Self-exclusion policies have been a core part of the UK regulator‘s toolkit in recent years as it allows UK residents to exclude themselves from certain online casinos and bookmakers.

GAMSTOP a one-stop shop

But currently it is a very slow process for players to go through each casino on a one by one basis. That’s were new scheme GAMSTOP comes in.

Created by the Remote Gambling Association, it means that by using a single website players can self-exclude from all operators which hold a gambling license in the UK.

It is also a plus for those holding the licenses as it makes it a lot easier for them to comply with the codes of practice as set out by the UK Gambling Commission. This platform is aiming to be very easy for players to use and everything will be in the one place.

Support and advice also on offer

As well as having the self-exclusion service, this website will also help those with gambling problems to manage their spending and provide support and advice services for any and all who need them.

One of the catalysts for this site was down to the UK Gambling Commission, which is the watchdog for gambling in the UK. It said that more proactive steps were needed to deal with problem gambling in an effective manner.

Players can look forward to these services becoming available to them in December of this year.
