How To Self-Exclude From Nigerian Gambling Operators Without GamStop

As you all know, GamStop is not available in Nigeria or any other country except the United Kingdom. Some of them still want to exclude from online gambling. Without GamStop, the obvious method is not available. But they still can do it. How they can do that? Nigerian gamblers have a few options they need to know about.

Use Specialized Software

Fortunately, there are many GamStop alternatives for Nigerians. You can use Gamban, BetBlocker, NetNanny, and more. All of these are apps. We can call this software as well. You will download the app and install it on your device. Choose how long you want to be unable to gamble, and you are done. The goal here is the same as GamStop. Once activated, the self-exclusion cannot be removed, and there is no way you can do anything about it. The ban will remain active no matter what you are doing.

One thing you need to know is that this software is not free. You will have to pay for it on a monthly basis which is the only downside. If we know that some players with addiction cannot afford these, it can be a hard reason to explain the benefits. 


When it comes to devices, you can use the software on all of them. The software can be installed on Android, Apple devices, computers, and so much more. Some apps will even run on Linux, so you can get a better idea of how effective these are.


There are two ways how this work. Most of the apps will have an online database. There would be all the sites that are reported or inside the database. Some of these have over 15.000 gambling sites. It simply means that all gambling sites inside the database will be banned and you cannot gamble at each one. 


The second method is based on the algorithm. What this means is that the app will analyze the site, and if it determines that the casino is based on gambling, it will be banned completely. As you can assume, there is no way you can lift the ban and continue gambling. Not until the period of ban you have selected expires. Only then you can gamble again. Most of these apps come with additional features such as parental controls and etc.

Online Casino Exclusion

This is another method that has been very common and very easy to use. A player who wants to stop gambling will contact customer support at the online casino where he is gambling. He will ask to activate the self-exclusion. Usually, there are two options. The first one is the ‘’cool off’’ period. It lasts 24 hours, and after that, a player can continue placing bets, playing games and etc.


The second method is more important. A player can ask the casino to put a limit or ban on the account. What this means is that a player will be unable to play games at the casino. This can be active for months or years. 


This is one of the main ways in which casino operators not on GamStop provide self-exclusion services to Nigerian players. However, this is a less effective method. If you are one of such players, you will have to activate this ban on multiple accounts and at multiple casinos. This does take time, but it is free, and there are no complications. 


We must add that a lot of online casinos will support this method. It has been a common alternative. There are no complications. But not all online casinos support the method. As such, if your casino doesn’t offer this method, you will have to look for another one, and you will have to try another one.

Bank Method 

This can be one of the simplest and the most appealing methods for all of you. It is super-easy. All you have to do is to call your bank and ask them to put a ban on the card or bank account. As such, when you want to deposit funds to an online casino your transaction will be declined. No matter what you do, the ban will stay active. Most banks in Nigeria will allow you to do this so there is no need to look hard. Keep in mind that some banks don’t have this option, so you will have to try some other methods from the list below.


Then we can see that this method is more than just effective due to the obvious fact. Even if you use e-wallets or some other payment methods to fund the account, you will use funds from your bank account or a card. This simply means that online gambling will not be available for you for a long time. The method is free and relatively easy to implement. You can call the bank or you can go to the bank and ask them to put the ban.

The Final Word

Although this could boost the Nigerian casino industry and help hundreds (if not thousands) of players to mitigate poor gambling habits, GamStop is still exclusive to the United Kingdom. If you live in Nigeria and you want to distance yourself from online gambling, you have the options listed above. Each one has pros and cons, and each one works well. Of course, GamStop is reserved for UK players, so you cannot use that one. But, you can use one of these, and you can start today.  Choose the method that works best for you and try it. Some of you may want to use multiple methods. Although this is not mandatory, it can work well.
