In accordance with regulations, the Bureau administers a confidential list of Self-Excluded patrons. Self-Excluded patrons are banned from all licensed gambling establishments in the State of California. A licensed gambling establishment does not include Tribal Casino’s. Self-Excluded patrons are prohibited from collecting any winnings or recovering any losses for the term specified on their form, which can be 1 year, 5 years, or lifetime. All Self-Exclusion terms are irrevocable.
Also in accordance with regulations, Licensees are required to administer a Self-Restriction Program. Self-Restriction is an irrevocable, voluntary agreement to have restricted access to specific gambling establishments, or to the issuance of credit, check cashing, or marketing, from a particular licensed cardroom. The cardroom may voluntarily use the California Gambling Control Commission’s form or they may create their own. Self-Restriction periods are dictated by individual cardrooms and can vary from 30 days, 90 days, 1 year, or lifetime. All Self-Restriction forms are kept and maintained in the individual cardrooms.
