Player Protection Policy
1. Protection of Minors
With the Internet so readily accessible via mobile devices and in homes around the world, responsible online gambling relies heavily on parental control and supervision. In order to ensure child safety on the Net, The Hippodrome Online Casino encourages its Customers to make use of filtering software to prevent minors from accessing inappropriate online material.
Tips for Parents:
- Do not leave your computer unattended when logged in to your Hippodrome Online Casino Account.
- Password-protect your Hippodrome Online Casino Account.
- Do not allow persons under 18 to participate in any gambling activity.
- Keep your Hippodrome Online Casino Username and password safe.
- Keep your credit/debit card(s) out of the reach of children.
- Do not save passwords on your computer. Write them down and keep them in a safe place, away from minors.
- Limit the amount of time your children spend online and make use of filtering software to prevent your children from accessing inappropriate material.
Underage gambling is not only illegal, but can also result in gambling dependencies and huge gambling debts incurred by unsupervised children.
So, if you share your mobile phone, tablet, laptop or computer with friends or family who are under the legal age to participate in online gambling, The Hippodrome Online Casino advocates you restrict their access to our website by registering with Net Nanny, a world leader in real-time Internet filtering technology.
Other Important Tips:
- Make sure that the decision to gamble is your own personal choice.
- Establish limits for depositing, wagering and even losses before you commence gaming.
Never gamble if:
- you are younger than the legal gaming age
- it interferes with your daily responsibilities
- you are being treated or are in recovery for a dependency
- you are under the influence of alcohol or any other substance
- you are attempting to win back previous losses
- your primary purpose is to recoup your debt with your winnings
