      Section: 5:5-174: Compliance with law required for exchange wagering.

          
7. a. A person within this State shall not be permitted to open an exchange wagering account, or place an exchange wager through the exchange wagering system, except in accordance with federal law and this act, and through the exchange wagering licensee, and no entity, other than the exchange wagering licensee, shall accept an exchange wager from a person within this State. A person may not place an exchange wager unless the person has established an exchange wagering account with the exchange wagering licensee. To establish an exchange wagering account, a person shall be at least 18 years of age, and a resident of this State, except that any person on the self-exclusion list established pursuant to section 1 of P.L.2002, c.89 (C.5:5-65.1) shall be prohibited from establishing an exchange wagering account.

b. The exchange wagering account shall be in the name of a natural person and may not be in the name of any beneficiary, custodian, joint trust, corporation, partnership or other organization or entity.

c. An exchange wagering account may be established in person, by mail, telephone, or other electronic media, by a person completing an application form approved by the commission. The form shall include the address of the principal residence of the prospective exchange wagering account holder and a statement that a false statement made in regard to an application may subject the applicant to prosecution. The exchange wagering licensee must verify the identification, residence, and age of the exchange wagering account holder using methods and technologies approved by the commission.

d. The prospective exchange wagering account holder shall submit the completed application in person, by mail, telephone, or other electronic media, including the Internet and wireless devices, to the exchange wagering licensee or such other person or entity as may be approved by the commission. The exchange wagering licensee may accept or reject an application after receipt and review of the application and certification, or other proof, of age and residency for compliance with this act.

e. Any prospective exchange wagering account holder who provides false or misleading information on the application is subject to rejection of the application or cancellation of the exchange wagering account by the exchange wagering licensee without notice.

f. The exchange wagering licensee shall have the right to suspend or close any exchange wagering account at its discretion.

g. Any person not in good standing with the commission shall not be entitled to maintain an exchange wagering account.

h. The address provided by the applicant in the application shall be deemed the proper address for the purposes of mailing checks, exchange wagering account withdrawals, notices and other materials.

i. An exchange wagering account shall not be assignable or otherwise transferable.

j. The exchange wagering licensee may cancel or allow to be cancelled, any unmatched wagers, without cause, at any time. Except as otherwise provided in this act or in regulations which the commission may adopt hereunder, all matched wagers shall be final and no wager shall be canceled by the exchange wagering account holder at any time after the wager has been matched by the exchange wagering licensee.

k. The commission may prescribe rules governing when an exchange wagering licensee may cancel or void a matched wager or part of a matched wager, and the actions which an exchange wagering licensee may take when all or part of a matched wager is cancelled or voided. Such rules may include, but are not limited to, permitting the exchange wagering licensee to place corrective wagers under circumstances approved in the rules adopted by the commission.

l. The exchange wagering licensee may at any time declare the exchange wagering system closed for receiving any wagers on any race or closed for all exchange wagering.
