    Hi everyone,

    We are always striving to make Videoslots.com better and more innovative and we have some great news for you guys.

    We have now implemented a new feature under Responsible Gaming where you can control your maximum spin/bet. Should you set a limit of €5 it is simply not possible to make a spin/bet over €5. Should you wish to change or remove the limit, the change is instant. This also applies to gamble feature which some games have. The gamble feature counts as a bet/spin and should you use it to bet more than your limit allows, you will be stopped as well.

    This max bet protection will also protect you from failing a bonus due to a bet/spin bigger than allowed. Basically during bonus mode, you cannot make bets/spins larger than what your bonus allows.

    If you have any feedback we are more than happy to hear it from you guys.

    The best news I've heard in a long time. :thumbsup:

    Can I set as low limit as $1?
    I never bet higher so it will stop me from go over that by mistake.

    What a truly excellent idea! Would you be able to get this facility to automatically apply itself when a bonus is being used with betting restrictions? God knows from reading this forum it's the one feature that would be truly player friendly!

    Hi Captain Chaos,

    Yes, we have already done this. When you are playing with a bonus, this feature is automatically activated to prevent players from placing bets/spins higher than allowed.

    It's a dream for lowrollers like me:notworthy:notworthy:notworthy
    If you can do it then anyone can, and we will not hear anyone losing their entire bankroll on one bet anymore.

    I hope MG are reading this too:rolleyes:

    Bryan! It's just January but this should go in for next years award for the most player friendly award or something :)

    A very good move. Now you only have to change your bonus structure to get me to use the FDB. :D

    Excellent! Idiot-proofing bonuses is something that has been clamoured for on here for a while.
    Just one point you need to clarify - you state 'instantly' as regards changing the limit of say a $5 max bet.
    Usually on RG settings any increase in any limit usually carries a 7-day cooling off period. Is that the case with the max bet?, otherwise it's pointless as the player will change it at will.

    Meaningless? Think that's a tad harsh. I'd have thought the main reason for this would be to prevent accidental bets over the players pre-determined limited rather than as a responsible gaming feature.

    Why would that be needed? The max bet is for your own protection.
    Of course you need to be able to change it when you want to. Otherwise it might stop people from using it in the first place.

    Could you not introduce a cooling off period of say 24 hours, if you decide to increase the per spin limit, rather than it being instant? As this will have more affect IMO.

    Webzcas obviously understands what I was getting at!

    Philip clearly states RESPONSIBLE GAMING SECTION. Having a self-imposed limit which can be changed at will, instantly is not RG! All RG settings have a minimum (if increasing exposure) cooling-off delay of 24hours and (most usually) 7 days.
    :rolleyes:

    P.S. This is a great site, but one which once tried describing a loss-limit as a 'deposit limit' which is a totally different thing.

    I would guess they are putting it there because there are no other place to have it, not because it have anything to do with RG.
    I've never set a limit anywhere before. Here I have a chance to protect myself from the casino, and that's a huge difference to me.
    Not that I would mind a day or 7. I just feel it's pointless :)

    The most important in this is that it is implemented, so I don't want it do be more difficult for either them or us.

    Great idea and wish more casinos would implement it so thanks.

    Cant see why the big deal about having to have it set for a week tho. The idea was to help players not to control the amount they spend . Its a feature so players cant accidentally gamble too much by hitting max bet and if you are playing a bonus with max bet of £6 you can set it to that till completing of wagering. Then once wagering is done you can remove it and bet whatever you want. Having it stuck there for a week will be annoying to players that are winning and want to increase stakes.

    It's a good idea as long as it's implemented well.

    You have answered your own question - 'a chance to protect yourself from the casino' which you could do anyway by reading the T&C's properly and betting accordingly!
    Nearly all cases and PABs regarding over-betting while under WR are due to the player not reading them. In order to prevent this scenario the idiot-proofing needs to be automatic i.e. you take a bonus and the site automatically prevents over-betting. Because unless the player actually reads the terms properly, they won't know what to set the max bet on, will they?

    Therefore, unless Philip informs us that it's automatic, I maintain that it's pointless. If you accidentally hit 'space' on a MG game or the 'max bet' on Netent (probably never or seldom) that's the only time it would be of use as it's described in the OP.

    I can't go over any max bet when I only bet as high as $1 so that wasn't my reason. It was to prevent accidently clicking the max bet button.
    Pauls reasons is good too.

    Sometimes we have to start with small steps and not ask for the world to change immediately. To me this is a small step in the right direction.

    I have just made you 4,000!!!!!

    Yes, it's a small step but to me there's no half-measures - it's either fully automatic or don't bother as you still have to check the terms anyway.
