NJ OKs No-Shame Change To Casino Self-Ban

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -

Gamblers could ban themselves from casinos or gambling websites without having to admit they have a problem, under a bill approved by the New Jersey Legislature on Thursday.

People will be able to request that they not be admitted to casinos or allowed to gamble online. Names on the list are not made public, but the law currently requires people to attest that they have a gambling problem. They can choose whether the bans are for one year, five years or life. The bill now goes to Gov. Chris Christie to sign or veto.
