MCCARTIN’S HOTEL COMMITMENT TO RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING
The McCartins Hotel is committed to providing the highest standards of customer care and responsible gambling. Our Responsible Gambling Code of Conduct describes how we do this.
Responsible gambling in a regulated environment is when consumers have informed choices and can exercise a rational and sensible choice based on their circumstances. It means a shared responsibility with collective action by the gambling industry, government, individuals and communities.
Gambling may be a problem if you are:
Spending more money and time on gambling than intended
Hiding your gambling from other people
Borrowing money to pay for living expenses e.g. phone bill, groceries, petrol
Losing interest in other activities
Finding work or your role as a parent is affected
Lying about your gambling
Not going to work or home as often
