If a self-exclusion/self-restriction participant attempts to enter a licensed gambling establishment, the establishment is required to remove the patron when discovered. Incident reports are then sent to the Bureau of Gambling Control (Bureau.) Upon the Bureau’s receipt of the report, a notification is sent to all local area gambling establishments to alert them that a Self-Exclusion/Restriction participant has been seen in a local gambling establishment.
If a Self-Exclusion/Self-Restriction participant has winnings or losses, the licensed gambling establishment is required to confiscate the money and send it to the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, Office of Problem Gambling. If an establishment knowingly allows a Self-Exclusion/Restriction participant to gamble in the establishment, the establishment may receive a letter of warning from the Bureau which may jeopardize their license.
Only one or the other is required. This is done as a way to verify the patron’s identity.
