Content Blocking The UK mobile network operators have recently began a policy of blocking certain types of content on their networks in order to prevent anyone under the age of 18 from viewing it. This means that you may be required to “opt in” in order to use certain services, including mobile gambling and mobile betting services.

You’re probably affected by content blocking if you fail to receive an SMS from your gambling provider or can’t access their WAP site. To remedy this you’ll need to verify that you’re over 18 with your network operator by giving them a quick call. We’ve listed contact details for each network operator below for you.
