CIE Fined for Soliciting Gamblers on the Self-Exclusion List

Caesars Interactive Entertainment was forced to pay a $15,000 fine to the New Jersey Division of Gaming due to the failings of a third party to adhere to responsible gaming precautions.

In April the third party supplier solicited those that had been added to the company's self-exclusion list. The DGE fined CIE, who paid a similar fine in 2014, for encouraging self-excluded gamblers to register online casino accounts and allowing 5 players to wager. The company is also accused of sending gambling marketing material to over 200 of those on the self-exclusion list.

Caesars spokesman Seth Palansky said: “We self-reported this error to the DGE after we were notified by our third-party provider a lapse in procedure occurred. We regret the error, and apologize to those affected by it. We accept the punishment and will work more diligently to avoid a repeat mistake.”

    These laws are not new and (self exclusion) are everywhere in the world. Well, at least they don't seem to be upset about getting their hands slapped and they do plan to do a better job in the future. Oh well, stuff happens, nobody's perfect. I myself have no problem forgiving and forgetting.
