Minor formatting error.

Edit: If ANYONE has a higher resolution image... PM's are open, although I would hope you could zoom in on the certificates and nametags yourself.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I wish I could, I was just hoping maybe someone could tell by the carpet or how the cocktail waitress looks. I found this pic from a folder I had 2 years ago and don't know where I got it from.

What leads the OP to think this pic was from a casino? From the overall setting and crowd...frumpy folks surrounded by a low drop ceiling, empty bar, sturdy partition, and tables with with white tablecloths, this could be an asian restaurant, bowling alley lounge, or Knights of Pythias awards dinner at a local Lodge.

Well cause I had it in a folder I was going through labeled casinos. I had to have known which casino it was at the time. Also that's clearly a cocktail waitress in the picture. I know its a long shot for someone to be able to tell from this pic, but I figured I just ask just in case someone does know.

Someone with more time could track it down, but the awards are from the city of Las Vegas - LV Convention and Visitor Authority and LV Metro Chamber of Commerce.

Still, that only narrows it somewhat as the awards could have been presented in a variety of industries. This one was presented to someone at the Plaza so it means that conceivably someone could receive it in the casino industry:


That award for someone who worked at the Plaza I just posted is from 2019, and is not from your photo, but is identical in format.

The big guy upper right in your photo looks familiar to me but I don't want to hazard a guess without knowing for sure. He does resemble the VP of Casino Marketing at one of the casinos I play at.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people. https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/betting-systems/33908-the-adventures-of-mdawg/

The particular smiles on the executives (not holding certificates) combined with the style of the nametags is what sold me on the idea.

Yeah, I can see it now.

My first impression was that this was a somewhat warped version of the Little Lebowski Urban Achiever awards. But now, given Mdawg's observations, the shiny tags on soft dark-blazered casino type guys, and the OP's recollections, the elements are coming together.

It looks like a back-of-the-house LV venue. Someone in this crowd will eventually recognize it.

I think the certificates are for "proven ability to control and influence dice" :)
