Casinos Can And Will Limit and Ban Winning Players

How do casinos handle winning players?Here is another question that is often asked in the "live" and online casino world:

Do casinos ban players for winning too much?

Now, casinos will often be cagey in their answers to this question, or they might even outright lie.

Casinos don't want to come right out and say that they ban winning players, as that would be bad for business.

Instead, they'll usually give a non-answer and move on to something else.

The reality, however, is that casinos (online and live) will both absolutely either limit or ban players for winning too much.

That's a fact.

Here is a well-publicized example - Dana White.

Dana White, who is the President of the UFC, is a notorious gambler.

More specifically, Dana White loves to play blackjack and has been known to win millions of dollars.

Now, Dana White has both been limited and banned from casinos for winning too much.

In one instance, a casino decided to limit White to $5,000 per blackjack hand, and he vowed to never return.

In other instances, casinos have outright said that White is no longer welcome.

The reason? White won too much money at the blackjack tables.


Casinos have been known to outright ban people for winning too much, though the most common scenario is when they limit a person's bets.

For instance, if you are betting $1,000 a hand playing blackjack and winning a bunch of money, the casino might inform you that they are limiting you to just $100 per hand.

Or, if you are betting on sports, a sportsbook might limit you to just $100 per bet.

This is standard practice, as much as the casinos might try to deny it.


Casinos are in the business of making money, and if someone is costing them a great deal of money, they will take steps to limit the damage.
