customer right or ban foreign online casinos
Customers have the right to ban foreign online casinos. The European system of self-limitation in casinos and betting shops operates since 2009. It became obligatory for gambling establishments in many countries in 2012.
Gamstop was supposed to be a self-restriction system for people who shouldn't gamble. It was useful to both players and casinos. Regulators gained access to the database and started requiring regional licenses for casinos registered in Malta or Curacao. The system is not working as intended. There are problems with it. For example, it is difficult to filter users. Some players are previously involved in account manipulation or deemed to have mental problems.
Customers can choose to ban foreign online casinos. incapacitated citizens, real gamblers, fraudsters and criminals can be banned.
Regulators gained access to Gamstop’s databases. They required gambling halls to comply with GamStop rules and with general legislation in the gambling industry. Casinos registered in Malta or Curacao had to apply for European permits. The main category whose rights Gam stop was supposed to protect was the players. Now the list of bans has expanded into a number of categories. These include citizens who have been put on the exclusion list by an individual gambling hall without an explanation, users who receive social benefits and are deemed ineligible to spend money on entertainment.
GamStop bans users who have been put on the exclusion list by an individual gambling hall without an explanation. Online casinos that do not support the Gamstop system and refuse to obtain local licences are growing. Customers of countries where GamStop self-restriction system has become compulsory have not stopped working with them. It is up to the customer to decide whether to play in a slot machine hall with a UK or Czech license or remain a customer of a casino from the Netherlands or Kazakhstan.
Citizens who have been put on the exclusion list by an individual gambling hall without an explanation or who are requested to be blocked by relatives or colleagues. Players who receive social benefits and are deemed by some services to have no money to spend on entertainment.
The availability of information has made one-day casinos unprofitable. Legal players block illegal casinos. Customers benefit from this trend. Playing in a Curacao-licensed project is safer than in UK- licensed room. Players choose casinos based on specific criteria. The client's right to refuse service of Gamstop is also a client’s right.
