The question is whether it's intentional or not even if someone spoke to you. Machines wind up with bad tickets, I don't think it's usually anything.

It just occurred to me that I've been locked out on tickets, but still no one ever asked for ID to cash them. Well over a $1000 dollars several times.

When you say "locked out" are you just talking about a ticket that the amount is higher than the TITO machine will accept? If so, that's really not a locked out ticket.

I was under the impression that Romes ticket was locked out due to suspicious activity.

There are innocent lockouts

For example the barcode could simply be damaged or unreadable.

But an AP should use his judgment in a scenario like this. Better safe than sorry.

It will be nothing but self-recriminations if Romes shrugs off his paranoia, goes to the cashier and is told a higher up wants to speak with him all the while security guards are getting into position from every side about 35 feet away (yes thats how they do it. This sneaking into position is so obvious its hilarious--unless you are waiting for the pounce. Then its just nerve wracking

Do they ever say anything than "Please see cashier" on the little reject screen?

Maybe his said, "We gonna get ya sucker".

I can confirm this ticket is locked because of the play/machine I was on, not by accident, nor by amount over $1200 which "some" casinos make you take those tickets to the cage to cash for CTR considerations.

I'm in the middle of a long Vegas trip, winning all week so far, so not going to argue with Romes too much as I haven't the time, but;

Probably from staying hydrated and hitting and running, right? What would I know about AP'ing and the laws surrounding it...

When I wrote my prior message, I thought we were talking about a $3000 ticket. If it were a $300 ticket, that is a lot more complex.... Scary even.

Romes implied that the ticket was greater than $500 and less than $1200.

Last week I was visiting a nearby area that will remain nameless and the casino demanded ID to cash a ticket for right at $1000. I gave them my ID, they scanned it and gave me money... I didn't think twice because it was near a hand pay amount. Im 100% certain the card in play was not in my name.

$500 is kind of marginal in that situation because I don't know the cash out machines well in that area.

In one casino local to me, all the machines but one will send you to the cage for $500... $20s are the biggest bill they pay... It's a super classy joint... You should see how they sweat blackjack there. Funny enough, the one machine that does cash out big tickets will spit out $1500 which is the friendliest cash out machine I'm aware of. They put $100s in that machine so I'm thinking it's not an accident.

On the other side of the equation, I just ran across a cash out machine recently that does not issue coins. It gave me all the paper money and it sent me to the cage for 22 cents. I thought that was a pretty slick tactic.
