GMembers (the “Company”), the operator of this online gaming website, https://www.g-members.com (“Website”, inclusive of the mobile application), strives to endorse responsible gaming, and improve the prevention and avoidance of excessive gaming. This Responsible Gaming Policy describes the Company’s commitments, and your responsibility to promote responsible gaming practices and minimize the negative effects of excessive gaming. Games may involve an element of financial risk and may be addictive. Please play responsibly and at your own risk.
If you choose to play on our Website, there are some general guidelines that can help make your playing experience safer, and avoid risk that you may indulge in excessive gaming:
Add money to the Members Wallet only with money that you can afford to spend.
Never add money to the Members Wallet with money that you need for important or essential things such as food, rent, bills, or tuition.
Pre-plan your purchases and the time you will spend playing on the Website and stick to that limit, regardless of your performance.
Don't play when you are upset, tired, or depressed. It is difficult to make good decisions when you are feeling down.
Do not put off personal and other important tasks in order to play. Complete all your important tasks so that you can play with a free and calm mind.
Balance your gameplay duration with other activities. Find other forms of entertainment so playing does not become too big a part of your life.
Do not borrow money in order to make purchases on the Website.
Avoid using all of the monies in the Members Wallet in a single game or session.
Take time outs and breaks regularly.
Only participate in games that are commensurate with your competence level and financial capabilities. Do not get tempted to participate in high stakes tables despite winning consistently.
Any underage player who has provided dishonest or inaccurate information regarding their true age may have all winnings forfeited and could face criminal prosecution.
Every person signing up for a new account must check a box that indicates that they are at least 18 years of age. This notifies everybody that we don’t accept players under 18.
When a player creates an account with us, we allow them an option to provide their name, address, and birth date for maintaining their user profile on the Website.
We never target underage players with our marketing and advertising. It is neither good business nor consistent with our personal and corporate values to attract underage players.

We may notify users in case their accrued spending exceeds a certain limit. Users may be notified when their game sessions are long to take an optional break. And if users’ session exceeds a certain time, the Company may mandate the user to take a non-negotiable break. The user, in this case, may not use the Website.
