Simple solution: tell them you want to play the machine and they need to yield it to you (for free).

If they refuse, call security.

Problem solved.



Yeah, I don't see why this is a big problem, or how the scam would even be successful. The person squatting on the machine has zero claim to anything.

Some of them here will have a host lock the machine for as long as they need, hours sometimes, to go leave the casino to find more money. I've never got onto a good "must hit by" machine because of this.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

I am not a machine player and certainly don't know anything about vulturing, but "bums" who have hosts????

I must really be missing something here.

As much as these scrubs play, they have a high tier card.

Surprised? When you're in Las Vegas someday take a good look at who is lined up at the door to the Diamond Lounge at the Flamingo itching & tweaking to get in right away at the first moment it opens. Even without being local and acquainted with some of them (beyond their cover stories for suckers & social workers), for any clear-eyed reasonably observant person I don't think it would really be necessary to know them that well individually to make a pretty good guess about the lives of at least some of them.

Here's a little hint: some of those Fabulous VIP Diamond Card guests, including some I can think of that have been that way for years, don't always do a thorough job of shaking off the twigs and leaves. Including some members right here on this forum.

Cause a scene, maybe get the both of you tossed.

I hate it when they sit next to you and demand money when you win on a slot.

That's what the Service Button is for. :) Though it's best to just be firm and tell them off instead because a lot of service button aren't worth Jack. In Hialeah the indoor floor non smoking Service Button is great. I have accidentally pressed the Service Button many a time and the Casino staff was there within a minute. The smoking section(A separate section than the main non smoking indoor section) Service Button is crap however. You have to manually flag down a Casino Staff Member. In Miami Jai Alai, their Service Button is crap. I remember a woman kept staring at my machine and not playing, presumably wanting me to get off the machine. I pressed Service Button to report her, and they NEVER came. I finally had to tell her off myself and tell her something like,"I'm really not comfortable having you watching my machine." She left. So it's best at times to just tell them off yourself and not use the Service Button.

Is it ethical to scam a scammer? Wouldn't seem right, but otherwise they'll rip someone off, and the only thing they lose is an opportunity to scam.



Slightly OT, but a few years back, I stumbled upon a website that talks about the Nigerian scam artists and has email records of how people had actually scammed them. I tried it and after about 3-4 months of correspondence with one of them, actually got them to send three different payments of $20, $20 and $10 to me in hopes of the "big payday" that was promised him. It took patience, creativity and multiple email accounts to pull this off and afterwards, I felt no remorse in scamming the scammer.
