Thousands of people who have voluntarily banned themselves from Missouri casinos will get a second chance at playing the slots.

The Missouri Gaming Commission voted Wednesday to relax rules for the state's casino exclusion list, which imposes a lifetime casino ban on problem gamblers who voluntarily sign up for it.

Starting next spring, the new rules will allow people to remove themselves from the list after they have been on it for at least five years.

Missouri regulators are studying revisions in a rule that lets problem gamblers get themselves banned from casinos for life.

The Missouri Gaming Commission on Wednesday voted to move forward with proposed changes in the 15-year-old self-exclusion program.

The revised rule would let people remove themselves from the exclusion list after five years. They could choose later to go back on the list, but doing so would mean a lifetime ban from casinos.
