FIXED ODDS & CASINO DEPOSIT LIMITS

🥂If you want an extra safety net while gambling you can place deposit limits placed on your fixed odds ledger.

Gross Fixed Odds Deposit Limit

🍸Setting a gross deposit limit will restrict the gross amount you can deposit into your fixed odds wallet (includes casino) over a chosen time period. You can set a daily, weekly or monthly (30 days) gross fixed odds deposit limit. Please note that these limits apply only to gross amounts paid or transferred into your fixed odds wallet and will not affect your main spread betting account.

Net Fixed Odds Deposit Limit

🔴Setting a net deposit limit will restrict the net amount you can deposit into your fixed odds wallet (includes casino) over a chosen time period. You can set a daily, weekly or monthly (30 days) net fixed odds deposit limit. Please note that these limits apply only to net amounts paid or transferred into your fixed odds wallet and will not affect your main spread betting account.

𒅌You may request to be self-excluded from one or more of our gambling and betting services (comprising our casino service; virtual sports service; fixed odds service and spread betting service) at any time for an initial minimum period of six months. You have the option of extending this for one or more further periods of at least six months at any time up to a total of up to five years.

If you do not wish to self-exclude online and/or you are considering self-excluding from our Spread Betting service you may request a self-exclusion form from us either in person by attending our offices at Churchill House, Upper Marlborough Road, St Albans, AL1 3UU; over the telephone by calling our Back Office team on 01727 895000; or by email to [email protected]. In response to a request being received from you for a self-exclusion form, we shall email it to you. It is your responsibility to sign this form and to return it to us by email to [email protected]. Please note that you are required to take this action in order for our self-exclusion procedures to take effect.
൩Upon receipt of an online request or signed self-exclusion form we shall take steps as soon as reasonably practicable to prevent you for an initial six month period (or for such extended period as you may have specified) from participating in the gambling and/or betting service that you have requested to be excluded from in your signed self-exclusion form. Within two days of receipt of the signed self-exclusion form we shall remove you from all marketing lists used by the company.

At the end of your initial six months self-exclusion period (or at the end of such extended period as you may have specified), your self-exclusion will remain in place for a minimum of seven years, unless and until you confirm to us in person or over the telephone that you wish to resume participating in the gambling and/or betting service that you are currently self-excluded from. Upon receiving this confirmation, we shall email to you self-exclusion revocation form. It is your responsibility to sign this form and to return it to us by email to [email protected]🎀.

You may withdraw your self-exclusion revocation at any time during the cooling off period.

🍷Please note that we are not required to, and do not, carry out any particular assessment or judgment as to whether a previously self-excluded individual should again be able to participate in the gambling and/or betting services we offer.

൲We assume no legal duty to you in relation to your request to self-exclude. We expressly disclaim any legal liability for the consequences of your continuing to participate in our gambling and/or betting services as a result of a failure by us to implement our self-exclusion procedures following receipt of your self-exclusion form.

Staff training

  • Avoid chasing losses
  • Only gamble what you can afford to lose
  • Keep track of the time and amount you spend gambling
  • If you want to have a break from gambling you can use our self-exclusion measure (details are provided above)

Underage gambling

✨It is against the law for those under the age of 18 to open an account and bet with us. We take our responsibilities in this regard very seriously. We carry out age verification checks on all customers. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age from any customer, and customer accounts may be suspended until satisfactory proof of age is provided or if we think the account may be being used by someone under the age of 18. Anyone under the age of 18 found to be using this site will have any winnings forfeited and also will be reported to the police. Spreadex displays an 'over 18's only' message on all its web pages.

Filtering systems

🌠If you share your computer with friends and family who are under the legal age to register or bet with our site, or if you believe that you may have a gambling problem, there are a number of third-party applications that can be used to monitor or restrict the computer's access to the internet:

  • The Internet Matters website, run by an independent not-for-profit organisation to help parents keep their children safe online, provides a guide on how to set parental controls on computers and mobile devices:
  • Net Nanny filtering software protects children from inappropriate web content:
  • Cyberpatrol safety software enables control of internet access:
