Voluntary Exclusion Program

Those who have gambling problems or who are concerned about their gambling have the option to exclude themselves from the casinos. Once enrolled, voluntarily excluded persons will be prohibited from entering and gambling in any of the state-owned casinos in Kansas, which include Hollywood Casino in Kansas City, Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City, and a future casino in the southeast region of the state. Applicants can enroll in the Voluntary Exclusion Program for two years or for life. Voluntarily excluded persons will be removed from all casino mailing lists and players rewards systems. If voluntarily excluded persons enter a casino and gamble, they must surrender any winnings, gaming chips, or gaming tickets found in their possession. Enrollment in the Voluntary Exclusion Program is free and confidential. For more information about the Voluntary Exclusion Program, please call the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission at 785-296-5800 or visit their website here.
