Banned Iowa gamblers may be able to return to casinos

casino_slot_machineDES MOINES – Persons who have banned themselves for life from Iowa casinos may have the option of returning, after the Iowa Senate approved legislation Tuesday that would allow those gamblers to apply to have their ban lifted.

Under Senate File 204, which passed 46-2 in the Democratically-controlled Senate, banned persons could apply to have the ban lifted after five years. The option of just a five year ban would also be offered, versus the only option now, which is a ban for life.

Currently, a self-imposed ban from Iowa casinos is for life and there is no way to undo it.  By signing an exclusion form, a person can voluntarily request a lifetime ban from all casinos in Iowa. This form will then be disseminated to all IGA member casinos (The two tribal casinos are exempt from participation).  The form can be downloaded and taken to the nearest casino.
