Consquences For Players That Ban ThemselvesIf your a problem gambler what do you do, some actually ban themselves from casinos so they aren't tempted to go in and play, but does it really work.
Most people have been in a casino before and you have probably noticed that thousands of people can go in and out of a casino every day, so how do they pick out customers that have banned themselves from playing and what happens if they do get spotted.
Do the self banned customers just get kicked out or what? Well it can be more serious than that, local police blotters often have report on gamblers that are violating their self imposed ban and they are arrested on trespassing charges.
Some are seen by casino workers out on the floor and some get busted when they go to collect their winnings. The casino workers that do identify a excluded person can get a $250 bonus, so odds are their paying attention.
Recently a woman who had banned herself got arrested at the Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin after she tried to cash out approximately $4,000 she had won from the craps table. Gamblers that are self excluded are not to be out on the gaming floor at all an the Illinois Gaming Board has strengthened their self exclusion program in August of 2006 when they voted to start checking ID's of everyone that appeared 30 years old or younger, according to spokesman Gene O'Shea.
