Players register online or visit in person to participate.

As part of September’s Responsible Gaming Education Month, the Colorado Division of Gaming (DOG) has launched a statewide self-exclusion program. Colorado players can now register to be excluded from the state’s regulated gaming market.

The organization explained the program in more detail in a statement by saying, “A person may voluntarily apply to be self-excluded from gaming in Colorado.

“Individual self-exclusion means that an individual has made a conscious voluntary effort to exclude themselves from all forms of gaming under the regulatory purview of the Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission and the Colorado Division of Gaming, including gambling at casinos and placing sports wagers at on-site and online sportsbooks.”

Prior to this launch, the responsibility of registering individuals for gambling exclusion fell solely on the Problem Gambling Coalition of Colorado (PGCC). The organization also managed the list.

Colorado Division of Gaming Director Christopher Schroder took a moment to thank the PGCC for its previous work and described the new program as a win for Colorado.

He said, “The Division of Gaming is committed to promoting responsible gaming in the Colorado gaming industry, and the launch of the state’s self-exclusion program is an exciting advancement for our state.

“We appreciate all of the work that the PGCC has done to get the self-exclusion program to this point. They are an excellent partner in this important work.”

Players have the option of voluntarily registering for either one, three or five-year self-exclusion programs and can register online or by filling out a printed form in the DOG office.

Those who choose to fill out a printed form must have it notarized and return it to the office through the mail.
