Haha...the gaming authorities. Anywhere except Nevada, that's cute. They should be called the, "Casino Operations Protection Department."



That used to be that here, but they have been more fair lately.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

NJ is pretty good. They certainly don't mind making unpopular decisions against casinos. But, I guess NJ in general is known for pretty zealous regulations.

There is even a team that tests non-gambling (well I guess its kind of gambling depending on how semantic you get) carnival games on boardwalks to make sure that they are fair (the kind of games where you throw balls at bottles, thrown basketballs into set hoops to win stuffed animals etc....)

That has not been my experience with New Jersey. My experience is them not ever returning your phone calls or Emails.

Probably because of right now being short staffed and many staff working remote because of COVID related issues.

And, I would agree with you had the present issue not existed for nearly a year.

I agree with this.

However for on the gaming floor disputes I have had good results.

BTW - every NJ casino has an agent on duty on the gaming floor.

I have had good results from gaming in NJ, NV and MS.

Only two times was I disappointed in NGC. Both time's I just dropped it after their initial visit perhaps had I taken it further I would have won. In once small case the casino changed their mind themselves. The other time I could understand why they didn't make the Bar honor the promotion.

Is that 24/7 that an agent is in duty in every casino at all times?
I honestly did not know that. That makes me respect them even more if that is the case.

It also makes me kind of want that job, that seems like it could be an exciting gig. I guess the downside is you would not be allowed to play recreational in NJ.

Are you sure they still do this? Last I heard that was not the case for some years now.
