New Jersey Self Exclusion List Amended To Include Online Betting

The state of New Jersey has updated its self-exclusion list to include online gambling, allowing those who feel that they may have a gambling addiction to restrict access to the sites.

Those who want to include themselves on the self-exclusion list can do so at various offices throughout the Garden State or online. People who have already placed themselves on the land casino self-exclusion program will automatically be rolled over to the online betting self-exclusion list as well.

Additionally, those who sign up for the self-exclusion list are eligible to speak with a problem gambling sponsor through 800gambler.org.

Commenting on the matter, New Jersey Gaming Enforcement Division Director David Rebuck said, "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."
