Just hit a natural seven card straight flush in Vegas on the PaiGow Poker Table. Bonus bet was $10 with a payout of 8000 to 1. Dealer, players, and I were under the impression I would be getting $80,000. The pit boss came over to the table and told me the table had a max payout of $50,000. The max payout was not displayed anywhere at the table and when questioned, the pit boss went to another table and pulled the sign from that table and brought it to our table after the fact. Is there anything that can be done about this or is it better to just take the $50,000 and run?

If there is a slot dispute in Nevada of more than $500, it's supposed to be mandatory gaming is called in. You should talk to gaming and have them mediate your dispute. With slots, they must be involved if asked, so should work for tables too. I dont think accepting $50,000 stops you from disputing not getting $80,000. Act fast, time will be an enemy. I personally do not know whether you are entitled to your claim, but you have the moral high ground in my eyes.

Call Nevada Gaming Control Board Enforcement division. If the sign was not there you have a reasonable argument.

Call NGC, and let us know how it turns out. I'd like to know how they rule. Either way, congrats on the win!

Max aggregate payouts aren't always listed on the table. In fact, it's fairly common.

Add me to the list that says call the Gaming Control Board or insist the casino does. It is important you do this before as soon as possible. Even if you already left, I would still call. Surveillance footage will be able to see whether the max payout sign was on the table. I think the whole case hinges on that.

And please let us know which casino this was. They deserve to properly shamed, based on your account of what happened.

That's no excuse to not pay.

Casinos always make excuses not to pay.

P.S. I'm not suggesting he shouldn't follow up on this though. I'm a huge advocate AGAINST aggregate payouts.
