The self-exclusion scheme for betting shops in the UK is run by the Multi-Operator Self Exclusion Scheme Ltd, a stand-alone subsidiary of the Senet Group.
The Senet Group is the lead responsibility body for gambling services; setting standards, developing best practice and carrying our responsible marketing campaigns. For more information on Senet Group, visit the website.
Launched in 2016 the MOSES scheme had been nationwide for one year. In addition to recording and notifying operators of registrants and the terms of their self-exclusion the team take reports of breaches by registrants and notifies the operators in question.
Operators, generally, are accountable to the Gambling Commission under the terms of the licence to operate, for their work on self-exclusion. Operators and their trade body invited the Senet group to take the lead role in operating the non-statutory elements of the scheme – capturing the needs of registrants and communicating these to licensed operators for onward distribution to those betting shops listed on an exclusion.
The MOSES team has provided scheme related literature to independent betting shop operators with only one or two shops and had agreed and shared templates for scheme related literature produced and displayed by large operators with numerous shops.
The MOSES scheme is funded by fees payable by each participating operator based on the number of betting shops owned.
