The Remote Gambling Association (RGA) announced that the general British online self-exclusion system for consumers of remote gambling will be called GAMSTOP. The self-exclusion program was approved at the governmental level.

Thanks to the GAMSTOP system, online players can temporarily block their gaming accounts on all gambling sites licensed in the UK at the same time. The self-exclusion function is one of the basic principles of a responsible gaming when the operator allows its client, experiencing difficulties with gambling, to limit access to his own account permanently or temporarily. The new system will save the troubled player from having to log into each of his game accounts for self-exclusion, and at the same time will eliminate unnecessary temptations that may appear during the entrance to the next gambling site.

According to Fiona Palmer, representative of the Remote Gambling Association, now the self-exclusion program is at the final stage of development. In the coming months, the Association will pay special attention to communication technologies. In the future, the program will be launched on a national scale. It will help all players suffering from gambling addiction to overcome this addiction. A full-fledged launch of GAMSTOP will take place at the end of the year.

“We are now going through an interesting stage in the development of the GAMSTOP system. The work on branding is completed, the design process is well developed, and in the coming months we will perform work on integration and ensuring a stable communication system with the licensees of the Gambling Commission of Great Britain. We are confident that we will create a comprehensive system that will help the challenging players to disconnect all their gaming accounts on the websites of all operators of the country. “

On the part of the Gambling Commission of Great Britain, a brief comment was given by Paul Hope: “The possibility of self-exclusion on all sites at the same time is a powerful tool for helping problematic players. We welcome the work of the RGA and look forward to launching the GAMSTOP system. “

The GAMSTOP resource will offer additional opportunities for players to manage their gaming activities effectively and assist in appealing to third-party support services.

Note that according to the British gambling regulator, 813 thousand people used self-exclusion programs during the 12 months preceding March 2016. At the end of the minimum period of suspension, 46 thousand gamblers returned to gambling on the Internet, while more than 58 thousand violated the rules of self-exclusion schemes.
