The national online self-exclusion scheme GAMSTOP, is a not for profit organization initially set up by the Remote Gambling Association [RGA] to design, introduce and run a national online self-exclusion system to meet the aims of the gambling commissions licence conditions and codes of practice [LCCP].


You can use the self-exclusion scheme to ban yourself from either your local bookmaker, or all bookmakers in your local area, known as area exclusion, or all bookmakers nationally. Remember this scheme is for land-based gambling only, so it does not extend to online gambling, for which there are other schemes we have highlighted. See below details of self-exclusion for land-based gambling only:
Ultimately the decision to enter gambling premises or open online accounts, where you have self-excluded, is entirely yours, which is why it is so important you are fully committed to change and want to do something about you gambling issues.
