The Danish gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden has reported that as of the end of 2021, 30,451 people were registered with ROFUS, the country’s register of voluntarily excluded players.
The increase from 26,115 registrations at the end of 2020 is in line with previous years. Spillemyndigheden says an average of 4000 people per year have signed up since the self-exclusion scheme was launched in 2012.
The largest proportion of people registered is in the 20-29 age group, which makes up 30% of the total, ahead of the 30-39 age group (28%). Over 60s represent just 8% of those registered, with 6% in the 60-69 age group and 2% aged 70-79.
Three-quarters of those registered were men, although the split was more even in the older age groups. A quarter of all those using the scheme were men aged 20-29, and 22% were men aged 30-39. Some 4% were men aged under 20.
Spillemyndigheden launched a television and social media campaign for the ROFUS self-exclusion scheme in September, informing players about their right to ask operators to let them “take-a-break” and self-exclude from all gambling promotions.
It became a requirement for all licensed operators to refer self-excluded players to the central ROFUS database under reforms to the Danish Gambling Act implemented in 2018.
