SciPlay encourages all players to engage in responsible gameplay. Gameplay is responsible when players:
- have a fun and entertaining experience.
- can control the amount of time they spend playing the game, their spending, and any purchases made in the games.
- strike an appropriate balance between playing games and other activities of life, including personal and family responsibilities and other leisure activities.
While most people have a fun, rewarding and relaxing experience playing video games, other players struggle with controlling their game play or purchases made during game play. These players may be at risk of developing a video game behavior disorder. If you believe that you or a family member displays any of the following behaviors, you or your family member may have, or may be at risk of developing, a video game behavior disorder:
- You have difficulty controlling the time spent playing video games.
- You have difficulty properly prioritizing playing video games with other activities.
- You demonstrate an interest in video games that detrimentally interferes with other life activities, responsibilities or obligations.
- You escalate game play or spending on video games despite increasing negative consequences caused by such action.
It is important to note that for a video game behavior disorder to be diagnosed, the behavior pattern must be of sufficient severity while resulting in significant impairment of personal, family, social, educational, occupational, or other important areas of functioning, and should normally have been evidenced for at least 12 months.
If any of the above behaviors apply to you, you may want to consider performing some research on the issue, and, if necessary, seeking help from a qualified medical professional.
