Wagering is prohibited by law for any individual who is under 21 years of age. Barstool Sportsbook and Casino is committed to the prevention of underaged sports betting, gaming or wagering activity of any kind.
It is important to be able to recognize warning signs that your underaged child is potentially gambling. Some of these signs include:
- Skipping or missing family events
- Inability to hold a job, or missing school for unexplained reasons
- Frequently asking to borrow or steals money from family members or friends
- Willing to steal or commit other illegal acts in order to obtain access to money
- Spending a lot of time with friends who are known to gamble
- Gone for unexplained periods of time
- Frequently lying about their financial status, source of funds, or whereabouts
For additional information and resources, please visit the Center for Problem Gambling.
The best way to prevent underaged access to wagering is by restricting access to wagering accounts. It is important to ensure that all accounts have secure passwords, and that they are being updated regularly. Security options, including password changes and enabling multi-factor authentication, are available at all times via Account Settings.
As an added layer of security, content blockers and moderation software, such as parental controls can easily be downloaded. These will block or password protect websites that the user chooses. These content tools can be downloaded via online search.
Underaged Patron Prevention
Barstool Sportsbook and Casino utilizes third-party identification providers to ensure that underaged individuals are not able to make accounts. Identification documents are scanned for validity, as well as to verify the age of the individual attempting to create an account. If the identification documents cannot be verified, a Customer Support or Fraud Agent will be required to manually review the registration attempt. Our agents utilize additional third-party resources to confirm the identity and age of a potential registrant.
No attempted registrants that cannot prove that they are over 21 years old will be granted an account.
Reporting Potential Underage Patrons and Accounts
If you suspect that an underaged person has either created an account, or has accessed your account, contact Customer Support, which is available 24/7 via email or live chat.
