Maltcasino.com offers you a safe and enjoyable gaming experience, but always remember: play responsibly! We are dedicated to encouraging responsible gaming conduct, spreading knowledge on gambling addiction and improving intervention policies and treatment for this problem.
Gambling can become a genuine addiction, as like any other activity when taken to excess. Anyone can lose control of his or her gaming, regardless of age, cultural background and financial situation.
On this page you’ll find useful advice and resources to help avoid ending up with an addiction.
Remember though that whilst gambling operators can provide tools with which an individual can control their gambling, the operator cannot assume all responsibility for exercising that control. There has to be a large element of personal responsibility.Use the tools we offer or, if you think you will try to circumvent them, please do seek advice from a specialist gambling charity.
Throughout this section we offer you guidelines & instructions on how to monitor your, a family member's or a friend's gambling to ensure that it does not become a problem.

CAN A PLAYER BE EXCLUDED INDEFINITELY?
Our goal is to promote responsible gambling. For this reason, Maltcasino.com reserves the right to deny access to those who display behavior typical of a compulsive gambler. Our responsible gambling policy only allows gamblers to request temporary exclusion TWICE. A third request will mean permanent exclusion.
ONCE A PLAYER HAS BEEN EXCLUDED, CAN HE ACCESS HIS ACCOUNT?
No. During the period of total exclusion it will not be possible to log in to the site and access your account nor change the exclusion period. This is the reason why, before requesting permanent exclusion, we recommend that you withdraw any amount still left in your account. If you have not done so, we suggest that you contact our Customer Service directly for information on the options that allow excluded players to withdraw their money.
