Responsible
Gambling

Marathonbet is committed to providing a safe, comfortable gambling experience for all our customers.

For the vast majority of people, gambling is an enjoyable leisure activity. However, we recognise that, for some customers, there are times when gambling ceases being fun.

Here you can find tips on gambling responsibly, staying in control, and advice and organisations that can help if you suspect you have a gambling problem.

The signs of problem gambling

There are several warning signs that may indicate the presence of a gambling problem. These include:

  • Time: is your gambling activity becoming all-consuming to the detriment of your regular daily routine and commitments?
  • Transparency: are you comfortable discussing your recent gambling activities with others?
  • Socialising: is your gambling activity causing you to become increasingly withdrawn or change your social habits?
  • Borrowing money: are you borrowing money to maintain your gambling habit or chase losses?
  • Anxiety: are you regularly feeling anxious, depressed or irritable about your gambling?

Five key questions to ask yourself...

  1. Are you still finding the experience fun?
  2. Are you still calm and controlled with your decision-making?
  3. Are you keeping track of your recent spending patterns?
  4. Are you fully aware of your spending limits?
  5. Are you in need of a break?

Striking the right balance – tools that can help

If you recognise any of the common indicators of problem gambling outlined above, there are several steps you can take to ensure your gambling experience remains enjoyable.

Browse your account history
In your Marathonbet account, you can access a full history of your previous bets, withdrawals and deposits, as well as your current account balance. Use the filters to search for exactly how much you have staked, won and lost.

Set limits
Set daily, weekly and monthly limits to help control your gambling activity.

Take Time Out
Use our Time Out facility to take a break. From a few days to a few weeks, enjoy some breathing space and take the time you need to assess your gambling behaviour.

Reality Check
Available on our Casino, Reality Check is a pop-up to alert you to the time you have been spending gambling in our Casino. Use the Reality Check to set timed alerts and view your Casino betting history.

Self-exclusion
Self-exclusion is a fixed term where you can voluntarily opt to be denied access to our betting services. This period can be set from anything from six months to five years, or you can opt to be self-excluded permanently.
