GAMBLING SELF-EXCLUSION MEANS YOU CAN ASK A GAMBLING PROVIDER TO EXCLUDE YOU FROM THEIR SERVICES

Gambling Self-Exclusion

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.

Self-exclusion is a great start, but there’s no need to do it all alone. Ara Gambling Service provide free support for those who would like to make further changes to their gambling. Click the button below to get in touch.

The UK’s free National Online self-exclusion scheme includes all online gambling providers. Since March 2020, all companies have been required to join by the Gambling Commission.

This is a free service allowing you to put controls in place to restrict your online gambling activities.

Excluding yourself from specific websites

If using a smartphone, laptop, PC or tablet

In order to exclude yourself from your Operators gambling site, find the web page called “Responsible Gambling”.

An easy way to do this is to simply search for the operator name, followed by the words responsible gambling; e.g. searching on Google for “Paddy Power responsible gambling” will bring up this link https://responsiblegaming.paddypower.com/

From here, you can then exclude yourself from your Paddy Power online account on all your devices.
