Responsible Gambling

At HelloRookie, we firmly believe in promoting responsible gambling as a fundamental aspect of our operations.

We understand that while most people gamble for fun and entertainment, there can be certain risks associated with it.

Therefore, our aim is to promote safe and controlled environments where players can enjoy their gaming experience without falling into the pitfalls of problem gambling.

We will only support sportsbooks, casinos, and other organizations that have responsible gambling systems in place for their bettors.

What is Responsible Gambling and Why We Take it Seriously

Responsible gambling involves making informed decisions about how much time and money you are willing to spend, ensuring that these do not exceed what you can afford.

It’s about recognizing that gambling should never be seen as a source of income or a way to recover from financial hardship. It’s about understanding that gambling should not interfere with your personal life, work commitments, or physical and mental health.

We take responsible gambling seriously as we care about the well-being of all of our readers.

While we love placing wagers on sports or spinning reels in a social casino, we also recognize that gambling can get away for anyone.

Setting Limits and Playing Smart

We highly recommend setting certain limits for yourself and sticking to them no matter what.

These could include deposit limits, loss limits, wager limits, and session limits. All sports betting platforms provide tools that allow you to set such limits easily.

We also encourage taking regular breaks from gambling to ensure it doesn’t consume too much of your time.

Going into gambling, whether sports betting or a casino, will help you from falling into an addiction.

What To Do If You Have a Gambling Problem

For anyone who feels they may be developing a problem with gambling, sportsbooks offer various resources and support services. This includes self-exclusion programs, where you can choose to block your access to their platform for a specified period.

While most states offer their own state-level programs, there are a couple options at the national and international levels.  All are helpful and it’s best if you go with one that you’re comfortable with.

  1. Gamblers Anonymous – This organization provides region-based helplines, physical or virtual meetings, as well as recovery programs.

  2. National Helpline 1-800-GAMBLER – This network provides a single national access point to local resources for those seeking help for a gambling problem. 

  3. International Problem Gambling Help Contacts – These contacts provide help to problem gamblers around the world, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, and more. Simply find your region and call the number or go to the site.

All of these resources have plenty to offer in terms of prevention and getting help.
