Since the fall of 2020, Tennessee has offered online sports betting services to players via mobile and desktop devices. The state is one of only a select few that provides online betting only with no option for land-based betting.
Players have access to top-rated providers, including DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetMGM, among others. There are plenty of betting options on offer, including moneyline bets, props, parlay, and more.
Sports betting operators in Tennessee are expected to provide a safe and secure gambling environment. As part of the service options, sportsbooks must provide a link for self-exclusion so that players can cut themselves off from services if a gambling addiction occurs.
It is essential that players learn how to self-exclude so that the voluntary ban is efficiently used if a cut-off time is needed.
Check out the full self-exclusion process below if you or a loved one needs assistance with taking a break from online sports betting.
Self-exclusion in Tennessee is bound to each operator. If you need to take a break from online sports betting, you must contact the operator for assistance.
After you have signed up for self-exclusion via a Tennessee sports betting operator, the provider sends your information to other sportsbooks.
The lists must also be sent to the Tennessee Education Lottery in monthly reports. The request for self-exclusion cannot be reversed and must last for the allotted time frame.
Since there is no official self-exclusion list for the entire state, you will need to see what each sportsbook requires for you to be removed from the list.
In most cases, you must complete the time selected before you can access sports betting again. Check with support at each sportsbook you use to know how to get off the list when you are ready.
Once you are off the self-exclusion list, you will be able to bet via your favorite sportsbooks. Just log in to your account, and you should be given access to betting odds and lines.
Since there are no casinos in Tennessee, you will not be banned from any land-based facility. You will be banned from accessing online sportsbooks via a web browser or mobile app.
Contact the sports betting operators you use for betting to learn how to self-exclude. Each operator is different so that the process will vary based on the provider.
Tennessee does not have a set time for how long an individual must stay on the self-excluded list.
The time frames offered to you will be listed per provider, and some may offer 30 days to a few months while others may have one year or longer bans.
