My closest casino is a tribal joint outside of Portland called Ilani.

They now have a no exceptions policy where you are required to pause for a camera to view you and also give your state ID to an attendant who copies / scans it before it is returned.

This is not good for AP's or others wishing to fly under the radar.

Do any Las Vegas casinos do this ... yet?

Maybe the requirement will spread to other properties managed by Mohegan Sun Gaming & Entertainment.

It's being done in Rhode Island at least one Casino and at Plainridge Park Casino in Massachusetts.

And yes they are using it to check for AP databases. I was told I was not allowed inside the Plainridge Park location and then a photo of me at the security entrance popped up in OSN marked as my last known appearance

It was my first visit ever!

Tiverton Casino Hotel and Twin River Casino are the only casinos in Rhode Island. They are both state owned and managed, so both probably have the ID requirement.

Massachusetts licenses three casinos, Plainridge Park Casino being one of them, but each is managed by a different organization. Perhaps MGM Springfield and Encore Boston Harbor have different requirements.

A lot of casinos are/were asking people to lower their Covid mask at the entrance and cage.

This is the first I heard about IDs - and not just for those near 21.

Rhode Island:

Riverton. Don't know didn't visit.

Twin River checked ID. Did not flag me however and in an unusual move checks ID when leaving as well (security said it's to know who is currently inside)

Massachusetts:. Only Plainridge scans all ID as mentioned above. Springfield you just have to lower your mask and Boston Encore as well

Mrs. Chips reports no ID asked for when she entered Mohegan Sun this afternoon. She will be at Foxwoods tomorrow. I'll post whether or not they required an ID.

Update:

I called Ilani casino to clarify their ID procedure.

The fellow said they ask for it only between 8 PM and 8 AM.

He said what looks like a camera is really a thermal imager to authomatically check temp.

That's correct, neither Foxwoods nor Mohegan checked my ID.

Again so far only two Casinos have done it to me

Twin River and Plainridge.

It's not just looking at ID but scanning it into a database.

Twin River scans your ID leaving so they may just be keeping tabs on occupancy like they say.

But Plainridge absolutely used it to cross reference with OSN

Circa, The D and Golden Gate(Steven's Properties)have been requiring state ID's since November of 2020.

Run through a hand held scanner upon entrance at all doors leading in.

Maybe checking for the age 21 requirement?

It was still a thing when I was there in early April 2021.
I don't know everything but I know a lot.
