PA Gaming Control Board Launches Self-Exclusion Program for Online Gambling

HARRISBURG, PA — The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) announced that a self-help tool for individuals to voluntarily exclude themselves from participating in the new internet-based gaming (iGaming) activities for sports wagering and casino-like games is now available.

Modeled after the successful Self-Exclusion Program that has assisted thousands of persons by allowing them to voluntarily ban themselves from gaming in Pennsylvania’s casinos, the iGaming Self-Exclusion Program will similarly allow individuals to voluntarily choose 1-year, 5-year, or lifetime bans for on-line gambling activities.

Information and a sign-up tool for the iGaming Self-Exclusion Program can be accessed from a special link under the QuickLinks section of the homepage on the PGCB’s website, https://gamingcontrolboard.pa.gov.

All Commonwealth on-line gaming sites must refuse wagers and deny gaming privileges to all persons on the iGaming Self-Exclusion list, as well as refuse any player club membership, complimentary goods and services, and other similar privileges; and, ensure that persons on the iGaming Self-Exclusion list do not receive solicitations, targeted mailings, telemarketing promotions, player club materials or other promotional materials relating to iGaming activities.

It is important to note that the PGCB’s iGaming Self-Exclusion Program is separate from the existing casino Self-Exclusion Program.

To speak with a representative with the PGCB about the iGaming Self-Exclusion Program, call (717)346-8300.
