Since March 2020, all British online operators must be integrated with Gamstop as a condition of their Gambling Commission licence. Consumers who register with Gamstop can choose to exclude themselves from every gambling site for a minimum period of six months, one year or five years. They cannot then remove themselves from the scheme until their self-exclusion period has expired, and if they do not contact Gamstop, their registration is automatically rolled over for up to seven years.
