The Kahnawake Gaming Commission has announced its self-exclusion stats for 2012, noting that it dealt with 59 applications throughout the year.
All Kahnawake licensed sites provide information for bettors who feel that they are having problems gambling, who are then pushed to the KGC's self exclusion page where they can choose to put gaming limits on themselves. When players submit a self exclusion request, they are contacted by a Compliance Officer who verifies the punters identity and gathers more information on the matter.
Throughout the year the KGC dealt with 59 applications for self exclusions.
Of the applications, the breakdown fell like this:
1 request pertained to an online gambling site not licensed by the Commission.
8 requests for deposit limits were forwarded to the appropriate site and executed by the operator.
4 requests requested account closures and were forwarded to the appropriate site and executed by the operator.
1 request was for an account to be re-opened and was forwarded to the appropriate site and executed by the operator.
12 Comprehensive Self-Exclusion Directives were issued and forwarded to all KGC licensees.
1 request was to revoke a Comprehensive Self-Exclusion which was denied by the Commission.
28 requests are pending due to incomplete information, which the Commission has requested but not yet received from the players.
4 requests for temporary self-exclusion could not be processed as the KGC regulations only make provision for full exclusion.
