Nassau OTB's Voluntary Exclusion Program

Additionally, individuals can participate in Nassau OTB's Voluntary Exclusion Program. This program is a New York State mandated program to assist individuals who believe they have a gambling problem by allowing them the opportunity to voluntarily request that they be excluded from Nassau OTB wagering locations and from having a Nassau OTB wagering account. To sign up for Nassau OTB's Voluntary Exclusion Program an individual must complete the Voluntary Exclusion Application. This application is available by clicking here, by contacting Nassau OTB's Customer Service Department at (516) 572-2800 Ext. 178 or 179 or at any Nassau OTB branch location. The individual completing the application must also provide a recent photo (such as a passport or driver's license photo) of themselves and have their signature witnessed by a Nassau OTB Branch Manager.

The application will be forwarded to Nassau OTB's administrative offices and upon receipt the applicant will receive a receipt from Nassau OTB informing them that they have now officially voluntarily excluded themselves from wagering opportunities at Nassau OTB. The photo and other identifying information will be kept by Nassau OTB employees and Fast Track partners in non-public areas and is used to assist with enforcement of your voluntary request.

This Voluntary Exclusion Program is only applicable with Nassau OTB and no other gambling entity.

Voluntarily enlisting in Nassau OTB's Voluntary Exclusion Program prohibits you from entering any Nassau OTB branch location or having a Nassau OTB wagering account.

But for others gambling causes problems and for some, it becomes uncontrollable and is no longer a choice. Compulsive gambling is not a bad habit but rather a life threatening disorder. Compulsive gambling is destructive to families, friendships, and careers. Bills go unpaid, basic needs like money for food and rent are neglected. Some gamblers become suicidal. Most will need help to change their gambling behavior.
