New Jersey’s online gambling self-exclusion list now available

New Jersey has a gambling self-exclusion list for its land-based casinos in Atlantic City and has now also extended the list availability to players of online gambling companies. The system has been put in place barely two weeks before the official launch of online gaming and poker in the state and due to growing concerns by groups regarding problem gambling.

New Jersey’s Gaming Enforcement Division has a very simple self-exclusion system available for its residents to opt themselves out from the 12 Atlantic City casinos operating currently in the state and people who have already done so will automatically also be excluded from online casinos and poker rooms. People who are not on the self-exclusion list can do so now and apply for the online self-exclusion which will begin alongside the launch of online gaming at the end of the month.

According to David Rebuck, New Jersey’s Gaming Enforcement Division director, “Expanding the division’s self-exclusion program to include Internet gaming and making the application process available to the public prior to Internet gaming’s go-live date of November 26, 2013, represents a commitment I made following the signing of the Internet gaming bill. The division is committed to promoting responsible gaming not only in Atlantic City’s casinos, but also on the Internet.”

People have the choice to block themselves for one or five year periods, during which times they will not be allowed to enter any casinos or play online for real money. People who do manage to circumvent this measure will lose any winnings they might have earned while playing.
