Self Exlusion Order
If you have concerns about the amount of money you are spending on gaming machines and wish to be Excluded from the gaming area of any of the Napier RSA venue/s, we have a legal process that enables our venue operation to ban you from playing our machines.
A Self-Exclusion Order is an agreement between and individual and the venue whereby, for a agreed period for up to two years, venue staff will prohibit the individual from entering the gaming area, and may instigate Trespass proceeding, if necessary. All Napier RSA Venue Managers can assist with the completion of a Self-Exclusion form.
Visit the venue and ask the Manager to complete the form with you. Or, download the form from this website and complete all sections. Then take it to the venue, or post it to the venue to sign the bottom section.
To effectively administer the Self Exclusion Order, the venue also requires a clear, current photo of the person seeking Self Exclusion.
If you have any queries about this process, please contact the Napier RSA Operations Manager Tracy Gempton on (06) 835 7629 Ext 715 or Cell 021 515 520
