Most players understand that gambling is entertainment and are able to maintain control. However, some people may be susceptible to addiction problems with repercussions for themselves and their environment. Unlike alcohol and drugs, it can be difficult for the gambler to realise that they have a problem, due to the absence of physical symptoms of addiction.
Gambling is a form of entertainment and should never put anyone at risk, especially young people. To this end, 1win has established a comprehensive programme that respects and goes beyond the requirements of the law.
1win advises you to use “parental controls” through your internet service provider, or by downloading a free program that allows you to control the access of children and minors to online gaming rooms from your computer.
In order to avoid excessive or pathological gambling behaviour, we provide our players with these recommendations which can help them to better recognise the symptoms of risky behaviour:
Spending a lot of time playing
Spending more and more money on gambling
Seeing gambling as a good way to get rich
Borrowing money to play, despite having difficulty paying it back
Lack of interest in other leisure activities
Neglecting your family and friends in favour of the game
Avoid worrying about the future and stick to the recent results of the game
Play more and more to win back losses
Lying to your environment about your activities
Feeling unusually irritable, pessimistic, anxious
Feeling the desire to gamble to escape the stress, the boredom of everyday reality
Neglecting or abandoning studies or work due to lack of interest and energy.
Lying to yourself!
Be aware that gaming consumes a lot of energy, sometimes more than we imagine. Don’t play too much, or for too long
Tiredness and losses alter your attention. Keep an accurate count of your playing time, so that it doesn’t interfere with your other activities
Block access to online game rooms to protect children and minors in your environment. Disable the memorisation of your passwords
Setting reasonable financial limits
Be wary of playing online all the time
Despite the relative ease of using a credit card on the internet, always be aware of the amount of money you are risking
If you lose, don’t say: “I’ll make a last deposit to recover all my losses…”. Take your time and think with a cool head if you want to play again
Never put your family, your work or your studies at risk
Don’t see gambling as an escape from family or personal problems
If you feel you have a problem with the game, don’t hesitate to ADMIT. There is no need to be ashamed, focus on overcoming them. To get back to normal gambling behaviour, talk about it with a specialist or a person close to you
Don’t hesitate to take a break if you feel you are losing control.
If you have problems controlling yourself while gambling or think that gambling may have a negative impact on your personal balance, we invite you to take the following test:
Have you ever stopped working or studying because of gambling?
Has gambling caused you to neglect your own or your family’s well-being?
Have you ever sold anything or borrowed money to finance your gambling?
Have you ever gambled until you’ve lost your last euro?
Have you played more than you planned?
Have you ever considered self-destruction or suicide as a consequence of gambling?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we invite you to use our opt-out tool.
Once the self-exclusion is validated, you will be immediately disconnected and will not be able to play at 1win until the chosen date (maximum 3 months). The self-exclusion is irrevocable. You may not modify the duration of the fixed period at any time.
If you wish, you can register with the General Register of Gambling Prohibitions so that you are prohibited from accessing physical and online casinos and gambling halls.
