Colorado Introduces Self-Exclusion Program

Last week Colorado's Division of Gaming announced that they've launched a self-exclusion program for gamblers in the state that'll help those with a need to avoid gambling altogether.

The program will allow for gamblers to exclude from online sportsbetting, retail sportsbetting, or from the state's various casinos. Time periods for voluntary self-exclusion include 1-year, 3-years, or 5-years. Player names will go into a database that'll be screened by the casinos throughout the state in order to keep excluded gamblers from participating.

Regarding the launch, Colorado Division of Gaming Director Christopher Schroder said, "The Division of Gaming is committed to promoting responsible gaming in the Colorado gaming industry, and the launch of the state's self-exclusion program is an exciting advancement for our state. We appreciate all of the work that the PGCC has done to get the self-exclusion program to this point. They are an excellent partner in this important work."

News of the exclusion list comes after the state reported an 8.9% increase in sportsbetting handle for July, as gamblers bet $281.1 million during the month. Sportsbetting gross gaming revenues are at $25 million, up 20.2% from last year, with online books generating $24.8 million of that total.
