Take Control

If you think you are spending too much time or money gambling then asking a gambling provider to exclude you from gambling with them for a while can be a useful way to help you manage your gambling.

This process is called self-exclusion and it lasts a minimum of six months. It is mainly used by people who think they have a problem with gambling and want help to stop.

All licensed gambling venues and on-line gambling businesses operate a self-ex-clusion scheme. It is now possible to self-exclude from more than one place at the same time, making the process of self-exclusion much easier.

Arcades, betting shops, bingo venues and casinos all run multi-operator self-exclusion schemes. You can self-exclude from participating venues by opting-in to each of these schemes.

You are strongly encouraged to exclude from more than one type of gambling and to join as many of these schemes as possible.
