GAMSTOP, a charity providing self-exclusion tools to restrict online gambling has seen a 25% increase in registrations throughout 2021, compared to 2020 comparatives.40,000 people registered with GAMSTOP’s self-exclusion program so far in 2021, and to date, the total number of registrations stands at 218,000. 70% of the new registrations were men and women made up 30%, with 58% signing up to the 5-year exclusion period.

Younger People Seek Help

An area of concern, GAMSTOP reported an increase in younger people signing up for the charity’s self-exclusion scheme. 41% of registrations were from people between the age of 25-34, increasing to 59% if including the wider age group of 18–34-year-olds.GAMSTOP is used by a wide range of ethnicities, ages, and socio-economic groups throughout the UK. 89% white, 3% Asian, 2% black and 1% mixed-race.Out of 3,300 registrants involved in the survey, 29% lived in households where before tax, their income exceeded £48,000 per year, and households earning £32,000 per year made up 48%. Over 75% involved in the survey conducted by Sonnet, were either in full or part-time employment, with 63% having no dependents.

Raising Awareness

GAMSTOP CEO Fiona Palmer said, “While it’s encouraging to see that consumers are continuing to find GAMSTOP and use it as a crucial safety net in their recovery, this review reinforces the importance of continuing to raise awareness of practical tools that are available to those struggling with gambling-related harm. “Our evaluation results demonstrate that gambling-related harm is an issue that affects people from all walks of life, irrespective of income, location, or gender. It is imperative that we continue to reach people from across the UK, and to give them access to tools that can aid them in their recovery, or form an important preventative measure.”
