ATLANTIC CITY - (AP) - New Jersey is extending its self-exclusion list to allow people to ban themselves from online betting.

The action comes with Internet gambling set to begin in just over two weeks. Advocates are worried about a spike in compulsive gambling.

New Jersey, like many other states, allows people who feel they have a gambling problem to place their names on a list of those who are not allowed to enter any of Atlantic City's 12 casinos.

The state Gaming Enforcement Division is automatically extending the list to cover Internet gambling as well. People already on the exclusion list for casinos do not have to do anything to be included in the online self-exclusion list.

But people can also sign up for an online-only ban.
