Other than the weekends what is the best day to play out here? Is there a particular weekday that's more busy than the others?

So a big deal supposedly happened at Rivers and not a single post about it. Well, what happened? Or is this just another poker urban legend.

Thatís wild if there isnít more to it. Iím sure itís technically against some terms and conditions some where but poker players using casino chips as currency amongst themselves is super common.

What's the rationale for prohibiting it?

Believe you can *give* chips to other people all you like, you just can't exchange cash for them. They're SUPER strict on it, gaming board rule, casino does not want to lose their license so they ar in turn very strict on it.

Yo how does that app work anyway? I got my players card registered and whenever I try to sign up for the waitlist it just seems like it isnt working. I click the checkbox and then the app is non responsive lmao. No live waitlist/list of names to be seen.

Click the checkbox, wait a second to confirm it registers, then click the "Sign Up' button at the top.

It'll then flash up a box saying "Successfully Signed Up" and a second saying "Server received your enquiry. Success"

You can't see the waitlist but you'll be on the list. Have to check in at the desk within 90 mins.

The Illinois Gaming Board is on site at Rivers Casino (usually 24/7). Rivers Casino will not produce the ability to contact them ever (which is against the rules). You may reach them 24/7 at 847-768-5205 (live person).

There is always supposed to be a 'Gaming Official' available in a casino for any patron to make contact with upon request. I've never come across where a patron was denied access to them, but have heard of a few 'delayed response times' when it comes to these requests.

I'm not sure what those folks do as far as daily duties, but I'd assume it becomes pretty mundane in short order.

Public casinos have 'State' Gaming officials whereas the impression of Tribal Gaming comes with a half-smile as a neutral intermediary for patron inquiries. There is a Federal Tribal Gaming Commission that can step in if action needs to be taken up a notch. GL

That gunshot report is weird. I happened to be at Poto in Milwaukee both times there was shots fired in the past 15 years. Ain't no way you're hearing gunshots and then staying around to count that there's 8 people involved. You running away, everyone else is running, and all security officers now start moving towards that location. It's chaos that builds further chaos inside the casino.
