Setting Limits at Online Casinos

Setting Limits at Online Casinos

One of the best things that you can do at an online casino would be to set limits as soon as you sign up to the casino, especially if you plan on playing in the real money mode. This is a great way to control how much you spend in the casino and it is a really useful online casino bankroll management tool.

At most online casinos you can simply login to your account and set these limits yourself, but at other casinos you may need to contact the player support and get a professionally trained member of the casino to set the limits for you. You can often set deposit limits, spending limits and/or session time limits.

Once you have set these limits you can easily go back in and change them again, but the changes that you are trying to make will not come in to effect straight away. For example let’s just say that you set a $50 per month deposit limit and you deposit the full $50 on April 15th. This means that you would not be ab le to make another deposit until May 15th and then when this time comes you could make up to a $50 deposit again.

If you set this exact limit ($50 deposit limit per month) on April 15th but the decide that this is too little and you want to change it on April 16th, the new limits that you set would still not come in to effect until May 15th, otherwise there would be no point setting them in the first place and there would be no point in the casino even having this responsible gambling feature available.

In other words make sure that you set suitable limits the first time round so that you don’t have to keep going back and changing them. We always recommend setting suitable limits based on your wage and also based on how much you generally spend on weekly shopping and other bills and never gamble more than you can afford. For example if you only earn $500 per week then we don’t recommend spending $100 of this on gambling.

We also recommend lowering your stake to begin with when playing at online casinos because quite often the default stake/wager is set to a higher amount than some of us can afford. For example you might launch an online slot machine in the real money mode and you will see that the cost of the spin is $2.00.

If you only deposit AU$10.00 in the casino it means that you will only get five spins on the game and probably less than ten seconds of play time in the casino. You could reduce the stake to maybe $0.20 - $0.25 per spin and this will give you a bit longer in the casino and far more spins. These are just some of the things you should take into account when playing in the real money mode at top USA casino sites like Drake Casino, Las Vegas Usa Casino and Café Casino.
