Self-Exclusion Process Rolled Out for New Jersey Online Gamblers

Self-Exclusion Process Rolled Out for New Jersey Online Gamblers In the name of responsible gaming, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) presented a self-exclusion register for online gamblers.

Residents can exclude themselves from New Jersey online gaming services by registering at one of two sites, or

The registration process requires identification with the use of several questions followed by a selection of a 1 or 5 year self-exclusion term.

“The Division of Gaming Enforcement has one of the most comprehensive responsible gaming programs in the country,” said David Rebuck, DGE director. “We strive to be innovative and remain at the forefront of Internet gaming regulation while giving individuals options to play online responsibly, or opt out if that is the right choice for them.”

The introduction of self-exclusion results from the partnership between State of New Jersey and the New Jersey Information Division of NICUSA.

“The Division is very sensitive to the issues of responsible gaming,” Rebuck said. “We understand that while gambling is fun and a form of entertainment for most people, it can result in serious addiction for some individuals.

“The Division is confident that proper technical solutions are in place to allow patrons to engage in Internet gaming responsibly.”
  • This is very useful option. I am not proud to say but I take this option on Bet365. I was playing there a lot and I was playing on virtual sports and I was losing a lot of money and realized that only way to stop playing it is self exclusion. After few months I tried to ask them and play again but I wasn't allowed. So I think that this option should have every casino.
  • Not sure I see your point Jade, I don't see any downside to anybody offering a workable self exclusion policy or system to permit vulnerable players the opportunity to bolster their willpower with a technical solution that can prevent their playing beyond their means. I think the choices of only 1 or 5 year periods is a little restrictive though - I can imagine many players would like the option of something less than a year, and perhaps something inbetween 1 and 5 as well. It must have been simple to offer such flexibility, so I wonder why they chose such restrictive options?
  • When you think that you have seen everything, well......................... I know that this exclusion thing is not exactly new, but I wonder if New Jersey has really thought this thing through. I don't care how innovative and up to date on these type things you think you are, if you are just getting started like New Jersey is doing online and trying to get out of the red in their gambling operations area, why even bring up an exclusion anything. Just let people be the adults they are suppose to be, figure out their own no no's and take action. I love this part, LOL.................... "We strive to be innovative and remain at the forefront of Internet gaming" and so forth........... Come on, you are just a baby in online gaming and babies need to watch and learn from the "BIG BOYS." That, we strive statement is getting a big laugh from the "BIG BOYS." I hope that your exclusion policy does not backfire on you. I also hope that it is more complicated than it sounds to exclude or be excluded. It sounds like someone tossed out this idea and New Jersey just jumped in, without thinking.
