SPD77 hopes that all players will be able to derive maximum enjoyment from the games we offer through reasonable and responsible gaming. SPD77 believes that online gambling is a personal lifestyle choice. Therefore, before you participate in any online gambling activities, please ensure that the decision to gamble is purely of your own free will and choice. A common and recurrent problem among betting enthusiasts is exceeding their gambling budget. As such, we recommend that you plan your expenditures and gambling budget ahead of time to prevent an overrun of your budget. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, it is advisable that you refrain from gambling for a short period of time to recover financially as well as to moderate your gambling behaviour. If you find yourself unable to exert any control over your gambling activities, you may require professional help. Do not gamble if:
- ♠You are not of the legal gambling age in your jurisdiction.
- ♠It prevents you from living a quality life and/or distracts you from your work and responsibilities.
- ♠You are recovering from any addictive disorders or dependencies.
- ♠You are under the influence of alcohol or other substances.
- ♠You are attempting to cover prior gambling losses.
If gambling is not something you want to do but rather something you need to do, we advise you to seek professional help. Many people view gambling as recreation – a fun and harmless form of entertainment to escape the monotony of everyday life. However, gambling has become troublesome for a minority of whom gambling has become harmful. We hope that all activities on SPD77 are carried out responsibly so you can fully enjoy yourself without any negative repercussions. Through extensive training and years of experience in the casino industry, the staff of SPD77 are equipped to spot and identify the signs of problem gambling in players.
