Playbet would like for you to maintain responsible gambling and therefore we urge you to keep the following in mind:

 

Should you feel the need put your gambling on hold for whatever the reason may be then contact us on support@playbet.co.za 

We would like to offer you the opportunity to have your account deactivated for a temporary period and should you have the need to log in within the deactivation period, you will be denied access for the benefit of yourself.

The participation in gambling should be purely for recreational purposes and should never be done in order to make money or maintain a lifestyle. Gambling should not result in you chasing any losses that you may have and should only be done if you are able to cover any losses that may occur while playing. It is important to keep track of: How much time you spend gambling and the amount of money that you spend on your gambling habits. It is also important to limit yourself to how much you are allowed to spend on stakes during the day, week or month.
