It was within the framework of the IAUI that this program was developed and
The Latvian Self-Exclusion Gambling Program is offered to players involved in both online gambling and land-based casino gambling. Players who want to exclude themselves from gambling can apply and register online, or they can do it in person by visiting any of the licensed gambling establishments in Latvia.
The IAUI Statement announcing the launch of the Self-Exclusion Registry says that the purpose of the Self-Sufficiency Denied Registry is to protect the public interest and the right of individuals to refrain from excessive gambling activities, including interactive gambling or participation in interactive lotteries. The exception applies to participation in all established gambling and interactive lotteries.
As the gambling market in Latvia grows, so does the number of people facing gambling problems. Launching a self-exclusion registry is a strategic step in tackling the rise of gambling addiction and protecting vulnerable people. This country also provides free psychological support for problem gamblers. Last November, it was reported that about 127 people gained access to the service in just the first four months of its launch. Also, the Latvian government has initiated a number of measures to address the problems associated with gambling. These measures include stricter rules for gambling operators as well as restrictions on advertising gambling.
