Responsible Gaming

Vegas Partner Lounge believes in responsible gaming at all of our online casinos. Online gaming is a fun pastime and a pleasurable social activity, but it is important to always stay in control and not play beyond your means. Vegas Partner Lounge realizes that there are a small percentage of players who may lose control of their play - this leads to over-spending and pathological gambling addiction. Therefore, Vegas Partner Lounge is committed to creating a responsible gaming environment by implementing and maintaining eCOGRA's responsible gaming requirements for the benefit of both players and staff.


Problem Gambling

’Problem gambling’ is the term used to describe any form of gambling that is causing a problem in any area of a person’s life. Those who develop a ‘problem’ will more likely destroy most of the things that they value in their lives – family and friends, home, assets accumulated, job and other aspects – to continue gambling.

Financial issues are not the only issues involved in problem gambling. Other problems can include relationship breakdowns, job disruption, bankruptcy and a range of physical and emotional problems, suicide attempts, and involvement in criminal activity, etc.


How to know if you have a problem

If you have ever been worried that you might have a gambling problem or are just curious, try our quick self-assessment test:

  • Did you ever lose time from work or school due to gambling?
  • Has gambling ever made your home life unhappy?
  • Did gambling affect your reputation?
  • Have you ever felt remorse after gambling?
  • Did you ever gamble to get money with which to pay debts or otherwise solve financial difficulties?
  • Did gambling cause a decrease in your ambition or efficiency?
  • After losing did you feel you must return as soon as possible and win back   your losses?
  • After a win did you have a strong urge to return and win more?
  • Did you often gamble until your last dollar was gone?
  • Did you ever borrow to finance your gambling?
  • Have you ever sold anything to finance gambling?
  • Were you reluctant to use "gambling money" for normal expenditures?
  • Did gambling make you careless of the welfare of yourself or your family?
  • Did you ever gamble longer than you had planned?
  • Have you ever gambled to escape worry or trouble?
  • Have you ever committed, or considered committing, an illegal act to finance gambling?
  • Did gambling cause you to have difficulty in sleeping?
  • Do arguments, disappointments or frustrations create within you an urge to gamble?
  • Did you ever have an urge to celebrate any good fortune by a few hours of gambling?
  • Have you ever considered self-destruction or suicide as a result of your gambling?

Most compulsive gamblers will answer yes to at least seven of these questions.
