Gamblers Bar Themselves From Casionos

Last updated on Monday, October 17, 2011

(UNDATED) - There are 4,232 people — 25 in Lawrence and Orange counties — who have barred themselves from entering any of the state’s casinos or race tracks.

These are people who know they have a gambling problem and have signed up for the state's Voluntary Exclusion Program, which was created by the Indiana Gaming Commission in 2004.

The program doesn't allow anyone whose name is on the list to enter a casino. If somebody on the list does enter a casino they will be escorted off the property.
