If you hit a jackpot, and didn't want it advertised on the internet, is there anything you can do to stop the casino from taking a picture of just the winning screen. I think some casinos do this, don't know if they get permission or need permission.

My guess: no, if it's just the machine - after all, it's the casino's machine. If you're not in the photo, then who's going to know that it was your jackpot?

I would be more worried about some bystanders taking your photo and then posting them to Facebook or Twitter.

You gave me a solution.
Move the chair, stand in front of machine while they work so they can't take a photo. Say it is for luck.

Usually a casino will obtain your written consent to any publicity photographs. They do have a right to photograph the machine but you standing there holding a drink or an oversized check or something has to be voluntary. Web listings of winners are hard to stop but as I understand the Nevada Regulations jackpots can only be paid from a jackpot account and all accounting entries to that account must be disclosed. That is why when a machine malfunctions and the casino gives you a consolation check they make you sign a letter acknowledging that the money is from their general account and not from their jackpot account. That jackpot account is open to inspection.

Recently we hit a good machine jackpot (over $10k). There were a couple onlookers that stopped by, but the machine attendant did her thing and asked my teammate if he wanted to be paid in private. She then asked if he wanted to be in a picture for social media (but said he absolutely didn't need to be if he didn't want to be). Of course he declined, but she took a snapshot of the machine. We didn't really care. If we did though, I'd just say "I'd like to get paid first before you take a picture!" Then just hit the button to go to the next round... The machine is on their property and I'm pretty sure you agree to let them film/video/take pictures of you while you're on their property. I'd imagine if they really wanted to they could post a picture of you and the jackpot without your permission. So at the end of the day you might be fighting an uphill battle, and for what cause? So they have 1 less jackpot picture to mislead people about all the "WINNING" that happens at the casino?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I once hit an $8,000 jackpot at the Riviera. The slot manager, who I knew, came over to congratulate me. I asked, "Why does nobody take my picture when I hit a jackpot?" He said they would be happy to, and did. It later appeared on the Riviera Facebook page.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Iím all for privacy, I do understand tourist taking photos etc , we literally get p&o cruise ships boat loads of tourists at Sydney casino every week. Flash flash etc, the staff here are required to actively intervene if they see people filming, some do this with more gusto than is needed, payback I guess. On the rare occasion someone wins big on the electronic machine and they happen to try and take a photo at the same time as a staff member is near , they are Quote told -tacking photos on casino premises is prohibited and they can be escorted from the premises - in quote.
Huge arguments re my right to show my winning screen etc verses staff reply etc. Depending on my mood I would intervene or not. If I intervene ,in a polite way I tell them to wait until staff has moved then take a picture, smart way , but of course you always get the odd bonehead who just wants to vent the accumulation of disappointment of a sad life .
Yes the casino here can take official photos of winning events promoting the casino, only with the winning participants approval, on occasions they will display via banners and screens of upcoming filming events and the location date and duration. I know members here are approached by the casino and offered casino rewards to participate in the program, usually they are race profile,age profile or odd and interesting looking characters. The reason of the display is privacy for members,Example- you donít want to be in the background shot inevitably donít come here on this day. That works for me
Kind regards
