Problem Gambling

For most people, gambling is entertainment - a fun activity that can be enjoyed without harmful effect. But for some, it's not just a game - it's a serious problem that continues even after the fun has gone.

At Bingo Loopy we take our responsibilities seriously. We’re all about low stakes, fun gambling where our customers gamble within the limits of what they can afford.

If you wish to set your own deposit limits, for example set the maximum you can deposit per day/week/month, then please email support@bingoloopy.com.

Bingo is one of the least addictive forms of gambling but that does not mean you cannot become addicted to it. We monitor all customers’ accounts for signs of problem gambling and take a proactive approach to ensuring our customers play bingo and the other games on the site at sensible and fun levels.

Problem gambling (otherwise known as gambling addiction) can destroy your own life and the lives of those closest to you. If you think you have a problem with controlling your gambling then you should seek expert advice immediately. Contact our customer support team and they will close your account with Bingo Loopy and help you find support near where you live.

You may also want to contact GamCare (www.gamcare.org.uk), the UK’s leading problem gambling charity. They have an excellent website and discussion forum or you can call them on 0845 6000 133.

Some of the warning signs that a person may be suffering from a gambling problem include:

  • Losing time from work or family due to gambling.
  • Repeated failed attempts to stop or control gambling.
  • Borrowing money to gamble or pay gambling debts.
  • Gambling to escape worry or trouble.
