Instructions

Please read before proceeding
  1. Your identifying information will be distributed to all New Jersey Internet gaming permit holders. Your Request Form and the Internet Gaming Self-Exclusion List maintained by the Division are not open to public inspection and every effort will be made to maintain their confidentiality. However, the Division, the casinos and the Internet gaming license permit holders are not liable for any disclosures of any information, other than a willfully unlawful disclosure. Certain limited disclosures by the casinos and Internet gaming license permit holders may inform certain of their agents, including cash advance services and junket representatives, that you are on the Self-Exclusion List for the purposes of denying you gaming-related services. Also, the casinos and Internet gaming license permit holders are permitted, by law, to disclose to affiliate gaming entities in this state or other jurisdictions that you are on the Self-Exclusion List for the limited purpose of the proper administration of responsible gaming programs administered by the affiliated gaming entities.

  2. You should be aware that casino companies might enact responsible gaming programs that are stricter than New Jersey's Self-Exclusion program for both land-based and Internet gaming. By way of example certain Atlantic City casinos may enact a Responsible Gaming Program in which persons signing up for state self-exclusion lists are banned from the organization's properties worldwide for the length of their state self-exclusion terms. Such ban could include its gaming, hotel and entertainment venues. ACCORDINGLY, YOU SHOULD BE AWARE THAT A CASINO MAY, AS A CONSEQUENCE OF YOUR SIGNING UP FOR INTERNET SELF-EXCLUSION, BAN YOU FROM ALL OF ITS LAND BASED PROPERTIES AND FORFEIT ANY REWARDS POINTS YOU MAY HAVE EARNED. The terms and existence of any such responsible gaming program could change, and the Division is not responsible for keeping you informed of such changes.

  3. In accordance with Section 7 of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, disclosure of your social security number to the Division is voluntary. Failure to disclose your social security number is not grounds for denial of your request for self-exclusion. However, a delay may occur in notification to Internet gaming sites for a person who has not supplied a social security number. A failure to supply your social security number may compromise the effectiveness of self-exclusion procedures implemented by Internet gaming sites. The request for your social security number is made pursuant to the Casino Control Act, N.J.S.A. 5:12-1, et seq. Your social security number will be disclosed to the Internet gaming license permit holders for their use in identifying you as a self-excluded person in order to prevent you from gambling, to deny you credit, check cashing and similar privileges, and for forfeiture purposes.

  4. You must choose one of the two following options in connection with the length of time your name must remain on the Self-Exclusion List: one year or five years. If you choose the one year option, or the five years option, you cannot request the removal of your name from the Internet Gaming Self-Exclusion List until one year or five years, respectively, has or have elapsed from the date you submitted your Request Form. Additionally, your name will continue to remain on the Internet Gaming Self-Exclusion List until you request its removal. A request for the removal of your name from the Internet Gaming Self-Exclusion List must be done in person at one of the Division Offices in Atlantic City or Trenton.

  5. It is your responsibility to refrain from gaming activities. The Division, the casinos and the Internet gaming license permit holders, are not liable for any acts or omissions in processing or enforcing your request for self-exclusion, including the failure to withhold your gaming privileges. However, if you are caught gambling on an Internet gaming site, you will be subject to forfeiture of any winnings, including any chips, tokens, or electronic gaming device credits in your possession, and you will be removed from the Internet gaming site. The Division and the casinos also are not liable for any acts or omissions in processing or enforcing any request by you to be removed from the Internet Gaming Self-Exclusion List.

  6. For the complete rules governing the Internet Gaming Self-Exclusion program, see the Casino Control Act at N.J.S.A. 5:12-71.2 and 71.3, as well as the regulations set forth at N.J.A.C. 13:69G-2.1 through 2.5. Copies of these rules are available upon request from Division personnel and are also available on the Division's website at www.nj.gov/oag/ge/index.html. Rules may be changed without prior notice to Self-Exclusion program participants.
