Responsible Gaming

Community Responsibility

As one of the first and most trusted, legit online casino sites in the Philippines and a PAGCOR online casino, InPlay is committed to responsible gambling. Remote gambling is legitimate entertainment for millions of players worldwide, with casino games available from the comfort of their own homes for a comfortable and enjoyable gaming experience.

Online casinos are enjoyable for most players, but a small percentage of players who engage in remote gambling face problems managing their game. Being a socially responsible company means caring for our players and proactively approaching the online community’s problems. This is why InPlay Philippines Online Casino has adapted and is fully committed to the strictest application and enforcement of the following policies.

Restricting Access by Minors or Non-qualified Players

InPlay Philippines Online Casino is a trusted online casino site operating under the oversight and licensing of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) in the Philippines. It places paramount importance on maintaining a safe and responsible gambling environment. As part of our commitment to legal and secure online casino games, we have implemented a rigorous Know Your Customer (KYC) process for new players.

This KYC process is imperative to ensure that players engaging in our casino games are not only of lawful age within their respective jurisdictions but also meet the qualifying criteria of being at least 21 years old and authorized remote gaming participants. Our dedication to this approach exceeds the stipulations set forth by the remote gambling authority, PAGCOR.

In the event that any suspicion arises regarding false declarations or the involvement of minors attempting to access our services, we are unwavering in our resolve to take reasonable and necessary measures for verification. Should such suspicions come to light, we reserve the right to temporarily suspend an account. To verify compliance with our policies, we may request proof of identity and age from the player.

Our advertising, sponsorship, and promotional endeavours are deliberately tailored to ensure they are not directed at minors or individuals who do not meet the qualifying standards. We strictly prohibit the use of our services by any individual under the age of 21 or those who do not meet the necessary qualifications.

While we are dedicated to fostering responsible gaming practices, we acknowledge that achieving this goal requires collective efforts. We kindly request your assistance by considering the following measures:

  • Utilize child protection software to block access to remote gambling sites on computers accessible to minors.
  • Prevent unauthorized access by refraining from leaving your computer or mobile devices unattended while logged into our site.
  • Disable the “Save Password” option on any InPlay login screen to prevent unauthorized use.
  • Establish separate profiles on computers and mobile devices to restrict access to your information when minors log in.
  • If you suspect an individual under the age of 21 has registered with us as a player, we encourage you to promptly contact us for immediate action.

At InPlay, we stand firm in our dedication to offering a secure and reputable online casino experience while upholding the legal standards set forth by PAGCOR. Your partnership in promoting responsible gaming practices is invaluable to us, and we appreciate your collaboration in maintaining a safe gaming environment for all.

Controlling Compulsive Gambling

 

Our unwavering commitment lies in the detection and mitigation of compulsive gambling behaviors. Through a sophisticated tracking system, we diligently monitor players’ activities, continuously refining and implementing controls aimed at curbing unsustainable gambling habits. While the majority of individuals gamble responsibly, it’s important to acknowledge that, for some, it can escalate beyond their control.

At InPlay, we are resolute in identifying those struggling with compulsive gambling and assisting them in addressing their issues. Simultaneously, our proactive approach endeavors to prevent other players from succumbing to compulsive gambling tendencies.
In your pursuit of a balanced gambling experience, please bear in mind the following guidelines:

  • View Gambling as Entertainment: Remember that gambling should be considered a form of entertainment. If you feel your spending is surpassing reasonable limits for enjoyment, take appropriate action.
  • Realistic Perspective on Gambling: Understand that gambling is not a reliable method of generating income. It’s important to approach it with realistic expectations.
  • Avoid Chasing Losses: Don’t fall into the trap of chasing losses. Instead, make decisions based on responsible gambling habits.
  • Gamble Within Your Means: Only engage in gambling activities with funds you can comfortably afford to lose without compromising your financial stability.
  • Monitor Time and Money: Keep track of both the time and money you allocate to gambling activities. This self-awareness can help you maintain control.

If you find it necessary to take a break from gambling, we encourage you to reach out by emailing [email protected] or visiting the PAGCOR website at https://pagcor.ph/regulatory.

InPlay Philippines Online Casino remains steadfast in fostering a secure and enjoyable environment for all users while aligning with the guidelines set forth by PAGCOR. By adhering to responsible gambling practices and seeking help when needed, we collectively contribute to a safer and more enjoyable gaming experience.

Strategies On Gaming with InPlay

Set a limit
It’s important to set a personal limit both on your time playing and money spent on online casino games. This will help with maintaining a healthy balance with your lifestyle.

Play for fun and not for profit
Gambling and online casino games should be used for entertainment purposes. Chances of winning may vary and are not guaranteed. Avoid chasing losses by placing larger bets or increasing your gambling frequency.

Keep a healthy mix of activities
Engage in other non-gambling activities in the Philippines: pursue hobbies, spend time with loved ones, and focus on personal growth outside of gambling. This minimizes the risk of being overly invested in the online casino gaming results.

Limit alcohol usage while playing
Drinking excessively can impair judgment which may lead to poor decision-making during gambling sessions. Limit your alcohol consumption or refrain completely while playing online casino games.

Consider your emotions and don’t hesitate to ask for help
Keep in mind that losing is an inevitable part of gambling and online casinos. Be mindful of your emotional well-being. Take a break and reach out to family, friends, or support groups for guidance and assistance if needed.
