I don't know what is being offered in your neck of the woods, but a casino I passed last week had rented billboards saying that dealers were guaranteed $25/hour minimum.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Does that require offering BJs in the parking lot?

Ahem, I assume you mean dealers offering BlackJacks in the parking lot?

Here in Washington they did have outdoor tents in the parking lot for some cardrooms because they couldn't be indoors do to covid restrictions.

It's okay to admit you're broke using the guise that you're increasing your edge.

I'd never pass up an abandoned ticket.

As I mentioned in another thread, TITO is a bearer instrument - at least in some jurisdictions.

Read the fine print before you get yourself into trouble.

That’s not really the right issue. If I write a check to “cash” and pay someone with it, that check is a bearer instrument. But if someone steals that check and cashes it, that’s still theft.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I don't know if its because of COVID or the coin shortage or a combination, but I was in AC last night and I noticed a lot (and by that all that I used) ticket machines no longer give change. If you have a ticket from a VP machine for 50.25, and redeem at one of the ticket machines it will dispense 50 in bills and then give you another ticket for the change which it says to take to the cashier to get the 25 cents. I would imagine most of these "change tickets" end up in the trash, especially if its an obscure amount (like 2 cents).

People tend to leave tickets for under a dollar even back when you could go to the machine and get it instantly, now that you have to walk to the cage and wait in line to redeem anything less than a dollar, I would imagine increases this even more. I would never take a ticket that is not mine, it seems like it would be a hassle, and depending on the context wrong (and not worth the risk of getting kicked out, I have always been told this is a great way to get banned, no clue if that is true), but I would guess with the end of change being redeemed at ticket machines, opportunities would be an all-time high for people leaving tickets under a dollar all over the place (at least that would be my suspicion, I just can't picture the vast majority of people waiting in line at the cashier for a few cent ticket, so I imagine the trash cans by the ticket machines have stashes of few cent "change tickets" in them).

I think it's pretty hilarious that people who would never use another person's players card because they consider it borderline illegal and don't want to get kicked out of casinos will have no problem swiping abandoned Tito's.

About ten years ago, the Orleans had a check cashing promo where you could win various prizes. If you won nothing, you could use the ticket on blackjack so a winning $5 bet paid $6. Most of these non-winning tickets would end up in the trash right by the cashier. At the end of the night, there were perhaps a few hundred of these slips in the trash. I thought about approaching the guys who took out the trash, but wasn't sure what to offer them nor was I sure how the pit would deal with someone sitting down with that many of them. They didn't say one per person.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
