Responsible Gambling at Bingocams
Bingocams is committed to giving its players an enjoyable gaming experience, with access to the latest games in a safe and secure environment. We understand that for a minority, gambling can cross the line from being a fun pastime to becoming a compulsive and destructive behaviour.
We value the welfare of our customers and strive to ensure that all our players enjoy our games responsibly. We provide our players with the relevant information and self-protection options to assist them in making informed choices and playing within their limits. Please use our links for further details:
Identifying a Problem
Gambling should be treated as a pleasurable pastime and should NEVER be seen as a way to earn money.

- After losing, do you feel you must return as soon as possible and win back your losses?
- After a win do you have a strong urge to return and win more?
- Do you often gamble until your last euro is gone?
- Do you ever borrow to finance your gambling?
- Have you ever sold anything to finance gambling?
- Are you reluctant to use gambling money for normal expenditures?
- Does gambling make you careless of the welfare of your family?
- Do you gamble longer than you planned?
- Do you ever gamble to escape worry or trouble?
- Have you ever committed, or considered committing, an illegal act to finance gambling?
- Does gambling cause you to have difficulty in sleeping?
- Do arguments, disappointments, or frustrations create an urge within you to gamble?

Staying in Control
We offer the following self-protection options, designed to assist players in staying in control of their gambling.
We can display a periodic in-game notification informing you about your profit/loss over that time. This 'reality check' will suspend play and give you the option to continue playing or end your session.
To set a reality check on your account please log-in and select the ‘Responsible Gambling’ option from menu on the left hand side.
If you wish to take a break from our website, we offer a “Time Out” facility that can be applied by emailing email@example.com or via our Live Help service. Our Customer Service team will confirm when your “Time Out” period has begun.
We offer “Time Out” periods of 24 hours, 1 week and 1 month as standard, but you may also choose an “other” period, up to a maximum of 6 weeks. During a “Time Out” period, it will not be possible to access or reopen your account and any requests made during this period will be declined. We will also automatically remove you from any mailing lists that we have. Once the “Time Out” period has passed, your account may be reopened at your request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting our Live Help service.
