How can I set a time limit to my play?

Setting a time limit is one way to ensure you are playing responsibly.

To set a time limit for play, log in and go to:

My Account > Responsible Gaming > Limits

On that page, scroll to "Time Limit" and you will see any current limits. To make a change, simply select your new limit from the options, then scroll to the bottom and select "Update Limits". You will receive a confirmation email to confirm your change.

Responsible Gaming Time Limits

Each of the following 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 time 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.

What does a time limit do?

Time Limit - Will limit the amount of time you may play on PAiLottery.com during the prescribed period. 

  • Example: If you set a monthly limit for time of X hours, once your total monthly session time hits that many hours you will no longer be able to play for money. Your time will reset at 1:00 a.m. on the first of the following month. It is important to note that this counts session time, not necessarily the time spent actively playing games on PAiLottery.com.

  • Note: Time limits do not limit the amount you deposit or risk during the time.

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.

Please play responsibly, if you or someone you know may have a gambling problem, help is available. Call the PROBLEM GAMBLING HELPLINE: 1-800-GAMBLER.
