On 2nd September, an article from Out-Law was concerned with a report that the Commission is set to tell all gambling companies to sign up to a tool which enables gamblers to block themselves from accessing all online betting websites with a single click. It is said that the Commission has approved Gamstop, over 18 months after it was first launched, and will require all betting companies to sign up as a condition of operating in the UK. Gamstop was developed by trade body the Remote Gambling Association. Gambling operators have been able to register with the system since December 2017, and it has been available for consumers since early 2018.
