Hello.

Is there a quick way to self-exclude from all MGA licensed casinos? There's GamBlock for UK citizens but is there anything similar for non-UK players? I have used a software block but it's not very convenient.

There is also a problem with these "deposit and play" type of casinos. You are registered only after making your first deposit (via online banking services like Trustly). If you are not registered, you cannot self-exclude. This means that you actually have to deposit (to register) to block yourself from playing there in the future. I asked one casino if it's possible to block myself without registering and the answer was no.

Malta is working on a universal Self-Exclusion scheme but so far it is per casino. I'm afraid you have to use something like NetNanny for now.

Because when you SE at ALL mga casinos you will move to banana licenses where you have no protection at all. Better to find a solution at the source if the problem - where you have funds available to gamble with. Lock that.

Please take some self responsibility for your actions and not blame others.
Wow, could you please elaborate who did I blame here? I'm asking for tools that would help me with my gambling problem and you are telling me to take some responsibility. You seem like that kind of person who tells an addict to "just stop".

Maybe contact your bank and ask if they can deposit all transactions to gaming merchants?
I don't think this is possible. However, I was able to block myself from instant banking services (that offer instant transactions between a casino and a bank).

I mean this with respect
but another step you can take is to ask a moderator here to move you to the quit gambling section; you'll still be able to read any helpful tips but wont have access to threads that otherwise might tempt you to play
