Stupid moves that will get you kicked out by casino security…
Did you ever
wonder what it takes to get a player kicked out of the casino? I’m
sure you can imagine a few scenarios. There’s all the extreme ones,
like stripping down naked and streaking the pit bosses. That will
definitely do it! Punching another patron (or anyone for that matter)
should do the trick. Brandishing a weapon, of course…
But what about
things that aren’t quite so obvious? Players get escorted from
gambling establishments in Las Vegas every day, and the reason isn’t
always so blatant. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the things you
may not realize are worthy of a quick boot from your favorite casino
How to Get Kicked Out by Casino Security
Before I go any
further, I need to explain something first. Most casinos do not need
to have a “reason” to kick you out. In many jurisdictions,
including Las Vegas and all Canadian provinces, commercial casinos
are legally described as ‘private clubs’. Being a private club, the
operation has the right to ask anyone to leave, for any reason
(barring prejudice of sex, race or religion), any time, with or
without expressing that reason.
With that said,
here are some of those reasons, which they may or may not explain as
their boot metaphorically connects with your backside.
#1 Conspicuous Card Counting
things to note here; 1) card counting is NOT illegal! 2)
casinos don’t like card counters.
is, theoretically, the only way to gain a “player’s edge”
(as opposed to a “house edge”). As such, casinos really
don’t like card counters, and will do anything in their power to keep
them out. Due to that ‘private club’ stipulation mentioned above, if
they suspect you’re counting cards (and doing it well), they will
quietly ask you to leave. Refuse, and they’ll get louder about it.
Suffice to say, if you’re going to count cards, don’t be obvious!
#2 Disruptively Boisterous Behavior
their patrons to have a good time, but if you’re having such a good
time that it’s actually disrupting the entertainment of other
patrons, you’re sure to draw the attention of the pit bosses. Whether
you’re overly celebrating your wins in an inordinately annoying
manner, or getting unduly angry over a strain of bad luck, that’s a
big no-no. Odds are you’ll be asked to calm down before you get the
boot, but if you fail to comply, prepare for ejection.
#3 Disrespecting Casino Staff
Casinos will not
tolerate rude or abusive behavior towards their staff members. I
don’t care if the blackjack dealer passes you a 10-2 five times in a
row, you are not permitted to insult, curse, or shout at them. On the
opposite end of that spectrum, you may not partake in overly and/or
unwanted flirtatious conduct towards the staff. Such disrespect won’t
likely even get you a warning before you’re tossed.
#4 Aggressive Attitude / Behavior
violence – or actual violence – are the fastest way to get
yourself removed from the casino, and it won’t be gingerly, either.
Don’t even act like you’re going to become a threat to anyone unless
you want to experience the wrath of the security crews aptly
nicknamed, ‘Big Bubba‘.
#5 Obdurate Inebriation
Be careful how
much alcohol you consume at the casino. Gambling under the influence
is a bad idea to begin with. Have a few too many drinks, and the pit
bosses will take notice. If you’re a kindly drunk with reasonably
deep pockets, they might comp you a free meal to help you sober up.
Otherwise, casino security won’t hesitate to ensure you sleep it off
somewhere beyond the premises.
#6 Winning Too Much
The occasional big win is to be expected in a casino. Winning large amounts a little too often will draw suspicion. If the pit bosses or casino security team have reason to suspect you’re wins are anything more than dumb luck, they may decide they don’t want you playing there anymore. Even if they can’t find any wrong doing, they could ask you to take your fortuitous business elsewhere. Get caught actually cheating, and you’ll wish you got kicked out of the casino. Instead, you’ll be gruffly escorted to a back room, interrogated, and – if there’s enough proof – eventually taken into custody by police.
