Some people are not yet aware that in some places in the world, like california, you can voluntarily self-exclude yourself from all casinos in the state forever. This means that you sign a form and check the option for life-time exclusion which implies that you will be fined or arrested if you are caught in a casino. If you try to gamble at a casino in that state your winnings would be taken away…say you won a huge jackpot…nope , you can not have it. You can never go to a casino in that state again. I just did this and wish I would have done it a lot sooner.
