Responsible Gaming & Problem Gambling

BetFootball Commitment to Responsible Gambling

In our role as a online football betting website, we are committed to making sure players who sign up with online sportsbooks through www.betfootball.com links play in a responsible fashion:

  • We are seriously committed to ensuring players play responsibly.
  • We are seriously committed to ensuring players are of legal age to gamble.

How to Gamble Responsibly

  • Make your mind up to gamble only what you can afford to lose, not money for everyday expenses
  • Decide how on a bankroll limit
  • Set a time limit
  • Take breaks regularly.
  • Never play when depressed or in an intoxicated state.
  • Decide on a maximum loss amount.
  • Set a time limit
  • Take breaks regularly.
  • Don't chase losses.
  • Make use of the tools provided by many sportsbooks to help you keep your gaming in check. You can use
    • Customer-Led Deposit Limits - These will let you control the amount you deposit into your account.
    • Self-Exclusion Tools - These will set a time limit during which you are unable to use your account.

Protect Minors from Problem Gambling

  • You must be at least 18 years old to gamble, or the legal gambling age where you live. This age varies from country to country and state to state in the US, but it is defined as the age at which a person enters into full adult legal rights and responsibilities. This age is not necessarily the age of majority or voting age, so please do your research to see if you are of the right age before betting on football.
  • Protect minors by keeping your login and password information safe. Use child protection software that enables you to restrict gaming Web sites. Do not use the "save password" option on login screens.

How Can I Start Fixing a Gambling Problem?

A "gambling problem" is not always obvious to either gambler or those close them. You don't have to gamble every day or go into debt or even have trouble controlling your gambling. It simply needs to be causing an issue or disrupt the functioning of your life and those around you.

A few things you can keep in mind about the conditions needed for gambling:

  • Gambling requires making a decision to gamble
  • Gambling requires money
  • Gambling requires time
  • Gambling requires a game to gamble on

Gambling problems are also commonly a by-product of a behavior or mood disorder which you’ll need to address before you even tackle your gambling problem. We highly recommend seeking professional help for any signs of problem gambling and we've listed a couple of helpful resources below.
