facility where you can temporarily block your access to our games and prevent yourself from depositing to your account. You will still be able to login to the service to access your bet, deposit, and withdrawal histories, along with being able to withdraw any of your funds. You can set the length of your time-out as you choose, from a minimum of 24 hours right through to a maximum of 6 weeks. You can do this by visiting the “Responsible Gambling” area of “My Account”, by clicking here or contacting our Customer Care department by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 0044 (0)203 727 3931. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We offer a self-exclusion facility where you can exclude yourself from our games for any period from 6 months, including 1 year, two years, 5 years, or as long as you want. You can do this by visiting the “Responsible Gambling” area of “My Account”, by clicking here or contacting our Customer Care department by emailing email@example.com, or by calling 0044 (0)203 727 3931. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When you self-exclude, we will take steps to make sure that you cannot access your account, make deposits, make bets, or access your account. We will also ensure that you cannot re-register with us whatsoever, and we will ensure that we will not send you any promotional material during your period of exclusion.
We also recommend that any player self-excluding should make use of available blocking software, such as Gamblock (www.gamblock.com) to prevent them from accessing other gambling websites.
We also would like to encourage you to extend your self-exclusion status to any other gambling organisations or websites that you may frequent.
18 AND OVER ONLY
It is illegal for anyone under 18 to open an account or to play on SuperCasino. We don't encourage anyone under 18 to visit our site - in fact; we even have software to stop under 18s from joining. Just so you know, we even use a third party to verify that you are over 18, strictly for the purposes of avoiding any unlawful betting.
If we are in any doubt as to the age of any customer, accounts may be suspended whilst any investigation is in progress. If you do have young people around you, please make sure that you keep your username and password confidential. We ask that all our customers be vigilant in preventing any misuse of their account by persons under the age of 18.
There are several computer applications that parents or guardians can use to monitor or restrict their computer’s access to the Internet. We recommend the following as a good starting point: -
Net Nanny web filtering software can help to protect children or minors against many forms of inappropriate Internet content. You can learn more by visiting www.netnanny.com.
Cybersitter is another web filtering program that allows you to add specific sites to block against underage access. You can learn more by visiting www.cybersitter.com.
We follow the code of practice that seeks to avoid targeting under age people with advertising material. This will include, for example, avoiding television advertisements in programmes that have more than a specified proportion of underage viewers and avoiding the sighting of posters near to school gates. No co-sponsorship will take place with companies that have particular appeal to minors.
If You have any complaints about the Service(s), please contact the Customer Services department in the first instance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If your complaint is not resolved by the support team you can escalate your complaint by emailing email@example.com within two weeks of any incident. We will endeavour to respond within 3 weeks of receipt of your communication.
We have appointed eCOGRA (www.eCOGRA.org) as our Alternative Dispute Resolution provider (“ADR”). You have free right of access to them as an ADR provider should you remain unsatisfied with the results of our complaints procedure above. You can refer your dispute to eCOGRA as soon as possible once you receive our final decision. More information regarding eCOGRA’S dispute resolution services can be found at http://www.ecogra.org/srs/policies_procedures.php. A dispute resolution form can be obtained at http://www.ecogra.org/srs/dispute.php. You can appeal any decision of eCogra to the courts of England.
Complaints can also be channelled to eCOGRA through the use of the European Online Dispute Resolution platform, which allows customers another way to file, respond to, and handle their dispute.
