State launches online portal for self-exclusion from gaming

The state Department of Consumer Protection announced Friday it has launched an online portal that will enable consumers to voluntarily exclude themselves from participating in gaming activities in Connecticut.

With sports betting and online casino gaming set to launch next month, the department, along with the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Connecticut Council on Problem Gaming, the Connecticut Lottery Corp. and the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes, also is encouraging consumers to learn the signs of problem gambling and practice responsible gaming habits.

“We know there is a lot of excitement around the launch of an expanded gaming industry in Connecticut,” Michelle Seagull, the DCP commissioner, said in a news release. “While this may be a form of entertainment many people can enjoy, for others it can be a harmful addiction. The ability to voluntarily exclude yourself from these activities is one of the many tools available to help.”
