This Comment examines the law revolving around a compulsive gambler's ability to exclude himself from a casino. While the current state of the law in many jurisdictions properly allows a person to place himself on a self-exclusion list," in an effort to be barred from entering into a casino, the law provides no remedy for the self-excluded gambler in the event that the casino negligently, deliberately, or even recklessly allows the self-excluded person to gamble. This comment calls for a change to that jurisprudence and invites the judiciary to allow a self-excluded gambler to receive redress from the casino that does not uphold its promise of exclusion.
