How do I gamble responsible?

  1. View gambling as a form of entertainment and not a source of income.
  2. Only gamble what you can afford to lose. You can use Deposit Limits and Spend Limits to help manage the amount of money you spend.
  3. Never chase your losses, as this can lead to problems.
  4. Monitor the amount of time you spend playing. You can use Session Limits to manage how long you can be logged into your account.

  8. Think about how much time and money you spend gambling. You can track your activity using your Online Account History.
  9. Understand your chance of winning and how the product works.
  10. Know that if you ever need to talk to someone about problem gambling you can contact a problem gambling support organization.

Practical tips and solution to prevent a problem happing. The following tools let you self-check, to see if you have a problem, and then take measures to stop you gambling if you need to.

Deposit Limits allow you to manage the amount of money you can deposit into your account during any one calendar day, week or month.

Once your limit is reached, you will be unable to deposit any funds until the applicable time period resets.

You will still be able to use all other ibet services, including placing bets or playing games with any available funds already in your account.

Take a break:

If you want to take a short break from wagering and gaming with us, you can do so by taking a Time-Out for a period of 72 hours, 7 days or 30 days.

Once you begin your Time-Out, you will not be able to use your account for wagering and gaming, although you will still be able to log in to withdraw any remaining balance. It will not be possible to reactivate your account until your chosen period has ended.

Where should you or someone you know go, if there’s a problem?

First of all, it might seem like a big deal to admit that there’s a problem – and it is. Problem gambling can destroy lives. But people admit they have a problem every day, and nobody thinks any less of them. In fact, it’s a sign of greater strength to admit there’s a problem, and even greater again to seek out help.

Below is a list of organisations who deal with people who have gambling problems every day. They’re the best people to contact first.

Spotting the signs:

Knowing what to look out for.

Here, we’ve got some tips on how you can spot the signs that one of your mates might be at risk of gambling to the point that they’re doing themselves harm. Have a look, and just keep them in mind when you’re next having a punt with pals.

  • Pre-occupation: We all like to relive our wins, but if it’s all the time, it’s not healthy.
  • Tolerance: Increasing the stake that’s bet, to get the same kick out of it.
  • Unable to stop: Have they tried gambling before and not been able to?
  • Irritability: Are they moody when they can’t get a bet on.
  • Escape from reality: Do they use betting to get away from it all, if they’re having trouble at home, or in work?
  • Chasing losses: Do they try to win back money if they’ve lost a bit.
  • Concealing: Do they have their phone under the table constantly putting bets on?
  • Borrowing money: Have they ever asked you or any of your other mates for money, so they could put a bet on?
  • Lying about gambling: Nobody likes to admit to losing a bet but hiding it can be a sign of a deeper problem.

Think you or someone else may have issue?

What to do?

If you notice a few of these signs in one of your mates, you might want to mention it to them. Having a quiet word will do. A simple “Sorry chief, I noticed you’re betting a lot lately. Just wanted to check if you’re doing all right?” is a good place to start.

Support is the key here. A problem shared is a problem halved. Visit “Who can help” to see where to point them.

Protecting Minors:

We don’t want your kids gambling either. Or any other kids, for that matter. We use age verification checks on every single account, to confirm that our customers are 18 or older, and legally old enough to gamble.

If we are unable to confirm a customer’s age through electronic checks, we suspend the account and request a proof of age documentation.

However, we know kids can often use their parents phones, tablets and laptops, and that you might still be logged in to a and as a result, gaming companies and parents must work together to protect children from underage gaming.

Tips for Protecting Minors:

  1. Keep your username, password and deposit details out of reach. Like, not written down on a post-it stuck to your laptop.
  2. Don’t save passwords or use auto-fill on your computer.
  3. If there are kids around, always log out of your Paddy Power account.
  4. Install website blocking software, such as NetNanny, which allows you to control and block access to gambling websites both on PC and mobile.
  5. Educate your kids about the legality and potential damage of underage gambling.
  6. Limit the amount of time your children spend online.
  7. Familiarize yourself with the build in parental tools on your Mobile/Tablet/PC/TV devices.
