Multi-venue Self Exclusion (MVSE)

MVSE (or self-banning) is a voluntary process initiated by a person who has a gambling concern, to exclude themselves from specific areas of gambling venues, entire venues, or online providers. This can include hotels, clubs and the Star Casino. All gambling venues in NSW must offer a self-exclusion scheme. Working with Clubs NSW, MPGS can assist in making self-exclusion applications from clubs and hotels in NSW.
