The AAMS launched a self-exclusion programme in order to expand its responsibility provisions.
Italy.- Italy’s gambling regulatory body, Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato (AAMS), has launched its consumer self-exclusion programme called “Unique Self Exclusion Registry.”
The program – supported by the state financial auditor SOGEI – is part of the research foundation Digital Gaming Observatory, which is supervised by the Politecnico di Milano (Milan Technology University). The programme allows vulnerable consumers to exclude themselves from gambling services and promotions from any licensed operator.
Under this regime, the operator is forced to immediately close the player’s account and register its details with the self-exclusion registry. This programme allows players to self-exclude for a certain period of time indefinitely.
Furthermore, the self-exclusion programme covers all local gambling operators and their existing verticals. This initiative forms part of the government’s attempts to modernise the gambling framework for modern consumers.
