Pre-Commitment and Self-Exclusion

All Online Bookmakers in Australia offer Pre-Commitment Limits and Self Exclusion options.

Pre-Commitment Limits allow you to set a limit for your gambling before you begin. We recommend all customers set a limit that is appropriate for them.

For people who are no longer able to gamble safely, self-exclusion is designed to prevent gamblers from accessing gambling services. Many jurisdictions also allow you to exclude from multiple venues or bookmakers at once.
