Indiana Gaming Commission

IGC > Voluntary Exclusion Program Voluntary Exclusion Program

Purpose

As a result of legislation passed in 2003, the IGC maintains the Voluntary Exclusion Program (VEP) allowing individuals to self exclude from all Indiana casinos by completing just one form. The VEP went into effect on July 1, 2004.

Enrollment

A person may sign up at any Indiana casino, at the IGC office in Indianapolis or with a designated problem gambling treatment provider for one year, five years or lifetime exclusion. The list of excluded persons is confidential. In order to sign up for the VEP, an interested participant must fill out a Request for Voluntary Exclusion form in person, witnessed by a gaming agent or IGC designee. The participant must complete the form of their own free will and not be under the influence of alcohol, controlled substances or prescription medication. Once enrolled, it is the responsibility of the VEP participant to stay away from gaming areas of the casinos.  A photograph will be taken at the time the person requests voluntary exclusion.

Our office is open during the hours of 8:15 A.M. to 4:45 P.M.
For your convenience, please call 317-234-3600 to ensure that someone is available to process your application.

Removal

A person may, upon the expiration of the selected term of voluntary exclusion, request removal of his or her name from the Voluntary Exclusion Program (VEP).  A person making a request for removal must do so in writing, on the appropriate form. The Request for Removal form may be completed at the IGC office in Indianapolis, an Indiana casino location or by US mail. A person making a request for removal by US mail must properly complete the form, and submit it to the Indiana Gaming Commission, 101 W. Washington St., East Tower, Suite 1600, Indianapolis, Indiana, 46204. A copy of valid government issued photo identification must be included for the removal application to be accepted and approved.  The person is not removed from the VEP until the IGC accepts this form and notifies the person in writing that he/she is removed from the VEP.
