Casino's prey on people PERIOD. That's what Dan doesn't want to disclose when he defends the casino's actions and or whatever with all the entertainment BS he claims. If it was all about entertainment, fun and game's...... they would set a limit to how much people can lose.

They will never do that.

Really Dan you think it's entertainment to the tune of million of dollars in losses? This is NOT something new...this is something rampant at ALL casinos.

Goodgle stories about casino's encouraging people to gamble, it's very eye open2. They target evryone even people thwy know can't afford it.

How obviousobvious is it that people have people have an addiction? It's so obvious that it's sickening.

It's outrageous, horrific, sick and twisted what casino's do.

They will do.anything if they think they can make a significant amount of money from an addicted player, no matter what the curumstances are.

IMO the casino knew he didn't have the money, they knew he had a major gambling problem. They knew he didn't have the monwy but thwy didn't care or give a FK as long as they got his money. They were free rolling him knowing they would get all of his money and he would be in debt to them.

Casinos are the biggest scumbag predators in the world.

It's not as if the casinos wouldn't put some sort of protection for themselves in place once they detected a problem gambler, if it really mattered. They aren't stupid. So I am on record for saying in this thread and in my blog that they find they benefit from running up the debt. I won't repeat myself on that, but note I say 'debt'. This is a debt situation.

No matter how despicable the behind-the-scenes exploitation strategy was, this is debt they are entitled to try to collect. The guy got himself into this mess. What is really wrong is the District Attorney/Jail Time angle. This kind of pressure is what gets these guys to start embezzling and lying and cheating and stealing and into improper borrowing.

I really want to see states start prohibiting this kind of publicly assisted debt collection. Nevada is probably a lost cause.

It's honestly a joke- that's why they make you sign it as a check knowing full well. They can prosecute, Then the fact that they play fast and lose with with laws, you can give them a post dated check but they negotiated holding it before they deposit. I also know for a fact they don't also check balance- I got a 25k marker in an account with less then 5 k balance ever

I think most places use a service called Casino Credit and they usually check the balance the first time or two you apply for credit. Once you have been established they tend to be a lot more lenient when you apply at other casinos that use their service.

I finally finished a blog about my experience with casino credit - wanted the whole process to finish first before posting.
