Krikya is committed to promoting responsible gambling among its customers and raising awareness about problematic gambling behavior, as well as improving prevention, intervention, and treatment measures.
Krikya’s responsible gambling policy outlines its commitment to minimizing the negative effects of problematic gambling and promoting responsible gambling practices.
Krikya supports online gambling as a form of entertainment for adult players by offering a wide range of games and entertainment options. We also take responsibility for our product offering. The goal of Krikya is to provide the safest and most innovative gaming platform for adults worldwide. The products are clear and secure, allowing each user to play within their financial means and receive high-quality service. Integrity, fairness, and reliability are the guiding principles of Krikya’s work. Therefore, it is clear that Krikya should do its best to prevent and reduce addiction problems that may arise from excessive gambling. At the same time, it is important to respect the rights of those who participate in gambling as a reasonable form of entertainment.
Responsible gambling at Krikya is based on three fundamental principles: player safety, game integrity, and protection against gambling addiction. Together with research institutes, associations, and therapy institutions, we work towards creating a responsible, secure, and reliable framework for online gambling.
Player Safety at Krikya-bd.com
We take responsibility for the safety of our players. Player protection is ensured through the prohibition of minors from participating in gambling activities and safeguarding privacy, which involves responsible handling of personal data and payments. The fairness and randomness of the offered products are closely monitored by independent organizations. Marketing communication is also oriented towards player protection.
Protection against Gambling Addiction: Research – Prevention – Intervention
The majority of users engaging in sports betting, casino betting, and other gambling activities do so moderately for entertainment purposes. However, certain habits and behavioral tendencies (such as shopping, exercising, eating, or consuming alcohol) that are considered normal and do not raise concerns can become addictive for some individuals and cause problems. Similarly, sports betting and gambling can lead to issues for a small group of customers.
Customers with gambling addiction are prohibited from continuing to play. Subsequently, customers are provided with contacts for organizations where they can receive professional advice and support.
Self-responsibility is the Most Sustainable Prevention
The basic principle promoted by Krikya is that the final decision and responsibility to play or not, as well as the amount of money that can be spent on gambling, should be assumed by the customer themselves. Personal self-responsibility of the customer is, therefore, the most effective form of protection against addiction. Krikya sees its responsibility in assisting customers by providing transparent products, comprehensive information, and maintaining a clear code of conduct.
Protection of Minors
Krikya does not allow minors (individuals under the age of 18) to participate in gambling and place bets. Therefore, proof of reaching the legal age and confirmation of the date of birth are mandatory requirements during registration. Krikya considers the issue of minors participating in gambling and placing bets as very serious. To provide the best possible protection for minors, we also rely on the support of parents. Please keep your account access data (username and password) in a secure place.
Additionally, we recommend installing filtering software. This software will help you restrict access to internet resources deemed inappropriate for children and adolescents.
Responsibility in the Face of Problems
Krikya offers a variety of games and betting options that are forms of entertainment for the majority of customers. At the same time, the company takes responsibility by providing support and necessary tools to maintain an entertaining and secure environment while considering associated risks.
Customers who have difficulty assessing risks, recognizing their own limits, or those who suffer from gambling addiction are unable to enjoy our product range responsibly and perceive it as a form of entertainment. Krikya takes responsibility for such users by blocking their access to products for their own protection.
Educate Yourself on Key Issues
Most people gamble for enjoyment. Moderate participation in gambling within one’s financial capacity is entirely acceptable. However, for a small percentage of individuals, gambling is not a form of entertainment; it becomes a challenge that must be taken seriously.
What is Problem Gambling Behavior?
Problem gambling behavior is considered such when it interferes with a person’s lifestyle, work, financial situation, or health, both for themselves and their family. Prolonged participation in gambling is contra-indicative as it can lead to negative consequences.
In 1980, pathological gambling addiction was officially recognized and included in the list of psychological disorders in the international classification systems DSM-IV and ICD-10. It is defined as a long-lasting, repetitive, and often amplified inclination for gambling, despite existing negative personal and social circumstances, such as debt, family relationship breakdowns, and professional stagnation.
When Should a Person’s Behavior Be Considered an Addiction?
It should be emphasized that the diagnosis of gambling addiction can only be qualified by experts. The content presented on this webpage will help you assess and define your own gambling behavior.
The particular risk of addictions not associated with any substance is that it is very difficult to define the boundary between pleasure and addiction.
