Can I Film Myself Playing Slot Machines in a Casino?

There are going to be lots of things you can do in a casino, depending of course where those casinos are. If you are in Vegas then you can drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes and even sit there singing whilst playing a slot machine, as long as you are not making a nuisance of yourself.

However, you may fancy filming yourself playing a slot machine, and if you pop over to YouTube then you will find hundreds of people have uploaded videos of themselves doing just that.

It is though, going to be up to the casino you are playing in and any rules they have in place as to whether they will permit you to film yourself playing.

The most forward thinking casinos will never object to your filming yourself playing, as long as you have the camera facing towards just the slot you are playing, and not filming other people, so if you do intend to film yourself playing slots then try not to accidentally get other people in your cameras field of vision!

There are some casinos however that will not permit you to film anything inside their casino, obviously the security personnel will have to catch you filming, but if they do they will usually just bring to your attention that you are not permitted to film in that venue, and won’t turf you out of the door for doing so!

If you are playing in any casino and do win a huge jackpot then the casino will probably have no problem with you filming the slot or at the very least taking some pictures of yourself and that slot machine.

In fact, don’t be too surprised to find a Casino Host suddenly appear and offers to take a picture for you and ask whether they can also take a picture of your with hat slot machine and your winnings and use it for publicity on their winners wall of fame!

It will probably be best for you to ask permission to film in any casino you are thinking of playing in, however I have found that is you ask a Casino Host for example they will say of course you can film, however the security team may not allow you do so!

Experience has taught me that you may as well just start to film yourself playing a slot machine if you want to and then see if you are approached by any casino personnel who may inform you not to do so.

But be warned, if you try and hide you video camera or cell phone when filming yourself playing slot machines or even go to the lengths of buying a pair of glasses that have a video camera hidden inside them you are likely to attract the attention of the security team!

If you do the casino security personnel may spot you trying to hide your camera or phone or wearing oversized glasses and wonder what it is you are hiding, you will as sure as night follows day then attract a lot of attention from the security team who may think you are up to no good!
