Casino Visit Limits
Problem gambling is an addiction that can lead to serious problems, whether you are a gambler or an affected family member. It is important to recognise the risks and seek help. Applying for Casino Visit Limit can help to control an excessive gambling habit.
2. WHO QUALIFIES FOR A CASINO VISIT LIMIT
The person to be imposed with a visit limit should be a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident aged 21 and above.
3. ARE THERE ANY APPLICATION FEES
4. WHO ADMINISTERS THE CASINO VISIT LIMIT
NCPG is empowered under the Casino Control Act (Part X) to administer the Casino Visit Limit.
5. WHICH TYPE OF CASINO VISIT LIMIT SHOULD I APPLY FOR
Individuals are encouraged to apply for a Voluntary Visit Limit as it allows you to take personal responsibility to resolve the harm caused by problem gambling. A family member should apply for a Family Visit Limit if your family member is unwilling to address or confront his/her gambling issues.
6. HOW DO I KNOW IF A CASINO VISIT LIMIT HAS BEEN IMPOSED ON ME
Once you have reached your visit limit for the calendar month, you will not be allowed to enter the casinos for the rest of that month. The visit limit will reset on the first day of each new calendar month. You may check your visit limit status by clicking here.
Please note that if you are subject to any form of casino exclusion, you will no longer be able to enter the casinos even if you had a visit limit earlier.
For Family or Third-Party Visit Limit, the affected individual will be notified after a decision has been made by NCPG.
7. WHEN WILL THE VOLUNTARY VISIT LIMIT TAKE EFFECT
The Voluntary Visit Limit will take effect immediately. If you have already exceeded the visit limit in this calendar month before your application, you will not be able to enter the casinos for the rest of the calendar month.
