Spelpaus.se self-exclusion Platform Gets Over 80,000 Sign-Ups

Sweden’s self-exclusion program Spelpaus has exceeded 80,000 registrations.

According to the country’s national gambling regulator, Spelinspektionen, over 80,000 players have signed up on the platform to exclude themselves from gambling for some time.

Spelpaus was launched three years ago to help consumers take a break off gambling with licensed operators in the country. After signing up, a player will have to serve their full period of suspension before they can place bets again.

The regulator requires licensed operators to integrate with Spelpaus and restrict anyone who has signed up for the scheme from their gambling services. In May 2022, Spelinspektionen updated the self-exclusion site to be more user-friendly and offer easier access to guidance and information on gambling problems.

The updated Spelpaus.se website, which was initially launched on 31 May, also includes an option for players to extend a self-exclusion period.

However, in July, Åland regional-owned gaming operator Ålands Penningautomatförening (Paf) asked the Swedish government to expand the self-exclusion program’s players limits to operators to further reduce cases of gambling problems in the county.

In its gaming policy discussion titled “The industry we love to hate,” the gaming operator also argued that gambling ads should be banned on TV and outdoors, including any sports sponsorship and gaming ads.
