The Time Out Ohio Voluntary Program

Ohio Casino Control and the Ohio Lottery Commissions partners to administer this program. This program offers individuals the ability to ban themselves from Ohio’s casinos, Ohio racinos and Ohio sports gaming for one year, five years or their lifetime. Once the request is validated, you are not permitted access to any Ohio casino, racino properties and to participate in Ohio sports gaming during the length of the self imposed ban. This ban may include affiliated properties outside of Ohio.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Applicants cannot be under the influence of any substance at the time of enrollment request
  • Once enrolled in Time Out Ohio, these properties may expand bans across all properties outside of Ohio – national and international
  • The casino/racino/sportsbook operators are required to make all reasonable attempts to stop all direct marketing efforts to participants
  • The Ohio Voluntary Exclusion Program (Ohio VEP) has been branded as Time Out Ohio.  Time Out Ohio includes all aspects of the Ohio VEP, including all active participant agreements.
