Casino pics -- Has anyone heard of this...?

According to our wedding planner, apparently the casino can lose its gaming license if photographs are taken in the casino.  I thought that sounded a little funny, especially considering it is the resort's own photographer.  [Seems more like the casino doesn't want pictures taken to avoid people trying to cheat.]

Has anyone heard of this?  We really want at least a couple pictures at a table -- obviously,  we figured one that wasn't open at the time.  Something seems fishy...

    That's one of the downsides to using the casino's photographer; they may have to abide by that rule since their job is on the line, but it doesn't have anything to do with a gaming license, just security policy.

    Most people on here tend to just take the pics and not ask because the answer isn't no until you ask. Smile  Typically the casino will only make an issue of it if you have the cashier area in the background.  We took some pictures in Mandalay's casino with our entire wedding party around an empty craps table, facing into the middle of the casino, not towards the cashier, they didn't say anything and we were there at least two or three minutes.  They probably would have said no if we had asked to take pictures first though; so best to find a photographer who will do it, get in your pose quickly and take the pics before they can say anything.

    We had no problems taking some casino pictures. We stopped at a table and slot machine. Like VG said it goes so quick even if security did get called you'd be out of there by the time they get there.

    Me too; as we took countless pics with all the various relatives' cameras who wanted a picture of the wedding party and ceremony, I was just thinking to myself when do we get to go take the craps table shot?!?!  lol

    I can't find anything to suggest that's the case.

    In '09 someone was detained by security guards for taking photos in a casino and the police forced them to release him because "he had not broken any laws":
