Self-Exclusion Day 1 A

You can self-exclude from all types of gambling, either in a physical venue or online.

This means you ask the gambling operator to stop you from gambling with them, usually between six months and five years.

Depending on your gambling situation and where in the world you’re living, day one is for you to decide one or more of the following:

Multi Operator Self Exclusion Scheme (MOSES)

For betting shops in Great Britain

All licensed gambling businesses have to have their own self-exclusion arrangements to help those who decide to self-exclude. They all also have to sign up to “multi-operator” schemes that allow the public to self-exclude centrally with more than one operator.

The MOSES scheme allows people to self-exclude from betting shops, generally ones close to their homes, place of work or where they socialise. Betting shops are open to all adults so the scheme is based on people submitting photos that can be shared with operators to help staff recognise someone who has self-excluded and intervene if he or she breaches that undertaking.

In addition to registering a person’s initial wish to self-exclude they can add premises to an existing self-exclusion, they can renew a self-exclusion when it has been in place for a year and can record any notifications of a wish to return to gambling after the year of self-exclusion has expired.

SENSE is the voluntary Self-Enrolment National Self-Exclusion scheme launched in August 2015. It allows people who believe they have a problem with their gambling to enrol voluntarily in a scheme to exclude themselves nationally from all land-based casinos in the UK. The aim was to provide a scheme which would allow customers to self-exclude in a simple, transparent way. Under the SENSE scheme, customers wishing to self-exclude can do so from any UK land-based casino. Once a customer has asked to be excluded through the SENSE scheme the customer’s information is shared with all casinos across the country and their details will be removed from all land-based casino marketing databases.
