NYRAbets is committed to promoting responsible wagering by its account holders. NYRAbets and its affiliate The New York Racing Association, Inc. have partnered with organizations, including the National Council on Problem Gambling (“NCPG”) and the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (“New York State HOPEline”), to address issues of compulsive and pathological gambling and have developed a comprehensive program to ensure account holders wager responsibly.
It is NYRAbets’ policy not to accept wagers from underage gamblers and to limit account access to the account holder. Account holders must provide their identity, age and principal place of residence, all of which are verified through a third party information services company, upon establishing an account. Each account holder must be able to provide proper identification (account number and personal identification number) to ensure only the account holder can access his or her account.
Individuals with a gambling problem may choose to voluntarily exclude themselves from wagering at NYRA racetracks by making a request for self-exclusion. Please note: PURSUANT TO NEW YORK STATE GAMING COMMISSION REGULATIONS, ANY PERSON WHO REQUESTS TO BE EXCLUDED FROM NYRABETS WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM ALL NEW YORK STATE GAMING ACTIVITIES AND FACILITIES, INCLUDING: CASINOS, HORSE RACING TRACKS, OFF-TRACK BETTING FACILITIES, VIDEO LOTTERY GAMING AND INTERACTIVE FANTASY SPORTS ACTIVITIES. A list of the specific gaming facilities and activities can be found on the self-exclusion form.
In order to self-exclude, customers must fill out the New York State approved request for self-exclusion form that can be downloaded HERE
