Social Responsibility Commitment
Online gaming is supposed to be a fun and recreational pastime but we at Sportsbook realize that, for some, it can become a problem that adversely affects their lives and the lives of those around them.
While we pride ourselves on offering a service that is accessible to our members wherever they are, unfortunately our service has the potential to be abused. And, like so many other activities, when online gaming becomes compulsive and unmanaged, it becomes a problem.
As such we take very seriously our responsibility to provide a gaming service in a socially responsible way.
Here is how we promote responsible gaming:
Online gaming is a form of adult entertainment and it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to play on Sportsbook. All of our members must be 18 or older and we reserve the right to ask for verification documents from any member and may deactivate any account until such proof is received.
Anyone under the age of 18 that is found to be gaming on Sportsbook will have all winnings forfeited.
To prevent underage access we recommend the Internet's most trusted parental control filtering sites:
It's easy for unmanaged gaming to become problem gaming, which is why we can limit your betting amounts however you wish. We also have the ability to block your access to the site if gaming is a problem.
If you think you have a problem we urge you to take this self-assessment test. The few minutes it takes could be the warning sign you need.
Please click here to email us if you would like to lower your betting limits or close your account. Don't forget to include your customer id (account) number and the action you would like us to take.
If you believe you have a gaming problem there are always people who understand your issue and help is always available. The Nevada Council on Problem Gambling has a 24-hour, toll-free hot-line at 1-800-522-4700. You can also visit the Gamblers Anonymous website here or

These are both non-profit organizations that are in no way affiliated with Sportsbook.
Sportsbook works closely with the Antiguan government and Financial Services Regulatory Commission (FSRC) to ensure that we exceed international standards of best practice in regards to responsible gaming.
In support of this, the Antiguan Online Gaming Association, in conjunction with the FSRC, has established a Gaming Addiction Research and Education Fund' to help educate the public on the risks associated with gaming, increase social awareness, particularly with minors, and provide resources for the treatment of problem gambling.
Sportsbook is united with both the AOGA and FSRC on the utmost importance of these measures.
