Casino Markers in Las Vegas
Are You Being Accused of Debt Evasion?
Las Vegas is the city of gambling and high stakes. For people who want
to stay in the game or put more money on the table than they have in their
wallets, specialty lines of credit known as casino markers can be utilized.
A casino marker is typically a short-term, interest-free cash loan that
needs to be repaid promptly – about two to four weeks later. To
access such a cash loan, you must apply to the casino in a way similar
to that of a credit application.
While a casino marker certainly has its benefits, it has proven too good
an offer too many times. Due to the high rate of people leaving Las Vegas
with no intention to ever repay the casino for its loan, the act of evading
the debt has been slammed by the criminal justice department and labeled
as a felony in most cases. If you have inadvertently failed to repay a
casino its debt – or if you believe you are being falsely accused
of exaggerated claims by the casino that loaned you money – you
need to take legal action right away.

Penalties for Unpaid Casino Markers
If you have failed to pay your casino marker within the allotted time,
you might not be in immediate legal trouble. In many cases, the casino
will notify you of your outstanding loan and request that you make a payment
within the next month equal to the amount owed plus interest, which can
be over 20%. If you still do not pay back the casino marker, a warrant
will be created for your arrest and you will be facing punishments by means of:
- Restitution fees paid to the casino
- Fines paid to Nevada State
- Damaged credit score
