After they said you were 86'ed, you should have simply stated, "I'm going to cash out & leave," and done just that.

If it was Indian be very careful. You can lose your rights on sovereign land and things can go south quickly.



I really don't understand why people think they lose their rights on Indian land. Indian sovereign rights end with federal and state laws.

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.

I was at the Isle in Blackhawk one crowded Saturday night. On way there this new cocktail waitress was not looking where she was going and I actually bumped into a seated player. I said something like, Watch it , hon. And nicely at that.

About 30 minutes later I get a tap on the shoulder and this suit asks to talk yo me. No bigee, until I notice 2 security guys against the wall. He asks me if I had a "problem" with a cocktail waitress. I gave him a puzzled look. " Never volunteer information" my Dad always told me. He says someone knocked into the waitress, causing her to spill a tray full of drinks. I just shrugged my shoulders.
Then this big security guard decided to get in on the act. Gets in my face and says " You fit her description "

I said " Barney, go watch the tapes. " turned my back and walked 3 steps back to BJ table. Waiting to be touched again and wondering
if the cops I knew when I worked at the Uereka were on duty. But nothing happened and I played for a little while longer, just because. Not saying I would have popped anybody if they touched me on the way back to the table, but you just never know what you will do sometimes till you do it.

Blackhawk jail is still next to the Eureka casino. Doubt I would have had to do anything more than post a bond. The Barney Fife syndrome is very prevalent among wanna-be cops.

Can only imagine the reports security writes praising their efforts at protecting the casino's money.

Does every casino have a bench with straps in the back room? Am I the only one who wants to put up a big "group w" sign over such a bench?

In my one and only backroom experience, which followed a foolish but very innocent cash-related move on my part, I was "lured" to the back room by a guy in a suit who was carrying my cashout slips. I could have refused to follow him, but I'd have forfeited the money.

They took us down a long hallway to a room
that looked like Louie DePalma's office on Taxi.
Glass and very small. My wife was terrified when
they started talking about jail and wanted to leave.
I said no way, lets see how far they go. Women..

Women : I finally got Josie to call people jerks when they are acting like one. Gets them just as mad as calling him an asshole, but
is more polite. Love to use that word on management in grievance meetings. Last time I remember using it was when
Denver office was closing and got this phone call from Phoenix 2nd level. Wanting to know why only 2 people in ALL OF
DENVER were working on tickets. This was at 2pm and we were to switch control to Phoenix at 3pm. Was Saturday, 2 guys
called in sick. I told him it was because there were only 2 guys workin in all of Denver and 1 was busy talking to a jerk, but no longer.

He was hollering something when I hung up. 10 minutes to 3 and my second level came in from home. She asked me why
I called him a jerk and I said because he was acting like one with that all of Denver remark. She wanted me to call him and
apologize. Yeah, like that was gonna happen.

When I came back to work Sunday half expected my key card to not let me in the testboard. That's how some managers tell
an employee he is no longer employed. Some places just walk you to your desk , watch you pack up your shit and walk you
out the door. Some just have the security guard do it.

Always bothered me that whenever there was a bomb threat, it was the custodians ( lowest paid employees ) who were
to walk thru building looking for suspicious packages.

We checked out and haven't been back.



EvenBob, I don't want to make light of your experience because it was probably very unpleasant to see your innocent wife be falsely accused. But look on the bright side: Circus Circus is an absolute shithole, so at least it's not much of a sacrifice to never set foot in that dreadful place for as long as you live. I'd be genuinely frustrated if I had to avoid Bellagio or Wynn forever, but a Circus Circus boycott would be easy (and amusing).

I rather enjoyed it, actually. I wanted to see how
far they would go. I had always heard about
backrooming. They acted just like cops on TV,
trying 15 times to get you to change your story.
They thought we were con artists, so we were
guilty in their minds. They were never friendly,
never apologetic. It was just like you see on TV
when people get arrested and grilled.
