What is GAMSTOP?
GAMSTOP is a national Self-Exclusion tool, if you register and request a Self-Exclusion through them, any accounts in the details you have provided will be excluded from all gambling sites enrolled into the scheme.
How do I sign up to GAMSTOP?
Simply head over to their website here and register your personal details with them.
You can also call them on 0800 138 6518 (8am to midnight, 7 days a week).
Will it close accounts I already have or just new ones?
GAMSTOP will close both old and new accounts.
Does this replace the normal Self-Exclusion option on site?
No, this just excludes from all enrolled operators at once.
How long is the Self-Exclusion for?
The time period is set by you. The options available are periods of 6 months, 1 year, 2 years and 5 years. We can’t see how long you’ve set this for, if unsure, contact GAMSTOP.
Can I reopen an account once it’s Self-Excluded via GAMSTOP?
Accounts suspended due to a GAMSTOP closure cannot be re-opened for any reason until the time period has expired. Upon expiry of the GAMSTOP closure period, you may request to reopen a suspended account by contacting our 24/7 Customer Support Team with the details of the account you wish to re-open.
Any request to reopen an account previously closed due to a GAMSTOP closure will be subject to our approval and a 24-hour review period. You may withdraw your request to reopen your account at any time during the 24-hour review period.
I’m already Self-Excluded, will you pass my details on to GAMSTOP?
No, you must sign up with GAMSTOP yourself.
