If you hit a big jackpot at a casino, do you need your SS card?

Jump to last reply

Over the weekend my Mom and I drove 2 hours from her home in NE TX to Shreveport, LA and spent the day at the casinos. When we got to Shreveport, Mom was very upset to discover she had left her SS card at home. She said if you hit a big jackpot and you don't have your SS card with you, then you cannot collect.

I have a very hard time believing this. It seems like it would be an easy task these days to get on the computer and verify someone's SS#. Does anyone have any first hand experience?

BTW, in our case it was a non-issue. The gambling gods were not good to us. But it was a fun day anyway.
