Self-Exclusion

What is self-exclusion? What is the Sports Wagering Unauthorized Exclusion list?

Is the money or time you’re spending gambling causing problems in your life? Give yourself a break. One tool that many people find useful is self-exclusion. That is when you voluntarily complete a form that prevents you from gambling at casinos or with sports wagering operators in Maine for a chosen length of time. Complete the self-exclusion process in-person or online with the assistance of trained staff. The process is fast and easy. If you have questions, contact Problem Gambling Services Coordinator, Lori Manson, at (207) 626-3615 ext. 20 or email lmanson@adcareme.org

Here are some details:

  • Casino Self-Exclusion list: The periods of time you can choose are 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, or lifetime. The Gambling Control Unit holds the official self- exclusion list and releases the names only to casino or slot establishments.
  • Sports Wagering Unauthorized Exclusion list: The periods of time you can choose are 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, or lifetime. You must complete one of the shorter terms before you can sign up for the lifetime list. The Gambling Control Unit holds the official self- exclusion list and releases the names only to sports wagering operators.
