Put a limit on your spending

If you notice that you are spending more money on gambling than usual, you can put limits in place that will control how much you spend.

Many gambling sites will have a cap that you can put onto your account in order to make sure that you do not go over a certain amount. You are also able to set a limit on how much you spend on gaming machines in betting shops.
