Is there a way to restricting certain providers?

So as the title says, is there away of restricting certain game/software providers?

Atm I play on only two casinos Mr Vegas and SkyBet.
I love the various games on there and do have my favourites but unfortunately when I've got a decent enough balance I tend to go down the rabbit hole and jump on balance killers.

The main culprit is Slingo (Centurion and rainbow riches)

I know I shouldn't and occasionally I do get a big win off them but 9/10 it's kiss goodbye to the balance.

Is there away anyone can think of in excluding these types of games?

I have tried the good old netnanny type apps to block the word Slingo but it blocks the whole site.
Blocking Keywords in a URL works via my Asus router that's VPN configured but as I'm in UK I use my direct ISP or mobile connection to play, which doesn't support this.

Any ideas?

Not sure what they offer, but at All British Casino you can soon block individual games, its an easy drag/drop kind of solution. So you just search for Slingo, select them all and insert a duration you wish to not be able to play this kind of content. Will be live towards the end of the month.

So I've contacted SkyVegas who initially didn't understand and kept trying to direct me to excluding myself and kept asking if I was happy with my gambling (no cos I lose)
But eventually they said they do not have the facility to do such a thing and couldn't understand as to why I would want to!!.
So explained to them how their UK adverts promote being in control of your gambling and that not being able to say block a specific game or a provider like Pragmatic, Slingo etc removes my safer gambling options, thus encourages me to play.
Which they did not like me saying - but agreed it was a good idea, however they've said to raise it as a responsible gambling complaint and raise it with the gambling commission as well. 🤬

I'll try with the developers to finish it towards the end of next week and will ping you when were live.

That would be great.
I'm very surprised that no other casino has ever thought about it before.
They all have the facility to view games by the Provider.

Had a reply from Sky Vegas - although not available it's good to see that they agree and have passed the information on within their company.

At least it's a start.

Were going to deploy the functionality soon, will update here when live.
Looking forward to it.
I mistakenly did revert to Slingo (too much of temptation).
On £2 stake - I had already spent £92 and was left with 2 squares. Cost me a further £184 to clear the board - return was £118 not happy.
But when you say anything they actually state that the win was more than my stake
Meaning last press and not the total staked as shown.
