GAMSTOP: New National Self-Exclusion Scheme for UK OJOers

OJO loves to play fair and he prides himself on being able to provide his OJOers with all the tools and information they need to help them stay in control and play responsibly. This is why he’s so excited about the launch of GAMSTOP, a national online self-exclusion program for UK punters. 

The Best One-Stop UK Self-Exclusion Solution

What’s GAMSTOP, anyway? It’s a free online multi-operator self-exclusion scheme created by the Remote Gambling Association (RGA), the largest online gaming association in the world. It is operated by a not-for-profit organisation called The National Online Self-Exclusion Scheme Limited.

This powerful tool gives UK gamblers the power and convenience to self-exclude themselves simultaneously from all participating online gambling operators licensed by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), through a single request process.

In other words, it’s your best one-stop self-exclusion solution. Instead of having to individually self-exclude yourself from every legitimate remote UK-licensed gambling destination, you can exclude yourself from all of them at once. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

PlayOJO is Proud to be a GAMSTOP Casino

GAMSTOP doesn’t only provide self-exclusion from the casinos where you do have an account, but even from the ones where you don’t. This makes it easier for you to avoid the temptation of signing up at another UK gambling site and prevents you from doing so during your self-exclusion period if you try.

That said, keep in mind that you will be self-excluded from only those UK gambling sites that have registered with GAMSTOP. As such, OJO strongly encourages you to always check that a casino is registered with the program before you sign up. You can easily find out which casinos are participating by checking the list here.

The GAMSTOP National Online Self-Exclusion scheme has been developed in line with the responsible gambling conditions laid out by the UK’s 2014 Gambling Act. After this act came into effect, all online gambling operators seeking to provide services to UK residents required a special operating license from the UKGC.

OJO not only has one of these licenses, he’s also proudly participating in the scheme. You should know that only online gambling operators who participate in the GAMSTOP UK program will be legally able to provide facilities for gambling in the United Kingdom.

You can, of course, always self-exclude directly from PlayOJO via OJO’s Safeguard section in “My Account”. However, if you find that you need to go that one step further and limit your play at other UK online casinos not covered by the same SkillOnNet casino license OJO uses (view here), GAMSTOP makes it quick and easy for you to do this via its site with its single-request functionality.

More than Just Self-Exclusion

In addition to offering British consumers and players the option to register for multi-operator self-exclusion, the GAMSTOP website also offers additional services to help problem gamblers take control of their gambling activity. Sources of support and advice are also available.

Like GAMSTOP OJO also offers sources of support and valuable information via his play responsibly approach. When it comes to fair play and responsible gaming, OJO’s always got your back.

If you have any questions about GAMSTOP or self-exclusion, please don’t hesitate to contact the friendly OJO crew.
