Betting and skill games, such as those offered to the public, are a regulated and fair offer for exciting entertainment and leisure. People who play skillgames are normally not considered to be at risk of gambling addiction. Nevertheless, betting and gambling can sometimes become an uncontrollable passion. It is therefore necessary to prevent this happening in time, e.g. by beeing aware of the symptoms in order to preserve the fun of gambling and betting.
Even back in the early days, S&T AG - Division funworld showed responsibility and entertained their players with PHOTO PLAY games, which were – and still are – positive games free of violence, pornography and gambling.
Today, as a member of the FORUM for vending business in Europe, S&T AG - Division funworld is promoting it as their duty to take measures for the prevention of problematic gambling behavior, and supports the responsible use of the game more than ever.
It is definitely no fun if you cannot stop gambling. For those persons who play frequently and for longer periods of time or for those who are using more money than available, gaming and betting can become a serious burden.
