    It was on UFC embedded ep5... 3rd or 4th casino in Vegas that kicked him out.

    How does that work,anyone knows? Where do they draw the line? ? Isnt that kind of bad business practice, someone so much in the public eye and a regular. He also probably loses a lot, spoke once on Rogan's pod how he lost, I forgot, 4 or 6 million one night ? And that was years ago, who knows whats his record now.

    It seems so ridiculous to ban someone from a casino. Maybe a tiny one, but the guy gambles in these huge Vegas ones where youd think they got him covered. He must be really killing it.

    (around 2.05 time)

    Happens more often than people think.

    Casinos like to take money. Casinos don't like handing it out.

    When they don't they like to call you a cheater, just ask Phil Ivy.

    In the end the Lawyers always win :)

    Average joe can win generally all he wants, but when you have celebs, CEOs, etc, they gamble with more money than some people will see in their entire lives. Since they gamble huge, they win/lose huge. All it takes is a couple big wins and the House is out a shitload of cash.

    Like I said, for average joe betting a couple hundred and winning thousands is not a big deal.

    For celeb dropping 12 million and winning several games in a row, yeah gtfo you obviously have a system going and we aren't your cash cow.

    And then there's the one they don't talk about... the problem people who cause issues/altercations/trouble in the Casino and since they can generally buy their way out of trouble, banning them is the only way to put them out for good.

    You don't have to be smart. Smart is the guys that figured out the system. Anyone can learn it. But usually cheating requires more then 1 person.

    I don't think these people really are getting banned. I think saying I'm so good I was kicked out instead of I got so drunk I was kicked out.

    This. This is one issue I can't blame Dana on.

    Casinos are private companies and can refuse service to anyone for any reason, including if someone is winning when they're supposed to be losing.

    Lol nice spin from Dana saying he is banned because he won too much. I heard they banned him because he was losing and addicted. They didn't want him to blow his entire fortune

    That would make sense if he had been gambling at Station casinos.

    Good problem to have. I've been asked to leave when I went in a crazy hot streak.

    Didn't he make a big stink the first time this happened? Was it the Palms? He pulled the UFC shows. It sounds like a bunch of casinos had enough of his card counting.

    Don't forget he is associated with the Fertittas who own their own casino's, could be kind of sour grapes with other owners when he wins big and talks shit on them lol
