LINCOLN, Nebraska (KOLN) – The Nebraska Racing and Gaming Commission is launching a statewide portal for members of the public to voluntarily bar themselves from participating in gaming activities in Nebraska. The portal will include the Nebraska Voluntary Self-Exclusion Program and other problem game resources.
The Nebraska Racing and Gaming Commission encourages the public to practice responsible gambling practices and learn the signs of problematic gambling before full casino operations take place. The development of Nebraska’s Voluntary Self-Exclusion Program is another step to improve industry best practices to prevent gambling problems statewide.
“We recognize the excitement and anticipation for expanded gaming in Nebraska,” said Nebraska Racing and Gaming Executive Director Tom Sage. “Having mechanisms to mitigate the effects of harmful problematic gaming is key to regulating a professional gaming industry. We encourage everyone to learn the signs of problem gambling and use the voluntary self-exclusion program if you or a loved one has an addiction.”
