OJO’s Tips for Safer Gambling

From old tricks to new strategies, OJO’s safer gambling tips will help keep your playtime fun.

Money tips

Manage your money - Keep betting money separate from life costs, make a budget and bet only what you can afford to lose.

Don’t borrow - Don’t borrow money to gamble or use money that’s meant for rent, bills or other life expenses.

Keep tabs on your play - Keep track of how often you’re playing and how much you’re spending. If you see a sudden increase or a gradual upward trend, ask yourself why.

Mindset tips

Play for fun - Gambling is for entertainment, not a way to make money. If you’re gambling for any reason other than fun, or it stops feeling fun, take a break.

Bet with a clear mind - Don’t gamble when you’re tired, stressed or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It can be harder to make sound decisions.

Stay cool - If you feel the game is against you or the results seem unfair, it’s time to take a break.

Betting tips

Don’t chase your losses - Playing to win back money you recently lost, especially by placing larger bets, is more likely to lead to bigger losses.

Understand the maths - It’s impossible for Red to appear 10 times in a row, right? Where random luck is concerned, nothing’s impossible.

You can’t predict the future - It’s impossible to predict the outcome with games of chance. You might see patterns or get a hunch, but games are totally random

Play management tips

Manage your time - It’s easy to lose track of time when you play. Set time checks or create your own alarms to help remind you when it’s time to stop.
