At TigerGaming.com, we believe it is our task to support the ideal of responsible online gaming, and we attempt to do so by providing a secure and responsible online gaming environment in compliance with industry’s best practices.
We demonstrate our proactive commitment by equipping our employees with the resources to help themselves and others, and providing information and assistance to our players if they deem it necessary.
We try to offer an environment where our players can use online gaming for the right reasons, - to have fun, and enjoy the games. Our support team tries to keep a watchful eye on all players’ practices to ensure that this environment remains well suited for safe playing. However, we are aware that some individuals may have a problematic approach to gambling. Some may try to gamble while knowing they are under the age limit or some might find that that gambling has assumed too large a role in their life.
Not everyone who gambles encounters gambling problems. For that reason, self assessment on the issue is one of the most important things. Nonetheless, it is not our intention nor in our interest to provide you with our services if you are not in control.
Online Gambling, as any other form of entertainment, is to be used for the purpose of enjoyment and fun; however, you must be on the look out, since it can develop into a habit that is not in your best interest to foster if you have no hold over it.
We would like to provide you with information to help you stay in control and assess your gambling habits. Please remember the following:
- Gambling should be entertaining and not seen as a genuine way of making money.
- Avoid chasing losses.
- Only gamble what you can afford to loose.
- Keep track of the time and amount of money you spend gambling.
- If you need help, please contact us and we will assist you to the best of our ability.

Self assessment test
It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to open an account or place a bet with the Chico Poker Network, and anyone found to have done so will have their winnings forfeited and the account will be closed with immediate effect.
At Chico Poker Network we take our responsibilities in this area very seriously. We carry out stringent age verification checks on all customers who use payment methods available to children and reserve the right to suspend accounts whilst we request documentation, particularly with regards to confirming the age of the player.
Please be advised that if your computer is being used by children, that you keep your account number/username confidential and in a safe place. We also advise you to make use of parental control software, such as NetNanny or alternatively CYBERsitter.
Cooling off period for problem gaming
While most customers are able to enjoy their gambling experience, we recognise that for some customers it can become a problem. For those customers we offer the facility to exclude themselves from betting with us.
We advise customers to make use of our Cooling Off Period, which will be in effect for 6 months. Customers must also be aware that they will not be able to re-open their account for the full 6 month period while making use of this self-exclusive service and that their deposit limit will be set to zero, and cannot be increased for 6 months. Unless you use our self-exclusion facility, a closed account can be re-opened at any time. Please contact customer support and they will be able to assist you at any time.
Players who have acknowledged that their gambling activities have become a problem and who wish to permanently exclude themselves from participating in further gambling activities may do so in two ways:
- By sending a letter directly to TigerGaming in writing. The letter must contain the following information: Full name of the account holder, username/account number, home address as per the account, date of birth, reason for closure and the hand written signature of the account holder.
- A player can do this manually by setting their deposit limits to zero in the cashier on the poker software.
