    from the postings of others in the past and how they ended up with a Wynn offer I believe that Wynn used datamining of your credit or debit card spending habits to decide who to send offers to

    and sometimes it is based on things not even done in Vegas.......it is amazing the information you can gain on "patterns" and possible future actions looking at spending habits

    It does happen in business and a lot of times, as long as there is no money involved, companies won't even pursue charges against the employee. I believe it's mainly to stop more of the company's dirty laundry from going public.

    I do believe that casinos share info on regular customers, but probably not high rollers. Take TI for instance, they offer free play for non-guests to entice people to visit them even if not staying there. They also know that if somebody is staying at say The Mirage for instance, most people will still gamble at least a little at other properties. So TI would be happy to share player info with MLife figuring they can probably get play out of somebody without having to comp a room. That's just my theory and could be completely wrong and maybe I didn't explain it all that well, but it makes sense to me.
