Self-exclusion is one of the most widely used responsible gaming strategies. This process allows a person to voluntarily exclude themselves from legalized gaming activities as a way of dealing with problematic gambling behavior.

The Self-Exclusion Program allows a person to voluntarily request to be excluded from legalized gaming activities within the District of Columbia for a pre-determined length of time, and to be prohibited from collecting any winnings, recovering any losses or accepting complimentary gifts or services or any other thing of value from an OLG-licensed facility, retail location or mobile wagering platform. Each person seeking in the program shall complete an application requesting placement on the OLG’s Self-Exclusion List, and in doing so acknowledges that it is their responsibility to refrain from engaging in sports wagering and other gambling activities under the jurisdiction of the Office.

Please visit the Self-Exclusion FAQs or DCMR 30 § 2129 Self-Exclusion Program for information on the OLG’s Self-Exclusion Program and requirements.
