As of now, I'm unaware if there were any signs actually inside the casino stating that I had to be 21+, the only "regulation" the casino had was a guard at each entrance that would check ID's. My ID was checked and I was let past the guard and into the casino.
I'm going to say that yes, it is on an Indian Reservation as of the year 2009, the casino was opened in the year 2011. This link is what makes me believe it is an Indian Reservation.
The value of chips that were confiscated from me was $515. $400 that was my own money, and $115 that WAS winnings.
No, I wasn't given a receipt for the gaming chips when they were confiscated
And no, the police wasn't called and I wasn't cited or arrested
No, I was not given a trespass warning or anything related to subject of prosecution. I was told I could get my money back when I turned the age of 21. I got off the phone with them today to request a receipt or document of some sort to verify that they did indeed confiscate my money, they told me that money was no longer mine and was considered "house money"
