In Nevada, does a pit boss have the right to close a table game while there are still players playing? I was surprised to be told that my game (DJ Wild) will be closing in 20 minutes due to not having enough (graveyard) dealers. The real reason they are too cheap to pay OT.

Ive witnessed this. I think the casino loses money unless its a higher min. Table.

I would guess they can do anything they want....within law.

I forgot the exact details, but at the Peppermill Reno, a pit boss stated the intention to close a pai gow tiles table. I can't remember if they closed it when players were done, or if the time was something like 1 a.m.

I can see combining tables but to close the only game while there are multiple players was puzzling. Even with OT, the table most likely will make money. Fortunately they never closed it since another game broke. But if they were going to close it, I was going to purposely walk out and go home, leaving my $1200 on the table. The pit boss would had to wait thinking I would come back and would had to finally fill out paperwork to send my chips to the cage.

Wow, that's really tough of you. You would have shown them.

Better yet, leave $1200 on multiple tables. That will show them.
My Grandma used to tell of a time the circus came to town and after the parade, some elephant dung was in front of the house. When no one from the circus would clean it, she set off on a campaign of revenge.
Long story short, she bought front row seats and didn't use them. That certainly showed those suckers.

I do not see why they would not be allowed to do so. How is that different from closing any service? Restaurants in casinos close. A shoe shine stand in a casino could close at off hours. They gave polite notice they had to close the table, what is the issue?

I agree. They are offering a game. They can choose not to offer it at any time. It's really no different than their ability to stop accepting your bets if they choose.

Casino is 24hr. Gaming is different from food service. Here in Nev, when they have pool parties or cover charges to areas where there is gaming, you cannot be stopped from playing. You bypass the long line to enter and dont pay a cover if you say you are there to play. I know this scenario is a bit different. But to your point, if they decide to close a game while there are still players playing, then they need to close EVERY game.

I have to contact gaming or try to see if there is anything mentioned in our NRS statue
