In accordance with regulations, the Bureau administers a confidential list of Self-Excluded patrons. Self-Excluded patrons are banned from all licensed gambling establishments in the State of California. A licensed gambling establishment does not include Tribal Casino's. Self-Excluded patrons are prohibited from collecting any winnings or recovering any losses for the term specified on their form, which can be 1 year, 5 years, or lifetime.
Please be advised that all Self-Exclusion terms are irrevocable.
What happens after the form is completed and processed? The Bureau will send a confirmation letter to the patron notifying them that their form has been accepted and that they have been added to the Self-Exclusion list. If a patron chooses the 1 or 5 year term, the Bureau will also notify the patron of the term expiration prior to the expiration date.
The Bureau also notifies gambling establishments each time a patron is added to the Self-Exclusion list. The notification includes the patrons name, photo, date of birth, exclusion term, and any other personal descriptor information submitted on the Self-Exclusion form.
The Self-Exclusion Registration page allows patrons to complete the Self-Exclusion application form online and provides additional instruction on completing the exclusion process.
