Online gaming is one of the most efficient (and exciting!) ways to relieve stress and keep boredom away when you are at home. Games like online Poker and Rummy provide players unlimited opportunities to compete against players from all across the country.
As you are going to be in contact with people you don’t know in person, it is important to take some safety precautions in order to make your gaming experience joyful and save yourself from data theft and cyber-bullying –
- When you create an online account, make sure to choose a screen name that does not disclose your real name, gender, age, date of birth, etc. Also, don’t use your real picture as your online avatar. Under any circumstances, never share your password with anyone. If you are using a public computer to access the internet, logout every time before leaving the system. When you play games with real money, enter sensitive financial information only through a private network to safeguard your financial details from prying eyes.
- Stay cautious while chatting with other players in the ‘chat-box’. You should NEVER talk about personal stuff with strangers. Keep the discussion focused only on the topics related to the game. If you find your fellow player’s behavior inappropriate in the chat-box, you can ‘report’ or ‘block’ him.
- At real stake tables, play only with that amount of money that you can afford to lose. It is highly recommended to never play at stakes higher than your bankroll (budget). Also never use that money to play games that are required for your day-to-day expenses like electricity bills, credit card payments, insurance premiums, etc.
- Self-regulation and disciplined behavior are the keys to success at the tables. To prevent yourself from the negative effects of overplaying, it is crucial to set limits to the amount of money and time to spend at the tables on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. You need to also decide upon how many money transactions you should do at the gaming platform to play and religiously follow that, regardless of how tempted you feel to invest more money in the game.
- Whenever you feel that your gaming habits are affecting your personal or professional life negatively, take a break from the game. You can self-exclude yourself from playing for a short time to clear your mind. Never play when you are feeling angry, frustrated, or tired in order to ensure paying your full attention in the game.
Players below 18 years of age are not allowed to play real money games online. If any underage player creates an account by providing inaccurate information and the site recognizes the anomaly, it holds the right to forfeit your winnings and block our account.
