New Jersey DGE Fines DraftKings Over Self-Exclusion

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has fined sportsbetting group DraftKings $5,000 and required the group to repay $3,277 to players after the operator failed to comply with self-exclusion requests.

There are two offending actions that DraftKings had, where they allowed self-excluded gamblers to bet on sports. Those players had filed for a cooling off period, and DraftKings faulted a software error that showed the cool off period to zero days, which allowed punters on the list to play.

The lapse allowed 54 people to wager, and they ended up losing $3,277.

The DGE fined DraftKings for the maximum $5,000 and ordered restitution to the players. It does look like the company has resolved the issue, and cooled off players won't have access to wagers.
