Bulgaria Will Keep Self-Excluded From Working in Casinos

This week Bulgaria's National Revenue Agency announced that they've issued an order to keep casino operators in the country from employing people on the national self-exclusion list from working within casinos or gambling halls.

The mandate would see gaming operators being fined up to BGN20,000 if they skirt the rule. Players on self-exclusion lists will not be able to enter casinos or gambling halls for any purpose, including work. The move was made after there were legal questions as to whether or not self-excluded people could indeed work at such sites.

Bulgaria has previously banned people under 18, those bearing arms, those under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and those wearing uniforms from entering gambling sites.

The country currently has a self-exclusion list that can see players exclude for periods ranging between two years and for life. The list was implemented before going on hiatus, which came back in December of last year. Since that date, there have been 7,200 people registered.
