Can I Get Myself Blocked from an Online Casino?

Being blocked from an online casino happens one of two ways: You are either blocked by the casino and don’t want to be, or blocked by the casino because it was your personal choice. Here are the reasons for both.

Blocked by the Casino

Your account can be blocked at the casino if you are caught doing suspicious activity. For example, if you and a friend have a system worked out where you go into poker rooms until you are sitting across the table from each other, and then communicate about your cards to take the money from the other players, this could get you banned. Other ways include trying to hack into the system in order to cheat a game, or using a preprogrammed algorithm to place tons of bets on sports to even out odds. The more you skirt the cheating line, the higher your likelihood of being banned.

Asked to Be Responsibly Blocked

All of the casinos we recommend are specifically tailored toward the Australian gambler. This means convenience, security and safety, the winningest games, the biggest game selection, great promotions, and having the interests of the players in mind. That last one is particularly important, and it is known in the online casino operator world as the responsible gaming initiative.

Responsible gaming means putting services in place that help players manage their gambling habits in the best way possible. When playing at a casino, whether it be land-based or online, the odds are always in the casino's favor, which means that you have a better chance of losing than you have of winning. With this in mind, you should always play at a casino with the idea that you could lose more often than you win, and lose more than you win.

In order to make losing more than you win not problematic, you have to bet within your budget. Playing at a casino is about relaxing, being entertained, and having fun, not about making money, and this mentality is the most important to have right off the bat. But having that mentality is easier said than done, of course.

If you are not able to set a budget and stick to it, you can request to be blocked from the casino. When you visit the site, a blocked message will pop up and you will not be able to play at that casino. You can be blocked for a limited amount of time, like a month, six months, or even a year, or you can be blocked permanently.
