Keep on reading to find out how you can learn to gamble more responsibly in 2022.
How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolution
1. Only play for Fun
Slot and Slingo games are meant to be played for fun and as a form of entertainment and not as a viable income source. When you’re playing online casino games, it’s essential you keep the emphasis on fun, and if at any time you find yourself becoming frustrated or angry with the game you’re playing then take a step back and call it a day.
2. Decide on Your Time Limit and Budget Before you Play
Before you start playing games at Slingo online set yourself a time limit and a budget for the session. If it helps you could write these numbers down on a post-it note and stick it on your monitor so it’s always in view. Be sure to be strict with yourself and keep to the limits you have set for yourself. This will stop you from overspending or playing until you end up losing any winnings you may have achieved.
3. Never Chase your Losses
When playing online slots remember the phrase ‘cut your losses’. This is a great responsible gaming adage, because a big online gaming no-no is to try to chase after losses. While slot games are exciting and many make it feel as though your next big win could be right around the corner, there’s actually no guarantee as slots are entirely dictated by chance. If you find yourself on a losing streak, stop playing, and take a break.
4. Make Sure You Only Play with a Clear Head
Never gamble online when under the influence or in a negative mood. These factors will alter your decision-making abilities and will prevent you from playing smart, leading to overspending and risky wagers.
5. Get Clued Up
Make sure you know how to game responsibly. At Slingo we always want our players to be safe when using our site and have a detailed Responsible Gaming page that can help you learn more about how to keep yourself safe when playing online.
6. Take a Break
Online gaming should be a fun hobby and shouldn’t be the be-all and end all of your free time. Take regular breaks and step away from the screen every once in a while. Not only will this help you keep a clear head and make sensible decisions, but will stop you from getting aches and pains and headaches too: it’s a win-win!
