NVSEP launch in New England: nationwide self-exclusion

In order to help problem gamblers by offering a comprehensive resource for self-exclusion from gambling establishments across the country, a nonprofit program is being developed.

Since gambling options and laws vary from state to state, there isn’t a common self-exclusion program in the US at the time. However, idPair, a gaming analytics company that specialises in responsible gambling services, is set to launch the National Voluntary Self-Exclusion Programme (NVSEP), the country’s first nationwide voluntary exclusion programme.

Thanks to NVSEP, players will be allowed to self-exclude from both online and physical casinos in a number of states. Unlike the current state-specific self-exclusion programs, NVSEP will provide a nationwide option for individuals who may travel and encounter gambling triggers in other states.

The system aims to make the self-exclusion procedure easier for participants by allowing them to enrol in multiple state self-exclusion programs through a single portal. It will also offer insights into gambling addiction using anonymized data.

Marlene Warner, the chief executive officer of the Massachusetts Council on Gaming and Health, emphasised the need for a national program, stating that it will provide a single, cohesive platform for individuals seeking help and assistance nationwide.

When NVSEP becomes operational, people will be able to stay away from both physical and online casinos in a number of states or the entire country. Additionally, participants will have access to informational materials and services regarding gambling addiction. They will have the choice to determine how long they will be excluded, with a lifetime ban being an option.

The NVSEP will be introduced in Massachusetts initially, followed by other New England states, following state authorities’ permission. Dr. Michelle Malkin, Director of East Carolina University’s Gambling research and Policy Initiative, stressed the necessity for simplicity in this approach because research suggests that the self-exclusion process may be complicated for individuals who are seeking treatment.
