Self exclusion program
Self Exclusion program at Crown
When you need a break from gambling, one of the biggest barriers can be self-control. One method to hold yourself accountable for stopping play completely is by opting into Crown’s Self Exclusion program.
Individuals can sign a voluntary agreement to prohibit themselves from entering or remaining in the gambling areas at Crown Sydney, Crown Perth and Crown Melbourne. There is also an added option of Self Excluding from The Star Sydney. A Self Exclusion is for a minimum period of 12 months, with longer options available. These options can be discussed with a Crown PlaySafe Advisor.
Why Self Exclusion?
Customers may seek to Self Exclude from the casino for a number of reasons including (but not limited to):
- Creating an opportunity to stop or control their gambling
- To take a break from gambling therefore preventing the risk of increased financial loss and other associated problems
- To take a break from gambling to focus on other aspects of life such as family, work or study
- To support a family member or friend who may be experiencing problems with their gambling

Applicants are required to successfully complete the revocation process before being permitted to return to the casino. The steps to revocation include:
