A loss limit allows you to set a limit on how much you can afford to lose over your set period of time. The limit can be set over a period of one day, one week or one month. It is a net loss limit.Profits made during your set period will not count towards your limit amount. If you are profitable during the set period, you are able to use your profits to continue to wager and bet until you reach your loss limit. Unsettled bets count towards the limit. Please check your unsettled bets if you are unable to place bets, as these unsettled bets may be causing you to reach your limit.
A wager limit (or betting limit) allows you to set a limit on how much you can wager over your set period of time. The maximum bet limit can be set over a period of one day, one week or one month. The limit is not a net limit so profits are excluded. This means, if you are profitable during the period these profits are not offset against your maximum bet limit.
To increase or decrease your limits you must remove existing limits and create new limits. Upon removing limits a 24-hour cool off period will commence before you are able to create your new limit.
