ATLANTIC CITY — The state Division of Gaming Enforcement ordered a gambler on a self-exclusion list to give up $15,527 in internet winnings.

The winnings are being held by NYX Gaming Group, which offers online gambling through a partnership with Resorts Casino Hotel.

The order for forfeiture was among DGE Director David Rebuck’s actions listed in a notice published this week and dated May 9.

The notice said the patron, identified as “ST,” failed to demand a hearing within a set time period. The action says Resorts is directed to remit the forfeited money to the DGE for appropriate disposition.

Resorts did not object to the forfeiture order, the notice says.

The state’s self-exclusion list was designed to help people with gambling problems by allowing them to ban themselves from gambling in Atlantic City casinos and on the internet.

The self-exclusion periods can be for one year, five years or a lifetime.

Rebuck’s latest actions included a $5,000 civil penalty imposed on Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for “failing to recognize that a mini-baccarat dealer dealt 24 of 34 hands incorrectly over a 26-minute time period on June 17, 2016,” according to the state.
