For casino promotions that still use regular tickets in a real drum (not the electronic ones) where you print your tickets at the players desk and put them into the drum -- do you bend / crease your tickets before you put them into the drum? Do you think that the bent ones have a better chance of being picked?

Bend me if you got em.
Bend in half, not fold in half.
A gentle crease down the middle like a beautiful woman in yoga pants.

There is a better chance they will gab a bent or crimped ticket. This was a normal thing for AP's. Slightly bending them may not last long and they can flatten out so crimping works well. Its a pain in the ass to get them into the drum like that however. Especially if you have thousands.

A few casinos started avoiding Bent tickets since this was an AP move.

I think it is Plaza that has a specific rule about bending or folding tickets.

I dunno, I see a lot of people doing it who I'm willing to bet aren't APs.

Obviously others do it sometimes. AP's most of the time, It was local casinos avoiding bent tickets and this was years ago.

Well that's just not true, it would be the same surface area. Just a different shape in 3 dimensions.

I meant volume or is that wrong too? It works though and I would do it unless I knew the rules forbid it. Sometimes some I wouldn't if I felt the chooser might intentionally avoid them.

I do half and half usually
