Responsible Gambling: Strategies for Keeping Your Online Casino Experience Positive



Reading Time: 3 minutes


Online gambling has become a ubiquitous activity in European countries, with millions of people enjoying the thrill of playing their favorite casino games from the comfort of their own homes.

According to the Gambling Commission, the online gambling market size reached a staggering £5.3 billion in 2020, which is a testament to the popularity of this pastime.

The allure of online gambling is undeniable, with the convenience of playing from anywhere and at any time being a major draw for players. However, this accessibility can also be a double-edged sword, as it can exacerbate gambling addiction and lead to financial ruin. 

The Gambling Commission estimates that around 0.7% of the adult population in Europe is believed to have a gambling problem, which is equivalent to approximately 340,000 individuals. Additionally, approximately 1.8 million people in the country are considered to be at risk of developing a gambling problem.

The good news is that responsible gambling is possible, and there are strategies that European players can use to keep their online gambling experience positive.

So, whether you’re a seasoned player or just starting, it’s important you know how to gamble responsibly. To help you out, here are some strategies to keep your online gambling experience positive.

Set a Budget and Stick to It

When it comes to online gambling, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the games and forget about the financial consequences. That’s why setting a budget is crucial to ensure that you don’t end up spending more than you can afford.

Before you start playing, take the time to evaluate your finances and decide how much money you can realistically afford to lose. This amount should be set aside specifically for gambling and should not interfere with any of your essential expenses, such as rent or bills.

Take Breaks and Avoid Chasing Losses

It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of online gambling and keep playing even after losing money. This is called chasing losses and it can quickly lead to financial problems. 

To avoid this, it’s important to take regular breaks and step away from the game when you’re feeling frustrated or emotional. Taking breaks can help you regain perspective and avoid making impulsive decisions.

Use Responsible Gambling Tools

  • Most reputable online casinos offer responsible gambling tools to help players manage their gambling activities. These tools include deposit limits, self-exclusion options, and reality checks.

Deposit limits allow players to set the maximum amount they can deposit in a certain period, while self-exclusion options allow players to block access to their accounts for a set period. 

Meanwhile, reality checks are notifications that remind players how long they’ve been playing and how much they’ve spent.

Avoid Alcohol and Drugs While Gambling

Another important strategy for responsible online gambling is to avoid alcohol and drugs while playing. These substances can impair your judgment and lead to poor decision-making, which can result in significant losses.

It’s essential to maintain a clear and focused mind while gambling, as it will help you make rational decisions and avoid impulsive actions. If you feel tempted to consume alcohol or drugs while playing, it’s best to take a break and return to gambling when you’re in a better state of mind.

Seek Help If Necessary

If you or someone you know is struggling with online gambling addiction, it’s important to seek help as soon as possible. There are many resources available, such as Gamblers Anonymous and the National Council on Problem Gambling. 

These organizations offer support groups, counseling services, and other resources to help people overcome addiction and regain control of their lives.


In conclusion, online gambling can offer a thrilling and entertaining experience to players around the world. However, it is crucial to remember that with this activity comes certain risks, including addiction and financial problems.

To sum things up, setting a budget and sticking to it, taking breaks, and using responsible gambling tools are just a few strategies that players can use to ensure they remain in control of their gambling activities.

Remember, online gambling should be a leisure activity that is enjoyed responsibly. By following these strategies and keeping a balanced approach to online gambling, you can enhance your overall gaming experience and make it a positive one.

May lady luck be on your side as you spin those reels, roll those dice, and place those bets! We hope you have a blast exploring the thrilling world of online gambling and that you do so responsibly.

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Leading jockey steps into the role for 2023/24 season

Rhino.Bet, a leading brand within Playbook Engineering’s award-winning platform, has announced that Grade 1 winning jockey Henry Brooke (pictured) has become its horse racing ambassador for the 2023/24 jumps season.

Brooke is one of the north’s leading jockeys, whose career high came in 2019 when he won the Grade 1 Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle on Cornerstone Lad. Other notable successes for the former Conditional Champion include wins in the Rendlesham Hurdle and Eider Chase along with three Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase wins on three different horses for three different trainers.

Despite his share of injuries over the past three seasons, the 31-year-old has continued to make a name for himself as one of the leading jockeys on the Northern Racing circuit and his partnership with Oliver Greenall and Josh Guerriero is propelling him to even greater success. That alliance has included a first win for both parties in France with the talented Gesskille.

“I’m truly excited to be linking up with Rhino Bet,” Brooke said. “It’s putting a huge amount into sponsoring races at Carlisle, Market Rasen, Huntingdon and Nottingham and this ties in nicely with my role as Jockey Club Small Course Ambassador.

“I’m fitter than I’ve ever been as I have ramped up my gym work; cardio, high intensity interval training and strength conditioning topped off with my new ice bath. This training programme is translating into results on the track and I’m sure it will pay off for Rhino.Bet and its investment in me.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Henry Brooke to the Rhino.Bet team,” the Head of Retention for Rhino.Bet, Ceiron Jones, said. “Henry is not only a top jockey but a really nice guy and we’re chuffed he’s chosen to carry the Rhino logo over the jumps this season. We’re continuing to invest in small course sponsorship this season and working with Henry complements that strategy perfectly.”

Being based in Middleham has allowed Brooke to develop working relationships with a number of the North’s leading trainers Brian Ellison and Adrian Keatley. As Rhino.Bet’s racing ambassador, Brooke will be previewing his rides as well as providing punters with unique insight into the life of a jockey as well as carrying the Rhino on his breeches.

Nordcurrent turns players into fashion designers with UGC marketplace



Nordcurrent turns players into fashion designers with UGC marketplace
Reading Time: 2 minutes


Developer and publisher Nordcurrent has released a revolutionary update to its leading mobile fashion game, Pocket Styler, with the launch of a new creator platform, Pocket Styler Studio. The digital platform allows players to work like real-life fashion designers to create clothing, shoes and accessories to their exact specifications. Once finished, digital designers can market their creations under their own ‘designer label’ name and sell them in-game to millions of Pocket Styler’s players in return for in-game currency, which has never been possible in a mobile fashion game before.

The gaming skins market is a multi-billion dollar industry, with almost 50% of players buying skins with in-game currency and around 40% buying skins with real money, according to Newzoo. But, conceptualising, drawing and polishing collections takes time, and even with Nordcurrent artists supplying over 100 items every couple of weeks, Pocket Styler players still had a thirst for more items inspired by current fashion, movies, and celebrity looks, thus limiting the time players were spending in the game and subsequently Nordcurrent’s revenue.

The integration of user-generated content into Pocket Styler has revolutionized the in-game design process. It has provided players with a wider range of options to choose from while also allowing them to earn in-game currency. This feature has also addressed the creative burden faced by game artists and developers who previously struggled to keep up with the demand for fresh content. Designers now upload over 2,000 original items into the game every day, adding nearly 300 times more content than before the launch of Pocket Styler Studio.

Victoria Trofimova, CEO of Nordcurrent, said: “‘With over 100,000 daily active users, Pocket Styler is one of the world’s most popular fashion games, and now one of the most advanced thanks to the introduction of Pocket Styler Studio. It provides a platform for creators to become professional digital fashion designers who can build their brands and promote their designs globally.

“By empowering players and letting them design and sell their clothing, we hope to inspire the next generation of fashion designers while supporting them as active contributors to the game they love, helping us form a community of designers who play a genuine part in making the game even better.“

Pocket Styler Studio has been in beta since February. Currently, over 1,000 designers are creating items for the game, and another 5,000 designers are expected to upload daily in the first year of launch, creating trillions of outfit combinations and millions of new looks submitted weekly. Nordcurrent is also testing the option of designers earning real currency from their designs in the future.

Designs are saved into a designer’s profile until they are ready to be marketed. Once on sale, individual designers can track their brands’ success by ‘Publishing’ items and assessing how many sell. Players can choose a name for their designer label and earn ‘Gems’, the in-game currency, for every item sold to other players. Pocket Styler Studio is available globally; players must have Pocket Styler installed on their phones and have a free Nordcurrent ID to use Pocket Styler Studio, which can be accessed through a browser.

Launched in May 2021, Pocket Styler is based on attending different in-game events, creating looks based on the criteria of the events, submitting those looks, getting scores, and competing with other players to become “trendsetters” and climbing on top of the leaderboard. The game has 21 million downloads, with 100,000 players spending 10,000 hours on the app and giving 10 million votes to outfits daily.
