    How do you feel when asked for money.

    So the other day I went to one of the casino's that I frequent. To play my Free play . Well this particular casino you have too have at least one dollar of your own money to start the free play , Than after that your good to go. So I was cashing out a ticket for about $ 160 dollars & I had a gentleman standing beyond me , Who asked if I had a dollar he could borrow. So that he could start his free play. I told him I would just give him the dollar. I'm sorry but even with free play I at least bring 10 dollars with me. Especially this casino. Most of the time the free play is about $120 dollars a week.

    Ive never been asked for money at the casino. Im not sure how I would feel. If it were just $1 I might give it if I had one dollar bill but usually my cash is in the game or I have twenties. I probably would just say "No Im sorry".

    That was nice of you to give a dollar. That person should've had their own dollar.

    I encountered a woman in Resorts the last time I was in Atlantic City. She was slumped over a chair and I stopped to see if she was ok. She told me she had a bad knee and was just resting. As I started to walk away she proceeded to tell me it was her birthday and her family had forgotten. I wished her a happy birthday and told her to have a good evening. Her response was if you give me a 20 you would be making my birthday better
    I just walked away shaking my head.

    It makes me uncomfortable...especially when they sit there staring at you while you're winning before they ask. I can usually sense when they are getting ready to ask. It's only happened to me 3 times so far.

    I have only been asked a couple of times. Once on the way to the bathroom. Told him I was broke.

    I also do not like when I am playing and there is someone sitting right next to me at a machine not playing, just watching me play. I had a guy say he was good luck for me when I hit a WOF spin. I thanked him for his good luck and cashed out to move.

    In AC, I get asked for money all the time, especially at Ballys. I find it amusing when I am sitting in a no smoking section where I am obviously not smoking, and someone asks me for a cigarette.

    I usually tell them I am down to my last dollar and will be leaving as soon as I find my ride. They should not be there if they don't even have a dollar.

    If it's a dollar or two I'll usually give it (if I have ones).
    I don't pass out 20's to strangers... Just friends & family.

    When I lived and played frequently at South Florida casino's, this happened to me a lot. I could probably write a book. I was playing at Calder once, and there is a Wal Mart right across the street. Not so good neighborhood either in Miami Gardens. I'm on Pompeii, bonus, up to 600$ with retrigger wazoo. This guy sits next to me pulling baby and women's clothes with the tags on from under his clothes. He tells me it is his birthday, and he will sell me all the clothes for 100$. I said no. He wouldn't stop, he started begging. I am an extremely quiet, shy, introverted type of person, but I was boiling inside. I quickly cashed out after the bonus, got up, and the guy ran out thinking I would tell one of their two whole security guards.
