I used to be a regular at Mt. Airy Casino in the Poconos, however recent events have made me my take my play elsewhere and avoid them whenever possible. Unfortunately, yesterday I was in the area for a Super Bowl party and after the most boring SB bowl game ever, I sauntered over to Mt. Airy as it was 30 mins away from his house.

They've implemented a new policy that in order to get a complimentary beverage, you MUST have a player's card and have it inserted in a slot machine or logged in at a table showing some play accumulated. Now I understand why this has been done and it makes sense considering all the vagrants and bus people that mooch free alcohol and never play a penny.

But when I'm clearly sitting at a table with chips on the felt and I ask for a beer, I don't need to be hassled with questions like "Are you registered?" and "what's your name?" as they waste endless seconds looking for the card info on their company provided I Phone 4. Only to be told "I can't find the name" and I have to point and tell them "Look he's holding my card!" Only to be told by them, "I'll come back and if you're registered by then you can have a drink!"

What a bad way to handle something that is so easy to fix, but alas Mt. Airy has let me down numerous times and this is just another one on the list.

Wait until they surround you with 7 security guards behind the table to 86 you. Lets see how you really feel about them when that happens. That place is a sweat shop. I ran well vs them in a short span which didn't help the cause, but they're idiots.
Any private business open to the PUBLIC (ie. droned out casinos) cannot have a criminal trespass enforced against an individual without GOOD CAUSE (Disruptive or Disorderly conduct). You will never go to prison for being thrown out of a casino for legal advantage play and then returning because it's simply unconstitutional 'as applied' to the individual. 'As applied' constitutional issues must FIRST be raised in DISTRICT COURT (trial court) to have it thrown out. You CANNOT raise it on APPEAL This is the best kept secret in the world of casinos not just in Vegas but everywhere in the country. Thank me later.

It has just as much to do with Pennsylvania’s arcane Liquor Control Board, probably requiring them to track who gets free drinks.

I never liked Mount Airy.

Maybe it was the overwhelming stench of cigarettes.

Mount Airy just always seemed second rate to me.

Using another persons card would not eliminate the inconvenience of them checking to see if significant play qualifies him for a drink

What they need to do is automate it. So the card in the machine allows a person to call a beverage girl after x amount of play

At live tables they should just be more reliant on the dealer or pitboss saying its ok

There is a LOT more to the story than we were aware of.....

https://www.philly.com/business/pgcb-fines-mount-airy-casino-k-alcohol-policy-violation-drunk-driver-fatality-20190206.html

Looks like they are trying to monitor everyone's alcohol consumption, hence the need for the players card.

I watched a casino all but poor the alcohol down the throat of a person hemorrhaging cash at their tables. Some places are truly despicable in their actions.

Sorry for the late response, but I can now answer your question confidently. Yes, the card must be yours as they are monitoring the habits of each patron and recording them in their system.

So should you give another player card that does not belong to you and they find you using another player card(whether yours or not) they will ID you on the spot and lock your info & description to ONE card.

I was a little surprised they did this to me as I have been a loyal patron of Mount Airy for 10 years and NEVER had a drinking/cheating/security issue with them. I asked them is this because I reported to them to the Better Business Bureau and they had no idea what I was talking about. But I suspect that someone there was told to keep a close eye one my gaming activities.

You cant AP sober?

Im not trying to be funny. Can you AP using other people's cards and just not order a drink? You only get tripped up (linked physically to the card) when ordering?
