I found it quicker than I thought.

I was also wrong about the time frame. It is if your account is inactive for 2 years not 1. And they did not give any warning. They sent an email that said the following

"This notice is to inform you that your Borgata online gaming account associated with this email address is considered inactive s no activity has been recorded for 2 years.
In accordance with NJ gaming enforcement regulations and our TAC any remaining funds in this account will be considered dormant and the funds will be forfeited"

So the part that I think is ridiculous on the B is there was no warning prior. Maybe a 30 day notice? They also have the persons home address so why cant they just cut a check and send it?

The part of the customer that is at fault. This is written in their TAC (at least they are saying it is but since it is like 90 pages long none of us read the entire thing) and it has been 2 years. He had plenty of time to get the money out. You should never leave the money in there that long anyways. You can also cash out once out of state, you just cant wager while out of state so there was an opportunity to get the money.

If you came to my house for a weekend and left money behind, I'd consider it abandoned after two years.
If I left something in a hotel room, I wouldn't expect it to there two years later.
At some point, people need a little personal responsibility.

Lincoln County, home to much of Area 51 , is preemptively declaring a state of emergency for the weekend of September 20th.
Authorities there believe there is a good possibility outsiders may overwhelm the services the rural county can provide.
They will be issuing warnings to anyone entering Lincoln County that basic needs, such as food and gas will not be available, nor are there hotels or campgrounds to fit the tens of thousands they now expect.

What if I give you money to hold for me, or we enter into some kind of business deal . During that time I have some tragic accident. Should you be able to just keep my money and say, oh well, too bad so sad?

The proper thing for the casinos to do is to send the money to the state under unclaimed property and close your account. I might be willing to accept some type of a fair processing or maintenance fee, or whatever you want to call it. Maybe the bank should be able to confiscate your money if you don't have any activity.
What about utility companies, maybe they should be able to keep your money.
I really don't get it. Most businesses do not engage in this type of shady practice. I really don't understand why casinos, who for the most part, are already raping peoples wallets can get away with this.

I can't believe you or anyone else thinks it's remotely acceptable for a business to keep someone's money just because of inactivity, especially a casino.

Now here's the thing, I actually had over $1,000 sitting in an unregulated online casino for about 5 years that I totally forgot about for one reason or another(Casino Grand Bay, who went from a good reputation, to a very bad reputation I think they're on "probation" as of now) after little playing and running my account up even further they actually paid me the other day. So if a unregulated offshore online casino with a bad reputation can pay me after 5 years with no activity, please explain to me why a state regulated online casino what are you even think about confiscating someone's money?
I've lost over $5,000 due the casinos scummy b******* and expired tickets during a bad time in my life while having a series of surgeries. I'm not claiming that was the only reason I didn't get it done on time ,but it was part of it.
All this stuff is super scummy, and this is exactly why I sleep well at night doing what I do. #triggered.

What does that have to do with anything? After very little or no sleep I was up at 2:30 in the morning after someone plowed into three parked cars including mine. Then I spent the day trying to take care of that and other things. I dozed off in the evening time and woke up a few hours ago. I'm still not sure what time I'm posting has anything to do with Casinos scamming money from people.

If one sleeps well at night, it precludes them from posting. Ipso facto- people posting at night do not sleep well.

And you do realize "I sleep well at night" is a figure of speech? Kind of like saying, I won't lose any sleep tonight.

You're smart guy, so I think you know that. I can only assume you realize your analogy wasn't very good, and you secretly agree with me, but instead of saying that.... you decided to be funny.

I love to joke around, just not when it comes to the casinos f****** over players.

You buried the lead. What happened with car?

I am also curious how that long term bet of yours is going.

If it is in their "terms of service" and a player agrees to it, I then think it is okay
