Responsible Gaming

Some individuals may be unable to control their compulsion to gamble. Being a problem gambler can affect the life not only of the gambler themselves but also their family, friends and colleagues.

Here at PokerHost.com we promote responsible gaming. If you believe you may have a gambling problem we urge you to seek assistance from one of the many organizations that provide the support that you need to regain control of your problem. One such organization is www.gamblersanonymous.org.

The following are indicators of compulsive and uncontrolled gambling symptoms:

  • Spend more time gambling than with work, friends or family.
  • Neglect responsibilities from work and family.
  • Tried to stop or control gambling habits with no success.
  • Need to lie when asked about the amount of time spent gambling.
  • Borrow money from others to pay for gambling debts or future bets.
  • Bet more money or more bets attempting to recoup losses.
  • Sell personal possessions for gambling money.

In addition, if you feel that you cannot control your gambling, you can contact our customer support representatives and request that they restrict access to your account. You will be able to restrict access to the account for a minimum of 6 months and after this time has passed, you are free to contact support to have your account reactivated.

If you still wish to play on the site but wish to be blocked from accessing a particular game type with which you have a compulsion, support can accommodate that request for you also.

Age and Legality of Participation

We do not allow access to the games if you are less than 18 years of age. You should always check the laws in your country to make sure that it is legal for you to participate in our games in your local area prior to joining the site.

Parental Control

There are a large number of filtering programs on the market for parents who wish to keep their children from accessing internet gaming sites that you may wish to use. An example of such a program is http://www.cybersitter.com.

Poker Host reserves the right to close or suspend your account and send back your funds if we feel that you have a gambling problem.
