Gambling Regulator Discussing Self-Exclusion With UK Banks

As more banks prepare to roll out self-exclusion schemes for transactions linked to gambling, the UK’s top gambling regulator has revealed it has already been in discussions with financial institutions over the potential benefits.

“We have been actively talking to financial institutions about the role they could play to protect customers who are struggling with their gambling,” a Gambling Commission spokesperson told sister publication GamblingCompliance.

The talks have covered “how giving consumers greater control of the way they use financial products could work alongside the existing protections that we require gambling companies to provide”, according to the authority.
