I wonder how much he spent and how many drinks they gave him?
Tough time to get a fine of this amount. Its even worse the attention it is drawing.
weird how he even got a players card, 24? wonder if his id said his name was mc,lovin
The kid shouwed fake ID. I really don't think the casinos should be held responsible. For all purposes this "underage" person is really an adult who will get tried as an adult for fraud and can be sued by the casino.
I have a problem with the 21 to drink and gamble. All other things in this country can be done at 18, or earlier. Top of that list is dying for it.
I also do not think the casinos should be held responsible. I am 22 but I do look young, and security stares at my NJ dl for a minute trying to ensure it's real. I know the casino is just trying to protect itself but its sad to think they need to not only ID people but also try and ensure the ID is real.
Well then don't go to Yankee Stadium. The concession stands will not sell ANYONE a drink without valid ID, and believe me, I am not someone who could be mistaken for underaged!
perhaps this young buck should go to gamblers annonymous classes!
Well here goes my three cents. I only think that the casino should be fined because they were told and he still played. That being said if you can go to war for your country you should be able to pull a slot handle or play a game of cards. Man that is going to hurt Hilton they are already on the cliff looking down. Have a good week
ilikecraps, the issue is not that he showed fake ID to get the card. They didn't fine them for that. He was caught at another casino and admitted his true age and they notified Hilton of it and told them to cut him off. They crossed up their wires and let him play after they were notified. That's why they fined them.
BTW, I agree with the 18 vs. 21 year old thing. You are considered an adult when you reach the age of 18, but not in the eyes of the casinos and ATF.
But, after seeing our young 18 yo men and women these days.....I'm starting to re-think my stance on this subject.
My local airport has great bar/resturant that I always frequent for a scewdriver or bloody while I wait for my flight.They have a corporate policy to card EVERYONE.Now I'm in my 60's with a face only a mother could love which I didn't get from drinking milk and it tickles the shxt out of me to get carded.
Better safe than sorry I guess.
When I was a kid in NJ the drinking age was 21 but in NY it was 18--so we all crossed the border and had a big time.We would have been better off closer to home.
Bill,I agree with your rethinking--maybe we're both getting too old-lol [me more than you]
