How can I set a spend/loss limit?

Setting a spend/loss limit is one way to ensure you are playing responsibly.

If you would like to establish a spend/loss limit on your PAiLottery account, you may do so by logging into your account and going to:

My Account > Responsible Gaming > Limits

On this page, scroll to "Spend Limit" and you will see any current limits. To set or change a limit, simply select your new limit from the drop down options, then scroll to the bottom and select "Update Limits". You will receive a confirmation email to confirm your change.

What are spend/loss limits?

A spend/loss limit restricts the amount of your money that can be placed at risk during the prescribed time period.

This does not include any winnings accumulated during the time period, and will not limit the time spent on the site or the number of deposits made during a time period.

Spend/loss limits can be set at a daily, weekly or monthly level.

Daily Limits - Reset daily at 1:00 a.m.

Weekly Limits - Reset each Monday at 1:00 a.m.

Monthly Limits - Reset on the first of each month at 1:00 a.m.

If you wish to change your Responsible Gaming limit you may do so at any time:

  • A more restrictive limit will go into effect immediately.
  • A less restrictive limit will go into effect when the current limit expires.

Responsible Gaming Limit Combinations

Consider setting a combination of various limits to help ensure you are playing responsibly.

Example 1: In addition to setting a daily spend/loss limit, you could set a monthly limit

Example 2: Combine a monthly spending/loss limit with a daily time limit.  

Example 3: Combine a monthly deposit limit, a time limit, and a daily loss limit.
