Gambling Self-Exclusion

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

WHAT IS  SELF EXCLUSION GAMBLING?

Gambling exclusion means you can ask a gambling provider to block yourself from gambling with their services.

All gambling providers in Britain must provide consumers with this option. This allows any customer who has followed the procedure and requested self-exclusion:

  • to be refused service
  • to be prevented from gambling during this time period.

BLOCKING YOURSELF FROM GAMBLING WEBSITES

If using a smartphone, laptop, PC or tablet

In order to exclude yourself from your operators gambling site, find the provider’s “Responsible Gambling” web page.

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: Responsible Gambling

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