Bulgaria: More Than 24,000 Self-Exclude in First Year

Bulgaria's National Revenue Agency has revealed that in the first year of operation, the country's self-exclusion registry programme has registered more than 24,000 people.

The self-exclusion registry keeps players from accessing casinos for a period of at least two years and can go for longer periods than that. The country has made it illegal for self-excluded people to work in the casinos or gambling halls in the country, with employers facing a fine of up to BGN20,000 if they breach the rule.

In order to boost the effectiveness of the list, the regulator has worked in a new technology system to allow for faster transmission of data. Only certain employees have access to the exclusion list, but this can be widened by request.
