In the UK, PaddyPower bookmaker received the largest number of client requests to limit access to gambling. Almost 200 players demanded the office administration to refuse to provide them with services.
William Hill and Ladbrokes, who received 85 thousand and 53 thousand requests for self exclusion take the second and third places in the list of gambling operators, whose customers realized their problems with gambling.
The increase in the number of requests for self-limiting access to services of gambling companies shows players’ conscious approach to the problem of gambling addiction and the demand for a program of self exclusion.
In the UK, the number of players who imposed self exclusion from gambling has doubled compared to 2014. In 2016, 1.1 million residents of the country blocked access to gambling. This is as many as 330,000 cases more than in 2015.
Recall, PaddyPower advertisement with blind players and Moneysupermarket one with a businessman dancing booty dance received the largest number of spectators’ complaints in 2016.
