Self-Exclusion Policy

If you have developed a gambling problem and no longer wish to be able to access your Who Knows Wins account, they have a self-exclusion facility available. Self-exclusion means that you will no longer be able to gamble with Who Knows Wins and Compete Pools.

Their self-exclusion facility involves a joint commitment between Who Knows Wins and you. They will take reasonable steps to prevent you re-opening your Account or opening a new Account but you must not attempt to re-open your Account or to try and open new Accounts. They shall not be liable if you circumvent their self-exclusion procedures and continue to use their Services or if you continue to gamble with any third party.

During the period of self-exclusion chosen by you (from 6 months to 5 years) Who Knonws Wins will use reasonable endeavours to prevent you gambling with them, including as applicable closing your account/blocking access to the product/s from which you have chosen to exclude and
attempting to identify any existing or duplicate accounts opened or operated by you. However, you agree that you have an equal obligation not to seek to circumvent your self-exclusion.

To activate the self-exclusion facility, please click on the “Leave Who Knows Wins” option within the Responsible Gambling
section of the App, found in your Account Details section, or contact customer services using the contact information on the bottom of this page.

You accept that Who Knows Wins and GolfNow have no liability to you if you seek to breach your self-exclusion and gamble by opening further accounts or changing your registration details.

At your request, we will as soon as reasonably practicably apply best practices to prevent you from using your Account indefinitely.
To this end, we may retain such personal data as is necessary (and for as long as is necessary which may be indefinitely) to implement the facility as effectively as possible, including for example your name, address, and credit/debit card details.

The Self-Exclusion Process:

Once your self-exclusion has commenced, the decision is irreversible until the end of the period you have chosen. Upon entry into self-exclusion, we will return your remaining account balance. Within two days of your self-exclusion, you will be removed from any direct marketing lists we hold. It is your responsibility to opt out of any marketing communications you may receive from a third party or access via social media.

Once your self-exclusion period has ended and if you wish to reopen your account/obtain access to the product/s from which you self-excluded, you must email us at In the email, please provide your telephone number and a 2-hour time slot for us to call you in between the hours of 8am and 10pm.
