    A co worker of mine told me about something that happened in one of the Seattle area casinos. A friend of one of his relatives was playing Pai Gow and someone at the table hit the 7 card straight flush which is attached to a progressive. Apparently the casino told the gentleman that hit this hand that he was too drunk and they refused to pay him. They also refused to pay his friend on the hand and told him that he was too drunk. I still need to find out if anybody else at the table got paid out on the hand. I know I'm lacking some details especially which casino this was at. Anyone hear anything about this? Anyone ever hear of something like this happening? I know casinos can kick you out, but can they refuse to pay you because you're too drunk?

    I have heard a couple of stories about refusal to pay. The progressive at the Indian casino we go to regularly (Tulalip) is over $300k now, and I have heard rumors that they refused to pay one time recently because a couple was playing next to each other, and the guy hit the hand, set it down and told his wife he had hit it, and prior to the dealer turning it over to be read the wife sitting next to him picked up his cards to look at them. Apparently they declared the hand dead due to that. I have also heard rumors that they have declared hands dead because someone looks at their hand before the dealer is done dealing out all of the cards, which is tough for the locals, because all of the local cardroom type casinos allow you to look the second they set your hand down.

    Not doubting, but lots of info missing in this story. Well OK, maybe I am doubting a little.

    Wish I had more info. I know it's pretty vague. It's a possibility that one of the scenarios happened that gmille58 described.

    I think the progressive was around 65k and I think each player gets around 10% of that amount.
