AbstractThe British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) and the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB) have asked the RGC Centre for the Advancement of Best Practices to conduct a review of the Voluntary Self-Exclusion (VSE)Program. The VSE Program in British Columbia was implemented in early 1999, shortly after BCLC took over the management of casinos. Since that time, the Program has undergone a number of notable changes. Today, VSE is available at all gaming facilities with slot machines including casinos, community gaming centres and the slot floor of racetracks. It is also available at all facilities offering bingo and the online gaming site “playnow.com”. For the purpose of this review, the RGC focused on casino-based VSE and selected five casinos from the 17 casinos in the province of British Columbia that represented a range of location, size and operator.
