Sometimes talking with an expert is an important step if you want to make a change
Support your loved ones
Do you know someone who is playing too much? We have some tips that might help you in such a situation.
Talk to someone
Starting a dialogue and actually talking about the problem is an important first step. As a friend or family member you possibly need to talk about the problems yourself because they are affecting you too. If the affected player gets treatment supported by our gaming insurance then a relative can also join the treatment sessions.
Your health is just as important
It’s easy to forget yourself and only focus on the person with the problem. You can support them better if you also make sure that you take care of yourself.
Be a friend, not a bank
Players with gaming problems can come up with the most creative stories about why you should lend them money. As a close friend or relative your job is first and foremost to support your friend emotionally, not financially. So keep careful control of your own finances.

RADAR AND PLAYER SEGMENTS
The tool Radar has been developed to be able to detect potentially risky gambling behavior and to be able to contact players for preventive purposes and thereby promote responsible gambling. With the help of our Radar, players are divided into segments from a risk perspective, so that we can tailor messages depending on the player’s individual gaming behavior. The Radar is constantly being developed to improve the work of intercepting risky behaviors and to improve the preventive messages that are sent out.
With the segmentation, players are classified into different segments based on their game history during the last 90 days. The segmentation is updated every day to be as current as possible. This means that a player can switch between different segments on a daily basis. Paf Multibrand has decided not to send marketing / offers to players who are in a so-called risk segment. Players who have lost more than SEK 20,000 in the last 90 days receive no marketing and no offers.
RISKS WITH MONEY GAMES
The speed of a game is what affects the risk level of the game the most. The shorter the time between effort and result, the greater the risk.
Sound and design
Most games are made up of different combinations and variations of sound effects and visual elements to create excitement and to keep the player’s interest. This is a risk factor as gambling can be too captivating and difficult to tear yourself away from.
The level of bets plays a big role when it comes to gambling problems. Players can seek excitement by continuing to raise their bet level and this can lead to the eventual loss of control.
Chance to win
When a player wins, a sense of reward arises. Several small wins and large chances of winning increase the risk of developing a gambling addiction.
Spending a lot of time can be just as much a risk factor as spending too much money. To play for long periods without interruption is a clear risk and it is easy to play more than planned as the games take turns. Remember that we have various tools to help you keep track of how much time and money you spend on your gaming.
THE SECRET OF WINNING
Ever wondered how it all really works? Why sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t?
Why does my luck change?
Casino games are completely random by design. Each spin or round is totally independent of what went before. So it makes no difference whatsoever what happened before. Chance has no memory. You cannot affect your chances of winning in any possible way.
Random? Independent event? What does that mean?
Inside every slot machine (or similar game) is a random number generator producing millions of numbers every second. Each one of those numbers is independent from each other with an equal chance of being a winning or losing number. What went before or after has no effect on the outcome.
If it’s random, why do I never win?
It can sometimes feel that way. Random number generators are the reason why some people win on their first try, while others can spend a long time playing without winning. There’s no way of influencing the outcome, it’s all about chance and mathematics.
What is the role of skill in gaming?
For games like Sport Betting, Texas Hold’em Poker and Blackjack, your level of skill can influence the outcome of a game. In these types of games, your playing decisions directly influence the result (which is not the case with slot machines). But it doesn’t matter how good you are, you can’t eliminate the house advantage built into the rules of the game. This house advantage means that even the best players will, in all probability, lose over time. In the long run the gaming company usually wins.
