Gambling Age Restrictions
It is state law that all gamblers must be at least 21 years of age. Everyone is required to bring to casinos a valid ID that shows your current age or complete date of birth (e.g. driver's licence, passport). Photocopies won’t be accepted, and in-house security makes rounds of the casino floors to check compliance.
Underage Nightly Curfew
A curfew is in place and is strictly enforced in Las Vegas. Children under 18 may not be out past 10 pm on weekdays and midnight on weekends unless accompanied by an adult, and the metro police regularly transport violators to a juvenile center. With some exceptions, hotels and casinos with on-site gambling will not allow anyone under 21 to reserve a room. For those of age 18-20 it is highly recommended you research and reserve in advance of arrival.
If You Win...
Chances are that if you win big in Vegas and you are not a U.S. citizen, your winnings will be subject to a 30% withholding tax from the IRS. That $10,000 slots win can dwindle quite quickly if that is taken off the top. Not to worry though, you can reclaim your taxed gambling winnings by submitting a 1042-S form. You should get this from the casino so don’t lose it...it is your ticket to getting your winnings back!
Most casinos have ATMs and over-the-counter cash facilities, but beware the charges set by your bank and the machine operator or establishment. ATMs in casinos may charge exorbitant fees for withdrawals.
