Sol Mutuel Responsible Gambling Policy
Sol Mutuel is committed to endorsing responsible wagering. Please wager sensibly.
Sol Mutuel is not in business to capitalize on compulsive behavior or underage gaming. In order to encourage responsible gaming, Sol Mutuel is committed to preventing these two common gaming problems.
It is the policy of Sol Mutuel not to take advantage of any customer exhibiting behavior associated with compulsive gaming and not to accept wagers from underage persons. It is also our policy to sensitize our staff to these issues in an effort to promote responsible gaming.
Here are some tips to follow in order to wager responsibly:
- Balance playing the horses with other leisure activities.
- Play the horses for entertainment, not as a way to make money.
- Do not "chase" losses. Accept them as the cost of entertainment.
- Use extra income to wager, not money needed for everyday expenses.
- Set a time limit.
Responsible wagering is what most people practice on a daily basis. For some, however, wagering or gambling becomes a serious problem that they are unable to control. This can lead to a state of compulsive or pathological gambling. Pathological gamblers cannot resist the temptation to gamble; they cannot stop regardless of their jobs, families or anything else.
