Voluntary Self-Exclusion

Is it time for a break?

Sometimes gambling stops feeling like a game or a way to have fun. If you feel this way or find yourself gambling too much, the Voluntary Self-Exclusion (VSE) program may be right for you. The VSE program allows you to voluntarily exclude yourself from the gaming floor of all MA casinos for a pre-determined amount of time. We understand that realizing you may have a gambling problem can be difficult to accept. That’s why there’s a support system in place to help you if you have concerns.

We have trained advisors located at GameSense Info Centers located at the three MA casinos. We also can enroll you remotely.

Speak with a GameSense Advisor to learn more or to begin enrollment:

Email us at VSE@macgh.org or call 1-800-426-1234 and press option #2 for VSE.  You may also Chat Live with us now using the chat feature on our website!  The Mass. Council stands ready to provide any additional resources and referrals, in the casino and out in the community, for those enrollees in need.

“From the beginning, I felt I was in a knowledgeable, nurturing, caring and non-judgmental environment. I felt welcomed and that I was among people who encouraged me to be open and honest about my gambling addiction. The retreat was very beneficial for me, I am in recovery and after this weekend I can honestly say that I will stay this way.”
