Deposit Limits

You can set yourself a maximum amount that you would like to deposit in either a week or a day. You can do this yourself in your account settings.

A week runs from midnight on Monday to 23:59:59 on the following Sunday. A day runs from midnight - midnight. Please note that there is a site maximum of £500.00 per week which applies to everyone.

If you are lowering your limit then this change will happen immediately.

If you are increasing your limit then the change will take 24 hours to come into effect. If, however, you have locked your limit into place, you will not be able to increase your limit until the lock period has elapsed. You can cancel a pending change during this 24 hour period.

Staying In Control

Online gaming is an exciting pastime for adults and at tombola we want the gaming experience to stay fun.

We want you to stay in control and we ask that you only wager funds you can afford to lose - it's all about playing responsibly and staying in control!

With this in mind you may find the following helpful:

  • Gaming is an exciting, enjoyable pastime and NOT a way of making money.
  • Never attempt to make up funds lost by staking further funds.
  • As mentioned above we only want you to wager funds that you can afford to lose.
  • If you don't feel in control use our deposit limits or get help from Gamcare.
  • Keep a record of how much you have spent and how long you have spent gambling.
  • Finally if you have developed a problem it is very important to seek help and advice. Please talk to Gamcare they are the experts. Gamcare is the UK's national centre for information, advice and practical help regarding gambling and its social effects.

Do You Have A Gambling Problem?

  • Do you stay away from work or college to gamble?
  • Do you gamble to escape from a boring or unhappy life?
  • When you run out of money while you're playing, do you feel lost and in despair, and feel the need to gamble again as soon as possible?
  • Do you gamble until your last penny is gone, even the bus fare home or the cost of a cup of tea?
  • Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time you have gambled?
  • Have others ever criticised your gambling?
  • Have you lied, stolen or borrowed just to get money to gamble or to pay gambling debts?
  • Are you reluctant to spend 'gambling money' on anything else?
  • Have you lost interest in your family, friends or other interests?
  • After losing, do you feel you must try and win back your losses as soon as possible?
  • Do arguments, frustrations or disappointments make you want to gamble?
  • Do you feel depressed or even suicidal because of your gambling?

If you have answered yes to some of the above questions then it's highly likely you may have developed a gambling problem. If you would like some advice and support then, contact Gamcare on their helpline.
