Program Helps Habitual Gamblers Stay Away From Casinos

Maryland lottery officials say 100 people have now signed up for a program that helps habitual gamblers stay away from casinos.

They're calling it a milestone for the state's Voluntary Exclusion Program, which began last January.

People who sign up are taken off all casino mailing lists, and barred from casino promotions. If participants are caught at the casino, they can be arrested for trespassing and have their winnings confiscated.

They can chose to enroll for two years, or for life.
