Responsible Service

The Sebastopol Bowling Club is committed to providing the highest standard of customer care and responsible gambling. The Sebastopol Bowling Club recognises, that whilst the majority of people who choose to gamble do so for enjoyment and entertainment, there are some people for whom this form of entertainment has become a personal and financial problem.

Responsible Service

Whilst an individual’s decision to partake in gaming is a personal choice, it is our responsibility to inform our customers about our gaming facilities and promote the services and support available to them should they seek help for problems associated with gambling.
Gambling may be a problem if you are:

  • Spending more money and time on gambling than intended
  • Hiding your gambling from other people
  • Borrowing money to pay for living expenses e.g. phone bill, groceries, petrol
  • Losing interest in other activities
  • Finding work or your role as a parent is affected
  • Lying about your gambling
  • Not going to work or home as often

Gambling’s not our game
