A new facility to protect the families of addictive gamblers has been launched

Singapore's two integrated casino-resorts are cooperating with Family Service Centres and the National Problem Gambling Association in the launch of a new exclusion facility designed to protect the dependents of compulsive gamblers, Mediacorp reports this week.

The facility enables families of problem gamblers to have the compulsive gambler barred from entering the casinos, empowering immediate family members such as spouses, children, parents and siblings, including adopted and step relations, to apply for Family Exclusion Orders (FEO), which serve as a social safeguard for problem gamblers and those with financial difficulties.

Minors below 21 and those with physical or mental impairment can also apply for the FEO with an extended family member, or a Minister-appointed person.

Applications must be made in person at the Family Service Centre, and information is also available through the National Problem Gambling Helpline.
