If they try to confiscate the ticket a CALL to gaming to have gaming go tell them to issue a check would involve me not being there. Thus the same end result of getting gaming involved... but I can keep my name out of it (ticket not tied to my name) and I can talk to gaming from another state.



how are you going to cash a check with a fake name?

BINGO: Called the casino in question. According to the call center I can mail the ticket in and they will send a check back... =).



So they are going to receive your ticket in the mail, scan it and see it’s locked , and send out a check regardless ?

Seems to me the fact you mailed it in would just make it more likely that they think something shady happened

Simple, it's not a fake name. We have never done anything illegal and will continue not to do anything illegal. The ticket is not tied to a fake name.

Not really, in my opinion. The woman I just talked to says it happens all the time. I'm going to be mailing it from another state that is not close by, thus it's pretty obvious why it's being mailed in (it would take a plane flight to get back there). Again, in the end I'm understanding that I'll probably have to get gaming involved... but I'm trying to take every little thing I can do in order to avoid that.

Perhaps a cashier person doesn't scan it. Perhaps they do and don't care since they're issuing a check to the name the ticket is tied to. While not extremely likely, these are real possibilities so I might as well free roll my options here before having to get gaming involved.

I didnt say you did, or are you saying if you gave a fake name then it would be illegal?

The only "fake" name that was given was just verbally to the suit that was "walking by" and walked away after 15 seconds of conversation. There was no ID involved, no fake ID, nothing of the sort. Simply a "who are you?" and "I'm X" and "Okay, bye" convo that's it.

So if you had verbally given the name that matched the players card in the machine , then the suit wouldn’t have locked your ticket ?

Buy a fake ID. It's not illegal to show fake ID to a cashier in a casino. ………………….is it?

. My issue here is the casino is trying to set a "trap" to ILLEGALLY obtain my information, so I'm looking to skirt the situation.

If you had been wearing a sports jersey with your name on the back (or whatever name you wish to be) no one could ask you your name like that without looking foolish.

Especially if it said, "I am Joe Smith"

Firstly, nice to see you back!

So, if they mail you a check, I'd assume they could just mail a letter saying you are banned. However, I could see it slipping through the cracks because different people handle it.

This probably means nothing. But I did have to leave a casino quickly due to unwanted attention once and take a ticket with me. I'm pretty sure they were going to 86 me. I came back a couple weeks later. The ticket was not in GREAT shape, as it had been in my wallet for a couple weeks. However, I was surprised the machines wouldn't take it. I wasn't really sure if the ticket was flagged or the machines were picky. But to me, it should have been accepted. It wasn't torn or faded.

I had a buddy cash it at the cage and it went through with no problems. It was for about $250.

Obviously, I told him the situation and paid him and he was cool to deal with it.
