Under the Casino Control Act (2006), there are three types of exclusions from the casinos namely, Voluntary Self-Exclusion, Family Exclusion and Third Party Exclusion.
Part X of the Casino Control Act also provides powers to the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) to issue other exclusion orders to prohibit certain persons from entering the casinos.
The NCPG and the casino operator may issue exclusion orders upon a person's request.
The NCPG can exclude a person whose gambling behaviour has caused serious harm to his/her
family, upon application by a family member.
Third Party Exclusion
Persons to be excluded under the Third Party Exclusion are defined as:
- Recipients of Public Assistance or Special Grant; and
- Undischarged bankrupts.
