YOU CAN ASK A GAMBLING PROVIDER TO EXCLUDE YOU FROM THEIR SERVICES
Self-exclusion means asking your gambling provider to exclude you from gambling with them for a length of time, usually between six and twelve months but this can be for up to five years for online gambling. All gambling providers in Britain must provide consumers with this option, allowing any customer who has followed the procedure and requested self-exclusion to be refused service and be prevented from gambling during this time period.
The first phase of the UK’s free National Online self-exclusion scheme includes large number of Online providers (but not all) in due course all companies will be required to join by the Gambling Commission.
