edessaknight,

This happened sometime in the 1980s or early 1990s. Caesar's Palace, a family was playing a progressive machine and the son, who was well over 6 feet tall, weighed 220 or more, and had a beard was the one who was on the machine when everything lined up for a jackpot.

So, they go to collect and the kid was underage. Caesar's in fact wanted to pay him anyway but the Nevada Gaming Commission said no.

It was a well publicized case at the time.

On the other hand, a lot of posts in this thread seem to be blatantly anti casino. Makes me wonder why people keep going to them. Just because someone once lost $5 on a hand of blackjack, craps table, or slot they want to 'get back at the man.'

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

Lep

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    "Now they've attracted bad publicity in which they will lose business and patrons "

    It's publicity that may reduce the percentage of morons they get as customers.  I expect that a lot of businesses would like that kind of publicity.

        The lawyers probably based their fees on actually winning the case and at least 1/3. There never was a $41 million bonus which the casino, the state gaming board, and now the Iowa Supreme Court has told them.
