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.
A person may sign up at any Indiana casino, at the IGC office in Indianapolis, with a designated problem gambling treatment provider or online via the IGC’s website 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 or complete the form online by passing an identity verification check. 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 copy of a government issued photo identification is required for enrollment. A photograph will be taken at the time the person requests voluntary exclusion and must also be provided with an online application.
Our office is open during the hours of 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
For your convenience, please call 317-234-3600 to ensure that someone is available to process your application.
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). The Request for Removal form shall be completed at the IGC office in Indianapolis, an Indiana casino location, by US mail or online on the IGC’s website. 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.
