I have never gotten a royal payout of $1,200 or greater. I'm curious. I haven't carried a SS card with me in decades. Will casinos require one in order to pay out a $1,200 or greater jackpot? What if I don't have a card?

Nevada no, AC no. Californian probably, unless they find you in their system or they hold 20%.

No, a state-issued ID will be sufficient.

Depends on the casino. Out in the hinterlands, expect to need a driver's license/military ID/passport & a social security card. Also expect their requirements to be posted. You should be able to ask at the cage what their rules are.

If you don't have them with you and that casino requires it for a payout, my experience is they'll hold it 90 days while you get your paperwork together.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I hit for 2400 at Cherokee in NC. They took my driver's license, and a second form of ID. I think my second form was my medical insurance card

You should NEVER carry your social security card with you. A government issued photo ID will be sufficient.

May you need it later this week... twice.

Most casinos use some form of TIN Check system that will verify the name and number match, so you just need a photo ID.

You don't need an ss card on you. You do need the number though. Idk what happens if you don't have an SS #.

I hit a handpay in LV not long ago. Slot lady comes over and asks for my SS card & ID. I say I don't have my SS card are you serious? She says you need one or else taxes and paperwork and other stuff. I say usually I just write my SS # and the casino takes it fine (never hit a w2g at this particular store before). And she was all surprised, like, "Wait you actually memorized that social security number? Wow!!" As if it was completely foreign territory to her to memorize some number. I can't imagine what happens when she's filing out real paperwork at a doctors office or car dealership....

I assumed most people had their SS# memorized. Guess not. I think I know my dad's too, but not 100% sure on that one.

I think you have to be of a certain age to have it memorized.
These days, its an extremely private number.
I went to the University of Maryland in the late 70's.
My student ID number was my social security number.
Back then, since everybody has a unique number, it was used as a personal ID number for all kinds of institutions.
Why create a number when somebody already has a unique number and probably memorized due to using the number a lot.
