Responsible Gambling

We want you to enjoy playing with us and we will do this by looking after you. Gaming should always be fun, but unfortunately, you can’t always win. Losing is part of the game, too, and we want to make sure you are prepared for this. It’s important that you are aware of the social and financial difficulties that can occur if you cross your limits. Gaming can become addictive and it can make you lose perspective of time and money. However, we want to make your experience on HeyCasino! as positive as possible, even during those times when you lose.

  • Gambling should be entertaining and not seen as a way of making money;
  • Avoid chasing losses;
  • Only gamble what you can afford to lose;
  • Keep track of the time and amount you spend gambling;
