Operator-level and nation-wide self-exclusion do not create an effective barrier that stops problem gamblers from playing. Players can avoid them by gambling at other sites, or even opting for unlicensed operators and ending up playing at objectively worse gambling websites.
National schemes do not work together on a global level or let foreign operators take part. Even if they wanted to, the rigid rules individual entities have to follow do not allow them to team up to better protect players.
Here is what we envision the future of the gambling world containing a Global Self-Exclusion System (GSES) could look like.
Players have the option to self-exclude from all online operators in a simple and quick way, allowing them to stop gambling altogether if they choose to do so.
Participating in a readily available, global self-exclusion solution is a new industry standard of the protection of vulnerable players. Operators that do not participate suffer a bad reputation.
Self-exclusion by itself is rarely sufficient to overcome problem gambling habits of players who self-excluded to battle their addiction. That’s why we cooperate with professionals who offer continuous to problem gamblers.
The global self-exclusion system is governed and looked after an independent organization, to make sure it remains impartial and unaffected by the agenda of any individual party.

We will definitely not be able to achieve all of this alone. We hope to capture the attention of operators, regulators, and other involved parties, and get things moving towards a common goal of reducing the negative effects of gambling on people’s lives.
