Responsible Gaming

Red Dragon Poker Room believes that an enjoyable game can only be achieved through ethical and responsible behavior. We aim to offer a true poker experience that is entertaining, fun and exciting while adhering to Responsible Gaming.

Problem gambling is defined as gambling that is disruptive or damaging to you or your family, or interferes with your daily life. It may be evident in one or more of the following behaviors:

  • Being preoccupied with gambling, such as constantly planning gambling activities and how to get more gambling money
  • Needing to gamble with increasing amounts of money to get the same thrill
  • Feeling restless or irritable when you try to cut down on gambling
  • Gambling to escape problems or relieve feelings of helplessness
  • Trying to get back lost money by gambling more
  • Lying to family members or others to hide the extent of your gambling
  • Risking or losing important relationships, a job, or school or work opportunities because of gambling
  • Asking others to bail you out of financial trouble because you gambled money away
