Self-exclusion: Voluntarily exclude yourself from gambling activities

The self-exclusion program allows you to voluntarily exclude yourself from gambling in all card rooms and non-tribal casinos statewide.

What the self-exclusion program is

The Self-Exclusion Program, implemented in May of 2022, allows you to submit a single form to voluntarily exclude yourself from all house-banked cardrooms statewide. Tribal casinos may also participate in this statewide Self-Exclusion Program. Please monitor this page for participating tribal casinos.

How to enroll in the self-exclusion program

The self-exclusion form, once completed and submitted, prevents you from gambling in or being a patron of Washington licensed house-banked card rooms and participating tribal casinos. Once enrolled, you cannot request early removal.
