Responsible Gambling


At Bucky Bingo, our players are our main priority. We aim to offer a safe and secure environment for you to play in. Before playing any of our games, we encourage you to take a look at our responsible gaming page, which offers advice on how to game safer and smarter.

There are various techniques and methods which can be applied to your gameplay, which will help create a more positive experience while on our site. Your wellbeing is paramount to us, so we want to offer a more in-depth read towards gambling responsibly.

Discover our top tips on how to stay in control of your actions.

Stick To Your Budget

Remember, you are only gaming for fun. Although money is involved with playing casino games, they should not be an attempt to ‘get up’ or ever visualised as a money-making scheme. All games payout via a random number generator, so at no point is a slot machine ever scheduled to ‘payout’ or are they ever ‘due to pay’.

Before starting your game, we recommend that you a set a budget at how much you are willing to stake and stick to it. Planning is a safe way of staying in control of your betting amounts, as it allows you to keep track of how much you are spending.

Please remember only to bet what you can afford to lose. Bucky Bingo allows players to set deposit limits on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. This means that you can never go over budget, as you can set a limit that you never wish to exceed. Also, make sure to keep track of your betting history. This allows you to see how much you have spent and exactly how much time you have spent online.

Keep in control of your betting amounts. Bet responsibly.

Take Frequent Breaks

Another top tip that we encourage to players is to take frequent breaks when playing. As mentioned, no casino game is ever scheduled to payout, so don’t think that staying online for a long period of time will increase your chances of winning. When you play with Bucky Bingo, you can have the option to disable your account for a certain period of time. We simply call this ‘taking a timeout’, as you control how long you want your account to be disabled for.

Alongside our timeouts, we also offer players the chance to lock their accounts altogether. Self-exclusion is a beneficial tactic to take time away from gaming. Choose how long you wish to lock your account for, with there being an option of up to five years at Bucky Bingo. When activated, you will be unable to log back into your account.

Taking frequent breaks is a simple, yet effective method to help create a positive experience online. You should do this if you are feeling upset or stressed, as this isn’t a suitable mindset to be gambling with. Keep a clear head and never game under the influence of either drink or drugs.

Signs of Gambling Addiction

It can be quite hard to recognise whether you or somebody that you know has a gambling problem. Sometimes the signs can be smaller than others, making them harder to detect. Although there are various other indicators, here is a list of some of the most common symptoms:

  • Always thinking about or talking about gambling.
  • You are lying about your gambling activity to others.
  • You are betting amounts of money that you cannot afford to lose.
  • You are losing interest in other hobbies like spending time with your family or friends.
  • You are borrowing money to pay for your gambling habits.
  • You have a constant feeling of worry, depression or guilt.
  • You start neglecting work and those around you.
  • You think about or actually steal money to continue gambling.

If you feel like any of these points relate to your own gaming experience, we encourage that you stop gambling right away and get in touch with people who are trained to help you. Our responsible gaming page has more information about specialist support on offer and visit www.gamstop.co.uk 

Gambleaware is also another confidential website that can help inform you about gambling decisions and activity.
