How to Get Your Money Back from the Casino

How to Get Your Money Back from the Casino

It was supposed to be a fun and refreshing weekend get away in Reno, Atlantic City or Vegas. You liked the room rates, restaurants and great service in the hotel. You took $1,000 for the trip – just to blow it gambling – of course, cash, so you wouldn’t be charged by casino ATM fees. So how come now that you came back home on Monday you realized that you actually owe another $1,000 to the casino? You think, “Well, at least I have plenty of comps,” but when you call to see if you have enough for a free night at the hotel, they say you have enough comps, but maybe for a burger at the coffee shop. You throw the phone in the wall and think, “Where did I go wrong”?

The answer is really simple. You took cash, but you also took the whole wallet, including checkbook, credit and debit cards. Just your ID and a voided check is enough to open a credit line at the casino. Something a Casino Host always tries to convince you to do,as he often gets commission out of the credit line used to gamble. The first important message to you – if you don’t want to spend any extra money, the only things that you should bring to the casino are your ID and cash. Do not take any credit or debit cards, neither your checkbook. You can use a cash deposit for check in, instead of swiping the credit card.

If you play slots, tracking your card is pretty simple. Just stick it in the proper slot in the machine and you’re all set. If you’re playing more than one machine, make sure to put all your player cards in each of them. If you have only one with you at the moment, call a slot attendant.He’ll take your ID, and bring you two new ones, so you can be tracked properly.

When you play tables the case is more complicated. Once I had a guest, that was betting anything between 25 and 400 dollars within 4 hours of play. Depending on different casino systems for play on a Black Jack table he should get 50 to 100 dollars in comp money. He didn’t. What happened was, his little pit tracking card,where the pitboss enters time and betting was never entered into the system. My advice – if the casino is modern and either uses swiping system, when you swipe the player’s card as you sit down at the table or the money you play is being tracked by electronic chips you have nothing to worry about. Otherwise make sure every new pitboss sees your action, as they check on you approximately every 15 minutes. Then,afterwards, check your balance on the card, to see if play was registered. If the casino has the policy of hidden balance, and they can’t tell you exactly how many comps you have, they still are able to tell you, what play and on what game was registered.

Here comes last,but the most important tip. Always use your player’s card! Nobody will believe you that you spent 5,000 dollars, but just forgot to put your card in. It might be true, but what proof of that you have? You cannot demand any comp money, as it’s simply because of your laziness, that your money was lost, and it wasn’t registered by the casino player’s system. Of course there are exceptions to that. If you are under influence of alcohol, just make sure your casino host sees you, and sees how much and within what time you are gambling. Simply because of his testimony the casino might put some play on your card, even though you forgot to put it in. It doesn’t apply to everyone, as not every player has a casino host. Only a valuable for the casino gambler will have one. So if you lost $100 within 30 minutes, and you forgot to put the card in, just forget it. You probably wouldn’t get many comps anyway (maybe few dollars). Just remember to use it next time.

How to have good time in the casino? Here’s my advice for both – losers and winners:

1. Gamble wisely. Bring cash, only within the amount you can afford to lose

2. Do not expect winning. Those magnificent places were not built on winners

3. Do not overuse alcohol, as your common sense tends to disappear, and you can wake up with more trouble than just a hangover

4. Use your player’s card – only this way you can get back some of the money you lost by eating and staying at the hotel for free.

Remember to enjoy your visit at the casino, because that is exactly what gambling should be – just fun or you can just play it online by visiting Agenbolabagus.com.

Online Gambling Trends Around The World

Online Gambling Trends Around The World

Our first trend is that of online gambling. This is a trend that is extremely topical and is also extremely relevant to the Sports, Entertainment, and Event Management industry. In particular relation to the Sport and Entertainment industry, there is plenty of betting in sports from both fans and the athletes themselves. As a group we have decided that this trend is primarily economic, but secondary a Sports and Entertainment trend. The two articles we have chosen focus on the recent legislation for a U.S ban on Internet gambling singed Friday 13, 2006. The exact ruling is to ban financial payments to offshore accounts and websites. The reason we choose these two articles because it is a significant change that has occurred recently. Also it heavily affects the SEE industry as many of the bets were placed on sports. We also thought the fantasy waging was interesting and how that relates to bets with actual money.


On October 13, 2006 it was announced that British betting company Sportingbet has sold its U.S operations to an Antigua based company for $1. The move came just hours before the U.S ban on internet gambling recently signed by President Bush. Although it seems ridiculous to sell U.S operations so cheaply it has allowed the company to offload $13.2 million of debt and save the company $14 million on shutting down expense.

The second article we choose as a group was written on October 19, 2006 and is about fantasy wagering websites and is entitled Not So Risky Business. We think this article ties in very nicely with our first because it gives the American consumer a new no risk option. The websites work the same way as regular gambling sites, but no money changes hands. Agenbolabagus.com allows it members to challenge others to wagers on sporting events with the winner collecting points. These points can be later redeemed for prizes such as Plasma TV’s and iPods. This fantasy gambling continues to exist because there is a loophole in federal legislation if there is no actual money involved. Sites such as agenbolabagus.com allow users to gain information they can then use for real bets with offshore sites.

We think this trend and these articles are fairly well related to the Strategic management process. We think that this especially relates to the first article on Sportingbet. In the planning stage as they have made a quick decision to pull out of the U.S market. If such quick decisions were not made they would have been left with huge debt and expense to shut down. Our second article also relates to the Strategic management process in a similar way because they are taking advantage of a loophole to ensure these sites remain open.
