So I made the Vegas trip to cash in the holiday points from MGM. I do the usual look around and I find myself inÖCosmopolitan. I know Vegas APs realize whatís coming. So I end up winning like 12k on Buffalo Link(only game that was actually quite good to me on this trip. This one was Lightning version). So after Link I find a 19 blue pig from 6 bucks. As Iím playing, dude in a suit says Iím ďlooking for bonusesĒ so get out. I hear from friends this is how Cosmo is but I was annoyed. Apparently MGM is in the process of buying them for the last two years but they still push their stupid Identity card

That casino has tried different tactics with me such as, no discount on a session loss because...you're up for the year, you're way up lifetime, cutting off certain categories of comps on a winning trip, trying to not allow me to pull all of my credit line at once, trying to shut down my line if I've pulled a marker and am way up ("pay back the marker...now! you don't need it), and various contradictory approaches that represent no doubt a team effort to try to put obstacles in my way. But since I'm playing above board and no one really knows why I am winning, no one has ever said anything close to Get Out to me. The worst they have said is a sort of complaining, "you're always winning" and this comes from upper management lower management seems quite friendly to me.

I am interested in how it will be once MGM takes over fully because I am sure that at least some of the above policies will not remain in force.

There have been times when I have played there a lot, other times I have left them alone for long periods. There are many other casinos in Vegas.

They just don't like you is all. 🤣

Your story isn't quite clear to me, but I don't push buttons anyway. Tables games only.

I donít have any personal experience with them, but this is very much in line with other accounts Iíve heard.

I quit table games completely once I was banned from Foxwoods for blackjack. I feel the reward isnít worth the heat. So basically I won a ton of Lightning Buffalo. Once that was done, I looked around for other slot opportunities and eventually got the proverbial tap on the shoulder when I was playing one. Do I get the tap if I wouldnít have won? I think so.

I'd ask the suit how much the Megabucks progressive is. When he doesn't know, "Oh, you have to go check?"

It's visual information offered by the slot manufacturer and available to the next person that sits. Sometimes the visuals are hidden and require a button press to be seen.

It seems Vegas is the only place that slot hustlers are watched. I almost wish they would do this out east. You see the same ones and they literally race from machine to machine and you know theyíre hustlers cause they fit a certain profile. I mean Iím not going to say I wouldnít get noticed too. I donít have a local spot. Iím not in the same casino more than once or twice a week and usually not for very long. I donít even hustle anymore cause thereís so much competition and every game seems to just be bad now. Which basically brings me to my conclusion. If people are spending hours just sitting behind people and checking machines and never playing, then kick them out. But if someone checks stuff and plays then they shouldnít be bothered.

They are watched in Atlantic City to some degree. I know people that have been kicked out of borgata. Itís not so much the actual hustling but itís the lack of tact. Straight up making other players uncomfortable so they get off

AC is the absolute worst. I've literally seen the same ones for years. Although I dont go to Borgata much and that would make sense since they are the sharpest. Maybe you know, those that fit a certain profile and tend to be the worst offenders have immunity and others get kicked out. Again making the rounds and leaving or actually playing something is fine but the campers need to go.

Youíve probably seen me around town then lol. But yeah I do the rounds and play poker as well. Itís just the worst to sit behind for a monster session and then they complete the play. So painful. Or worse they leave a play and you get crushed
