A total of 5,035 people have been issued a third-party visit limit as at the end of last year – about 14 times more than the 354 people given the visit limit when the scheme started in 2013.
The third-party visit limit is for people with poor credit records or the “financially vulnerable” who do not have the means to gamble in casinos frequently.
An NCPG spokesman told The Straits Times the current average cap is four visits a month.
She added: “However, casino gamblers should not have the impression that four visits a month is a safe limit, as the circumstances surrounding each gambler are different.”
The NCPG said the number of visit limits issued has increased as it is a cumulative figure since 2013.
