CasinoRange is dedicated to providing its users with a responsible gambling environment. We aim to provide our users with the best gambling-related advice and online casino platforms where they can get the most entertaining online casino experience. However, it is also our duty to help prevent compulsive usage and underage access of our gaming products.
As a responsible online casino affiliate, we make sure to comply with guidelines from the UK Gambling Commission, eCOGRA, Begambleaware, Gamcare and all other organisations fighting for enhanced player protection and responsible gaming.
Protection of minors
In line with the UK Gambling Act 2005, The Company does not allow any online casino affiliated links (as defined in our Affiliate Links Disclaimer) or any other gaming-related platforms (such as software providers) displayed or mentioned on our website, that allows anyone under the age of 18 to play on their site.
We strictly stand against underage gambling. Our website is not designed to attract children or adolescents. We actively discourage persons under the age of 18 to visit our website.
Nevertheless, we recognise that the internet is readily accessible in many homes around the world. As a result, gaming companies and parents must work together to protect children from underage gaming. To ensure the safety of your children, we recommend installing filtering software to block minors from accessing certain websites and programs.
More tips for parents or guardians:
- Do not leave children unattended near your computer when this website or an online casino website is running. You must take special care to ensure that they do not access our or any gaming-related services via your devices.
- Protect your gaming programs with password access.
- Do not allow persons under 18 to participate in any gaming activity.
- Keep your username, password and deposit method details out of the reach of children.
- Educate your children about the legality and the potential damage of underage gaming.
- Limit the length of time your children spend online.
Preventing Compulsive Gaming
CasinoRange recognises that while most people play for entertainment, a small number of people can become obsessed with the potential monetary gains that can be made from games offered by remote gambling platforms that we advertise on our website. Even though studies suggest that only a very small percentage of the adult population encounters compulsive gaming problems we take this matter exceedingly seriously.
Remember that gaming is a form of entertainment. It is not a way to get rich quickly and pay off your debts.
Gambling is a game of chance. There are no formulas that guarantee winnings.
Make sure that the decision to play is your choice.
Never try to chase your losses.
Check the amounts you spend on a regular basis.
Make sure you know the rules of the games you play.
Like many things, what is enjoyable in moderation can be disastrous in excess.

Responsible Gaming Tools provided by Online Casinos
As part of most their policies, online casinos usually give you the tools to control the amount of money you use to play on their website.
You can set your own daily, weekly and monthly deposit limits in your account on their website and request to adjust them at any time. Depending on each casino’s policy, you can usually simply call their Member Support Team and a representative will help you set your limits.
To help you set limits that are right for you, try answering this short questionnaire:
- Establish what constitutes an acceptable loss before starting to play.
- Note how often you play.
- Note how long you play during each gaming session.
Use your answers to determine how much you would like to allow yourself to spend per day, per week or per month.
Game Time Reminder and AUTOPLAY Limits
Online casino platforms may also provide you the tools to set a “game time” reminder as to the length of time you have spent on any instant game and to manage the AUTOPLAY function.
Game Time Reminder
In order to keep track of the time spent actively playing an instant game, you are provided with the opportunity to activate a game time reminder through the Settings tab. Instant game timing is activated per game. A new game time interval will begin for each instant game that you open, and will operate independently of any other instant game that may be open at the same time. If you change the game timing when you are playing in an instant game, the new timing will only be effective on the following instant game opened.
Depending on their policies, the game time reminder must usually be set per account with the online casino website, it will not be automatically applied to any other account which you may have with other casinos.
AUTOPLAY automatically plays the game for you, for the number of rounds you select. You can select the number of rounds you can play in one batch. The maximum number of rounds which you may select will not be more than 100 on the games where AUTOPLAY is offered. Once you have selected the number of rounds and hit the SPIN button you will be prompted to select your Loss Limit. During AUTOPLAY if you reach your Loss Limit, the AUTOPLAY will automatically stop. You may also set a single Win Limit and if you hit the Win Limit the AUTOPLAY will automatically stop. Regardless of the Loss Limit or Win Limit that you set, AUTOPLAY will automatically stop when you hit the jackpot or the limit on the number of AUTOPLAY rounds you have set is reached.
Account Restrictions, Self-Exclusion & “Take a Break”
- If you feel that our promotional materials are encouraging you to play more than you want, you can always unsubscribe yourself from the online casino promotional content by visiting their website.
- If you are not concerned about your gambling behavior, but wish to close your account with the online casino, you have a right to request an account closure under the terms of their User Agreement. Any available balance may be withdrawn subject to their User Agreement. Should you wish to reopen the closed account, their assistance team should be able to assist you.
- If, you wish to take a break and suspend the use of your account, you can request on some online casino platforms one of the following options:
- A one day “Take a Break” period
- A two day “Take a Break” period
- A seven day “Take a Break” period
- A one month “Take a Break” period
- A six week “Take a Break” period.
In addition, the online casino should take all reasonable measures to make sure you do not receive any promotional material from this brand during this time. Depending on their terms and conditions, you can request a “Take a Break” period by contacting their Member Support Team.
If, at any stage, you become concerned about your gambling behavior, you can request a six month or above self-exclusion period, leading to a termination of your account.
