SINCE April, when families can start applying to have their loved ones barred from casinos here, close to 80 people have made enquiries about such family exclusion orders.

Of this number, 14 families have gone on to the next stage towards getting the gambler in their family banned from gaming tables, the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) said on Friday afternoon.

Most of these 14 gamblers are Chinese males, aged between 30 and 60-years-old and have 'O' levels or higher education.
