Is it for the chips in the rack in addition to the chips in player hands?
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Quote: DRich

I was part of the opening team for a small casino in Northern Nevada. My boss told me to drive to the private airport terminal and meet a plane that was carrying the bankroll for the casino cage. It was the most casual unassuming thing. I was to meet Joe outside the terminal and he would hand me the bank to bring back to the casino. I see a guy outside smoking so I walk up to him and ask, "Are you Joe?", he responds with "Are you DRich?". We acknowledge and he hands me a large suitcase. I drive for 45 minutes to the casino and then we count the money. It matches the paperwork and we load the vault and the cage. About two hours later we open the casino.

It was strange to be handed that much money without any real protocol or count. He got back in the jet and flew home while I drove to the casino.

Drich should have had a private plane to Mexico ready.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Good question. Here's my GUESS.

The regulations say there must be cash/treasuries to cover all chips/liabilities.

But a chip in the table bank or in the cage or the vault is NOT YET A LIABILITY until it is sold or paid out to the player.

I'd like to know myself what the actual rule is.

For example, what if a casino ordered a special run of 25th anniversary chips but they won't be issued for another six months? I doubt they'd need cash to back up those yet to be released chips sitting in their vault.

Are we trying to figure out what Mississippi casinos do by reading Nevada regulations? Ok then.

Iím pretty concerned about Jefferson Parish south of New Orleans that is outside the NOLA levee system and where the storm made landfall, hopefully there were few people who stayed, I do believe that parish had mandatory evacuation unlike NOLA but Iím sure that isnít enforced more pressing issues to be concerned with. They lost contact with Grand Isle in Jefferson Parish this afternoon, in Jean Laffite (Jefferson Parish, outside levee) bridge to the community taken out by a now sunken barge and rising water. Hospitals in area are also currently running on generators.

This thing has been a CAT-4 or CAT-3 for over 8 hours now and has been rather slow moving. All the chemical plants between NOLA and Baton Rouge also a bit concerning if they were to sustain significant damage that could potentially release toxic amount of chemicals to into air.

Actual banks are currently having some difficult time getting cash delivered to them. The coin shortage could morph into a dollar shortage. Keep your digital currency going though.

Does hospital wifi work during a statewide power outage but the hospital is on backup generators? I suspect you'll get 0 bars from your cell provider after a few hours..

It is most definitely not a statewide power outage.

The mayor of NOLA can still tweet despite 96% of NOLA in a power outage.
Next up, have the storm drain water pumps stopped working in NOLA? Yes, and the drinking water pumps have lost power too.

Breaking News: Hurricane Ida left all of New Orleans without power Sunday evening due to what the electric company called a "catastrophic transmission damage."
The Times-Picayune reported Ida had already left over 614,000 customers in Louisiana without power before it took out the power in New Orleans. As of 7:15 p.m., all customer in New Orleans were without power.
