Underage gambling!To register or play at InstaCasino you must be over 18 years old. We perform identity and security checks on a regular basis and may request proof of age when necessary. Keep your account information safe from the access of underage people. If you feel like something is wrong and an underage person could have access to your computer, these filtering solutions will give you an extra hand.
Play responsibly!Playing at InstaCasino should be a fun experience, so we want you to enjoy the excitement of playing with moderation. Sometimes you may feel that your lucky stars have abandoned you at the most critical moment. Most probably you’re not jinxed, because losing is sometimes a part of gambling. Thus, playing should be considered more as a form of entertainment and not as an investment or as a way of making money. If you feel that you are losing control over your gambling, there are some options you might want to consider:
Set yourself gaming limitsAt InstaCasino you can set your own personal gaming limits for your account. You can control your gambling with these four different limits:
- Deposit limit: The amount of money you’ll be able to deposit on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- Loss limit: The maximum amount of money you’ll be able to lose over a certain period of time.
- Wagering limit: The amount of money you`ll be able to wager on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- Session time limit: The length of a session allowed before you are automatically logged off.
Time out:From time to time you may wish to take a break from playing with InstaCasino. You are able to temporally freeze your account for a set period of time of 1 day, 1 week or 1 month.
Please note: when you freeze your account, if you wish to unfreeze you will have a cooling off period of 7 days before the change will take effect.
Self ExclusionSelf-exclusion is a formal process whereby you choose to close your account for a period of between 6 months and 5 years. During the chosen period all online accounts that you hold with both Betit Operations Limited and MT SecureTrade Limited will be subject to your self-exclusion request. This facility is available through the limits section or by contacting our Customer Service.
During the self-exclusion agreement we will 'close' any accounts you hold with us and our group companies and return any remaining balances to you. Once you have chosen to self-exclude, the process cannot be reversed for any reason and you will not be able to apply to open new accounts.
During this period we will not send you any marketing material and we cannot accept any deposits or bets. Please note however, that whilst your details will be removed from our mailing database this may not prevent you from receiving marketing material which is already in the process of being sent. We would ask you to please disregard any such material received accordingly.
Once the self-exclusion period has expired, your accounts will remain closed unless you contact us by e-mail or chat to reactivate. Once a reactivation request has been received, a further 24 hour 'cool off' period applies.
If residing in the UK you will have the option to select a reality check on your account upon logging into your account. This allows you to receive a notification either every 15 minutes, 30 minutes or 60 minutes. This notification will tell you how long you have been playing and also how much you have won/lost.
