RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING POLICY
Sporttrade aims to consistently care for our Members and promote responsible gambling practices. For the vast majority of people, the attraction to test one's judgment or luck does not create problems. Gambling generally should be a pleasurable form of entertainment. The aim is to achieve a balanced approach in the provision of wagering services, taking account of the interests of our customers, the community at large and us as the wagering operator. We are committed to sharing responsibility, with governments and communities, for helping problem gamblers to identify their problem and seek assistance. Some of the ways that we do this are:
Requiring our customer experience staff to complete accredited Responsible Gambling courses;
Allowing our Members to set a deposit limit;
Allowing our Members to self-exclude (either temporarily or permanently) from wagering with us. Further information regarding the New Jersey DGE self-exclusion program can be found at: https://www.njoag.gov/about/divisions-and-offices/division-of-gaming-enforcement-home/self-exclusion-program/;
Providing Responsible Gambling information and messages to our Members;
Referring our Members who are at risk of problem gambling to gambling-related support services.
Sporttrade aims to achieve the following outcomes:
Minimizing the extent of gambling related harm to individuals and the broader community;
Enabling Members to make informed decisions about their gambling practices;
Enabling Members adversely affected by gambling to have access to timely and appropriate assistance and information;
Promoting a shared understanding between individuals, communities, the gambling industry and government of responsible gambling practices; and
Ensuring the gambling industry provides safe and supportive environments for the delivery of gambling products and services.
RESPONSIBILITY TO MINORS
As a responsible operator, Sporttrade are committed to maintaining our reputation by actively taking steps to exclude minors from placing an order using our Service. Our services are designed to appeal to, and be used by persons who are at least twenty-one (21) years old. As an additional safeguard, we encourage filtering options to be enabled by parents or guardians to prohibit underage persons from entering online sports betting software, as the minimum legal age to gamble is 21 years. The comprehensive list of filtering options available for download can be accessed through these sites:

"COOL OFF" OR SELF-EXCLUSION
If you feel that you are losing control of your play and would like help in restricting your access to our Service, we offer you the option to take a break or to self-exclude from wagering with us. Take a break options range from 3 days to 365 days. Self-exclusion options range from 1 year to permanent. If you would like to self-exclude, you will need to complete and return our Self-Exclusion Form. If you require assistance, please contact our Customer Experience team via one of the following methods:
Please note: Sporttrade may opt to close your Account permanently rather than self-exclude you.
We also encourage you to consider seeking self-exclusion from any other betting agencies that you may have accounts with. We reserve the right to share self-exclusion lists with the state regulatory body in which your account was registered and/or other gaming providers in that state. For example: if you self-exclude your Sporttrade Account that was registered in New Jersey, you will be self-excluded from all other licensed New Jersey gambling sites. If you self-exclude from another New Jersey licensed gambling site, you will automatically be self-excluded from Sporttrade.
Sporttrade is best enjoyed responsibly. We encourage you to set responsible gambling limits before using our Service. As part of our responsibility towards responsible gambling, Sporttrade has a pre-commitment limit mechanism, which allows you to set (a) the maximum deposit amount that you can deposit with us; (b) the maximum spend amount that you are willing to put at risk with us; and (c) the maximum amount of time (measured hourly from log-in to log off) you can play on the Service. Our (a) deposit and (b) spend limits can be specified on either a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Our (c) time limits can be specified on a daily basis. To set your pre-commitment limit, visit the ‘Customer Protection’ section of our App which can be found under ‘Account’.
Please note that the following minimum waiting periods apply:
For a daily limit increase, the player has to wait until the next day and reconfirm the update before the new limit is enforced.
For a weekly limit increase, the player has to wait until the start of the next week AND reconfirm the update before the new limit is enforced.
For a monthly limit increase, the player has to wait until the start of the next month AND reconfirm the update before the new limit is enforced
