Responsible Gambling

PROMOTING RESPONSIBLE GAMING IS A CORE VALUE OF ASYLUM LABS INC.

     We want all of our customers to have fun and to enjoy our games safely. We are committed to a policy of responsible gaming for our customers.  While we recognize that the overwhelming majority of our customers enjoy our various forms of gambling and non-gambling games responsibly, we also understand that there is a small proportion of the population who do not.

     To protect them, and others affected by their behavior, we are drafting a set of policies and guidelines modeled after the American Gaming Association’s Code of Conduct for Responsible Gaming. The “Code” establishes minimum standards that address problem gambling, underage gambling, and responsible Marketing and Advertising.

     Asylum Labs intends to use a variety of approaches to promote Responsible Gaming including employee training programs, customer awareness campaigns, self-exclusion and financial restriction programs, written procedures for recognizing and managing these issues, use of outside experts, and ongoing monitoring and review to gauge the effectiveness of these programs.

RECOGNIZING THE PROBLEM

 

     It is widely believed that 1-2% of all gamblers are compulsive and that most experience varying degrees of depression and problems in their lives. Participating in games of chance becomes a self-medicating distraction, providing only temporary relief from underlying problems associated with compulsive behavior.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A GAMBLING PROBLEM?

 

Review the following questions:

  • You have often gambled longer than you had planned.

  • You have often gambled until your last dollar was gone.

  • Thoughts of gambling have caused you to lose sleep.

  • You have used your income or savings to gamble while letting bills go unpaid.

  • You have made repeated, unsuccessful attempts to stop gambling.

  • You have broken the law or considered breaking the law to finance your gambling.

  • You have borrowed money to finance your gambling.

  • You have felt depressed or suicidal because of your gambling losses.

  • You have been remorseful after gambling.

  • You have gambled to get money to meet your financial obligations.​

If you or someone you know answers yes to any of these questions, consider seeking professional help or advice by calling the National Problem Gambling Helpline at 1-800-522-4700.
