So I know this may not be the exact forum for this story (sorry it's long), but it's where I post most often in. I'm a local player who gambles almost every day. I've lived here for 15 years and have never been this insulted/embarrassed in a casino. I was Noir at mlife with over 3 million tier credits until they dropped me this month to platinum. I also play at Cosmopolitan. I'm gold there.........and probably earned around 70,000 points this year. One month.....I know I earned around 20,000 points, since there was a gift card promotion and I was checking with the club. I guess I'm pretty close to platinum. Anyway, I was gambling tonight and I was down 120 dollars. I had cashed out 35 cents from a slot I was playing max credits. I sometimes leave change in the machine but I've been on a losing streak recently and need all the pennies I could get. I noticed a machine near me had 40 cents left in it. I cashed that out. I then was walking to go play video poker and I saw another cash out button lit. I figured I'll get this change up to a dollar and play 1 spin at video roulette and try to turn it into 35 dollars. I take that change out, noticing it was only 14 cents........and a woman security guard stops me and asks me for id. I said "wow do I look that young? I'm 36 by the way. She says yes- I say thanks- and laughed. I thought it was a cool compliment. Well something else was going on here. She calls for back up security and takes a photo of my id. I'm like "what is going on?". She said I saw you take that voucher out of the machine. That's a crime in the state of Nevada. I said, I had no idea (which I didn't). I showed her my gold card and told her to look me up in the system. I told her that a few months back I earned 20,000 points in one month and remember losing almost $3,000 in one day. Back up security gets there and is treating me like a huge criminal. Everyone is staring at me. I show him my platinum card at Mlife, gold card at cosmo, platinum card at Stations........and tell him that I still have my mlife Noir card in my car as they just dropped me. I figured I would get an apology for the way I'm being treated. Well.......he became even more of a jerk. The woman security guard was being kind of nice to me in comparison. Telling me that they have to escort me out tonight (they walked me across the whole place to the parking garage).............but it's just a warning and I'm free to comeback another day. As they were walking me to my car I asked...... doesn't someone have to get the money that is left in the machine? I've left money in the machine many times........did I cause trouble for others that found it? They didn't really want to answer my questions. So yeah, that's the story. I actually have stomach pains from the nerves/embarrassment this caused. Was I being punked? Was Ashton Kutcher going to come out and say- hahahaha- we got you good. I have never received a food comp from them and I feel like I should complain to someone about this. A part of me doesn't want to think about it though. Thanks for reading- and I'd like to hear your opinions on this.
