Responsible Gambling Policy
The main goals of mimy's activities are to support and encourage responsible gambling, as well as to stimulate the practice of responsible gambling
We are aimed at informing users about all the nuances of placing bets, including informing them about potential risks. The organization of the gambling process must be approached responsibly, otherwise, interesting leisure can cause serious financial losses, debts, and gambling addiction. It is necessary to place bets wisely, and if signs of gambling addiction appear, immediately contact specialists for professional help.
Key Rules of Responsible Gaming
mimy adheres to the principles of responsible gambling and promotes this approach not only within the company – mimy is also part of all associations in the sector. mimy stands against illegal gambling and those who violate the rules of responsible gambling.
A reasonable approach to gambling involves:
- Realization that gambling is just entertainment, not a tool to earn money or a way to relieve stress.
- Ability to spend the amount that is available. The main mistake of most players is the use of borrowed funds without any guarantees that they will be able to give money back.
- Using only “free money” – those that remain after meeting basic daily needs: paying utilities, buying food, transportation costs, etc.
- Not trying to recoup.
- Independence in decision making. The desire to place a bet should not be imposed.
No matter which interactive bets operator the player chooses, at the registration stage he/she will be asked about reaching the age of majority. Most countries’ legislation allows only people over 18 years of age to place bets. It is considered that at this age a person is already able to assess the consequences of his/her actions, and he/she can independently decide how to manage his/her finances. In some cases, the legal age may differ, for example, in some states of the USA, it is only allowed to place bets from the age of 21.
To eliminate the risk of providing services to minors, mimy uses sophisticated verification systems.
If you have children, and you are registered on the mimy’s website, you need to take certain precautions to prevent them from using your account:
Ways to Overcome Gambling Addiction
To prevent betting from causing significant financial losses, problems at work, and conflicts at home, you should adhere to the following recommendations:

- Play dosed, that is, not every day and with a limited time for betting.
- Monitor the account. Each player needs to check the amount of money lost and won – this will show you if your gambling is successful and will help not spend too much. The best option is to make a profit and loss chart. You can make a profit and loss chart.
- Use time-out or self-exclusion options – they will help you to take a break from gambling for some time.
- Share your concerns with your family and friends to help cope with the gambling cravings.
- Find other hobbies not related to the world of gambling.
- Engage in introspection to figure out why you are gambling, how much you need it, what will happen if you completely abandon gambling.
You can independently control how much money you use for betting on mimy’s sites. To do this, set a deposit limit – this can be done at any time online, as well as by calling or emailing our support team.
You can set daily, weekly, or monthly betting limits. The betting limit determines the total amount that a player can spend on bets over a certain period.
In case of increasing the deposit limit, you will need to wait no less than the period of the deposit limit you have chosen. If the limit is reduced, all changes will take effect immediately.
