Just another tip I found, and saw again on TV. I didn't realize you didn't have to carry a pictured ID/SSAN with you to gamble. You can go back to collect if you win and they require it. This is some good info. Kandee
You should always bring along a photo ID with your current address and something with your name and social security number on it. The IRS requires the casinos to get this information if you hit a jackpot at a machine or do extremely well at the tables. However, don't carry the document bearing your social security number around with you. If your name, address, and SSN fall into the wrong hands you could become the victim of "credit identity theft". (You shouldn't carry your Social Security card in your wallet or purse at all anymore because this applies everywhere, not just Las Vegas. Also check any health insurance cards or school IDs you may have in your wallet. They also often have your SSN on it.) Leave your SSN document in your room, locked in your suitcase. If you do hit it big, the casino will be glad to hold onto your winnings while you go back to your room to get the document.
