We take the issue of responsible gaming very seriously and are dedicated to providing a responsible gaming service for all our players.
We want you to have fun and enjoy your online experience with Postcode Scratch while enabling you to gamble responsibly at all times.

For millions of people games are a form of entertainment, but for some individuals who may have gambling problems, it can be like a liquor store for an alcoholic.

Whilst the majority of people do gamble responsibly, for some, gambling can become a problem.

We suggest the following guidelines to gambling responsibly:

    Please try and establish limits for purchasing, wagering and losses before you commence gambling.
  • Gambling is not advised if it interferes with your daily responsibilities.
  • Gambling is not advised if you are in recovery for any dependency or are under the influence of alcohol or any other substance.
  • Gambling is not advisable if you are attempting to make up for any prior losses.
  • You are of the legal age to gamble in your jurisdiction.

Some signs to detect the potential risks of gambling;

  • You play to escape from reality
  • You play to solve your economic problems
  • You are not able to stop playing, regardless of whether you won or lost
  • You play until you lost all the money available
  • You neglect your family to play
