We're meeting with two other couples in Colorado and everyone plans to go out to the hills gambling at some point. I know they have some weird laws (i.e., don't pick up a ticket from the floor or play abandoned credits) but, does Colorado have a problem with a married couple playing off one spouse's account/card?

A couple of the spouses don't play much and typically uses a duplicate card from their spouse when they play slots. My host (from out of state) shrugs and says it doesn't matter to him or the casino chain since I'm married, but I didn't know if that is another weirdness that might get someone arrested in Colorado for violating the law.

The casino you will be playing at is in the best position to answer. The state may not have a law but the casino might have a rule.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

If you are only worried about getting arrested and not rules then you probably are okay. Google Credit card laws for Colorado. That's usually where casino card laws are as well (they usually group them together as "access devices" although each state is different).

Is this an Indian casino? That changes everything.

Thanks, billryan and darkoz.
It'll likely be a couple of the corporate casinos in Blackhawk, since one of the three of us mostly plays Ameristar. I'll definitely double check with a local employee, but my out-of-state host acted like it was a chain-wide 'we don't care'.

And I'll definitely avoid tribal casinos in Colorado. With both Colorado and tribes having odd policies, I can't imagine the combination of the two.
