Options for Limiting Your Spending When Gambling Online

February 5, 2018 •

Every now and then most gamblers will need to take a look at their gambling activities and just how much they are spending when playing any casino games, bingo or poker games or betting on sporting events.

Everybody who does gamble is going to experience losing streaks, and if you are currently on one then it can be a rather soul destroying and also often a very depressing time.

Therefore what you should be prepared to do when things maybe not going your way when you are gambling or when personal circumstances dictate that you are going to have to cut back on your spending, is to take a step back and put together a new gambling strategy and one that will see you reducing your bankroll when you do gamble.

It can of course be way too easy to carry on depositing money into any type of gambling site when you blew your previous deposit way too quickly, but there is a way that you can put into place some limits in regards to how much you can deposit.

One way is by making use of the deposit limit settings that most if not all fully licensed and regulated casino sites offer their customers. You will be able to choose your own daily, weekly and monthly deposit limit settings, and by doing so you will not be permitted to deposit any more cash into a gambling site once you reach your chosen deposit amount.

If you think that is too extreme an option then you can also simply play and gamble for lower stake amounts, most casino and bingo games offer various different stake level and card price options which you can play for and many poker sites will let you play at some much lower pot limit tables too.

It may also be worth every now and then having a gaming session that isn’t going to cost you anything to partake in. I don’t mean play for example at a casino site by using their free play games, as there is no real excitement in doing that!

Instead, look out for casino sites that offer free slot and other casino game tournaments, bingo sites that offer daily free games or poker sites that will be offering you Freeroll poker tournaments.

By doing so you will be playing at no risk what so ever to your bankroll and gambling budget, but you will have the chance of winning real money prices when you do so.

It may also be worth your while signing up to a range of casino sites that you have never played at before, as by doing so you will be able to mop up any and all new player sign up bonuses, some of which could offer no deposit bonuses and free slot spins too.  But do make sure that you stick to any new and much lower limits you have set yourself, which will of course take a little bit of willpower.
