What are Loss Limits?

Loss Limits allow you to gain more control over your gambling. Loss Limits set a limit on the amount you can lose or transfer for a period of your choice. If you increase the amount or frequency, it will not take effect for 7 days. Decreases take immediate effect.

 

How can I set Loss Limits on Games?

You can set Loss Limits on Paddy Power by following these six simple steps:

Important Notes

  • Loss limits set within games will apply to Games and Mini Games. Games Loss Limits cover net losses (taking winnings into account) over a rolling period.

 

  • Your Games Loss Limits start from the moment they are first set. They run for the time you choose (day, week, month or year) and then they are automatically re-set and begin again.

 

  • If you try to remove or increase your limit, it will only take effect if you confirm this change after 7 days, e.g. £70 (€70) per 7 days is more restrictive than £20 (€20) per day. Any decrease in the limit will be applied immediately.

 

  • Games Loss Limits only cover losses on the Games and Mini Games. However, if you have also set Main Loss Limits then these will also be applied to your Games and Mini Games betting.

Examples


If you set a Loss Limit on Games and Mini Games of £100 (€100) per week around Monday mid-day, your losses will be tracked from that point and you will be prevented from losing more than £100 (€100) on Games and Mini Games until the following Monday. Then the loss limits will be re-set for the following week.

If you set an Arcade loss limit of £500 (€500) per month on the 31st August, your losses will be tracked from that point and you will be prevented from losing more than £500 (€500) on Games and Mini Games until the 30th September, the last day of the following month. Then the loss limits will be re-set for the following month.  

Note: Please be aware that if you apply any safer gambling tool to your Betfair account it will not automatically apply to your Paddy Power account. If you wish to set a safer gambling tool you can do so via your Paddy Power account online or alternatively, Customer Services can set this for you
