POLL QUESTION: What's your favorite thing to do in a casino?


Well, I haven't been around much due to tons and tons of increased work, and because of the crap that hopefully no longer exists on these forums =)... but I've got a fun one, related to gambling, that hopefully can spark some discussion:

So I was playing a machine (which one, irrelevant)... it was an AP play (of course). Basically some suit, by himself no security, etc, walked by behind me... kind of like a little bit of a slow walk. Then he went to an employee podium in the middle of the machines (presumably that's their login to the system to see what's going on on the machines). He then came over to me and randomly just asked me my name, to which I replied X. ...not my real name =). He was like "Okay" and walked away. Clearly something was up, so I didn't run instantly (don't let them think you're spooked) but I did leave somewhat shortly after.

I cashed my ticket out, and just kept it and got out of there. I went back on the next shift (since this was on a trip and I was leaving the next day) to cash the ticket out, and low and behold the ticket is locked. So he must have looked up the ticket number I cashed out and disabled the ticket, which means you have to take it up to the counter to cash it... and I'm a betting man so I'd bet when I go to do that there's going to be a note on the ticket that says "demand ID" or something of that effect.

So now I have this ticket, for an amount I'd not like to burn nor disclose, and I have the fun option of asking you guys if you have any kinky legal ideas for offloading it. Current options are:

1) Some places let you mail in tickets if you're out of state and happen to leave with a ticket. I'm going to try to follow up with them tomorrow to see if this is an option... Mail in the ticket, and get a check back in the mail, and of course use an address/name that's not mine.

2) Call gaming, ask them if the casino has the right to ID me for cashing out, etc, and have gaming go with me... or have gaming sign something saying "Yeah you can't demand ID for a cash out" and then go up and take the bull by the horns at the cage.

3) Try to have someone else, NON AP, cash it for me... butttt it would be putting them in a shifty situation. If it's a friend that doesn't ever go to casinos, then the worst may be they get banned from the casino? But still, I'm sure not a fun situation to put a friend in...

I'm on EST, so it's 4:20am here (heh)... so I'm going to bed, but I will respond when I get up tomorrow and throughout the day. Any good ideas here people? =)
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Get a drink or make some other purchase at a business the casino runs. Ask if they can take the ticket for payment and give you the balance. I would do it at a bar. Unless, of course, the ticket value is too much for that.

Number one: while interesting this article has nothing to do with what Romes was doing (i am certain although I dont know what he was doing)

Number two: the article has some upsetting errors particularly the last paragraph where it says some customers were caught doing criminal behavior such as "not providing valid ID after winning a jackpot over $1000"

Hmmmm.

I'm pretty sure this is not allowed.

They probably already have your photo so if it is something they believe is serious, you may already be burned at that casino. I would wait a while before cashing the ticket. Go back in two weeks or so and wal around the casino and play a little. See if anyone approaches you. If no one does, then try to cash it. What jurisdiction is this in?

I doubt Gaming will give you any paperwork. What they will usually do is say to call them if there is a problem. I would probably have four or five tickets to cash when I went to the cage, The cashier might just think it is some kind of mistake if the other tickets all cash out okay,

Good luck.

Thats horrible advice.

Picture or no picture the voucher is flagged and will alert the csshier. There wont be any "I made a mistake" excuses.

What mistake anyway? "Oh, sorry that's not mine. It must have gotten mixed up with my legit vouchers?"

Thst would be even worse

Besides, its highly unlikely they have his photo. What they are trying to do is save surveillance the wasted time since this is an ID players card issue. They are trying to lure him into the trap of cashing out a flagged voucher.

Oh what s tangled web we weave...

Man up and cash the ticket if you did nothing illegal or against their terms of service.

If you did, then you take the loss. Part of the game.
