I have to wonder if there was another reason why you didn't have to be present to win?

Hmm.. a grand prize drawing at an Indian Casino where the winner did not have to be present to win..

Seems legit to me.

No, but in all seriousness, there are so many cheating accusations against Indian Casinos, and it's really up to the player to believe it or not. I still avoid playing at certain Indian Casinos just because of the rep, not that I can prove they are cheating or not.

Well, it is a Caesars managed property.

I know Dan thinks casinos are all saintly. Here is just one time they were caught. The Venetian was caught red handed(not sure if that could be conciderd pun or not) CHEATING http://www.lottoreport.com/022604casinos.htm Yet AP's are scum. If they were blatantly caught, how often dose this go un-noticed?

I had 70% of the tickets in a drawing when I caught a small gaming establishment palming a ticket. I called them out prior to the drawing, they had some lame excuse for having a palmed ticket, then they drew a ticket, quickly toss it back saying, it was illegible. All this was Just to avoid me from winning.

The funny part about the illegible thing...... they were the ones who wrote your names on the tickets. Even funnier..... The look on there face's when they drew my GF's name was priceless, she had very few tickets.

Maybe you guys know since you are the pros but couldn't they just give these things to the high rollers instead of taking the risk of rigging drawings for them and other things. I mean why invite the extra risk and possibly have the gaming board involved when you can just give the high roller what you think will placate them and then have a normal drawing where a high roller could possibly win again. Seems like they just want to double-dip.

Marketing comes up with the promotions to keep people gambling or to gain players. It is also a way to get people to come back and start gambling. They probably get to write a percentage off on taxes. I'm sure the guys at the very top didn't know this was going on. Someone got greedy or upset the AP's or low rollers will take money from their high-rollers. I have a feeling that guy was probably going to get a nice gift had the high-roller won.

Same thing happened to me at a casino in West Virginia but I was not able to figure it out soon enough. Another lady was tipping the security guards $20 when she won. I remembered seeing her standing in front of the barrel nodding her head when he took hers and him dropping a few of mine, but didn't recognize it as a signal at the time. For the grand drawing, I wondered why nobody was allowed more than 30 feet away and just last year it hit me. Won plenty of times, but not as much as I should have. Nothing I can do about it 7 years later.

In Cincinnati Caesars had to Pay two people a million dollars with the same name because they couldn't tell them apart and they happened to live in the same town and around the same age and race. It would have been a PR nightmare if they didn't. Although it was an honest mistake, their refusal excuse would have been politically incorrect and obviously embarrassing. I would imagine this is a response to prevent it from happening again.

New info: some players say a dealer told them that if the money is not claimed in ten days Rincon keeps it.

On the Harrah's Rincon Facebook page they say they contacted the winner and the big announcement will be made this week.
