At NewNZ.casino, we think that gambling ought to be entertaining and joyful. But we also recognise that certain people may experience problems and that it can be addictive. That’s why we are committed to promoting responsible gambling and providing resources to help players make informed decisions about their gaming habits.
What is Gambling Addiction?
Gambling addiction, also called compulsive gambling or pathological gambling, is a serious condition that can have severe consequences for both the addict and their loved ones. Hence, it is crucial to be aware of the early signs of gambling addiction and seek help if necessary. Some of the common signs of gambling addiction include:
- Gambling more frequently or for longer periods of time than intended
- Spending more money on gambling than one can afford
- Lying about gambling habits or hiding evidence of gambling
- Feeling anxious, guilty, or depressed as a result of gambling
- Gambling as a way to escape problems or cope with negative emotions
- Neglecting work, school, or personal relationships due to gambling
How to Overcome Gambling Addiction?
First of all, we encourage players to set limits for themselves before they start gambling. This can include setting deposit limits, loss limits, and time limits to help you stay in control of your gambling behaviour. You will find these limits in your account settings or by contacting the casino’s customer support team.
We also provide tools and resources to help you track your gambling activity. You can view your transaction history and set up notifications for when you reach certain thresholds. We encourage you to use these tools to monitor your behaviour and make sure that you are gambling within your means.
If you or someone you know may have a gambling problem, we encourage you to seek help. There are a number of organisations that offer support and assistance to individuals struggling with gambling addiction, such as the National Council on Problem Gambling in New Zealand. You can also reach out to our customer support team for information on where to find help.
Useful Measures for Recovering Addicts
In addition to these resources, we also have a number of measures in place to promote responsible gambling at NewNZ.casino. These include:
- Age Verification: We require all players to be at least 18 years old to gamble on our site.
- Self-Exclusion: If you feel that you need to take a break from gambling, you can request self-exclusion from our site. This will block you from accessing your account and prevent you from being able to place bets.
- Support for Third-Party Filters: We support the use of third-party filters such as GamBlock and Net Nanny, which can help you block access to gambling sites and protect minors from accessing them.
We hope that these resources and measures will help you enjoy a safe and responsible gambling experience at NewNZ.casino. If you have any questions or concerns about your gaming habits, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer support team for assistance.
