Setting limits is one of the best things that you can do at an internet casino as soon as you sign up to the casino, especially if you plan on playing in real money mode. At most casinos on the internet, you can simply log in to your account and set these limits yourself. However, at other casinos, you may need to contact 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.
Setting a playing limit is a great way to control how much you spend in the casino and it is a really useful casino bankroll management tool. 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 into effect straight away. For example, If you set a $50 per month deposit limit and you deposit the full $50 on April 15th, you would not be able to make another deposit until May 15th. 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 then 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 into effect until May 15th. Otherwise, there would be no point in setting them in the first place. Also, 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 around. That way you don’t have to keep changing them. We always recommend setting suitable limits based on your wage and how much you generally spend on weekly shopping and other bills. It is essential to 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.
Lowering Stake vs Setting a Limit
We also recommend lowering your stake, to begin with when playing at best online casinos for US players 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. This is probably less than ten seconds of playtime 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 casino sites
