Responsible Gambling

Responsible Gambling

Most people gamble for fun and enjoyment. However, some people think of gambling as a way to make money, spend more than they can afford, or use gambling to distract themselves from everyday problems. Following these tips can help you to gamble more safely.

Tips for Safer Gambling.

1. Don’t think of gambling as a way to make money: Think of gambling as an entertainment expense – just like buying a movie ticket.

2. Only gamble with money you can afford to lose: Gamble within your weekly entertainment budget, not with your phone bill or rent budget.

3. Set a money limit in advance: Decide how much you can afford to lose before you go to play. When it’s gone – it’s over! If you win, you’ve been lucky, but don’t be disappointed if your luck doesn’t continue.

4. Set a time limit in advance: It’s easy to lose track of time when you’re gambling. Set a time limit or alarm, and when time’s up – quit! Odds are that the more time you spend gambling, the more money you will lose.

5. Never chase your losses: If you lose your set money limit and then try to win some of it back before you leave, then you haven’t really set a money limit. Chasing your losses will usually just lead to bigger and bigger losses.

6. Don’t gamble when you’re depressed or upset: Decision-making can be more difficult when you’re stressed or emotionally upset. Make sure you only gamble when you’re feeling happy and clear headed.

7. Balance gambling with other activities: When gambling becomes your only form of entertainment, it’s unlikely that you’re still just gambling for the fun of it, and your gambling may even be a problem. Make sure gambling isn’t your only pastime.

8. If you use the Casino Cash Desk: Consider setting daily financial limits that are within your means by limiting the amount of money that can be withdrawn at the cash desk.

9. Take frequent breaks: Gambling continuously can cause you to lose track of time and perspective. Step out for some air or a bite to eat at regular intervals.

10. Responsible alcohol consumption: Alcohol can cloud judgment, and good judgment stands as your main line of defence against letting gambling get out of control.

How much do you spend on gambling?

Remember, everyone has different income and expenditure levels, and different financial limits. It is up to you to decide how much is ‘too much’.


If you think you are spending too much time or money gambling, then ask staff for more information about self-exclusion schemes. Self-exclusion means asking a gambling provider to exclude you from gambling with them for a length of time, with a minimum period of 6 months. All gambling providers in Seychelles can provide this option, allowing any customer who has followed the procedure to request self-exclusion.

How the self-exclusion schemes work:

Self Exclusion allows people to voluntarily enrol in a scheme to exclude themselves nationally from Club Liberte and other land-based casinos in the Seychelles.

a. You will be excluded for a minimum six months.

b. You will be removed from our marketing databases and you will not be contacted during the period of your self-exclusion.

c. You cannot leave the scheme before the minimum exclusion period has expired.

By joining self-exclusion schemes, you are agreeing that:

a. The information you provide to join a scheme will only be shared with operators within the specific scheme.

b. You will stay away from the venues from which you have self-excluded.

It is up to you to keep to your self-exclusion agreement, but the company and the staff will do all they reasonably can to help you. If you visit our venue from which you have self-excluded and are recognised or identify yourself as being excluded, you will be asked to leave.
