Realmoneypokertips.com shares the idea of responsible gaming:
• Gamble only what you can afford to lose, do not spare money for everyday expenses
• Decide how much you are going to spend and how high your losses can be, follow this decision
• Don’t chase losses (it’s normal to lose, after all, this is why it’s called gambling!)
• Set a time limit for your gambling activities, take regular breaks
• Don’t play if you are feeling down
• Don’t play if you’re feeling sleepy
• Use the tools provided by many gambling operators: Customer-Led Deposit Limits – let you control the amount you deposit into your account; Self-Exclusion Tools – you can set a period of time in which you are not able to log in to your account
