Responsible Gambling


Bet Sensibly with Playa

We want to ensure that our customers always enjoy their experience when they visit Playa. That's why we ask you to bet responsibly. Betting can be great entertainment, provided you stay in control. We will always endeavour to help you if you find yourself in difficulties. Responsible gaming at Playa is based on four principles:

Security of the Playa

We take responsibility for the security of our playa's. Protection of playa's is based on exclusion of minors from the product line-up and the protection of privacy, which involves responsible dealings with data and payment processing. Fairness and the random nature of the products offered are monitored closely by independent authorities.

Security of the Game

Online monitoring at Playabets.co.za as well as the experience of our employees ensures protection against fraud. Manipulation of bets and money laundering are crimes and not a game.

Protection against gaming addiction

Betting should be considered as a fun way to spend time, not as a way to make money. Participation in bets and games of chance can lead to problems for a small group of customers.

Protection of minors

Playabets.com excludes minors (persons under the age of 18) from participation in online gaming. Confirmation of age and date of birth is therefore a mandatory procedure following the registration process. A copy of photographic identification is also required for customers to activate their account. Playabets.com takes its responsibility for preventing minors from taking part in gaming seriously.

Parents are advised to keep their access details safe at all times (user ID, password and your question and answer combination).

Also we recommend that you install software that enables you to block and filter web traffic in order to prevent minors from reaching betting and gambling web sites.

Advice for recognizing problematic behavior:

Problematic behaviour in gaming is defined as behaviour that damages the existence, work or financial situation of an individual or family. Long term gambling is certainly not suitable for the individual's personal situation and could have a negative overall impact on a person's well-being.
