Safer Gambling

At Casino.com Ontario we believe that online gambling should be a fun form of entertainment.

As a safer gambling provider, we are committed to creating a safe and enjoyable online casino environment for our valued players.

Most online casino players gamble within their means and enjoy their time spent in the casino, however for some it can spiral out of control.

This page covers the various measures that we have in place to ensure that we are doing our best by you. If you have any concerns or questions that are not covered here, please contact our Customer Support team who will be happy to help.

The 10 Rules of Safer Gambling

Keep the following in mind to ensure your gambling is kept fun:

  • If you choose to gamble – do it for entertainment purposes only
  • Treat the money you lose as the cost of your entertainment – and any winnings as a bonus
  • Set a time limit and stick to it – stop playing at that time, whether or not you are winning
  • Set a budget and stick to it – decide what you can afford to lose and how much you want to spend
  • Expect to lose – the odds are against you and loss is part of the game
  • Be aware of the signs of problem gambling – education is the best prevention
  • Make it a rule not to gamble on credit – never borrow money to play
  • Create balance in your life – gambling should never interfere with or substitute for friends, family, work or other activities
  • Never chase lost money – the chances are that the more you try to recoup your losses, the larger your losses will be
  • Make sure you are playing for fun – not out of necessity, habit, or to cope with emotional or physical issues

Help and Support

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is gambling interfering with your work or other responsibilities?
  • Are you gambling more than you can afford to lose?
  • Have you borrowed money or sold anything to gamble?
  • Are you trying to make up for previous gambling losses?
  • Have you needed to gamble with larger amounts of money to get the same level of excitement?
  • Are you recovering from an addictive disorder?
  • Do you gamble under the influence of alcohol or other substances?
  • Have you ever gambled to escape worry, trouble or boredom?
  • Has gambling caused you any health problems, including stress or anxiety?
  • Has your gambling caused any financial problems for you or your family?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, it may indicate that you may have an issue with compulsive gambling.

Should this be the case, we recommend that you are honest with yourself and seek the relevant support to address any issues.

If you wish to restrict the amount of money you are able to deposit to the site over a period of 1 day, 1 week or 1 month, you are able to set deposit limits to prevent any further transactions to the site. This functionality is available within the cashier when signed into your account, or via the link below.

Any reduction in your limits will be applied immediately, with any increase being subject to a 24-hour cooling off period, at which point you will have to confirm the change. Deposit limits will only apply to the account on which you set them. If you hold other accounts on the Mansion Ontario network, we strongly recommend you consider adding limits to these also. Any spend will not count towards limits on other accounts, each operate independently.

Please note:

1) Limits set by you and implemented by Casino.com are for your protection. If you would like to decrease a limit (e.g. reduce your monthly deposit or loss limit amount for reduced gambling), this will be done as soon as possible by our Customer Support team. If you would like to increase a limit (e.g. increase your monthly deposit limit amount), there will be a 24 hour cooling off period before your request is put in place by our Customer Support team.

2) It is your responsibility as well as ours to ensure that any limits you set are followed. Please do not try to play outside of your set limits by creating a new account with one of our other online casinos, as we will not be responsible for any losses incurred under such circumstances.

3) Any limits requested by email are only considered to be effective once you have received a confirmation email from us, which will contain an incident number for your reference. If you have requested a limit but have not received a confirmation email, please contact our Customer Support team immediately.

4) If you request a limit by telephone, you will also receive a confirmation email. Again, please inform our Customer Support team immediately if you have not received confirmation, as this may mean that the limit has not been set.

Should you wish to close your account for problem gambling reasons, there are a number of tools available to restrict your access, listed below.

Time Out

If you would like to take a short-term break from your play you can opt to request a “Time Out” for between 24 hours and 12 weeks. During this time, you will not be able to deposit in your account and all gaming activity will be prevented, nor will you receive any marketing materials. These restrictions will apply across all of your accounts on the Mansion Ontario network, and will be automatically removed following the completion of the requested period. During a Time Out, you will be unable to re-open your account early and must wait for the entire time to pass.

In order to place a Time Out on your account, please follow the link below, or request this directly from our Customer Support Please note, until the process has been completed and your Time Out confirmed, your account will not be fully restricted.

Self-Exclusion

If the situation is more serious, you may want to exclude yourself from gambling for an extended period of time. You can request to Self-Exclude for a period between 6 months and 5 years. During this time, you won’t be able to log into your account.

Any balance you have at the time of self-exclusion will be processed back as soon as you request it to the most recently used payment method, and you will be removed from all marketing communications.

Upon completion of the Self Exclusion period, you must contact us directly should you wish to reactivate your account and resume playing. Your account will then be reviewed and will be considered for reopening subject to a 24-hour cooling off period.

In order to place a self-exclusion on your account, please click below or request this directly from our Customer Support team. Please note, until the process has been completed and your self-exclusion confirmed, your account will not be fully restricted.

We strongly recommend, should you be considering a self-exclusion on your Mansion Ontario accounts, to extend this to accounts you hold with other gambling operators. Please also see the support agencies listed in the section below who will be able to offer further assistance.
