Step Away Fom the Roulette Wheel

If you’re dropping your paycheck at Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods, there is more that you can do to stop the madness than just step away from the roulette table.

To help keep yourself in check, casinos will help problem gamblers ensure they never fall off the craps table again through the self-exclusion list, the Norwich Bulletin reports.

It’s away to quell the allure of the bells, buzz, lights and the possibility of quick riches.

Gamblers who sign the lists at both casinos will not be able to get a cash advance, cash a check or use a player’s card in either casino. If the gambler is recognized, security will escort that person off the premises or even charge him or her with trespassing, the newspaper reports.

The program started here in 1994 as a partnership between the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and the Connecticut Council on Problem Gambling to create a responsible gambling program, the Norwich Bulletin reported.

Foxwoods does not disclose the number on the self-exclusion list, but more than 1,700 people have signed up at Mohegan Sun. Foxwoods allows gamblers to place themselves on the exclusion list for two years, five years or for life, Mohegan Sun offers no way out.
