Third Party Exclusion program
Crown understands that sometimes individuals may have difficulty in accepting their gaming problem or may be unwilling to access help for themselves. For this reason, Crown has a Third Party Exclusion Application available for family members or friends that are concerned about a loved one’s gaming. This application process enables family or friends to submit information outlining their concerns to Crown's Responsible Gaming Team.
Submitting a Third Party Exclusion Application is a very serious undertaking and Crown always encourages the third party seeking to have a person excluded to discuss voluntary Self Exclusion with the person they are concerned about prior to lodging a Third Party Exclusion Application. The Responsible Gaming Team can assist and advise you on this. More information on Self Exclusion is available here.

When someone experiences problem gaming or gaming related harm, it takes its toll not only on the individual but also the ones closest to them. It is important for those affected by someone else’s problem gaming to remember that they too can seek help. If you need support please contact our team on 1800 801 098, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or in person at the Responsible Gaming Centre (RGC) 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
