New York Launches Self-Exclusion Program

Today the state of New York saw the launch of a new voluntary self-exclusion program to help people separate themselves from gambling.

The program was launched by the New York State Responsible Play Partnership (RPP), and registered players will be barred access from both in-person and online betting across the Empire State.

The self-exclusion scheme is being supported by the New York Council on Problem Gambling, whose staff will help players locate and use the registry. Additional gambling-related support can also be provided by the group, including counseling and recovery services.

Commenting on the launch of the program, New York Council on Problem Gambling Executive Director James Maney said, "Assisting those in need of help through providing care and concern is at the core of what NYCPG does. The launch of this new program exemplifies that care and concern by breaking down barriers.

"The new online notary services make it easier for individuals to complete remote VSE… while also connecting to one of our caring staff members who are knowledgeable about the process."
