www.osgpoker.com is committed to responsible gambling. Our company seeks to surpass mere compliance with applicable legislation and guidelines provided by the remote gambling authorities and continue to be a socially responsible remote gambling operator. Remote gambling is a legitimate form of entertainment that is experienced by millions of players worldwide. For most players remote gambling is an enjoyable experience, however, the reality must be accepted that a small percentage of players engaging in remote gambling might be underage or might have a problem with gambling taking over their life and finances.
Being a socially responsible company means taking caring of our players, means having a proactive approach about the problems that affect the community. This is why we have adopted and is fully committed to the strictest application and enforcement of the following policies:
Limiting Access by Minors
We require new customers to declare that they are of lawful age in their respective jurisdiction and at least 18 years old. We further pursue reasonable measures to verify this, should we have a suspicion of a false declaration or minors attempting to use our services. In this respect, if we have a suspicion to this extent, we reserve the right to suspend an account and request proof of identity and age from the player to verify compliance with this policy.
Furthermore, to ensure that minors do not play on our site, we require the name, address and birth date of all our customers upon sign up; information that is declared by the customer to be truthful and accurate.
We also ensure that all advertising, sponsorship and promotional activity is not targeted at minors.
We do not allow anybody under the age of 18 to use our services. This policy is in full compliance and exceeds the requirements of the rules and regulations of the remote gambling authority who oversees and licenses our operation.
We pledge to do all we can but we need your help also:
- Use child protection software to block remote gambling sites from computers minors might have access to.
- Do not leave the computer unattended when you are logged on to a remote gambling site.
- Do not share your credit card or bank account details with minors.
- Do not leave any 'Save Password' option enabled on any login screen.
- Create separate profiles for minors on computers so that when they log in they cannot access your information.
- If you know someone under the age of 18 (or the lawful age in their respective jurisdiction) who is by mistake registered with us as a player, please contact us immediately.
Controlling Compulsive Gambling
Compulsive gambling does not benefit us. We strive to have a safe, fun environment on our site. Compulsive gamblers are a problem for their families, friends and their lives, creating an unstable, unsafe environment.
We are committed to detecting and reducing compulsive gambling. We have a system to track player’s activities, and we are constantly working to design and enforce controls designed to limit gambling patterns that are out of control.
While the majority of people do gamble within their means, for some, it can spiral out of control. We strive not only to identify compulsive gamblers, but also help them address their problem and prevent other players from becoming compulsive gamblers.
In order to help you keep control, we would like you to remember the following:
- Gambling should be seen as entertainment, address it as if you are paying for entertainment so do not over pay for your entertainment.
- Gambling should NOT be seen as a genuine way of making money
- Avoid chasing losses
- Only gamble what you can afford to lose
- Keep track of the time and amount of money you spend gambling
- If you need help, use the deposit limits and time limits to control the amount you can spend
- If you need to take a break from gambling, contact us for a self-exclusion or suspension account
We follow the guidelines of institutions dedicated to addressing the social impact of gambling. To help players gamble responsibly, we commit to work with these institutions to develop responsible policies and practices. In addition, we encourage the following:
