Finders Keepers?

After an influx of calls to the editorial staff of regarding found money on a casino floor, we thought we’d resurrect an oldie but a goodie.

Here is the scenario: you approach a slot machine, and you find credit or a ticket in the EGD, or a ticket with value anywhere else on the gaming floor. What do you do? If there is money left on a machine when you first walk up to it, you should notify the casino staff. If you have already started playing on the machine, then you realize there are more credits than you have won or bought-in for, stop playing immediately and notify the casino staff. The staff may be able to review their records to determine whose money it is and return it to them. If a person intentionally takes the property of another and deprives the rightful owner of its use, that person may be arrested for stealing. This also applies to tickets and cash left in the machines or found on the casino floor. If you know who it belongs to, please give it back. If you don’t know who it belongs to, notify the casino security staff so they can try to identify the rightful owner. Try to follow the Golden Rule- Someday the found money may be yours.

Problem Gambling Conference


P.O. Box 105812 Jefferson City, MO 65110;

Free Problem Gambling Help Line 1-888-BETSOFF

June 19, 2018

Regional Conference on Addiction Convenes for 15th Year

This year marks the 15th annual Midwest Conference on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse. What began as a training opportunity in 2003 has evolved into a meeting of minds focused on strengthening community-based treatment programs throughout the Midwest region. This year’s conference takes place June 20-22 at the Kansas City Airport Hilton.

“We are still in the midst of a nationwide opioid crisis, and the World Health Organization just recently classified video gaming as a mental health condition,” said Carol Spiker, president of the Midwest Consortium on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse. “This conference is as relevant as ever.”

Spiker said that this year’s theme, “Inspiring Recovery-Focused Outcomes,” encompasses a universal goal shared by all healthcare providers.

“Recovery is the end result that clinicians and healthcare providers strive for with their clients afflicted with addiction,” said Spiker. “Too often, the weight of ever-evolving public health challenges can feel overwhelming, and this year’s conference hopes to broaden our attendees’ understanding of these issues.”

The Midwest Consortium recognizes a five-state region – Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma – but attendees from across the country attend the Conference each year. For a complete list of workshop sessions, presenters and conference information, visit
