The Remote Gaming Association announced that it is working with GamCare and the Gordon Moody Association to develop a project that would allow problem gamblers to exclude themselves from betting sites.
The project will see GamCare and Gordon Moody workers help their clients who are problem gamblers exclude themselves from online betting sites that belong to the RGA. The goal of the program is to streamline the self-exclusion process, making it easier to remove the temptation for problem gamblers.
Commenting on the project RGA CEO Clive Hawkswood said, "This is an example of how the remote gambling industry takes very seriously its responsibilities to people who experience problems with their gambling."
Gordon Moody Association Director of Therapy Ruth Champion also commented, saying: "To have all this information in one place that is easily accessible, will potentially be so valuable and is a great start to creating an effective preventative measure for people who find themselves in need of help."
