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.

Does that require offering BJs in the parking lot?

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

I didn't inquire on the specific position requirements, but I expect it's for an all-games dealer.
May the cards fall in your favor.

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.

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.

I once sat down at a slot machine with $350 on it. My sister and brother in law sat next to me. We waited a half hour. No one showed up. So I played it.

I’m not going to comment on the cashing out of other’s tickets.

But I would like to a ask, why not a simple part time gig of delivery driver for a busy pizza place?

Got in a discussion about a week ago with an owner of a couple pizza shops and other fast food places. Told me his part time 3 to 4 nights a week, around 6 or 7 hours a night are making every bit of 400.00 to 500.00 plus a week, and that is their laziest ones. He figures the pay per delivery plus the tips signed for, excluding the cash tips given.

Food for thought. Plus they all get free food nowadays.

I wouldn’t do that job without packing heat.

For the record, I don't go to the casino JUST to salvage tickets, but I am already there so why not add to my profits?

Re delivery driving: there is a delivery app in Canada called Skip the Dishes, which is like our equivalent of Uber Eats, DoorDash, etc. I did this for a while. Not only are you lucky to make minimum wage after your gas costs and car depreciation are taken into account, but you are technically supposed to get commercial insurance for your vehicle if you are going to be doing it. It costs something like an extra $1,000.00 - $2,000.00 to obtain commercial insurance for your vehicle. The vast majority of delivery drivers don't get it, of course, which means if they get into an accident and are honest about their insurance claim, they will get in trouble for not having the proper commercial insurance.

Imagine paying $2,000.00 a year for the privilege of doing a minimum wage job!

That is fine.

The irony is that most jurisdictions what you did will get you kicked out the casino if caught and some jurisdictions consider it criminal.

NYS I know actually has gambling regulations that make it an offense to do what you just described.

However I use other people players cards with the players permission and that's perfectly legal everywhere in the US I am aware of

But everyone thinks I am the one putting myself in legal jeopardy.

I mean, that's the height of irony IMHO.

What I did was a felony but I didn't know. It was more than 20 years ago.

Had the owner of the $350 come back at any time I was prepared to give them cash.

It was a $5 slot. No one showed up.

If it happened today I'd notify an attendant.

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.

No. A check is negotiable instrument, and only becomes a bearer instrument when it's endorsed.

Not if it’s made out to “cash” instead of a person.

Let's ask, what's morally just in the case of usually less than .50 cents left on a machine? (often just a few cents)

I would argue, nothing just actually happens unless it returns directly to the person who leaves it behind.. Just because the state has decided what to do with abandoned funds only makes it legal not morally right.

Under what moral principle do you believe you would be entitled to keep a voucher you found? If you sit down to eat in a diner and someone left their wallet behind, do you have a moral right to it? How about if they left an iPad?
A $100 bill?
I'm just curious why you believe you are entitled to something someone else lost?

I used to play a lot of VBJ at the Hard Rock a few years ago and had a favorite machine that just seemed to pay better than the others at the center bar. It was probably just my imagination but given a choice, it was my preferred machine.
I got there one afternoon and someone was on it. I played a different machine for a spell and then the person left.
As soon as they did, I cashed out my machine, went over and put the voucher in the now vacant machine. I play a few hands and only then did I notice something wrong. My voucher was for seventy dollars, give or take but I have $220 in credits. I'm thinking the machine is paying wrong when it dawns on me there must have been money left in the machine. I didn't know what to do. Had I seen the money was there before I started playing, I'd have alerted the bartender, but now my money was mingled with it. I cashed it all out and left. To this day it still bothers me.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
