Thanks for answering my question, and for making me realize my handle can be easily misread as "Duckies." XD

I always advised the cage personnel at our casinos to ask for SS# when patron is cashing in $3000 or more. The theory being that if they do numerous cahsouts we will already have their number by the time they get over $10,000. We also told them not to worry if the customer refuses to give it until they get over $10,000. If the cashout would take them over $10k for the day, do not pay them until they provide it.

QUESTION: Why do you suppose that gaming tables for Pai Gow Tiles are so hard to find in Macau? From what I hear, it's actually easier to find a game of Caribbean Stud Poker. Even casinos owned by American companies who offer Pai Gow in Vegas don't seem to do so in the Chinese gaming Mecca.

P.S. Please ask Heather for an update on her book. (I think she's procrastinating.)

It wasn't my intention, but I now rather enjoy being called "smooth graph" on the AMA!

What's the best way to use a freebet* in sports betting?

*with betMGM you sometimes may get a promotional free stake for a bet, they call this a freebet, keeping any winnings only, with no playthrough to do

Wizard, you mentioned that to drive to the trailhead for Bridge Mountain a four-wheel-drive vehicle is needed.

In which makes and models of vehicle have you ridden to get there?

QUESTION: I actually saw a pickleball tournament on TV the other day. How popular is this sport? Is it hard finding an empty court when you play? Do sportsbooks take action on pro matches?
