I plopped down a $10 matchplay and a $10 bill on the Pass Line at a casino that will remain nameless. The shooter rolled an immediate come-out eleven. Winner winner buffet dinner! The dealer paid me, I scooped everything up, tipped the dealers $1, and walked away. I met my nephew who was playing the slots, and we went over to the cashier to cash in my chips. Only then did I notice that I had SIX red chips, not four...AND the $10 bill...and I still had the coupon!
Now, obviously, I should have gotten paid four red chips, and they should have taken the matchplay coupon. They had plenty of time to fix the error, though, since I stuck around long enough to throw them a dollar--so it seems like they didn't realize their mistake (or, quite possibly, the dollar toke kept them from acknowledging it?). I didn't really know what to do--going back to the table and handing them $10 and saying, "Hey, you overpaid me five minutes ago" seemed like it would feel really weird. I thought of going back and betting that $10 on a two-way hardway or something, but that didn't seem right either. So I just walked out, and to add insult to injury, I gave the coupon to my nephew, who went back the next day and used it to win a bet at blackjack (the coupon was collected by the dealer).
I feel like I was ethically obligated to go back and return the overpaid amount no matter how much time had elapsed--but the fact remains, I didn't. What would y'all do in a similar situation?
I'd just keep the money since most dealer mistakes favor the house in the long run, all life is 6:5 against.
What do you WANT to do? Keep it or return it? I assume you want to avoid getting the dealers in trouble.
If you'd rather keep it, with the casino's blessing, go around the side of the pit and tell the pit boss what happened, and ask him what you should do.
If you'd rather return it, go to the cage, and tell the manager there the same sting, and offer them the money.
They will eventually stiff you, if they haven't already.
A few months ago at the Palms my wife and I both put $10 each on the pass line with match-play coupons, and out rolled an 11. After eating, we cashed out, and realized we were $10 short.
So maybe it all works out in the end.
He told me so.
Ah, but what evidence do you have that it was Him talking? Maybe it was just the beer.
None. Don't forget the Celestial Get Out Of Jail Free Card of the Catholic Church. The act of penance and contrition.
BTW if stuck in the desert w/o a priest you can confess directly to God.
I thought that if you don't make it to confession before you die, then you have to work off the time in purgatory (not to be confused with hell) for your sins since your last confession. According to "Growing Up Catholic" you have to serve 257,890 years for stealing a candy bar. Since I've never been to confession I don't have a the get out of jail card at all.

Just don't think you can set my soul to run laps for you :P
