Gambling in Las Vegas
Can my spouse / child / friend who is under 21 gamble with me if I'm over 21?
Under what obscure circumstances can someone under the age of 21 legally gamble in Las Vegas?
Since this STILL seems to be our most commonly asked question we would like to reiterate: NO ONE under the age of 21 is legally permitted to gamble or to loiter in or about ANY gambling area under ANY circumstances. They WILL be asked for picture ID and likely escorted out of the area or off the property, or in some circumstances conceivably even arrested and fined, if caught.
It does NOT matter if an over 21 spouse, parent, concubine or nursemaid constantly accompanies them, holds their hand, pushes, drags or carries them.
It does NOT matter if your 21st birthday is coming up next week.
It does NOT matter if you were just married, divorced, or neutered.
It does NOT matter if you are over 21 in "dog years".
It does NOT matter if you have only days left to live and will likely never make it to your 21st birthday.
It does NOT matter if you're from another state, country or planet where gambling is permitted under the age of 21.
It does NOT matter if your father is ruler of his own country or your mother is a famous actress.
It does NOT even matter if you plan to gamble an amount equivalent to the Gross National Product of a small country.
The law is the law. We do hope this serves to answer this question completely.
