Thatís egregious, and if what they told you is 100% true, I would post the name of the manufacturer so we can hopefully inundate them with E-Mails about this. If I were you, Iíd contact them directly and tell them the casino since the casino staff is putting it on them.



I suppose very technically, those aren't progressives. the jackpot amount is a set number that the meter ascends toward.

When casinos are going to shut down in NV they are supposed to give out ALL the progressive money players have funded. They never account for all the small progressive meters. In some situations it adds up to thousands of dollars. Oh well, it is what it is.

I recall one did random drawings for cash prizes to those in attendance on the last day.

I've always thought 6/5 being a thing in the first place was shady. Obviously there's some bias here though. When 6/5 is how a table operates and it isn't clearly marked at all times like on the felt, a sign or an electronic message that does not leave the screen, that really rustles my jimmies.

Additionally, using the phrasing that a wager pays 2 for 1 vs 2 to 1. I've seen both players and casino personnel become confused by this and think it's a completely unnecessary semantic trap.

I do recall a dealer once telling me they could accept gift cards on direct provided they were in an envelope. Is that true at your casino? Does it depend on the particulars of the conversation? For argumentís sake, what if a player asked one of your dealers directly if he or she could give a gift card?



At my property, if they can eat it, drink it, smoke it, wear it, or drive it, they can accept it. Everything else goes into the pool.
