Self-Exclusion Scheme Launches in New York

The program allows individuals to voluntarily exclude themselves from all legal gambling activities in New York, including online gambling and entering licensed gambling establishments.

The New York Council on Problem Gambling (NYCPG) plays a crucial role in this program, offering guidance on the self-exclusion process and connecting individuals with treatment providers for problem gambling.
