    There was a thread earlier and I believe Dana claimed the reason was because he was winning too much money.

    Wins too much money I'm guessing. Casinos are dumb like that.

    Seems almost illegal how casinos can just pick to not let people play once they start beating them. So shady

    Dana is really good at blackjack. Plus he talks a lot of shit(even when he's winning)

    His head was so shiny that it's preventing the CCTVs to see what he's actually doing in the table. They thought he was cheating or something.

    The blackjack will do it if they think you are counting cards, same thing happened to Ben Affleck.

    Without a doubt because he counts cards at blackjack

    A few buddies of mine do that and even when they lose 4k they still get banned

    He is what the casinos call an "advantage player" which just means that he beats them out of money. It is pretty common practice for a player that beats a casino more than once, or one time for a bunch of cash to be banned, especially if they have a reputation to begin with.

    hate to go conservative on dat ass but it's a gamblers choice to place a bet... casinos aren't forcing the gambling junkie to do shit
