Here at footballpools.com, we believe that everyone should get enjoyment and excitement from playing our games. However, we appreciate that gaming and gambling may go beyond enjoyment for a small amount of people and become a habit that could cause problems for the individual and those around them. As such, we recognise it is our responsibility to ensure that a responsible attitude towards gaming and gambling is taken and we have a number of systems and processes in place to best avoid problems occurring. Please read on to understand how footballpools.com are working to ensure responsible gaming.
