GAMSTOP Records over 250,000 Sign Ups in Q3 Evaluation
GAMSTOP has announced significant growth in its members base after recording over 250,000 sign-ups since the self-exclusion launch in 2019.
GAMSTOP charity surpassed the 200,000 registration milestone in April and revealed 67,000 sign-ups this year alone, higher than other years’ registration numbers in the three years of its establishment.
The service also recorded its second-highest registration month so far in March, with 70478 sign-ups. According to GAMSTOP’s press release, of the 250,000 people that registered, over 228,000 members are currently using the tool to self-exclude from UK online casinos.
Lauding the ‘significant milestone, Fiona Palmer noted that the company cannot pinpoint a specific reason for the high registration levels recorded this year, although they have developed “the scheme to make it easier to register and have worked hard on raising our profile to make sure we are more visible to those who might need us.”
GAMSTOP is currently partners with services organizations and treatment providers like Citizens Advice, GamCare, the Northern Gambling Clinic, Gordon Moody, and Peer Aid.
Recently, the self-exclusion company has entered a streak of long-term partnerships with several United Kingdom football clubs like Crystal Palace, Brentford, QPR, Middlesbrough, Morecambe FC, and Preston North End’s Foundation.
The independent evaluation which took place during the first three months of this year showed us how effective our consumers felt the scheme had been to their ongoing recovery. This was very reassuring to the GAMSTOP team, the wider stakeholders, and hopefully anyone thinking about registering. We are fully committed to improving the GAMSTOP service to make it even better next year.
