Responsible Gambling is the need for a common commitment by the media, online gambling operators, the state and of course the players themselves to take and comply with actions that preserve and promote public health , and especially :
- Inform the player about the risks of gambling
- Reduce the risk of excessive and compulsive behaviour
- Protect vulnerable individuals from excessive gambling, including minors
- Promote the identification of excessive behaviour
- Promote access to care and assistance
Picks Soccer is fully committed to this approach and wishes to draw the attention of its visitors to the real risks of excessive and compulsive behaviour regarding gambling on the internet:

It is estimated that more than 1% of the globe population is affected by problem or pathological gambling.
