Ban yourself


TRO can assist you with this process which can place a ban on you gambling at specific venues for a set period of time.


There are a number of blocking options available via your MyLotto account.


Gamban blocks all gambling apps and websites worldwide, including niche ones like cryptocurrencies and e-sports betting.

If you would like information and advice please contact us at Hawke’s Bay Gambling Services and one of our Counsellors will call you to make a time for you to come into one of our offices.
