Poker is a wonderful game, full of subtleties and excitement. But if you do not watch out, it can get you into trouble. It is a very addictive game that may steal a lot of your time if you allow it to.
Anyone can lose in poker, even a world class professional. This is due to the luck factor. You can never be really sure of anything where luck is involved.
RedKings.co.uk believes in Responsible Gaming.
RedKings.co.uk understands that poker has a compelling nature, with the euphoria of winning or the need to turn around a losing streak sometimes taking over.
Most of our players know when to turn off the computer when they've had enough, but a small percentage of people find poker hard to resist and exceed sensible limits. This can cause problems such as overspending and lead to the serious problem of pathological gambling problems.
If you are one of those people or know someone who is, RedKings.co.uk.com is ready to help in many ways. We have also taken measures to ensure that only legally aged players who are responsible for their actions can access the site.
To fulfill our duty to prevent and minimize the problems associated with problem gambling, we encourage you to read and use the information below to identify and manage any compulsive gambling behaviour:
Controlling the Devil Inside
These are a few rules that good poker players follow to avoid the dark side of poker:
Never play with money you cannot afford to lose. Never take winning for granted. Even if you catch great cards, you may get unlucky. Time and time again. That's poker.
Play on a level that suits your finances. Playing too high will make you cautious and scared. You will play worse than you would on a lower level, and your opponents will be better.
Do not play when you are tired. Or drunk. Or angry. Or sad. You will make bad decisions. This is costly.
Set Your Own Limits
RedKings.co.uk can set deposit limits on a player's account, tailored to each player's needs. Please contact Support and ask for deposit limits to be set on your account.
Responsible gaming organizations also believe that sometimes the best thing for a player to do is to take a break from gaming. At RedKings.co.uk if a player needs a cooling off period we can block access to their account for either one week or 6 months.
