This didn't happen to me personally, but I heard someone arranged a meeting for the first time in a casino.

One of the people was playing a strange game about where he was, but the other person was under the impression that he was meeting a man but in reality the other person was a woman.

I think one of them ended up seeing the other but didn't know it because of that, so they didn't meet, and it ended up being a huge waste of time.

Yep, we missed out on having little WizardOfNathans running around.

I get dirty looks and catch nasty remarks now and then because I play the dark side on the craps table. Once in awhile somebody curses at me outright when my 7 hits (usually when they're down to the felt). Nothing worse.

Was in a small BJ tournament at the Trop in Laughlin. Forget the prizes but I think First might have been $500-$1,000.
Second and last round before the Final Table. There were limits on the bets until this last hand. One woman has had a great tournament, and is a lock for the finals- where everyone starts even. She puts out a token bet while everyone else goes all in. I'm first to act and draw an Ace/Seven vs Dealer Ten. I hit and draw another ten.
Everyone else has a pat hand and the dealer turns over a six. Had I stood, he'd have busted. Needless to say, the next card is a four and the dealer wins every hand. As he is scooping up my chips he reminds everyone that had I stood, they all would have won. None of us would have moved on anyway so it was kind of moot but this one guy starts mouthing off to me. He's tall and lean, dressed in overalls and quickly becomes a dick. Floor guy tries to quiet him down but he gets more aggressive.
First guard is a tub of lard who is pretty useless. Next two are a bit better but the guy is still making threats and trying to get around them. Then this monster of a guard shows up. Six six if he's an inch and a bit on the portly side, but not someone to screw with. In very short order the guy is down ,hogtied and dragged out, all the while threatening to kill me.
He never followed through.

Oh, I forget an oldie but a goodie which mostly happens at the Blackjack table.

"Dammit, stop eating my card!" Curses the guy on your left

I'm sure we've all met this guy since it's a franchise

I had a guy presumably attempt to steal my bag(Not my purse, ;))when I stepped away for a few seconds to get change out of the nearby TITO machine. I didn't see my bag when I came back and I asked out loud "Where's my bag?" A guy hesitated for a few seconds before admitting he had it(He had put it on the opposite side of himself) and nervously said something like "I was just holding this bag to give to a Casino Worker!" :/ He gave it back to me and I thanked him. :/ :)

An attractive woman flirted with me while I was in MGM; initially I was flattered, smugly thinking "I've still got it:" then it dawned on me that she was a whore.

I was playing pai gow while waiting for the wifey to wake up from her nap. I always leave a red chip and a few dollars on the felt for the dealer to collect commission. A guy left of me had previously won a modest hand with a bonus, so the dealer laid out a bunch of chips on the felt. He then took my commission chips, which I called him out on. He then called the pit over and claimed it's his chip. The dealer backed me up, yet he didn't back down. He requested the eye on the sky to review. Everybody at the table was pissed that the action has stopped. I was fed up, I told him to just take the chip, and he became passive aggressive and said no.

After 10 minutes, the pit got a call and told the man that they were my chips. He then gave me an attitude and told me to put my chips on the other side. I waited for my drink, cashed out and left. Some people hate being wrong and will not apologize.

That reminds me of one of my first times playing craps... this guy next to me was saying something about a stack of winnings on odds in a thick accent that I couldn't make out so I just smiled and shrugged. He gets really angry at me about that and, eventually, I realize he wants me to take the winnings off the felt so it won't be confused with his bet. Plot twist: They were HIS winnings.
