Who or what is GamStop?
The UK Gambling Commission are slowly implementing regulation across all gambling networks across the UK in order to encourage responsible gambling, via GamStop which is operated by a not for profit organisation known as The National Online Self-Exclusion Scheme Limited. The service is designed to help and guide problem gamblers to self exclude from gambling with ease.
Who does GamStop Apply to?
GamStop applies to any individual that is struggling to control their gambling activities which may be spiraling out of control, this also applies to customers that feel as though they are in control however up receiving a promotional message from a gambling brand are likely to take advantage of the bonus offer and gamble.
How can GamStop help you?
GamStop helps you by being your one stop shop to restricting registered operators from contacting you via their marketing activity. This means you’ll be self-excluded to register or play with any operators that have registered with GamStop, including via email, text, phone or postal mail.
How to help your path to recovery?
To kickstart your path to recovery or self-exclusion, you simply have to visit www.gamstop.co.uk and register. You’ll require some form of identification, your date of birth, address and email address (preferably all registered for marketing activity). You cannot sign up to GamStop whilst representing someone else, therefore this should only be done by the applicant.
What happens after you’ve registered with GamStop?
Once you’ve registered and submitted your application to self-exclude via GamStop, you will receive a confirmation email summarising your submission, to which your application will activate within 24 hours.
Once your self-exclusion application has been activated, you will be excluded from all marketing communications as well as playing with any online gambling companies that are registered with GamStop in the United Kingdom.
Exclusion period can range from 6 months to 5 years depending on the options you’ve selected in your application process.
Should you change any details that you submitted during registration, it’s important you notify GamStop in order to ensure the self-exclusion period is fully effective. Do bear in mind applying for certain marketing communications outside gambling could pass on your details to third party companies, which may include the very gambling companies you’ve self-excluded from, therefore please ensure you update GamStop.
Registering with GamStop doesn’t stop you from receiving marketing materials from operators. In order to increase the effectiveness of your self-exclusion, please unsubscribe from all emails and marketing material you receive from operators.
Also self-exclusion doesn’t automatically mean you qualify to with-draw any remaining funds on your account, you will therefore need to contact companies directly in order to discuss the return of any funds that may be sitting within your account.
Delete all apps from your mobile phone, add adblockers to ensure cookies relating to gambling aren’t showing up as ads across sites you visit. Ensure you unfollow and unsubscribe from any social media gambling entities as well as block any sponsored ads seen on social media and selecting relevant options to ensure you no longer see gambling related ads.
