The Genting Casino experience has been created for your enjoyment. As a responsible and regulated company we have created some advice on responsible gaming which we recommend you read.
Managing your account
For players who enjoy gambling frequently, it is not uncommon to overspend your budget some of the time.
We advise that specific budget plans be made to ensure your gambling expenditure is affordable.
Sometimes people deny the extent of their own problems and seek help only in crisis.
Ask yourself honestly whether you have a problem and if you think you might have a problem, set yourself the goal of stopping gambling for two weeks or a month as a test. If you are unable to achieve this, you could have a problem and might benefit from discussing your situation with a counsellor.
Genting Alderney actively supports the charities “Remote Gambling Trust” (RGT) and “Remote Gambling Association” (RGA) who will assist you, should you need it their details can be found here, http://www.responsiblegamblingtrust.org.uk/ and http://www.rga.eu.com/
If you would like to prevent access to other participating gaming, wagering or gambling facilities on the internet please visit www.gamblock.com.
Gamblock™ blocks access to participating internet gambling sites on the web. It can help problem gamblers avoid some of the dangers of unrestricted gambling.
2. Limiting Your Personal Expenditure
Genting provides help to control your gambling. You can establish limits on the amount you deposit during registration or at any time later, bet and lose by accessing the gaming info tab in the “My Account” section of your online account.
3. Managing The Length Of Time You Play
It is sometimes easy to lose track of time whilst gambling, so Genting gives you the option to set a timed reminder which alerts you to how long you have played for. You must click ‘OK’ to continue playing.
If you believe you have a gambling problem or just wish to take an enforced break from gaming please let us know

Preventing Under Age Gambling
You must be at least 18 years old, or of legal age to gamble in the country in which you reside (whichever is older), to play in the Genting Casino. Our casino is not designed to attract children and we aggressively discourage and track minors who attempt to play at our casino. Unfortunately, no system is foolproof. Some young people may escape our detection. If you know a person under the legally gambling age in their jurisdiction who is registered with Genting Casino, please notify us immediately.
To help you understand the rules relating to the games offered at Genting Casino launch the casino software and view them in the help section.
Responsible gaming checklist
- Decide in advance how often you will play and how much money and time you will spend.
- Decide in advance the point you will set yourself to stop - then stick to it. The stopping point might be, for example when you have reached the spending limit you have set yourself or when you have a spent a certain amount of time playing.
- Bear in mind that sometimes responsible gambling is about making a decision to not gamble at all.
Always remember – a person who gambles responsibly:
- Gambles for enjoyment, not to make money or to escape problems;
- Understands that they are very unlikely to win in the long run;
- Does not try to ‘chase’ or win back losses;
- Only ever gambles with money set aside for entertainment and never uses money intended for rent, bills and food;
- Does not borrow money to gamble;
- Does not let gambling affect their relationships with family and friends
If you feel you may have a problem with your gambling, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you stay away from work, college or university to gamble?
- Do you gamble alone for long periods of time?
- Do you gamble to escape from a boring or unhappy life?
- If when gambling you run out of money, do you feel lost and in despair, and need to gamble again as soon as possible?
- Do you gamble until your last penny is gone?
- Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you have spent gambling?
- Have others ever criticized your gambling?
- Have you lied, stolen or borrowed just to get money to gamble or pay gambling debts?
- Are you reluctant to spend
