What is self exclusion?

If you think you are spending too much time or money gambling in an arcade, betting shop, bingo venue or casino then ask staff for more information about self-exclusion schemes, or use the links below to join national self-exclusion schemes for each type of gambling.

Self-exclusion means asking a 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 to request self-exclusion to be refused service and prevented from gambling during this time period.

Please then consider also calling the National Gambling Helpline who can offer you free, confidential advice and counselling as our experience is that self-exclusion can be helpful but will be more effective if you also give us a call.
