Is Counting Cards a Bannable Offense?

A person is kicked out of the casino for card counting.  Illustration.This is a question that I often hear asked from people - can I get banned from a casino for counting cards?

The answer is a most definite YES.

A casino can not only ban you if they discover that you are counting cards, but they can also ban you even if they SUSPECT you of counting cards.

A casino can choose to keep you out of their casino for any reason that they want. In fact, they don't even have to give you a reason - if you are banned, then you are not able to set foot inside of the casino unless they agree to reverse their decision.

On top of that, one company may own a number of different casino properties, so if you are banned at one casino, then you could also be simultaneously banned at any number of others.

If that wasn't bad enough, you could even find yourself on an automatic exclusion/ejection list from ALL casinos in the state if your offences are deemed to be bad enough.


In short - a casino can ban you for any reason, and they can certain elect to eject/ban you if they suspect you of counting cards. Again, they don't even have to be certain that you are counting cards - they can eject/ban you based on suspicion alone.
