Responsible Gaming

At Howzat, we encourage all players to play games responsibly. We operate as a responsible gaming platform that offers fair online games and strives to protect players from any adverse consequences of playing real money games. We closely monitor the activities of our players and alert them if they start developing any form of compulsive behavior. As a responsible gaming service provider, we take various precautionary measures including the following:

  • Restrictions on the opening of accounts by persons who are below 18 years of age.
  • Only players who are 18+ years of age permitted to play real money games on Howzat.
  • A self-assessment questionnaire to identify gaming disorder: Questionnaire link
  • 24X7 monitoring of our games to detect fraudulent behavior.
  • Anti-collusion tracking active throughout each game.
  • Protection of players’ personal information using high-level encryption security software.
  • Flexible features allowing players to limit their cash deposits. Set your own cash deposit limit by clicking Add Cash Limits.
