I was backroomed only once, at Circus Circus. It
was over a slot my wife played and it wasn't fun.
They were very intimidating and treated us like we
were crooks, when it was their machine that
malfunctioned. The funny part was, my wife is the
most honest person I've ever met, and she was appalled
at being treated like she had done something wrong.

I think there is no case too. If I had more experience about 86s and backrooming, I might be able to avoid this one from happening.
But I hope this thread can help the others. I am surprised that no one has shared their backroom stories in these three years.

Kickass, I think there is some question about the word "lured" that you used.

To the best of your memory, can you recall the actual words used? And the tone used? Were there multiple persons there? Were you lured with intimidation or lured with the promise of cocktails?

Someone who was lured with intimidation might certainly have a case. Threats do not have to be physical, or even spoken. Even the presence of several "guards" could definitely be intimidating, and when you say you were lured perhaps you really meant you were intimidated into going with them?

If indeed you wanted to cash out your chips and leave, but they insisted on having a discussion first you weren't lured but you were pressured and intimidated.

So again, please give us as much precise detail as possible. This could be very informative even without telling us the name of the casino.

When we were backroomed, they kept asking the same
questions over and over. Are you sure it was a $50 bill.
Are you sure this is your story. Over and over and over.
It was insane, and they had no humor at all about it. Told
us we could go to jail about 20 times. After 30min, the
fat one walked in, laid a 50 on the table without a word,
and walked out. Not a word. We checked out and haven't
been back.

In the casino floor, three guys with the business attire were standing about 10 yards from the BJ table. One of them came to me and tapped my shoulder. This guy basically did all the talking in the casino floor. I went to them and they told me I am 86ed permanently.
I told them that "I understand. So that, can I cash out and leave?" And that guy said "Yes, but we need to talk to you first" using a polite tone. Then, I said " OK, can I at least color up and carry the chips?" and he paused then said "Yes". I thought we are going to a quiet area in the casino floor to tell me about the future trespassing citation if I come back. But we went to the backroom and the room has a bench with the straps. The straps look like the ones that you used in the airplane. After that, there were two guys and one female in the room. I also noticed that there were couple security guard outside the door later. I pretended that I was not nervous but I was very nervous. When they wanted to take a picture of me, I walked quickly to the door but I noticed there were two security guards outside. The security guards might be a bluff but it works on me and I did not walk out from the door.

There is no way ANY casino person should be taking you to the holding room for any reason that you had described. As I mentioned before the only time I would understand is if you had commited a crime, gaming or otherwise or if you had been unruly, aggressive or argumentative.

I know that wording and situational awareness is everything here but to take you to the holding room......no, there is never a need for that!

No bet restriction, no done for the day, straight to the back room? The reason no one has shares backroom stories is probably because it is extremely rare. I've been "invited" to a few back rooms but never went and it took a lot more than having a couple of thousand dollars on the table.

Kickass, so you had no idea they were taking you to a security room? You were surprised there was a bench with restraints? there were several people in the room plus two guards standing outside? You were nervous. Were you also fearful? Did you feel intimidated?

Wow. Maybe the "lawyers" here won't agree with me, but I would report that not only to whatever gaming officials there are, but I would also file a police report (the real police) and talk to a lawyer. You would want your side of the story "on the record" with the police and with gaming just in case there is a pattern of this happening before.

There was no need to take you into a backroom with a bench and restraints and to have guards posted outside the door, with others inside the room with you. Just the sight of a bench with restraints is intimidating enough. The presence of guards and others adds to the intimidation. They just as easily could have let you cash out, hand you a piece of paper that explains their trespass rules, and walked you to the door.

The overall winning was in the low 5 figure range.
