NJ Gamblers May Have Self-Ban From Casinos Without Admitting Problem

(Associated Press)  — New Jersey is considering letting people ban themselves from casino or Internet gambling without having to admit they have a gambling problem.

The state's voluntary self-exclusion lists permit people to sign up and request that they not be admitted to casinos or allowed to gamble online. But the law currently requires them to attest that they have a gambling problem.

A bill that cleared a state Assembly committee on Thursday would let people sign up for the lists without having to admit they are compulsive gamblers.

Donald Weinbaum, head of the state's Council on Compulsive Gambling, says the change would take away some of the stigma of signing up for the list.

The same Assembly committee also advanced a bill requiring casinos to put cameras in every stairwell.

United States Attorney William M. McSwain announced that the internet sports betting company, 5D Holdings Ltd. (operating under the unincorporated brand name, “5Dimes”) and Laura Varela, have agreed to forfeit more than $46.8 million in gambling proceeds as part of a settlement agreement in a criminal investigation into 5Dimes’ sports betting operation based in Costa Rica that allowed American gamblers to place bets, primarily through its website www.5Dimes.eu, in violation of U.S. law.
