As a US citizen, what happens if I dont pay casino markers in the Bahamas that are given to me? It says the laws of NJ apply to markers they give you. But as someone with a legal background, it seems very odd to me. Im not sure that its legal or that they could actually do that when its in another country.

But you might get a visit from Robert Running Bear. I would advice you pay him if you don't want to be scalped. And I am not talking about tickets.

I can actually speak to the Indian Casino one. They will ruin your Everi/Central Casino Credit reputation. However I was still able to get lines in Vegas. Las Vegas seems to be the most liberal giving out lines because they know the DA will criminally go after you. Indians may try to come after you civilly.

I had an issue where Viejas accidentally credited 10k to my account on accident, and couldnt deposit an unsigned check into my account so they were out 10k by no fault of my own. Nothing ended up happening to my credit report though and they just dropped it.

A friend of mine was a casino manager at Chumash. They over extended a guy 300k who lost his entire line and told them he couldnt pay. They continued to let him play cash because he kept losing. When I asked my friend why they didnt do anything, he said what could we do? Do Indians really cant do much and sometimes itll be more trouble than its worth. I think the morale of the story is if youre gonna burn a tribal casino marker, do it for a large amount. Also after two years any negative remarks on your Everi report fall off.

No need for cross posting on this forum.
The thread is on the "front page", above the fold.

Someone with the knowledge you seek may simply be busy doing other things, and has yet to respond.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I know there's some serious money to be made under the right circumstances, but
It's not an issue for me since I never intend to work that angle.

Why NJ?

Is that where you live?
Or maybe they have some type of arrangement with an AC casino - although Id be curious what that would be regarding markers.
I invented a few casino games. Info: http://www.DaveMillerGaming.com/ Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

No, its a good question. No idea why they chose that jurisdiction. I dont live in NJ. In addition why didnt they choose NV? They cannot retroactively choose their jurisdiction. Theres already been case law thats ruled against them on this.

It would be the same as me saying all losing bets in Tonys basement tonight full under NV law. The markers were taken in the Bahamas. The game is taking place in the Bahamas. The jurisdiction and where they can collect is the Bahamas. A lot of people probably get scared and just pay up, but they have no standing to use another states statute.
