Everi Cares - STeP

Everi's Personal Self Transaction Exclusion Program (STeP) is a way for gamblers to block access to cash across the company's national network of ATMs, cash access kiosks, and booth services. The program works in conjunction with a casino's own exclusion program.

Players who believe they have a problem can download a form to Request to Block Transactions and indicate what cards and accounts they wish to block. Once Everi processes the form, the identified account is blocked at participating Everi access points for at least one year.

The account block remains in place until a customer unblocks his or her account(s) by filling out and submitting the Request to Unblock Transactions form.

The STeP exclusion is effective on credit cards, ATM debit cards, and checking accounts at both machine terminals and cashier cages.
