Do all tennis bookmakers work with GamStop?

There are a lot of different bookmakers available in the world and a lot of them are available to people from the United Kingdom. We must add that GamStop is also available for people from the United Kingdom. The real question is does GamStop covers all the tennis bookmakers? The simple answer is below.

What Are Self-Exclusion And GamStop?

GamStop is a platform developed in the United Kingdom that is available in casinos and sports betting sites. The goal here is simple. If you are a tennis fan who is worried about gambling addiction or already shows some signs of it, you can use GamStop. You will create the account and you can choose how long the self-exclusion will last. It can last up to 5 years. Other options you have are 1 year and 6 months. Most players will choose 5 years long self-exclusion. It is the most effective option and something that you may want to consider.

Keep in mind that you cannot remove the ban. There is nothing you can do that will result in this. All you have to do to all you can do is to wait for the self-exclusion to end. Once this is done, you can contact the customer support of GamStop and ask them to remove the ban. This is not immediate. You will have to wait one day and after that, you can continue placing bets on tennis as much as you like. 

GamStop Works With All UKGC Betting Sites

The main thing to know here is that GamStop works with all UKGC sites. These are sites where you can play games and place bets on tennis. There is no need to add that these sites are more than just popular in the United Kingdom and across the world. We can also add that these sites are more than just safe due to the presence of UKGC which is one of the best gambling authorities in the world and one that comes with a lot of respect among bettors and gamblers. 

That being said, sites that do not have UKGC licenses are not going to be blocked. You can still place tennis bets without GamStop on these sites despite the fact you are using the self-exclusion program. Online bookmakers which do not work with GamStop customers are available for a long time. There are many reputable betting sites where you do not need to worry about anything.

Yes, there are a lot of other sites that are available in the United Kingdom where you can place bets on tennis. Some of them have licenses from MGA, Curacao and etc. These sites are not going to be blocked by GamStop either. 

The main thing you need to know here is that GamStop affects only sites for casino games and betting that have UKGC licences. The platform is not available on other casinos and bookmakers despite the fact they have other licences obtained from other gambling authorities. 

An interesting fact here is that there are some details that can change this. We believe and there are some reports that GamStop will soon start working with betting sites that have licenses obtained from other gambling authorities. What this means is that in the near future once you have created an account at GamStop, it will block sports betting sites that have an MGA license. This is another gambling authority that is more than just popular and more than just known. 

Is GamStop Available Across The World?

Now you may believe that GamStop is available across the world. UKGC sites usually have other licences as well and they accept bettors from most parts of the globe. This is not true. GamStop is available for UK bettors only. In simple terms, if you live in the United Kingdom, you can use GamStop. If you live in another country, you cannot use GamStop, not even for the sports betting site where the UKGC license is present.

Once again, we can see that this may change any time soon. There are some speculations that a lot of other sports betting sites want to adopt GamStop and want to make it available in other countries. This will probably become true and something that will happen soon. But, at the moment this is not possible. Keep in mind that there are a lot of rules, laws and so much more that GamStop must meet in order to become available in another country. 

We would like to see this happening any time soon. It would have huge benefits for players and a lot more bettors who enjoy tennis would be secure and will be able to use GamStop on a daily basis if needed. 

The Final Word

The main thing you need to remember here is that GamStop is available on all sports betting sites and on all gaming sites that have UKGC licences. It doesn’t work on sites that don’t have this licence and it is unavailable for bettors outside the United Kingdom. In plain words, if you are from the United Kingdom and you need help with gambling addiction, using GamStop is more than just possible. It will cover all the sites.
