Uniquely Las Vegas: Nonpayment of Casino Markers

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but some mistakes can follow you home.

If you fail to pay back a casino marker or pass a bad check in Las Vegas, the matter is referred to the Clark County District Attorney’s office for prosecution. If the bad check or marker was for more than $250, you will be prosecuted for a felony. A warrant will be issued for your arrest.

Help With Gambling-Related Warrants

Maningo Law represents clients from across Nevada, throughout the U.S. and around the world who are charged with this uniquely Las Vegas crime. Many had no idea that they were the subject of a felony warrant — until it became a problem. The warrant may have surfaced when a police officer ran their driver’s license after a traffic stop.

Maningo Law frequently represents people from outside the U.S. who cannot obtain a visa to enter the country because of a warrant related to the non-payment of a casino marker.


You don’t have to be a high roller to find yourself with a Las Vegas felony warrant for failure to pay a casino marker. It can – and does – happen to anyone.
