A lot of Coloradans like going "up the hill" to Blackhawk, Central City, or Cripple Creek to gamble, but many have gotten in hot water over a little known Colorado law.
Colorado Statute 12-47.1-823(1)(c) says that casinos own lost, forgotten or abandoned “property” inside their establishments. This means playing abandoned slot credits left on machines by other customers, cashing in credit vouchers found on the floor, or finding forgotten or dropped chips can get you arrested.
As a matter of fact, in the last five years, 930 casino customers in Colorado have been busted for these crimes.
So the next time you think you've "won" a couple of bucks that someone else has left behind, think again, and leave it alone!!
