I'm willing to bet that the Wynn loses.

Double or nothing. Even willing to break it into two sets if you lose. I assume the trial will be in Nevada ??
Never ever bet against the house for big money in Nevada !

If you don't know why you're getting trespassed or arrested out of a casino, you're basically a clueless moron who should listen to your Legal Aid lawyer.
That simple.
By by the Rules and You Are Fine. :)


Oh, bullshit. I've been marched out of a major Las Vegas casino and later trespassed when I was doing nothing more than playing video poker, absolutely nothing unusual about my actions either then or beforehand, and they refused to tell me why and I still don't know. A friend of mine was trespassed at the same place two hours into a video poker session, was completely bewildered by it, and eventually after numerous phone calls was told it was because "you only play the promotion days". That was his fourth time there, of which two were on promotion days. And anyway, like that's breaking any kind of rule, or worthy of threatening criminal charges if he shows up on-property. Another acquaintance of mine sat down at a bar to play video poker at a medium-size near-Strip casino and had security descend and trespass him without explanation. Several phone calls later he got told that it was because he got drunk and made a scene the previous night. He wasn't there the previous night, and he never drinks, but I guess the guy on the tapes looked like him.

the house rules are written on my lips if you don't know the rules. Don't slide the dice


Great! We agree that it's the dealer or floorman's responsibility to state the rules. Personally I've played craps maybe three times in my life, and tossed the dice off the table maybe a half-dozen times. My knowledge of rules on how to shoot is limited to "don't use both hands", because the first time I picked up the dice I used both hands and got immediately barked at, which I appreciate. I did not get arrested, which I also appreciate. However, if it weren't for this discussion, I would have no idea that it's OK to try and control the dice by superstition - it's OK to try to control the dice by throwing harder or softer - it's OK to try to control the dice by setting them - it's OK to try to control the dice by avoiding having them tumble off-axis - but trying to control the dice by avoiding having them tumble at all is not only against the rules but CLEARLY a felony even if they tolerate you doing it the first dozen times, as in the current case.

I've often participated in promotions that involve a prize wheel. The casino's intent is for a random prize to come up. I will often spin carefully to try to get my desired prize to come up. Is that "altering the elements of chance...which determine the results of a game" and thus a felony? I've never heard anyone suggest such an idea before.

Casinos operate much like the Nazi's did. Bust
into your house at 3am, interrogate you, throw
you into a prison camp, and never tell you why.
Its paranoia run amok. Dan says 'Oh, you know
why', you cheater, you. But if you don't, they
refuse to clue you in because they're terrified
of a lawsuit. The casinos position is, throw you
out now, trespass you, and worry about the
consequences later. These people weren't hired
for their IQ's, you know..

I agree there are sometimes terrible mistakes made (mistaken identity, 86-ing people for playing on promo days), but by and large, most good players don't get hassled at all. Comparing casinos to Nazi's of the Third Reich is just way out there.

What's the name of that "law" that says something like "any internet argument that goes on long enough will include one side/person being compared to Hitler"? I'm sure someone here can give the proper quote and name of the "law."

Do I get 86d?
