Playing Responsibly

Caesars Interactive Entertainment New Jersey LLC (“us”) is committed to providing a responsible gaming environment. Additional information may be found in our Responsible Gaming Policy.

If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call 1-800-GAMBLER.

We want all of our customers to enjoy real-money gambling as a planned and budgeted entertainment option - like an evening out for dinner, the theater, or a sporting event. But, as with many other things in life, it is possible to get too much of a good thing. Moderation is the key for all who gamble.

  • The decision to gamble is a personal choice. No one should feel pressure to gamble - from others or themselves.
  • Gambling should not be perceived as essential to having a good time.
  • Limits should be set before starting to gamble. Money spent on gambling should be considered the cost of entertainment. People should gamble only with money they can afford to lose. A person who chooses to gamble should set time and monetary limits and adhere to them.
  • There are times when people should not gamble. Certain emotional states can heighten the risks associated with gambling. Avoid gambling when feeling lonely, angry, depressed, stressed, or when coping with the death of a loved one. Similarly, gambling should not be used as a way to solve personal or family problems, or to impress others. Never gamble when it interferes with work or family responsibilities, when in recovery for addictive disorders or dependencies, when the gambling is illegal, or when trying to make up for prior gambling losses.
  • Excessive use of alcohol when gambling can be risky. Irresponsibly using alcohol can affect a person's judgment and interfere with the ability to adhere to predetermined limits.

Keep in mind that you always have someone to talk to. You may seek professional help from the following organizations:
