What happens if you self exclude yourself from a betting website and then they let you join again and then you lose money?

Hi Johnny & David,

Again, my apologies for the late reply. It may seem a bit slack but we have had a few staff on leave over Christmas.

Great question David. Yes, Johnny, this is very concerning. What were the circumstances of the original banning? For example, was a time period orginally specified. Or, did you join under a different name or address/phone number?

Hope to hear from you & Johnny great to see you here at gambling help online

Warm regards

Angelina

I have banned myself for life on sportsbet because i kept stopping for a month then having big sessions.

I cant log on at home and have made a conscious decision to limit pub visits.

Few beers at home with no temptations is a much better option (in my situation anyway)

The exclusion option is a great option.

Hi Johnny,

One of the problems with gambling websites is that many of them are based in other countries so they only have to conform to the laws of the country they are based. Many countries don't have strict laws around gambling hence excluding yourself from an online website may not be effective.

A better strategy is to install gambling blocking software onto your computer or smart phone. Unfortunately they are not free, but are usually much much more affordable than gambling. You might want to try searching for gambling blocking software on google. Try Gamblock, Net Nanny or Betfilter.


There are many tools available in the fight against gambling. Use them all.
