Self-exclusion is one of the most commonly implemented harm minimisation measures throughout the world.

In this map below, GamblingCompliance provides information on the necessity for operators to provide self-exclusion to their players as per each country legislation. The map focuses on Europe and in two main gambling activities: casino and online gambling. If self-exclusion is a requirement, the map shows whether this measure is introduced at operator level, meaning each operator has its own self-exclusion regime, applicable to this operator’s players only, or a national regime.

National or regional self-excluded registers of players have become more common in the past few years, with some jurisdictions requiring operators to introduce this system, such as the United Kingdom, or maintaining a list of self-excluded players which is organised and maintained by a government body, such as in Denmark, with its online gambling national register, ROFUS.
