    I've been lucky enough to have never been back-roomed, evicted from my hotel (typically because I almost never play where I stay), arrested or assaulted. But I've fallen victim to everything else. The last time I was evicted from a P*N*K property, I was told I could face criminal charges for tresspassing. Even though I was not read a statute, nor was I asked to sign anything, I'll consider that as a trespass. And I have no intentions of going back to call their bluff LOL.

    Not sure the trespass was necessarily legal, though, not allowed to play any game might be construed as such, though not legally so.

    One of my local backoffs was not allowed any casino game, though allowed on propert for dining and entertainment.

    Don't see flat bet, either at minimum bet or your first bet is you're bet for the entire shoe.backoff in a sense.

    Yeah, I'm not sure what legal recourse they would have against me if I came back for a third visit. On my first visit, I was backed off, escorted off the property, and was told I was permanently banned from the premises. On my second visit, I was escorted out again and told I could be arrested next time for trespassing. Maybe they're full of shit and they're just trying to scare me, but I'm not sure I want to find out. They have a great DD game, but it isn't worth the possible arrest and aggravation. There's plenty of other good games out there.

    Flat bet is a special case of restricted spread, I suppose, but it might be interesting to see how many have experienced this particular restriction.

    I picked limited spread for times I've had a flat bet restriction.

    I've also experienced a restriction that my bet could be no more than 3 times my previous bet. I believe this restriction was for all patrons at this particular casino.

    Never in my home locale. At least 3 times in Vegas. Don't think anywhere else. Vegas is much quicker to act. Think they do it even when they're not sure.

    You could add in cancellation of comps which has happened to me a few times.

    Added. If anyone that has already voted wants to add that to their vote, I can add it.
