6.1. Minors and Advice for Family & Friends

Minors

If you are under 18, please do not attempt to register an account with Marathonbet.

As a socially responsible operator, we employ an Over 18 policy and are committed to preventing underage gambling. Verification checks are conducted on Marathonbet customers, so if you register for a Marathonbet Account, please do not be offended if we ask you for proof of age and identity.

Parental Guidance

It is your responsibility to keep your Login and Password safe and secure, and not to allow anyone under the age of 18 to gain access to your account, including members of your family.

If you have concerns that your child, or someone you know under the age of 18, may be gambling through this site, or has access to personal and/or account details that would allow them to do so, then there are a number of options available to help you.

The following tools are useful to check and block underage access to our site and sites containing age specific content:

  • www.cybersitter.com—this allows specific sites to be blocked.
  • www.netnanny.com—this has filtering software protecting children from inappropriate web content.
  • www.bigdeal.org.uk—this service is offered by GamCare to provide young people with information and guidance around responsible gambling

Family & Friends

We understand that, when an individual develops a gambling problem, it not only affects them, but also their family and friends.

Situations like this can be very difficult to approach. The key is to offer your support throughout and outline the additional support options available when they are ready to consider them. Please see the Getting Assistance section of our website for details of leading organisations that may be able to help customers directly.

For any people close to an individual whose gambling behaviour they are concerned about, we recommend that you visit Gam-Anon, who specialise in providing support to those close to people affected by responsible gambling difficulties—www.gamanon.org.uk.
