Rumor has it that a new reality show is trying to secure the rights to film people gambling without their consent. This weeks question is . . . Would you mind if someone filmed you while you gambled in a casino? Why or Why Not?
Reader Poll Replies:

Personally I do not think I would like someone filming me winning or losing.  Ann T.  FL

No Way.  BTC429

* Would not mind it at all. The reason you visit a place like Las Vegas is to have a few drinks, take in a few shows, have some great food, and not to be forgotten a little gambling. Would love to see myself winning on film.  Tom E. Smith Wheeling, WV

Ye I would mind!  What happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas. I come to Las Vegas to relax & have fun, not to be exploited!  Dolores Kling  Alpine CA

* No I would not mind being filmed without my permission. The way I see it is there are web cams all over the country and I have nothing to hide so why would I mind. If anyone objects it must be because they have something to hide.  Patricia Frink 

* Getting filmed in a casino wouldn't bother me at all -- my one request would be that there be no "rear" shots.  Joanne K

*  Im think it's ok.... if is for security of us too and I like to see myself winning a lot of dollars on TV!  Adalberto Iriarte  Tepic Nayarit Mexico

* if the casino's film you thru their surveillance cameras from above and watch people gambling whats the difference than someone else filming you gambling.  Frank Farias II  Waukegan, IL

I would not want to be filmed while I am gambling in a casino. Letting people scrutinize my habits would enable total strangers to possibly get to know me better than I know myself.  Mike Adams  Cleveland, Ohio

* Yes I would object as someone who sees the film might get the impression that I am a gambler when in reality I am only there for fun. Because of the filming I might be placed in a position of explaining why I was there.  Jerry Steinberg  Owings Mills, MD

* Filming people in Casinos is perfectly legal. It is the right of those filming (like freedom of speech). If you are afraid of being filmed in a casino, then you shouldn't be there. Gambling should be a form of entertainment, being filmed enjoying yourself is perfectly normal. Professional sports athletes are filmed all the time, sometimes they perform well, other times, they wished the cameras were not on. If there were cameras filming in casinos, most of the gamblers would be waving to the cameras...we love it. Lois Chilenko

I wouldn't mind someone taping me. I'd be less nervous & they'd see me being as goofy as I can be, not worried about the cameras if I knew they were watching. I'd be much more relaxed & outgoing. Jennifer Graham

I haven't a problem being filmed while gambling. Gambling is not something I'm trying to keep from those who know me. Neither have I told friends/family I'm going to be elsewhere, only to sneak off the Vegas. HOWEVER, I do not want to be filmed secretly..., let me know you'll be doing it. I don't want to show up on THE TRAVEL CHANNEL scratching my crotch or picking my nose.., and if I win multiple times..., make sure it's obvious I'm also losing. I don't want the IRS visiting me at home, questioning my apparent string of wins - unreported most likely.  Bruce H. Beane  Nashua, NH

* I wouldn't mind...I tell my wife I'm going to Vegas with my friends and she thinks I may be screwing around on her...which I am not...this way she can see for herself I am just gambling with friends...seeing is believing...  Frank Bogardus  Woodland Hills CA

* Nah, who cares if I'm filmed as long as I'm not the main focus of the filming. If I'm an extra in something already being filmed why should I care? I'd rather not have attention drawn to me specifically though. filming. I get scared when a stranger starts at me with a camera. So, just try to keep it simple if I'm an extra in a If it bothers me being filmed by you then I might moon the camera! Hehe!  Lawrence Strehl

* Filming for security reasons, in the casinos is fine, but I would not like to be filmed w/o my knowledge. I would not like to see myself on any types of TV shows. I'm not that type of person.  Some people may be ok w/that, I like to keep a low profile. I don't like being in " the spotlight" good, or bad.   gwizbang
