What is Crown Playsafe?
Safe play occurs in a regulated environment where the potential for harm associated with gambling is minimised and people make informed decisions about their participation in gambling. Crown is committed to providing a safe environment that supports and encourages safer gambling behaviours for our customers. Crown recognises that some of its customers may experience harm through gaming, and we are committed to the promotion of safe play practices and programs and the continued evaluation and implementation of harm minimisation practices to prevent that harm.

What does safe play look like?
Safe play is gambling enjoyed as a form of fun and entertainment.
“Exercising control and informed choice to ensure that gambling is kept within affordable limits of money and time, is enjoyable, in balance with other activities, and avoids gambling related harm.”
Below are some examples of safer play:
- Staying in control of how much time and money you spend by setting limits and sticking to them
- Only gaming with money set aside for entertainment, and that you can afford to lose
- Recognising gaming is a form of entertainment and not a way to make money
- Understanding your chances of winning and acknowledging the “house advantage”
- Not returning to the casino to chase your losses
- When your gaming does not cause you or your loved ones distress
As it is common for a person's relationships with gaming to change, it’s important that individuals regularly check in with themselves to ensure that they are demonstrating the above signs and behaviours throughout their gaming experiences.
What is Gambling harm?
Problem gaming is when a person’s gaming behaviour impacts negatively on their own life, their family, friends or the community. Problem gaming can manifest itself in many ways, and does not have to mean that an individual has lost control completely. Problem gaming can include, but is not limited to, the following:
• Financial problems, including debt, which may be characterised by worry
• Gaming is interfering with personal relationships or responsibilities at work
• Experiencing distress, including mental and emotional health problems
• A sense of loss of control about choosing to game, and feeling overwhelmed
• Feeling guilty, regretful or lying about how much time or money is being spent on gaming
It is often difficult to acknowledge when your own gaming is becoming problematic, which is why it’s important to recognise the warning signs before they progress any further.
"Harm from gambling isn’t just about losing money. Gambling can affect self esteem, relationships, physical and mental health, work performance and social life. It can harm not only the person who gambles, but also family, friends, workplaces and communities."

Know the odds when gaming
When considering a game you wish to play, we encourage you to know the chance of winning so you can make an informed choice. The rules of the games determine the house edge, which is the overall percentage of the monies wagered that the casino can retain. Different house edges apply to each game or wager.

12 Hour Daily & 48 Hour Weekly Visit Policy
12 Hour Daily and 48 Hour Weekly visit policies are in operation at Crown Perth. It is part of our ongoing commitment to safer play, and a way for us to encourage our guests to enjoy their visits responsibly.
Throughout a visit to Crown, we may check in on you from time to time. Breaks in play are encouraged and if your visit spans 12 hours, we will ask you to take a 12 hour break. If your visit spans 48 hours in a week, we will ask you to take a 72 hour (or 3 day) break. One of these friendly conversations to check in is just a simple way for our team to engage with our guests and promote responsible behaviours toward gaming.
