www.casinocruise.com is committed to endorsing responsible gaming as a policy of customer care and social responsibility. We know for a small number of customers, gambling can cause personal, social and financial or health problems and we believe it is our responsibility to you, our customers, to ensure that you enjoy your wagering experience on our site, while remaining fully aware of the social and financial harms associated with problem gambling.
www.casinocruise.com takes its social responsibility very serious. Our dedication towards Responsible Gambling is also reflected by our donation to GambleAware. This organization funds education, prevention and treatment services and commissions research to broaden public understanding of gambling-related harm. The aim is to stop people getting into problems with their gambling, and ensure those that do develop problems receive fast and effective treatment and support.
Gambling should be treated as a fun pastime, and not as a means to generate income. Whilst the majority of the people are able to treat gambling as recreation and spend only what they can afford to risk, for some it can be more difficult. In order to maintain control of your gambling habits we remind you to always consider the following points:
- Gambling should be done in moderation and undertaken as a form of leisure not as a genuine way of making money
- Avoid chasing your losses - there will always be another day.
- Only gamble when you are in a position to cover potential losses
- Keep track of the time and monitor the amount of money you spend
- Should you need a break from gambling, this is possible by contacting our customer support team
- Self-exclusion should be used if you feel you are losing control of your gambling and you can activate self-exclusion by contacting customer support
If you need to talk to someone about any concerns you may have with your gambling habits, please contact one of the organizations’ detailed below under ‘Gambling Counselling Organizations’.

Standard Account Closure
Should you wish to take a break from gambling, whatever the reason may be (except in situation of gambling problems, where the self-exclusion option should be utilized as illustrated further down), we offer you to close/freeze your account with us. To close your account, please contact our Customer Support. A standard account closure means that your account can be reopened at any time, upon request. To reopen your account please contact Customer Support. In some instances, we may ask for a reason before activating the account. Furthermore, for players from the UK and playing under the UK jurisdiction we offer you a time-out period where you can take a break from gambling for anywhere between 1-45 days.
We provide a self-exclusion facility which can be activated by contacting Support. For players from the UK and playing under the UK jurisdiction, Self-exclusion means that your account will remain closed for a minimum period of 6 to 12 months (extendable, for one or more periods of at least six months by contacting customer support via email@example.com.) Prior to confirming a self-exclusion request, you will be provided with information regarding the consequences of self-exclusion. Should you decide to self-exclude, we encourage you to consider extending your self-exclusion to other remote gambling operators where you have an active account. Any undetermined bets at the time of your self-exclusion will be settled in the normal way, according to the normal timescales and, if subsequently applicable, winnings will be paid out. Any self-exclusion cannot be undone during the agreed self-exclusion period and your account will not be reactivated under any circumstances during the exclusion period. For players outside the UK, you can request a Self-Exclusion period of anytime up to 5 years. Should you want to terminate this period; a cool off period of 7 days will apply.
To reopen your account after the Self-exclusion has expired a written request must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org in which our Customer Support team will help you return to the website with our standard procedure.

As per our licence obligations you will be automatically excluded from other websites managed or operated by us on which you have registered. This will occur no later than 24 hours after your initial self-exclusion request has been received by us. During the period of self-exclusion, it will NOT be possible to reopen the account and any request to do so will automatically be rejected. You will also be removed from all Marketing Material.
