Australian government launches self-exclusion register, Betstop, to combat gambling harm
Australia introduces BetStop, a self-exclusion register, to empower individuals in controlling their gambling habits by blocking access to licensed online and phone wagering services
The Australian Government has unveiled BetStop, a self-exclusion register designed to assist individuals in managing their gambling habits. Interactive wagering providers will be obligated to promote BetStop through their websites, apps, and marketing materials.
The register allows users to block themselves from all licensed online and phone wagering services, preventing the creation of new accounts and blocking gambling advertisements.
The initiative aims to empower individuals at risk of gambling harm and urges the industry to update systems and processes to safeguard customers and promote the use of BetStop.
