First, I think the law for this need of ID verification applies to cash transactions over $10,000, whether it's for the purchase of a car or a casino cashout, but casinos have the authority to ask for ID on transactions under that amount because money launderers can do their transgressions in increments of $8,000, $7,000, etc. That has more to do with the casino covering its tail than anything else. And if you press a cashier for specific reasons why an ID is needed, you likely won't get anything outside a brief response because anything "off the cuff" could be used against him or her.

Look, this concept of privacy is buried deep beneath the dump of modern technology. If identity theft and money laundering weren't so rampant, there would be no use for these onerous laws. You can pine for the halcyon days before social security numbers, but it won't give you anything but a nice respite from reality.

If it concerns you that others may use the social security info to appropriate your identity, just monitor your credit regularly. That's pretty much all you can do.

I've bet at the Wynn many times over the years and never had an issue. Its a great property. While I agree that most requests are related to money laundering or federal law requiring same, the reality is any smart money cleaner will simply use multiple casino's and limits well under $10K. Anway, its alot easier to simply clean it at the tables using chips. Such laws are really for the stupid and inept.

Here's a VERY timely reason for why Wynn felt the need to ask you for proper ID

Dude you need to cool it, your only hurting, not helpin with continous posts of something that is a non-issue....

I will oblige tho, far better books to deal with out in Vegas, not too mention I am extremely dissapointed in the fact that they only let guests of that hotel play their golf course, I mean come on people....its not Pebble Beach for Christ Sakes.....this might have changed recently as I have not been there in over a year, but still a lil upset about it....

nice hit
I have been to the Wynn many times and for the most part been treated with respect.
I do believe their comp and drink policies are a little high but they obviously get it as the place is usually busy.
