1. I'm 26, I have a buddy of mine that I work with that is 20. He wants to go to Horseshoe Indiana (riverboat) or Hollywood Casino (lawrenceberg) with me this weekend. He has a fake ID that has his name on it, his picture, the official Indiana Seal that comes on the ID's, like it's pretty legit. When you get carded at casino's and they scan your driver's licences, are they running the information through a database like to the DMV to see if all the info matches up, or what? If it's his picture with the official everything and a fake birthdate will this work or will they take his ID? Anyone have any experience with this? I feel like im 18 again with this thread, lol.

  3. fake ID's are a joke. I had one since I was 18 and have gone to casinos ever since and they don't give a fuck as long as it looks real

    I'd watch out for tournaments because you have to claim those on your taxes but cash games they just let you walk out.

    As long as its not blatantly obvious you'll be ok. They just want their money and thats it. Tell him to be cool and everything will be ok

  5. almost every time i have been to a casino my id has been black-lighted by a pen/flash light they have while entering the casino. I don't know much about the machines they use to scan your id but i have definitely seen those / had one used on my i.d. before. I'm sure it is probably hooked up to some state database or something.

    One time at the soaring eagle they took my i.d. and i got banned for 90 days when i was 17 and i just had to call a cab back to college cause they obv kicked us off their property. wasn't really a big deal. good luck

  6. I'm sure getting away with the casino trip wouldn't be a problem. But if he's involved in a bad beat jackpot or other big win that would involve tax docs he's screwed.

  7. at blue chip they put it in some machine, not sure what it does, but i would assume a fakey would be detected by it

  8. are they barcode scanning?

    bc if they are then he has to get the right barcode on there to match the front text....if not i bet he is SOL

    If it is just an image scan like scanning a pic it's probably less of an issue.

  12. My friend had a fake that scanned and worked fine in all the Vegas casinos. I figure if it can pass there, it should be able to pass most anywhere. I think it just depends on the type of fake and whether it can scan. But yeah, like the others said above, no tournies....no jackpots.

  14. The horseshoe in Indiana doesn't scan ID's they just look at them. I have a vertical Michigan ID and they just glance at it and let me in.

    think ive seen like 2 people ever get ID'd in my 15 trips to vegas, and they defi werent scanned. A little different at horseshoe indiana or any other legit casino out on its own

  20. Horseshoe Indiana does actually scan your ID. This is 100% confirmed. They have it set up similar to an airport entrance. If you look potentially underage, they will scan your Id and Stamp your hand before you can enter the boat.

  21. I was at the Horseshoe a month ago playing some 1/3 NL cash and my 19 year old brother got in with his fake ID. His fake was from Michigan and he just told them he has had trouble scanning his ID in the past, and they let him right in. It's honestly your word against there's, a lot of ID's get demagnetized over time especially if your carrying a money clip. Good Luck, you should be fine!

  22. I asked the guy tonight when they scanned my id what it did and he said the first machine scans the barcode and the 2nd machine takes a picture of it

  23. If you don't want to worry about your ID being turned down just do what I did. Find a person that looks like you and pay them for their ID. That way it is a legit ID so it won't be turned down unless it doesn't look as much like you as you think. I noticed at places where they feed your ID through a machine or type in your information into a computer they hardly even look at the picture. They just rely on the computer to find out if its fake.

    They've never scanned my ID although they wouldn't let me in when I had a speeding ticket instead of my license, even though I also had a FOID card and two CCs with my info on em. Fucking power trippin security guards.....

  25. Scanning ID's is to make sure that a) It actually does scan (fake ones don't always have an active barcode) and b) to make sure the information displayed on the scan machine matches what's on the ID (to avoid altering a real ID).....

    Tell your buddy to be careful tho, because it's a felony to have a FAKE ID, he's better off (for purposes of law) using a real one that isn't him and taking a shot they won't analyze the photo.

    FAKE ID is considered altering a gov't issued document, which is a felony.
