Deposit Limits

Deposit limits allow you to limit the amount of money you can deposit into your account. The amount can be chosen over a daily, weekly or monthly period. The deposit limit will allow you to restrict the amount of money entering your account, before you gamble.

How do I set deposit limits?

If you have an account you can set or manage your deposit limits by logging into your Betfair account and going into the ‘My Account’ section. From here you can click on ‘Player Protection’ then ‘Overall Limits’ and ‘Deposit Limits’.

Alternatively our Customer Service Team receive responsible gambling training and you can contact them to discuss the options available. Our Customer Service Team can set a deposit limit for you at your request. See the ‘Contact Us’ section for all Customer Service contact information.

Loss Limits

Betfair offers a selection of products such as Sports betting, Poker, Bingo, Casino, Virtual Sports, Exchange Games, Arcade and Vegas Slots, and we recognise that you may wish to limit your betting differently across these types of product. Therefore we offer you the option to set Loss limits for individual product or a global loss limit covering all products except Poker and Exchange Games.

Loss limits allow you to limit the amount of money you can lose over a given period. For the Global loss limit and the Product loss limit you can choose to set it over a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly period.

Product specific loss limit – Will apply solely to betting on the product for which it has been set. Setting a Casino limit of £100 Per Week will allow you to lose only £100 in a week for Casino, but you are able to continue betting on other products such as Sports betting. Product specific loss limits are available for Arcade and Vegas Slots, Bingo Virtual Sports and Casino.

Global loss limit – Will take into account losses across Bingo, Arcade and Vegas Slots, Casino, Virtual Sports and Sports products. A global loss limit of £100 Per Week will allow you to lose a combined total of £100 across these products. Poker and Exchange Games do not currently have loss limits options so are not included in this global limit. But you can limit the amount of money you can transfer in order to play these games (see below for more information). If you wish to limit your sports betting you will need to set a global limit.
