I was paid on a table limit blackjack where I tossed down two face cards (I had a 20, not a blackjack), and the dealer even hit all the way to 21, still paid me 3:2 a monstrous bet. I kept waiting for someone to show up to reclaim the chips, but it never happened.

Come to think of it, nowadays you can't even touch the BJ cards anymore even at double deck at least not anyplace I can think of, so this could never happen again. It was the psychology of how I tossed those cards down - and, I really was so relieved at what I had been dealt, given the huge bet, and certain that I was going to get paid, that this certainty transmitted "a snapper" to the dealer's brain, such that he paid me on a loser.

The most mistake-laden dealer I've seen had to have been at the Colorado Belle in Laughlin... I swear, she must've been drunk or high to have performance like that.

I only stuck around for two shuffles off a double-deck with two people, but in that brief time, I had: Cards pitched right off the table, multiple cards pitched at once, cards dealt nowhere near me (over a space away), skipped getting my second card dealt, skipped receiving my first card dealt (and thus my entire hand), got paid on a losing hand, (almost) got money taken on a winning hand, pushed a losing hand, got a mispay.

And my favorite: When checking for blackjack with an ace up, she didn't stick the card in the viewfinder. Instead, she shoved it against the chiprack about an inch and a half away from the viewfinder, looked down, adjusted the cards again, moving it about an inch closer this time, and declared it was fine.

If I think the dealer is making a mistake in my favor, I usually just keep my mouth shut. Dealer is trained and paid to do his job and I'm just a country bumpkin who doesn't want to ask ignorant questions that slow the game down.

I know my Uncle, who dealt all casino games in Reno for many years, would say to me
it would look like, to some, that you are in collusion with the Dealer to cheat the casino when you say NOTHING about a Dealer paying you when you actually lost.

He told me a story when a few players and all the Dealers were arrested for cheating and it was up to the players to say why they did not report a Dealer mistake when it happened.
I do not recall the actual outcome, but I would HATE, with a passion, to be arrested for a Dealer's mistake and be accused of being in on the cheating!

I NOW point out all mistakes to the Dealer at the table when I think I see one
and do not care who gets pissed off.
I really hope you are NEVER at one table I might be at.

I am sorry for letting Dealer mistakes go in the past, never will happen again, unless I am drinking and gambling. And I do do that

the truth is what it is

The correct thing for them to say is first "I remain silent, I want my lawyer," and then "I would like to press charges against whomever filed a false police statement."

Trusting the expert opinion of an expert is not collusion. Especially when they were hired by the opposite side.

This is almost certainly a myth, possibly spread by the house to try to coerce players into not accepting dealer mistakes.

Interesting, because I would have corrected her on each mistake to me. I guess everyone has different morals.

I fail to see how you can let the casino occupy the moral high ground since they will kick me out and bar me forever just because I can do grade school math in my head.

is NOT a casino a business to make money for themselves
and provide taxes
and employment for many and a nice environment for those that visit them.

It appears to me, you STATE something as fact for ALL casinos and that is not true, bad!
that is so sad!
not all casinos do and are as you say. where IS your proof of that
come on
bad!

does the money you win from one casino go to pay taxes (I doubt that. keep that a secret. it is your $$$)
and provide jobs for many?
even provide for enjoyment for those that visit a casino?

I thought not
bad!

it may appear to be an accident and it should be kept that way.
Dealers and players do rip-off (cheat) against casinos.

So, a business that chooses to have rules is immoral? I guess that means a restaraunt that doesn't allow substations is immoral. And a store that doesn't accept checks is immoral. How about a bank that charges an account fee?

But let me guess... places that sell cigarettes and alcohol...they're moral. Churches that coax money out of people or hide sexual abuse. Good holy places, right? Got any car salesman friends? They sell the same car to different people for different prices. Moral?

Try not blaming other things for the way you behave. Do the right thing because it's the right thing to do. You aren't born with any rights to make your own rules in someone else's business. If you are ok with a businesses rules and like the way they treat you, go there. If you don't, don't. But don't play holier than thou when its convenient for you. I would not accept a mistake in my favor if I knew about it at the time at any business.
