The number of people who applied for the Macau government’s voluntary casino self-exclusion programme is likely to set a new annual record in 2015.
Data from the city’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) show that a total of 77 people applied for self-exclusion between July and September.
A total of 245 people applied for self-exclusion from Macau’s casinos during the first nine months of 2015.
For full 2014, the self-exclusion total was 262 applications, 10 more than in the previous year.
Macau’s self-exclusion programme was launched in November 2012.
Any person can apply to be excluded from entering casinos in Macau. The maximum exclusion period is two years but it can be extended. The applicant can apply for exclusion from all or just some casinos. Those who fail to comply with the exclusion order risk up to one year in jail or a fine.
