- Will my banking be handled from the same account as my regular one?

Winnings and losses will be adjusted automatically.
- Are there limits one can set to protect myself from playing to much?
The self-exclusion or time/money-limits settings in any casino are not restricted to a specific section of the casino you are playing. If you set a limit for losses this will automatically apply throughout the whole casino. The same goes for time, deposit, frequency and or wager limits. If you use the self-exclude function for the casino software you will also loose access to the live casino section so be careful. Use the limit-settings wise and if you are not sure how to set them contact the support desk of your (live) casino.
