Rush Gaming Limited (“the Operator”, “we”) and its related sites (“the Website”) offer the Player (“Player(s), (“You”) outstanding online entertainment by creating an enjoyable and online gaming platform.
Gambling has long been a popular source of entertainment across the globe and, when played in a safe environment, it provides fun and excitement for players from all walks of life. The key to keeping it fun is to maintain that level of control – and here at RushCasino, we’re proudly committed to helping you do exactly that.
We acknowledge that even though most of our Players play for entertainment, there are few Players who may lose control of their playing. As such, we fully support and sponsor Responsible Gaming as a safeguard to a safe and controlled gambling environment, while keeping the following points in mind:
To avoid neglecting financial responsibilities, Players can and should, if desired, set a fixed amount intended to spend, avoiding you exceeding those limits. For this purpose, the Player has several options accessible in the Limitations section under the ‘Responsible Gaming’ page.
Players should control their expenses by taking small breaks during the game, in order to evaluate the results of the game, and remind themselves that they should not continue if the purpose is to recover their losses, as it could lead to serious problems.
The Player should be aware that gambling cannot be seen as a way of absconding from personal problems nor day-to-day difficulties, since, by doing so, they can easily fall in disproportionate behaviors and unconscious actions that could lead to addiction.
The Player must always keep in mind that they have the ability, at any moment and on their own initiative, to self-exclude themselves from playing games/gaming, temporarily or indefinitely in the section under “Self Exclusion” which can be found in the “Responsible gaming” tab
Please keep in mind that if you, as a Player have any concerns or is struggling to have control or stop the gambling activity, do contact our team. There are also organizations offering anonymous advice and support, like:
