Nevada’s longstanding partnership with gambling is also reflected in its criminal laws as well. For example, did you know that stealing $5 from a wallet is misdemeanor theft, but stealing a $5 chip off a poker table in a casino is a felony?
If you took credit from a casino and can’t repay it, the District Attorney’s Office can act as a bona-fide debt collector with the threat of prison hanging over your head. Criminal charges can be brought even if the casino gave you excessive liquor before offering you a line of credit.
