What is responsible gambling?


The team behind Bucky Bingo want all players to enjoy the games, promotions and offers on our site. That is why we started Bucky Bingo- we want our players to have lots of fun.

When online bingo and slots stop being fun, we advise players to consider a few things.

Please read this list from www.gambleaware.co.uk to help identify if you are gambling online for the wrong reasons.  A person who gambles responsibly:

  • gambles for fun, not to make money or to escape problems
  • does not try to ‘chase’ or win back losses
  • gambles with money set aside for entertainment and never uses money intended for rent, bills and food
  • does not borrow money to gamble
  • does not let online gambling affect their relationships with family and friends

 

Therefore we encourage our players to think about moderation:

  • Gambling should not be considered a source of income or a way to make money
  • Only gamble with money you can afford to lose
  • Set a limit on money and time spent on gambling
  • Don’t chase your losses on online casino or slot sites
  • Avoid gambling when depressed, upset or while drinking alcohol
  • Take frequent breaks
  • Balance gambling with other activities you enjoy

 

There are ways players can stay in control of excessive gambling, like self-exclusion schemes. Players are also encouraged to contact the National Gambling Helpline or our customer support team for help.
