How self-exclusion programmes and player protection services can help gamblers

Gambling is a regulated activity in the UK because it is addictive. While most consumers gamble for fun every year, for a percentage, it’s a compulsion with wide-ranging adverse outcomes. 

More than just an industry buzzword for the last decade, responsible gambling refers to the ability to set limits and stick to them while monitoring your behaviour and taking preventative or reactive steps to gambling harm should it be highlighted or occur. Even casual gamblers should practise responsible gambling. 

As part of their licensing conditions, all UK-licensed gambling operators have responsibilities to monitor for and protect consumers from gambling harms; it’s also good practice to educate consumers, ensuring awareness of addiction and the responsible gambling tools available to help players manage their gambling.
