Section: 5:12-71.3: Penalties for gaming by prohibited persons.
2. a. A person who is prohibited from gaming in a licensed casino or simulcasting facility by any provision of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-1 et seq.) or any order of the director, commission, or court of competent jurisdiction, including any person on the self-exclusion list pursuant to section 1 of P.L.2001, c.39 (C.5:12-71.2), shall not collect, in any manner or proceeding, any winnings or recover any losses arising as a result of any prohibited gaming activity.
b. For the purposes of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-1 et seq.), any gaming activity in a licensed casino or simulcasting facility which results in a prohibited person obtaining any money or thing of value from, or being owed any money or thing of value by, the casino or simulcasting facility shall be considered, solely for purposes of this section, to be a fully executed gambling transaction.
c. In addition to any other penalty provided by law, any money or thing of value which has been obtained by, or is owed to, any prohibited person by a licensed casino or simulcasting facility as a result of wagers made by a prohibited person shall be subject to forfeiture following notice to the prohibited person and opportunity to be heard. A licensed casino or simulcasting facility shall inform a prohibited person of the availability of such notice on the division's Internet website when ejecting the prohibited person and seizing any chips, vouchers or other representative of money owed by a casino to the prohibited person as authorized by this subsection.
Of any forfeited amount under $100,000, one-half shall be deposited into the State General Fund for appropriation by the Legislature to the Department of Human Services to provide funds for compulsive gambling treatment and prevention programs in the State and the remaining one-half shall be deposited into the Casino Revenue Fund. Of any forfeited amount of $100,000 or more, $50,000 shall be deposited into the State General Fund for appropriation by the Legislature to the Department of Human Services to provide funds for compulsive gambling treatment and prevention programs and the remainder shall be deposited into the Casino Revenue Fund.
d. In any proceeding brought by the division against a licensee or registrant pursuant to section 108 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-108) for a willful violation of the commission's self-exclusion regulations, the division may order, in addition to any other sanction authorized by section 129 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-129), the forfeiture of any money or thing of value obtained by the licensee or registrant from any self-excluded person. Any money or thing of value so forfeited shall be disposed of in the same manner as any money or thing of value forfeited pursuant to subsection c. of this section.
L.2001, c.39, s.2; amended 2011, c.19, s.38; 2012, c.17, s.16.
