Self Exclusion FAQ

Mississippi Gaming Commission

Frequently Asked Questions about Self-Exclusion


  1. Can I mail in my request for Self-Exclusion? No. The person requesting self-exclusion must appear personally at one of the Mississippi Gaming Commission Offices.

  2. Will I be excluded from all casinos, or can I choose certain ones? MGC Self-Exclusion pertains to all casinos in the state of Mississippi.

  3. Can I go to other areas of the casino besides the gaming floor? No, you will be excluded from all parts of the casino property, including but not limited to restaurants, bars, theaters, and hotels.

  4. What happens if I violate my pledge not to visit a Mississippi Casino? If you have placed your name on the voluntary exclusion list and you are found anywhere on the premises of a Mississippi casino, you will immediately be ejected and, within the discretion of the casino, may be arrested and prosecuted for criminal trespass. Continued non-cooperation may result in placement by the Commission on the involuntary exclusion list.

  5. Can I still work at a casino if I place myself on the list? Yes. Any self-excluded person who is an employee of a casino may request permission from the Commission to enter a specific casino to carry out employment duties. These requests must be made in writing by the human resources department of the casino. The approval of this request is subject to rescission at any time by the Executive Director.

  6. What options do I have to get off the list? In Mississippi, you have the option to sign up for any length of time up to a lifetime, but in no event for less than five years. Except for those persons choosing a lifetime self-exclusion, removal from the list will be automatic when the period of self-exclusion specified is over. Your name cannot be removed from the list early. Self-exclusions remain in effect until the expiration of the period of self-exclusion.

  7. If I enroll in the MGC Self-Exclusion Program, will I be excluded from casinos in other states? Possibly. Mississippi has casinos owned and operated by, among others, Caesar’s Entertainment Inc., Penn National Gaming, Inc., and MGM Resorts International. Many of these companies also own and operate casinos throughout the world. Since many of their player systems are connected, you may be excluded from all of their properties and operations, not just the ones in Mississippi.
