In other state news, the Colorado Division of Gaming recently launched a statewide self-exclusion program. Colorado players can now register to be excluded from the state’s regulated gaming market.

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.

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.”
