At BETDAQ, we seek to ensure our customers enjoy their gaming experiencing in a safe and responsible environment. We recognise that gambling can become a problem for a small minority of people and aim to minimise the negative impact of gambling and offer support to those in need.
In addition, we take extra measures to verify that customers must be over 18 years of age.
In order to assist our players in gambling responsibly we have provided the following features on our site - all of which can be enabled from the My Account section.
Customer driven deposit and stake limits
Customers can set daily / weekly / monthly deposit limits on their accounts or also update their preferences to set a recommended stake / liability per bet
Time Out Options
Customers can choose to Time Out of their account for a set period of time. Their account will be frozen until the specified time as passed.
BETDAQ are part of the first phase of the UK’s national online self-exclusion scheme, powered by GAMSTOP. GAMSTOP currently includes a large number of online gambling websites, but not all. Later this year, all online gambling websites will be required to join by the Gambling Commission.
Alternatively, customers can choose to self-exclude from their BETDAQ account for a minimum of six months. More information about self-exclusion can be found here.

Are you having problems?
If you are concerned you may have problems gambling, please ask yourself the following questions:
• Have others ever criticised your gambling?
• Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you have gambled?
• Do arguments, frustrations or disappointments make you want to gamble?
• Do you gamble alone for long periods?
• Do you stay away from work, college or school to gamble?
• Do you gamble to escape from a boring or unhappy life?
• Are you reluctant to spend 'gambling money' on anything else?
• Have you lost interest in your family, friends or pastimes due to gambling?
• After losing, do you feel you must try and win back your losses as soon as possible?
• When gambling and you run out of money, do you feel lost and in despair, and need to gamble again as soon as possible?
• Do you gamble until your last penny is gone, even the bus fare home or the cost of a cup of tea?
• Have you lied, stolen or borrowed just to get money to gamble or to pay gambling debts?
• Do you feel depressed or even suicidal because of your gambling?
If you have answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may have a gaming dependency.

It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to gamble with BETDAQ. We require new customers to declare they are over 18 years of age and carry out electronic checks on all new accounts. Should we have further concerns, we reserve the right to request further information to establish the customers' identity.
BETDAQ uses sophisticated age verification systems and procedures to minimise the risk of underage customers from using our on-line services. Nevertheless, we recommend that parents and guardians who use a family-shared computer to install filtering software in order to restrict internet access to children and minors.
There are a number of parental filtering solutions that can be used to monitor or restrict access to the Internet:
www.netnanny.com - filtering software that protects children from inappropriate web content.
www.cybersitter.com - a filtering software which allows parents to add their own sites to block.
www.betterinternetforkids.eu - a website which is co-funded by the EU and provides information about internet filter software and also offers a free test version.
