Responsible Gambling Advice
- Set your limits! It’s really important to establish limits for purchasing, wagering and even losses before you start gambling
- Don’t let it take over! We never advise gambling if you find that it’s interfering with your daily commitments
- Stay safe! We never advise gambling if you are in recovery for any dependency. You should also never gamble under the influence of alcohol or any other substance
- Don’t try to recoup debts! Gambling is never advised if your primary aim is to win money to repay debts

Other Responsible Gambling Resources
If you’re looking for more information on responsible gambling, GambleAware.org can help. Just visit www.gambleaware.co.uk to learn more. Various companies also offer software that you can install to completely block gambling sites on your computer, including Gamblock (https://www.gamblock.com) and Betfilter (http://www.betfilter.com/).
At Cashmo, we use sophisticated age verification systems and procedures to check players’ ages. This minimises the risk of underage players from accessing our casino service. Still, we’d always advise parents and guardians who play on a family-shared computer to use parental controls. You can install filtering software to prevent children and young people from accessing gambling-related content. We’d recommend something like Net Nanny, which protects children from inappropriate web content, or Cybersitter, which allows parents to add their own sites to block.
Responsible Gambling Questions
If you are concerned that you may have a gambling problem, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you stay away from work or college to gamble?
- Do you gamble to escape from a boring or unhappy life?
- When gambling and you run out of money, do you feel lost and in despair, and need to gamble again as soon as possible?
- Do you gamble until your last penny is gone, even the bus fare home or the cost of a cup of tea?
- Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you have gambled?
- Have others ever criticised your gambling?
- Have you lied, stolen or borrowed just to get money to gamble or pay gambling debts?
- Are you reluctant to spend “gambling money” on anything else?
- Have you lost interest in your family, friends or interests?
- After losing, do you feel you must try and win back your losses as soon as possible?
- Do arguments, frustrations or disappointments make you want to gamble?
- Do you feel depressed or even suicidal because of your gambling?
The more you answer “yes” to these questions, the more likely you are to have a serious gambling problem. We’d advise you to contact a responsible gambling organisation such as GamCare as soon as possible for free advice and support. We’d also advise that you review the responsible tools available below and see if any of them can help you get your gambling under control. .
Session limits are designed to remind you when you’ve been playing continuously for a set amount of time. It’s a great reality check to make you aware of how much time you’re spending playing. It’s also a helpful heads-up that it might be a good time to have a break. If you decide you want to keep playing, you’ll have to start a new session. You can do this by quitting the game and reloading it. A ‘session’ is based on how long you’ve been playing an individual game continuously. If you switch games or log out and back in again, a new session will start. If you begin a new session, a new session limit will need to be set. If you’re playing on the website and you set your session limit in another tab, you’ll need to refresh the game before it will take effect. If you’re currently logged into your account, you can set a session limit using the ‘Set Session Limit’ button below.
Deposit limits can help you limit the amount of money that you can deposit into your Cashmo account. This limit will be over a period of 1 day, 7 days or 4 weeks. You can lower your deposit limit at any time with immediate effect. However if you want to be able to deposit more, and increase your deposit limit, it will take 24 hours to take effect. This is to give you time to think it over and make sure you’re happy to spend more. Please be aware that the customer support team can’t override any deposit limits you’ve set. To set a deposit limit, simply make sure you’re logged in and then use the ‘Set Deposit Limit’ button below.
Cashmo offers cool-down periods too. These can be really useful as a first step if you’re starting to feel like you need a break from playing. Please note that any pending bonuses due to go onto to your account will be cancelled. You won’t be able to access your Cashmo account, or play on any of our sister brands while your cool-down period is active. You can set a cool-down period with the ‘Set Cool Down Period’ button below. Just choose a period of 1 day, 7 days or 4 weeks. When your cool-down period finishes, you will be able to access your account again and continue playing.
It’s really import to take action if you no longer feel able to gamble safely. If you decide you need to stop playing, you can self-exclude from Cashmo and all of our sister casino brands. If you request this, you will not be able to access your account or play with any of our casino brands during your chosen self-exclusion period, which can be anything from 6 months up to 5 years. For your own protection, this cannot be reversed under any circumstances. If you would like to self-exclude, please contact our customer support team on 01384 885040 for assistance. Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your account details and how long you’d like to self-exclude for. If no period is stated, we will exclude you for the minimum period of 6 months. You can also request self-exclusion without contacting our customer support team by using our automated service. To self-exclude, text the word EXCLUDE to 84988. The self-exclusion will be in place for the minimum period of 6 months.
If you are considering self-exclusion, you may wish to register with GAMSTOP. GAMSTOP is a free service that enables you to self-exclude from all online gambling companies licensed in Great Britain. To find out more and to sign up with GAMSTOP please visit www.gamstop.co.uk

Over 18 Only
In the United Kingdom, the minimum legal age to gamble is generally 18 years old. This applies to all online gambling.
We perform age verification checks on all of our customers to make sure that they are 18 or over. If these checks do not give us the information we need, documentary proof of age will be required.
Account holders can help us to prevent children and young people from accessing our services by keeping usernames and passwords confidential at all times. Also, we strongly advise against saving login details to your device.
If we become aware that anyone under the age of 18 has an account and has gambled/ is gambling with us, their winnings will be forfeited and their account will be closed with immediate effect.
