§ 814a.2. Responsible gaming self-limits.

 An interactive gaming system must be capable of allowing a registered player to establish the following responsible gaming limits. Any decrease to these limits may not be effective later than the registered player’s next login. Any increase to these limits must become effective only after the time period of the previous limit has expired and the registered player reaffirms the requested increase:

   (1)  A deposit limit must be offered on a daily, weekly and monthly basis and must specify the maximum amount of money a registered player may deposit into his interactive gaming account during a particular period of time.

   (2)  A limit on the amount of money spent within a daily, weekly and monthly basis must be offered. The registered player shall be unable to participate in gaming for the remainder of the time selected if the registered player reaches the loss limit.

   (3)  A limit on the maximum amount of any single wager on any interactive game.

   (4)  A time-based limit must be offered on a daily basis and must specify the maximum amount of time, measured hourly from the registered player’s login to log off, a registered player may spend engaging in interactive gaming, provided that if the time-based limit is reached a registered player is permitted to complete any round of play, or active or prepaid tournament.

   (5)  A table limit must be offered and must specify the maximum amount a registered player may bring to a peer-to-peer interactive gaming table.

   (6)  A temporary suspension of a player’s interactive gaming account must be offered for any number of hours or days, as selected by the registered player, which shall not be less than 72 hours.

   (7)  The interactive gaming certificate holder or interactive gaming operator shall provide a mechanism by which a registered player may change the controls of paragraphs (1)—(6). Notwithstanding any other provision in this section, the registered player may not change gaming controls while an interactive gaming account is suspended. The registered player shall continue to have access to the interactive gaming account and shall be permitted to withdraw funds from the account upon proper application for the funds to the interactive gaming certificate holder or interactive gaming operator.
