How does the self-imposed deposit limit feature work?

Limiting the amount you deposit daily, weekly, or monthly lets you enjoy our games responsibly and manage how much money you spend while playing.

How do self-imposed deposit limits work?

The self-imposed deposit limit is accumulative. The limit will consider any transactions you've made in the last 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days (depending on the limit period you choose). For example:

  • For a daily limit: if you deposited $10 in the past 24 hours, you would be $10 into your new limit.
  • For a weekly limit: if you deposited $10 within the last 7 days, you would be $10 into your new limit.
  • For a monthly limit: if you deposited $10 within the last 30 days, you would be $10 into your new limit.

If you're temporarily unable to make a deposit, you've likely reached your limit, and you'll have to wait until the limit resets before making another transaction.

To see the details and the transactions you've made during the last seven days, go to the Cashier and select 'History'.

If you haven't set any self-imposed deposit limits, it's possible that you've reached the maximum deposit limit for the payment method you're trying to use.

How do I increase, lower, or remove the limit?

If you want to increase, lower, or remove a deposit limit, you can do so once the current limit expires. As part of our company policy, daily and weekly limits run for seven days, and monthly limits run for 30 days.

Once this time has passed, follow the paths described above and then enter a new increased or lowered limit amount, or select 'Remove Limit'. It will take 24 hours before your new limit is approved. Lowering the limit will take effect immediately.

When you request to increase or remove a limit, it will remain pending for 24 hours. After that period of time, a pop-up will be displayed when you're login into the account asking you to confirm the request. When you've reaffirms the request, the new limit will be activated on the account.

Can I reverse a deposit limit?

No. When a self-imposed deposit limit is applied, it can't be reversed or canceled until the limitation period has expired. As part of our company policy, daily and weekly limits run for seven days, and monthly limits run for 30 days.

Once this period has passed, you can remove the limit by selecting 'Remove Limit' under the 'Responsible Gaming' section of your account.

What's the difference between a regulatory and a self-imposed deposit limit?

A self-imposed deposit limit is one you apply yourself. The regulatory limit corresponds to the deposit limit requirements that some countries or jurisdictions define. You'll only be able to deposit up to the lowest of the two limits.

What's the difference between a deposit limit and a buy-in limit?

The deposit limit affects how much you can deposit.

The buy-in limit affects your capability to register in tournaments and participate in cash games. Players can use a buy-in limit to set the maximum amount that they can spend weekly at tables. This limit includes all cash game and tournament buy-ins,re-buys, and add-ons. Once you have reached this limit, you will be unable to join any games or register into tournaments even if you have funds available in your account.

Will my deposit limit apply to all my accounts under Flutter Group?
