Italy launched a self-exclusion scheme for players

Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato (AAMS) announced the introduction of program for players who want to exclude themselves from gambling and sports betting. In developing the self-destruction program, AAMS cooperated with the Milan University of Technology and the state financial auditor SOGEI.

Operators and gambling companies must adhere to the request by blocking all access to the player’s account and logging their details with the self-exclusion registry.The registry will allow players to self-exclude for a fixed period or indefinitely, however, for extreme problem gambling cases monitoring bodies can request a full six-month exclusion for most vulnerable users.

The self-exclusion programme will cover all Italian gambling operators and their existing verticals, forming part of the government’s ongoing initiatives to modernise the Italian gambling framework for modern consumers.
