    Anyone from Reno, NV?

    Was wondering how the sports mobile apps were up there? In particular, Atlantis and Baldini's.

    I am from Las Vegas and took a trip up there to fund some accounts.

    I funded an account at Atlantis and Baldini's.

    Carson Valley Inn does not have a mobile app.

    Peppermill shocked me.

    I went there and asked to open an account, started filling out my paperwork, and then the book manager came out and told me that he could not give me an account.

    I asked what the issue was and he told me I could not have one since I'm from Las Vegas.

    I said "So you have to live in Reno to have a mobile account?" He said "No, you can have one from anywhere in Nevada, but we do not want any players at all from Las Vegas."

    I was speechless. The biggest casino in the whole city is afraid to take ANY player from Las Vegas. Absolutely pathetic! What a bunch of sissies!

    I live in Las Vegas but I have used all of those apps from there.

    Peppermill is a joke when it comes to the app considering they will take a dime or two over the counter but are scared to take a 100 bet or so on the app. They cut me off pretty quickly on the app also when I had nothing major either with bets ranging from 100-500 only on it.

    Baldinis limits are not bad considering the size of the place but once you are limited you can look forward to 100-300 limits only. The lines can be very skewed which is a good out to have.

    Atlantis Reno also will limit very quickly but those limits can range from 200-2000 when it happens. They have a nice comp policy when playing on the app too.

    **UPDATE** PEPPERMILL SET MY BET LIMIT TO $0 FOR ALL WAGERS. I called them and I spoke to a person that identified himself as "John" he said that they have closed all accounts from customers from Las Vegas. I told him that i have been a customer there for over a year. He called me a fukkin asshole and hung up the phone.

    That's pathetic, but not surprising.

    The exact thing happened to a friend of mine also. He is from Las Vegas not up much betting parlays and nothing more than $200 bets and his limits were set to $0. He called and the guy was friendlier than yours he told them accounting only wanted locals and/or casino players.

    My other buddy went up there for the weekend and they told him he could no longer bet over the counter he is maybe up there 4-5 times a year too he was told the same B/S also.

    On a side note the book is beautiful and the place is nice but what good is that if you cannot make a bet.

    It looks very nice but as soon as I was denied last August, I cancelled all of my reservations, gambled and spent my money elsewhere.

    Screw them.

    How are your limits at Baldini's Frank? I am lucky to get down anywhere from 100-200 on most things....

    200 on just about everything besides NFL.

    I rarely use them but keep some there in case I see a good number and grab a piece of a bet.
