Self-exclusion for non-casino gambling venues

Self-exclusion for non-casino gambling venues

Singaporeans can now apply to voluntarily exclude themselves from selected non-casino gambling venues. 

This follows the launch of a centralised self-exclusion system. 

Currently, self-exclusion is only applied to Singapore's two casinos. 

Non-casino gambling venues like jackpot clubs each run their own system. 

The Social and Family Development Ministry said a centralised system will make it more accessible and convenient for individuals to exclude themselves from multiple venues, at one go. 

All they need do is to apply online, using their SingPass. 

21 non-casino operators such as Singapore Pools, Singapore Turf Club and NTUC Club will participate in the initiative. 

More operators will come on board by the end of the year. 

So far, more than 200,500 Singaporans have applied for a self-exclusion order for Singapore's two casinos. 

To complement this latest initiative, casino operator Resorts World Sentosa has volunteered to develop and run a customized Responsible Gambling training curriculum for staff of private lottery clubs.
