Join the initiative to create the first global online casino self-exclusion scheme
Let’s make online gambling safer, together.
Why the gambling world needs a global self-exclusion scheme At Casino Guru, we think that the currently available responsible gambling tools offered by online casinos do not create an effective barrier between struggling players and opportunities to gamble online. Here are some reasons why:
Present self-exclusion options can be avoided

Casino-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 casinos and ending up playing at objectively worse gambling.

Regulators and operators do not work together on a global level

National schemes do not work together on a global level or let foreign casinos 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.

Our vision

Here is what we envision the future of the gambling world containing a global self-exclusion system could look like.

Easy self-exclusion from all online casinos at once

Players have the option to self-exclude from all online casinos in a simple and quick way, allowing them to stop gambling altogether if they choose to do so.

New industry standard for player protection

Participating in a readily available, global self-exclusion solution is a new industry standard of the protection of vulnerable players.

"Enforced" by reputation

Casinos that do not participate suffer a bad reputation for seemingly not caring about player protection and are considered subpar by players, other operators, regulators, as well as the general public.

Safeguarded by an independent organization

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.

Be part of the solution

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.

If you want to get involved and take part in the discussion, or just to learn more about what we want to achieve, please do reach out to us. Let’s make online gambling safer for everyone, together.
