I'm not 100 percent sure but even on High hand for 50 dollars in their poker room they take your name


That's understandable because that isn't paid immediately, correct?

The high hand is paid immediately upon the time period being over

They do not take your name until you actually win and then you must show id - get paid immediately or forfeit your prize

You should ask in this thread so we don't get off topic here: http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/questions-and-answers/gambling/25988-harrahs-bj-cash-bonus-promo/

I didn't understand what that meant either.

Right. But at what time do they do this? When you reveal the hand or at the end of the night? When I dealt charity poker, we did it with the highest hand that was dealt though out the day at closing winning the prize.

Why would they need that? Pay it and move onto the next hand. Its not some jackpot or anything.



Generally things like this are considered promotional wins, not gambling wins, and they have a "cash value". Companies are supposed to track all non-gambling payouts because if they reach $600 for a person over the course of the calendar year, the company must issue you an IRS 1099 for the amount won.

Then how come match plays, free bets, etc., aren't marked "win" or "loss"?

That's reinvestment- it's a totally separate animal. If you win match play or free play or promo chips I have 100 percent signed for that
