Responsible Gambling at 1Win Uganda: The Basics Principles

The first and most important thing to consider about casinos and bookmakers is that they should be used as places to have fun. They are not designed as a source of a stable income you can get guaranteed. It is definitely one of the basic rules of Responsible Gambling. However, many gamblers do not take it seriously, which leads to negative consequences. That is why we at 1Win Uganda created a dedicated section with crucial information and rules to consider by every 1Win user.

1Win Responsible Gaming Policy

Sometimes, gambling and betting activity may cause serious problems. That is why it is extremely important to take control of your behavior and ask for professional help if necessary. At 1Win, you can find a list of the basic Responsible Gambling rules you should consider to minimize risks. 

  • Always take gambling and betting for relaxation. A significant cash prize is always a pleasant and long-awaited result for any 1Win user. However, it is only an addition that you must not consider as the main goal.
  • Consider the risk. You are not guaranteed a cash prize, even if you play skill-based games (for example, poker). The Random Number Generator controls most slot, table, instant, and other games, so you never know the outcome in advance. Of course, several strategies can slightly increase your chances for success, but they will not be useful if you, for example, face a losing streak.
  • Control of your emotions. Stay aware of your emotions, and do not make impulsive decisions.
  • Carefully manage your budget. Always keep the statistics on funds you won and spent. Always gamble or wager on sports using money that does not affect your financial situation.
  • Track the time you spend playing. This approach can help you allocate the time you may enjoy your hobby without affecting your job or communication with close ones. It is also a powerful tool against gambling addiction.

If you consider these rules while gambling or betting, you will only get pleasant emotions from using 1Win.

The Ways to Prevent Gambling Addiction

After registering at 1Win, you should head to the “Responsible Gambling” section and check the questionnaire we prepared for you.

  • Is gambling a source of income for you? 
  • Do you spend more than winning while gambling or betting? 
  • Have you already experienced budgetary problems because of playing or wagering in sports?
  • Did you borrow money to keep gambling or betting?
  • Do you feel nervous and irritated if you can not access your favorite game or if you lose?

If you have at least one “Yes,” then it makes sense to take a cool-off period or contact a specialist.
