ArgoCasino.com is committed to sustain responsible gaming as a policy of customer care and social responsibility. We want you to enjoy your online gambling experience, and at the same time to understand the potential risks of gambling.
Gambling should be treated as a fun pastime, and not as a means to generate income. Although the majority of the players can treat gambling as recreation and spend only what they can afford to risk, for some it can be more difficult.
In order to maintain control of your gambling habits, please consider the following rules:
- If you choose to gamble – do it for entertainment purposes only
- Avoid chasing losses - there will always be another opportunity
- Set a deposit limit that can cover the losses – decide what you can afford to lose and how much you want to spend
- Keep track of the time and monitor the amount of money you spend
- In case you need a break from gambling, please contact our customer support
- In case you need additional information regarding gambling, please contact one of the organizations provided below.
