Responsible Gambling

Time Out and Self-Exclusion

At Cheeky Bingo, it should always be about the fun and never about chasing the win. That’s why we understand that sometimes a rest is just what you need to keep the good times going and you in control.

To help make sure that you’re in the driver’s seat, we’ve created a few ‘step back’ tools that you can set up fast and easily whenever you believe you need a break.

Time-out or Cool-Off period

Think it’s time to take a break? Cheeky has your back. Set up a Time-Out or Cool-Off Period for anything from a day to six weeks. When the break is over, your account will re-activate instantly for you to enjoy.

Self-exclusion period

A Self-Exclusion Period is an agreement between a player and the Cheeky Bingo team to say that a player won’t gamble or play on our site. We will take reasonable steps to stop a player from re-opening their account or opening a new one. However, it’s also the responsibility of the player in question to not re-activate their account or start a new one during the Self-Exclusion Period.

Self-Exclusion Periods are in place for at least six months and up to five years (extended if the player asks for it to be).

During a Time-Out, Cool-Off or Self-Exclusion Period, you can’t deposit funds or play on our site. Plus, you’re also prevented from Cheeky Bingo commercial communications.

Feel like any of the above safer gambling tools are for you? You can activate a Time-Out, Cool-Off or Self-Exclusion Period today.

Don’t forget that entry to gambling sites can be blocked with Gamban. Parental control software, like Cybersitter and NetNanny, can also be used to ban access to gambling sites.
