Our app offers slots which you can play using virtual currency („Credits“) as a wager. Frequent gaming – even with virtual currency – can lead to problematic gaming or the development of a gaming addiction. Being aware of the symptoms is vital in addressing a suspected gaming addiction.
With this simple self-test, you can find out whether or not you have a gaming problem:
- Are you leaving your family alone for long periods of time in order to take part in games?
- Are you spending more time gaming than you had planned or intended to, ignoring other duties and responsibilities?
- Are you arguing frequently with your partner about spending too much time and money on gaming? Do you find that you cannot stop or limit yourself?
- Are you buying packs with family money needed for rent/mortgage, schooling, medical needs, groceries, clothes or heating?
- Do you feel you have to take part in games to get to spend time with people you understand?
- When you are with your family, at work or at social events, are you constantly thinking about your next game?
- Do you find yourself trying to take part in gaming during office hours even if it could cost you your job?
- If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, we suggest that you take action immediately BEFORE it becomes a serious problem.
