Self-Exclusion:

"Self-exclusion" means voluntarily having oneself barred from the premises of any licensed gaming establishment (hereinafter “casino”) in Mississippi and from all gaming-related activities and privileges, including the issuance of gaming credit and check-cashing privileges; the receipt of direct-marketing and promotional materials regarding gaming opportunities, junket solicitations, player club memberships, complimentary goods and services and the like; and collection of any winnings or recovery of any losses during the exclusionary period.

A person may take steps to become a self-excluded person by appearing personally at any office of the MGC where he or she shall present valid identification credentials containing his or her signature and a photograph. They will submit a completed “Request for Self-Exclusion” form then be photographed by a MGC agent and turn over to the agent all player club cards and similar items issued by any casinos to the person for purposes of gambling.

More information and forms for self-exclusion in Mississippi can be found on the Mississippi Gaming Commission website.
