So will this be a way for people to disguise their identity when they are inside a casino?

I thought they would just require people to pull down their mask for a second at the entrance and perhaps after sitting down at a gaming table.

(Or maybe you have to wear a photograph of the bottom half of your face on the mask, heh.)
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Wearing a medical mask inside a casino is nothing new. I believe facial recognition has more to do with measurements of the eyes, distance, nose, like that.

Really... have you ever seen a player in a medical mask stopped or questioned?

Here in the states, its very rare to find people wearing masks in casinos. But going forward, it will become the norm.

How many and how often are these casinos actually using facial recognition in order to catch and foil Advantage players?

How accurate is the facial recognition? From my understanding it has a lot of false positives.

Assuming the facial recognition is good enough.
I have to assume that they can adjust the software to account for face masks. I'm sure the facial recognition companies that servicing the casinos are working on this problem as we speak.

Assuming there's no facial recognition it's certainly going to be easier for Advantage players who get backed off.
I would assume you'll be able to come back much quicker and not worry about being noticed with a simple change to your wardrobe, hair color/ Style, add or subtract glasses etc. Add in some shoe lifts.

Usually people with Cancer, Emphysema, or other illness would wear a surgeon's mask while sitting at a table or slot machine.

Some times, people who can't stand the smell or inhalation of cigarette/cigar/vape smoke will wear them for their stay to be tolerable.

I noticed a few regulars start wearing them where I frequent, some even refusing to remove them at all while sitting at the table after a pit boss requested it.

Guess now, they would not be able to question it and would have to just let them wear it at their own discretion. I would think providing a valid ID would be the way to get around removing the mask for "identification purposes."

Basically facial recognition works primarily in the area of the eyes and adjacent to the eyes.

Almost everyone has been identified I would have to think within this country, so when police have video, are they just pretending like they don't know whom the people really are? A Vegas casino, a Walmart, a mug shot, someone has to be tagged somewhere, it's kind of hard to believe there are people getting away red handed but I guess they are. I won't even litter in broad daylight let alone commit some premeditated crime.

If your theory is correct, , EVERY looter will be identified and caught.
