Self-exclusion


Contents

Self-exclusion is one of the few restrictions that are carried out by bookmakers not on their own initiative, but on the initiative of a player.

Global practice

In most countries where gambling is regulated or licensed, self-exclusion is a legal requirement. The measure aims to tackle  addiction to gambling and make bookmakers and casinos socially responsible. In Russia, this procedure is not stipulated by law.

The procedure

A player will need to fill in the form for self-exclusion or contact a support team indicating a period of self-exclusion; this could be done for a life-term. You wouldn’t be able to change the self-exclusion period after the procedure is completed.

In some countries, such as Belgium and the Netherlands, close relatives of a punter could claim his ban.

In case of the violation of the ban from a bookmaker, it could be fined or have a license revoked, depending on the jurisdiction.
