Side Hustles

How to Play Gambling Games Safely

I don’t know if my intense competitive side or what, but I LOVE playing games of all kinds. In my world, winter means spending more time inside and that means I have more time for playing games. My family often plays card games, board games, and even video games when we get together. But I also love to play games solo too.

Recently I discovered Slotomania, the slot machine-like gaming app that lets you redeem your in-game points for real world rewards. Now that’s what I’m talking about! What better way to get real rewards than by playing games.

What I love about the Slotomania app is that it can be played during any time interval that you have available. Lots of us have short periods of down time throughout our day-to-day schedules, but that down time is rarely long enough for us to get much of anything productive accomplished. Now with the Slotomania app, I can use my downtime to play games and build up my rewards.

Now you should be aware that Slotomania is a gambling game and you can become addicted to gambling if you aren’t careful with your gambling practices. Here are just a few safety things to keep in mind you are involved in online gambling or using gambling apps and games.

Set Limits

Lots of sources dedicated to helping people avoid developing a gambling addiction suggest setting limits. You should consider setting limits on how much time you spend gambling and also how much money you spend gambling. If you have trouble staying accountable to yourself and the limits you’ve imposed, recruit a friend or family member to help you stay on track with your limits.

Gamble Appropriately

While you can win real rewards by gambling, gambling is not a sure thing and should never be done when you are desperate for money. Only gamble with money you are comfortable losing. Quitting while you are ahead is also a good policy when gambling. If you are one of the lucky ones who wins big while gambling, don’t lose it all back into the game. The best way to gamble is to take your winnings and run and never chase your losses.

Never Borrow to Play

As a personal finance blogger, I have to warn you to be smart with your gambling money. Don’t gamble if you truly can’t afford to. This means you should never borrow money to gamble, or charge your gambling to you credit card.

With these tips in mind, Slotomania is a great app to use to have some fun and possibly gain some rewards.
