    Apparently you cannot set gaming limits when playing at the casino. You can deposit as much as you like from your card, and they can even loan you money with a credit limit! When telephoning their support, they confirmed it is not possible as they are a spread bet company not a casino. :rolleyes:

    Aside from the fact they have a 60 times rollover on the 100% welcome bonus, I certainly won't be promoting them until they put some responsible gaming in place for casino or sportsbook players.

    I think there's different rules, as A, spread betting can be done on credit, and B, it's impossible for them to constantly calculate your present exposure. If I was pricing something that would expose me for say £250 to the market I could not then set a limit of £200 as my bettors wouldn't get paid in full. If I put a limit on it as above it would be a bit like the casino saying they will only pay me 2000x for 5 scatters on DoA instead of 2500x because they have a limit in place.

    Their problem is not separating the casino/spread sides. If they did the UKGC would then make that limit apply to their site overall, thus interfering with spread exposures. You'll find this is a loophole and grey area.
