Playing it Safe, Staying in Control

For most people, gambling is fun and a great way to enjoy themselves. But, for a small minority, gambling can become a problem.

Problem gambling can affect anyone.

We want our customer to stay in control and gamble within their means.

Gambling whilst under the age of 18 is a criminal offence and the Casino at The Corinthian takes its responsibilities to prevent access by under-18s very seriously indeed.

The Casino at The Corinthian reserves the right to ask for proof of age from any customer and to carry out checks to verify the information provided. During this period of age verification, no winnings will be paid to any customer.

STRATEGIES FOR HELP

  • There are a number of options that can be implemented to help keep your gambling dependency under control:
  • Please speak to the manager for more information and assistance.
  • Be honest
    • Stop hiding your gambling or keeping your gambling secret.
  • Talk about it
    • Talk to someone you trust — your family, a friend or call the GamCare Help Line on 0808 8020 133, for confidential advice.
  • Talk to the Manager
    • They do understand. Their experience in the industry gives them an awareness of the issues involved.
  • Take short breaks
    • Just having a reality break can help you see things differently. You’ll feel better for it!
  • Set limits
    • Make a commitment before you start playing to set yourself a limit on how much time and money you will spend and keep to it!
  • Organise
    • If you’re concerned about you gambling, organise a period of self-exclusion with the manager. It’s simply filling in a form. After the period of suspension is over, it can be reviewed with the manager.
