What is a self exclusion?
On request, we will close your account for a minimum period of 6 months up to 5 years. It will not be possible to gain access to the account for any reason. Any balance on your account(s) will be transferred to your last known payment method, or any other third party payment method which we make available.
How do I set a self exclusion?
You can request to self exclude at any time by contacting our 24/7 Customer Support Team. Please ensure you quote the reference 'self exclusion' in all correspondence to ensure that your account is closed for the correct reason. Emails can take up to 24 hours for a response, so we advise to contact via Free Phone or Live Chat if you wish for this to be actioned immediately.
Alternatively, you can log in to your account and go to My Account > Play Responsibly > Self Exclusion or you can click here. From there you will be able to choose a timescale between 6 months and 5 years, and set it yourself, just the same as if you contact us to do it for you.
If you prefer to email, you can also add a Cool Off to your account to lock yourself out immediately while the self exclusion is added. This can be found by going to Menu > My Account > Play Responsibly or by clicking here.
Can I reopen an account after a self exclusion?
Accounts suspended due to self exclusion cannot be reopened until the time period has expired. After this date, you may request to reopen the account by contacting Customer Support directly with your account details. Your request will then undergo a 24-hour review period and the reactivation will be subject to our approval. You may withdraw your request to reopen your account at any time during this 24-hour review period.
