So you guys are safe using wizard of odds site while you're in a hotel casino's wifi? No backoffs?

I specify it has to be the kind of wifi where it forces you to give room number and last name. I stayed at Luxor the other day and all it asked was "check here to accept terms and conditions"

If you are uncomfortable and really believe using the wifi was the problem, then don't use the wifi. lol.

I'd be interested in the answer to other questions though.

Do you play rated? If yes, what happened last couple of times you played this property rated? Any big wins? Any long sessions, even without a win, that you cycled through your bet spread a couple times?

What about where you played before this? You mentioned Luxor. In recent play at another casino, did you score a big win, or play rated and cycle through bet spread a few times?

There are issues of privacy at play here. I don't think a casino would risk having it disclosed that they monitored internet activity and took actions as a result.

What would regular patrons feel if they understood their porn website activities may have been monitored?

Logging into banking information from your hotel website?

I don't think the casinos would risk something like that getting out just to stop some AP play.

I was thinking the same too. Every wifi connection should have "Privacy policy" and "Terms and conditions". Did you read rio's T&C in their wifi, and in it, does it allow them to spy on you? If it does, then they probably do spy on you. If it doesn't, then they probably legally can't. If it doesn't say they can spy on you and you're sure they backed you off because you visited WoO, you can probably sue the casino, i think?

The closest anything to this has ever come is once my bank contacted me after I used a hotel WiFi and forced me to change my PW, saying that login was insecure and could have been monitored. Somehow the bank detected something about whatever WiFi I had just used. But even then the bank wasn't worried about the hotel itself accessing the WiFi they just meant that identity thieves in house could have broken into that Wifi network. This happened a few years ago, and as I recall, it actually was at a Vegas casino hotel.

Ever since, I always use a VPN when accessing hotel WiFi, but I'm not even sure if that would help as far as if someone were able to access the Wifi from the back end.

Over all though, there is no way anyone working at a casino knows or would care what you use the hotel WiFi for as far as deciding whether or not to ban you from Blackjack play.

The lawsuit would be for invasion of privacy. Not specifically AP or WOV related.

Played at about 6 different strip casinos. Rated. Scored decent but not big wins. Average session is 1.5-2h. Bet spread 1-8, starts at 2, goes down to 1 at -2TC, 8 at 5+TC.

Once again, never had a problem with everything else I did. the only thing different this time is using wifi to access AP sites.
