For those who want to stay anonymous to the casinos, Rivers scans your ID when getting a players card. When I saw that, I left the line. Not sure about the others.

p.s. for someone that commented... Meadows has 99.54 JoB and 99% other pay tables... They're the machines literally the closest to the poker room glass (unless they AGAIN moved them from the last time I was there).

I would also caution some concern about "reserving" a table for our "private event" as I'd guess they'd ask what the event is for/etc... and I wouldn't want to say Wizard of Vegas where they can get our guest list, etc, etc...



That's what I said last time, I'll probably deleting anything about maybe being banned from there in a week or so.

I've obtained several players club cards in the past year, and I can't think of one that didn't swipe it, but I'm not sure whether or not that actually scans it.

I'll be saving up my plasma donation money and see if I can get a decent bankroll.

NOTE: As to scanning ids... it seems its universal now. The Seminoles here in Florida did not revoke their old players club cards they just rigged the machines to say 'go to a Validation Machine on the perimeter of the casino' and scan your card and your drivers license. This 'linked the card with the official ID' and therefore "validated" it. Most casinos now want real IDs but its probably not for comp-cheating purposes.

I'm thinking I'll approach the Rivers in person this weekend to see how face to face contact works. I will explain the image of poor customer service, but will not explain the reason for our event. Will just say we're furbies(edited: meant furries. They had a big convention in pittsburgh a few years back. Edited again, it's been in Pittsburgh every year for a decade) or something if anyone has any better stories. What do you think the average buy-in on the craps table will be? We're thinking 10-15 people, not including guests. I assume $300 average buy-in about right as lowest and will ask for a $5 minimum. PM me if you have any advice, requests, etc.

Dont you dare say 50-50. We'll get a van and abduct you if we must. You are a cool dude and will be missed if you're not there.

You sure you can't cut out "some sweet young thang" or two? Lol.
