The following portion of a post from many years ago was on a blackjack-related website.
"The Internet is another major source of information for casino employees and specifically, surveillance spies. If you're a frequent user of advantage player sites, you've been had! These sites have more casino surveillance and floorpeople on them than there are feds monitoring the websites that sell plans for homemade explosives."
What are your thoughts and/or reactions to this?
bigplayer: It is probably true. Not every casino has someone in surveillance who monitors the discussion boards, but many do and many casino consultants check these pages regularly. There is no security check that’s possible to ferret out these undesirables from Green Chip membership -- you can just make up a name and give a credit card number and you're in. That is why you should be careful about what you say. Your audience is the casino (your customer) and other advantage players (your competitors).
Casino management does not bother with pages like this. Game protection from advantage players is an issue for them, but has never been their primary concern. They're more concerned with customer service, training, hiring, and scheduling of employees, and keeping their bosses happy.
21forme: Use common sense. Over the years, I have identified four forum members by their handles, simply by seeing them in action in casinos and putting two and two together from their posts.
A little common sense and discretion can prevent this. Examples:
Sirwongsalot: It’s so pathetic and sad that someone who makes barely more than minimum wage for watching a camera all day trolls around on these boards trying to out card counters. Get a life, casino creeps.
