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, njdge.org or njportal.com/DGE/selfexclusion.
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.”
