The new site offers casino self-exclusion programs and problem gambling resources in one place.

The California Council on Problem Gambling (CCPG) has launched a new website, HowToExclude.org. The site is the first in the state to provide a comprehensive list of self-exclusion programs offered by almost all casinos in California on one domain.

HowToExclude.org also includes information on how to enroll in self-exclusion programs, as well as access to support services and resources that aid in overcoming program gambling.

CCPG Executive Director Robert Jacobson said, "We are excited to launch this website, which will make it easier for individuals who want to exclude themselves from casinos in California.

"We believe that this will be an invaluable resource for individuals struggling with gambling problems and seeking help."

Jacobson went on to discuss the organization’s desire to educate the public on gambling addiction and how to find help if necessary.

He commented, "We want to raise awareness of the harmful consequences of gambling addiction and the importance of seeking help if you or a loved one is struggling with this disease.

"We have programs available in California, at no cost to you, that have helped thousands of individuals overcome their gambling problems and rebuild their lives."

Along with the launch of the new site, the CCPG recognized both Yaamava' Resort and Casino and Pechanga Resort and Casino for earning annual responsible gaming certifications. Both destinations have worked to provide resources regarding problem gambling prevention and to encourage responsible gaming.

Jacobson commended both casinos by saying, "We are pleased to congratulate Yaamava' Resort and Casino and Pechanga Resort and Casino for their dedication to responsible gaming practices.

"Their efforts are an important step in the promotion of responsible gaming behaviors and protecting individuals from the harms of problem gambling."
