Here is my advice:

The issue clearly is he was using someone else players card otherwise he could just show ID (he said this was a slot play and he gave a name that wasnt his.)

If its legit then he was using that players card with permission. Get that player to come down and show ID when cashing out the voucher.

Most likely the voucher has been flagged with instructions to simply check the ID matches the name on the players card in the machine when it was being played.

Once the names match, the cashier will pay out.

I doubt a picture will be compared from that day. But if so, I would go with this person so they see u guys together. Then if they ask why you were the one playing just say u always play together. One guy just stepped away for the moment.

Either way it shouldn't be a big deal if you do it that way

New information. You didn't say that he was playing with someone elses card. If he didn't use freeplay from the card, just say someone must have left it in the machine. If he did use freeplay, suck it up and take your medicine or just abandon the ticket.

Here is my two cents. I was just show up yourself and cash it. They can ask for ID, but only a law enforcement officer can demand it. They may say "no ID, no money." In that case, you will have a choice to make. If you choose to not present ID, I guess the next step would be to complain to Gaming.

I'll PM you some further advice I can't make public.

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.

The ticket is defintitely going to be too much for that, though it's not a monster ticket, I highly doubt I could buy a $5 drink and they'd give me > $500 and < $1200 in change =/. I like the effort though =P.

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.

Oh ZCore, what happen to us... I've always enjoyed your posting and rarely disagreed with you, though it has happened. I did nothing illegal but that doesn't mean I want to play the casinos ILLEGAL game of "holding my money hostage" in exchange for my information. They do not have the right to demand ID from me to cash a ticket. The casino is trying to do something illegal here, not me (as is ALWAYS the case). So I'm "taking my medicine" and trying to figure out a way around their ILLEGAL actions as to not even have to deal with them.

Current thoughts: Couple small options to explore, but what I'm probably going to do is wait a month or two and go cash the ticket and have them call gaming if they refuse to pay. I'll probably call gaming before hand and notify them and have the guys number 100% ready or hell even walk up to the counter with gaming on the phone for them to tell them to pay me. Anything to expedite the process and immediately throw the casino off balance by showing I know my rights and that they're not going to get my ID.

I'd prefer not to =/. Are there state specific laws you're referring to possibly? It's not out west.

Romes, were you using your own card or someone elses? If someone elses did you collect freeplay? If this is in Nevada I know many of the Gaming Enforcement agents that you will likely talk to.

The phone number for Nevada Gaming Enforcement is: 702-486-2020. You should keep this in your phone.

It was not out west. I'd rather not discuss the play details (look what Axel's done to me). Was just hoping someone has had a similar issue and they had some clever way around it. I think the "Mailing in the ticket" is holding as the most clever for now then. I have had casinos that let you do that so long as it's not over like $1200, which this ticket is not... I still need to call today now to verify.

Yes, PA/NJ/NY/MD in many cases have significant difference in gaming voucher laws.

If you want to PM the state I might be able to provide helpful info.

If it was PA, be very careful. They can be strict and a pain in the butt.
