What is a "Banned List"?

A banned list is a list of people unwelcome at a casino. Often, casinos will use face identification technology to alert the casino if someone on the list tries to enter.

How to File a Request to Join the “Banned List”?

Getting yourself on the banned list without having committed a crime is a long and complicated process but DoNotPay can help.

The steps to "self-exclusion from gambling" for those who chose to join the banned list vary from state to state, but certain steps are similar:

  1. Go online to the state gambling website.
  2. Register and create an account with a login and a password.
  3. You need to fill out a complex form; if you fail to fill out the form correctly, you will need to call the state gambling phone number.
  4. If you're online, you'll need to upload a valid ID; on the phone; you'll need to send them a copy of the ID to an address they give you.
  5. You will have to take a live photo of yourself and upload it to the site; if you are on the phone, you will need to mail the photo to the address provided.
  6. You need to choose a length of time to be self-excluded.
  7. You will automatically end your self-exclusion once the time period ends, and the self-exclusion can be undone at any time with a click of the button.

There is a problem with this whole process. Filling out a long, complex form, uploading a copy of your ID, and uploading a recent picture may be too difficult for someone trying to recover from a gambling addiction.

There must be an easier way.

4. Select how long you want to be banned for (you can choose anywhere from 1 year to a lifetime!)
