Okada Manila aims to delight and excite our guests with memorable, fun, and entertaining gaming experiences through Responsible Gaming. We are committed to the prevention of problem and underage gambling in both our resort and Okada Online Casino.
Problem gambling (or ludomania, but usually referred to as "gambling addiction") is an urge to gamble continuously despite harmful negative consequences or a desire to stop. Problem gambling is often defined by whether harm is experienced by the gambler or others, rather than by the gambler's behavior.
Problem Gambling Signs and Impact
Problems caused by excessive gambling are not only financial, but may also have a negative impact on the individual, their families, and to society at large.
If you answer yes to one or more of the following questions, you may be at risk of developing a gambling problem:
1. Did you borrow money to gamble?
2. Did you gamble or lose more than what you can afford?
3. Are you chasing losses?
4. Are you lying about how money is spent?
5. Are you gambling to forget problems?
6. Are you neglecting your family, your health, or your basic needs for the sake of gambling?
7. Have you considered committing illegal acts to finance your gambling habit?
Okada Online Casino (“OOC”)
OOC refers to the placing of bets through a server-based system anywhere within the Philippines. OOC may be a form of entertainment, but uncontrolled usage of OOC may have a negative influence on the player.
Underage Online Gambling Protection
As we are committed to the prevention of underage gambling, we follow these important guidelines to protect minors when they access OOC devices:
1. Protect devices with a password.
2. Keep OOC username and password private.
• Do not use auto-fill for login details.
• Disable the save password option.
• Log out from the OOC website when gaming session is completed.
3. Install parental control software to prevent access to OOC site.
4. Educate minors on the harmful effects of online gaming.
