For most of us, gambling is just a bit of fun that we can enjoy any time, but a small percentage of players might be underage or might have let gambling become the main focus in their life. As the provider of our gambling and betting services, ParsGoal.com is committed to responsible gambling.
Nobody under the age of 18 is allowed to play our games. If you are worried that under-18s may use your computer to play our games, try any of the following steps:
-Use child protection software, such as Cyberpatrol, Cybersitter and K9 Web Protection to block gaming sites from under-18s
-Don't leave the computer unattended when you are logged in
-Don't share your credit card or bank account details with under-18s
-Do not use the 'Save Password' option on log-in screens
-Create separate profiles for everyone who uses your computer, so that nobody else can access your information
If you know someone under the age of 18 who is registered with us, please contact us immediately at [email protected].
People who may need to control their gambling
Most people gamble within their means, but for some it can spiral out of control. When playing the games, keep in mind the following:
-Gambling should be entertaining and not 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
