There's really no need for cash out tickets in small change anymore. The coin shortage is over for other businesses.

Canada doesn't even have cash below $5 bills. I wonder how they're doing. Is there a Loony & Toony coin shortage? Would vouchers in Canada not pay out coins so you get the nearest lowest $5 increment?

It sounds like a B.S. case to me. I don't know of a single casino that wouldn't give you the change. They just made you go to the cage to do it. If you are too lazy to go to the cage, shame on you.

I'll have to stop reporting coin amounts in my gambling diary.

The machines are for convenience. A casino does not have to and shouldn't be required to keep them full of coins. You want coins, go to the cage.

I agree. The machines are for our convenience AND FOR THE CASINOS TO SAVE ON LABOR COSTS.

But the question is are the casinos refusing to stock their machines in an effort (plot, scheme) to take advantage of players who don't want to trek to the cage?

Meanwhile, have the casinos restored their cage staffing to pre pandemic levels?

If there is a lack of cage service, and a planned effort not to restore coins to the redemption machines, is the lawsuit wrong?

At Red Rock there are rarely more than two windows open at the cage, and there is a Disneylandline waiting.

At Suncoast also two windows open BUT SUNCOAST GIVES COINS AT ITS MACHINES and it is a much smaller casino than Red Rock.

Someone has to load money into the cash machines anyway.. They can't load coins?
Fair is fair, if unprovable claims are insisted to be true, one should be able to use unprovable methods of debunking.

There's been an actual coin shortage and I have no indication that it's over. Maybe #coinshortage signs are taken down temporarily. Casinos are special cases with banks in that they need an extraordinary amount of coins. If banks can't even keep a couple hundred dollars of quarters in stock, they certainly can't keep businesses in stock.

Conditions at casinos suggest people are tossing their coin vouchers into the charity bin or just leaving sub-$1 credits on the machines. I cash my coin vouchers by depositing them into the slot machine on the next visit or by going to the cage before I leave.

Every store I shop at that uses automation of cash payments has no problem having coins returned when you buy something and there is no cashier. The question is who is being lazy here.

How many vacationers are already back home when they find an uncashed ticket for those that don't live in town.
