US Will Get Nationwide Self-Exclusion Program

Later this year a nationwide self-exclusion program will launch in the United States, letting gamblers in one state self-exclude themselves from participating in all states that offer regulated betting services.

The service will be called the National Voluntary Self-Exclusion Program and will be subject to approvals in the different states. NVSEP will work without regard to geographical information, as it is a nationwide service. It will be operated by the technology group idPair and will allow gamblers to opt out of sportsbooks and casinos, with both land-based and online restrictions available.

Although not mentioned, it is likely that lifetime exclusion as well as shorter periods will be available for gamblers to choose from.

Regarding the service, idPair CEO Jonathan Aiwazian said: "The current state programs will coexist with the new option, giving consumers the flexibility to exclude from as many or as few states and products as they choose, including both land-based and online gambling.

"While current self-exclusion protections don't travel, people do, and we look forward to working with more states to use technology to provide a more comprehensive level of protection for those who need it most."
