LeoVegas to Work With Gamstop

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

Internet casino LeoVegas has announced that they've opted to work with UK responsible gaming group Gamstop and will integrate the self-exclusion service into their system as a result.

Gamstop is a non-profit group that allows players within the UK to register to self-exclude themselves through their website. The service will then distribute the punter's information to UK licensed operators, who then can exclude the players from registering or using the betting accounts. Gamstop is run by the Natiional Online Self-Exclusion Scheme and has logged multiple operating partners in their short time in operation.

Commenting on the agreement on LeoVegas CEO Gustaf Hagman said, "In addition to LeoSafePlay, which is our overarching platform for responsible gaming, we are now taking yet another step to enhance player protection.

"Adding Gamstop shows our high ambitions in responsible gaming."

The move comes shortly after LeoVegas was sanctioned by the UK Gambling Commission for failing to handle self-excluded customers appropriately by not returning funds to more than 11,000 self-excluded punters.
