Playing Responsibly

TheGivingMachine's GivingLottery makes every effort to behave in a socially responsible manner. It is illegal for anyone under 18 to play TheGivingMachine's GivingLottery and we have measures in place to ensure we do everything in our power to control underage playing. TheGivingMachine's GivingLottery is an incentivised means of supporting good causes. However, before entering into any scheme which involves speculative spending, you are advised to remember the following:

  • Don't think of gambling as a way to make money
  • Only gamble with money you can afford to lose
  • Set a money limit in advance
  • Never chase your losses
  • Don't gamble when you're depressed or upset
  • Balance gambling with other activities

If you think you may have a problem with gambling, contact the National Gambling Helpline confidentially on 0808 8020 133. Alternatively, visit the Gamble Aware website at www.begambleaware.org or the GamCare website at www.gamcare.org.uk.

Self Exclusion Policy

We offer a Self Exclusion facility specifically for those customers for whom gambling has become a serious problem and who wish to restrict their gambling with the GivingLottery.

By entering into a Self Exclusion agreement with TheGivingMachine's GivingLottery you will be prevented from using your account for a minimum period of 6 months up to 5 years (with the option of extending this if you wish). We will close your account and return any outstanding funds held in your name.

During this period of self-exclusion TheGivingMachine's GivingLottery will not distribute any promotional emails and do all we can to prevent new accounts being opened. When the exclusion period ends we won’t contact you to ask if you would like to reinstate your account.

In order to facilitate gambling again, after the exclusion period you will need to contact the support team on 01905 556789 to begin the process of unlocking your account. There will be a 24 hour cooling off period at the end of which your account will be unlocked.

  • Your account number/ username and or email address
