  6. What will happen after I sign up for self-exclusion?
    For land-based casinos, the Division will distribute a photograph and description of you to each casino. The casinos will then remove you from any mailing lists and make notations in their computer files that you are ineligible for any kind of credit or complimentary service.

    For Internet gaming activities, the Division will distribute information filed through your player account or provided on your self-exclusion application for Internet Gaming to each casino licensed Internet gaming permit holder.

    Some casino companies have enacted responsible gaming programs by which they also might exclude you from their properties in other jurisdictions.

If you are caught gambling at a casino or 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 escorted from the gaming floor or removed from the Internet gaming site.

  8. Suspension of Credit Privileges
    If you are not ready to take the step of placing yourself on the self-exclusion list, but do not want to be permitted to gamble on credit, you may voluntarily suspend your credit privileges at all Atlantic City casinos by submitting a written request to the Division.

    You must make such a request in person at the Division's offices at Tennessee Ave. and Boardwalk in Atlantic City or at 140 E. Front Street in Trenton. You have to show some form of identification that either includes a photograph or a physical description.  Once the Division receives such a request, it will add your name to the credit suspension list and notify each of the casinos.
