Gambling Controls Offered by Sportsbooks

In an effort to fight gambling addiction, sportsbooks offer a variety of tools to help customers set limits on deposits and wagering, or to lock themselves out of their account altogether. These tools include:

Self Exclusion: Sportsbook customers that believe they have a gambling problem always have the ability to lock themselves out of their account for a set amount of time or permanently. This option can be found in your account at every major sportsbook.

Deposit Limits: Sportsbooks will allow you to set a deposit limit for a given period of time. With this tool, users are able to set both the maximum deposit and the time period over which that limit applies to.

Bet Limits: With bet limits, or spending limits, users are able to cap the amount they can wager over a given time period. Like deposit limits, users can determine what their spending limit is and the amount of time that must pass before that limit resets.

If you experience any issues while trying to access these tools, we encourage you to reach out to your sportsbook's customer support team for assistance.
