Almost 2000 people have so far registered with a register that excludes them from online gambling: the Central Register Exclusion Games of Chance (Cruks). Cruks was established on 1 October, simultaneously with the new Act on Remote Gaming. The register was created since the new Act on Remote Gambling.
People who have gambling problems, for example, can register with Cruks. People can register themselves for Cruks, but family and friends can also do it for them. In order to do so, it must be demonstrated that someone has gambling problems. For example, the registrant must be able to prove that he or she is bothered by the other person's gambling behaviour and that other forms of help have already been tried. For example, someone must have already sought help for gambling problems from the Ksa or have considered registering with Cruks. Providers of gambling sites are obliged to use the new register.
