2. a. A person on the self-exclusion list established pursuant to section 1 of P.L.2002, c.89 (C.5:5-65.1), shall not collect, in any manner or proceeding, winnings or recover losses arising as a result of wagering activity at a permitted racetrack or licensed off-track wagering facility, or through the account wagering system, or through the exchange wagering system.

b. Money or a thing of value which has been obtained by, or is owed to, a person on the self-exclusion list from a permitted racetrack, licensed off-track wagering facility or account wagering system or exchange wagering system as a result of wagers made by that person shall be subject to forfeiture by order of the executive director of the commission, following notice to the person on the self-exclusion list and opportunity to be heard.

Money or a thing of value forfeited 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.
