I think, and have been told by persons in the industry, that most casinos know within a hundred dollars what every one at the tables comes (buys in) and goes with. The ones with a history have a history; the very, very few who start winning, and keep winning, just show them the door. Some places do this, too, after, say, a few weeks. It seems to me that most just let them play because even the so-called gambling experts end up losing at least their time, in that dreaded long run, where it's more about seeing what wasn't accounted for; and end up sucking in all their "friends" and others along for the "ride". While the people who write the books and run the forums, etc, try to convince themselves in front of their "friends" that someone else is getting rich by it, as well. Always "something big going on".Quote: TomG
In Las Vegas it's not that common for them to investigate these too heavily, especially at table games. There are something like 100 casinos, most of which range in value from $100 million to over $1 billion. If a player is beating them for an average of $100 every other week, they don't care enough to look into it. And even if they did, most of the time the player who has an advantage still loses more then half the time, making it hard to add up all their wins and losses.
It's amazing because every DI, system player, positive energy player, voodoo guy, fuzzy math guys, all the guys on the roulette and baccarat forums are making their $100 to $1k per day, and that's not including the guys claiming much higher profits.
The casinos don't seem to be interested them guys at all. Yet, they will sweat and toss out guys with a small mathematical advantage making a few bucks an hour on something as silly as playing VP on a crappy point multiplier day.

In the last post on the AP blog, he says
a good + EV way to get comped is to
run $10K thru the video poker machines
and lose about $75. This should get you
a couple hundred in rooms and meals.
But how long does that take, I've never
played video poker. Time is money too,
especially if you don't live in Vegas.
