I suppose when one makes $20,000 a week, one must put up with the minor inconveniences.

Exactly. DarkOz has found a lucrative career, but it is not all roses. Some of it is the thorns attached. My career had 24 hour shifts. Not as bad as being backroomed, but it sucked.

I began writing my memoir when I started making the big money.

Then after my first backroom experience and subsequent loss of offers I complained woe is me to my daughter.

She replied (paraphrasing), "Dad, you have some exciting stuff for your memoirs now. Discussing how you win all the time would be boring to read. Day, fifty-three, won another ten gees. Day fifty-four, won another six gees. Each bad experience in your AP career is just another chapter in your book."

Winning all the time is great but makes for boring tales.

If you read any long threads about winning all the time you will know what I mean

Fiction is fiction. Some fiction is boring, some are captivating but in the end, it is all fiction.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Players cards are the property of the casinos, even if it has your name on it.

When you rent a car it remains the property of the car rental agency but it's in your name.

Not a crime to let someone drive it.

It is a crime or violation of the rules if the promotions are used improperly. Arresting someone is a bit extreme. Banning the player or players involved and forfeiting any points accumulated would have been more appropriate.

On the other hand, I know a person who inadvertently received $10k loaded onto his players card account. He was redeeming them for free play. Problem was he could only redeem $500 per day. After a week, the casino must have figured out the mistake and it was gone. But he never got in trouble, but I'm guessing he could have. He tried flying under the radar as muchbas possible, always redeeming his free play using the kiosk.

Letting an unauthorized driver use a rental cars opens you up to all sorts of problems. I'm not sure it is illegal but it certainly opens you to all sorts of civil penalties.

Quote clipped for relevance. Those are two very different things separated by an ďorĒ. One is a crime. One is not a crime.

Violation of the rules yes.

Crime no.

Why do people think casinos make laws?

The analogy is completely misplaced. Driving a rental car when not on the contract could result in complete liability to the tune of the value of the entire car if there is an at fault accident and the car is totaled. Along those lines, the person who misuses thousands of player cards would be on the hook to pay back every penny earned not in his name.

I will say this - if there is going to be something done about this, the biggest offenders will end up being the targets. Whom do they go after with the largest and most organized enforcement actions? Pablo Escobar, and El Chapo, or the nameless faceless anonymous nickel bag dealer.
