Thank you for choosing Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino as your entertainment destination. While we are committed to keeping your personal affairs private, we are required by federal law to record your valid picture identification for all Title 31 reportable transactions. This allows us to complete the required forms to ensure our compliance with Title 31 as outlined by Federal Regulations.
Certain businesses, such as casinos, are required to report large cash transactions with customer identification information to the Treasury Department under Title 31 regulations. Title 31 is part of the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 that is designed to prevent money laundering.
So, when you win big, for transactions that need to be reported, you will be asked to provide a valid state- or government-issued picture ID and proof of a Social Security number (for U.S. citizens).
Non-U.S. citizens need a Passport, Alien Identification Card, or other official document evidencing nationality or residence
