Confusion at Rivers

Some friends and I went to Rivers Casino last night (I ended up in the black for the night…less than a dollar in the black, but a win is a win!) and I was confused.

First of all, I could not find the Star Wars slots, which made me really sad.  I did however, find the Survivor slot machines, which were a lot of fun, and I tended to win a lot on them!

My confusion however, came when we first stepped off the elevator.  We were greeted by employees checking IDs.  Hadn’t done that before, but I can certainly understand it.  I was given a purple bracelet, as were two of my friends, the third was not.  When asked what they were for, we were greeted with blank stares.  The only discernible pattern was that the one friend who didn’t get a band is a woman.  Two that got bands were players club members, as well as one who wasn’t.  Anyone have any ideas?

    The only answer I know of is that the bands are for people who look under 30 years of age for ID reasons. Does the female look older that 30?

    Everytime I’ve gone I have seen ppl with wrist bands but had no clue what they are for. I’m a woman and never got one, my sister is also under 30 and never got one. And our IDs are always checked. Mystery to me.

    @andy Not particularly, none of us really do, at least I think!

    Thanks to both of you, I’ll chalk it up to the crazy rush of people we were in as we came off the elevators, but maybe it’s just a mystery.
