Being nice and friendly to the boss, dealers, etc. in general is helpful for those situations that show up in the future where something got messed up.
I have on occassions been asked by security and pitbosses to pay back a bet to dealer from a few hands ago that was incorrectly paid (mainly at blackjack) with no video proof offered.
Here's what Bob Nersesian has to say about it.
Begin listening at 35:00 . In the future, this may be of some value if you find yourself in the situation again.
Don't be so quick to give the money back.
Yeh it was pretty damn rude - I had never seen this happen before and would hope the player be booted if it was made known to dealer/ pit
Probably won't happen. They play favorites when it comes to high rollers. If these Baccarat players were betting black, then the only thing that surprises me is that they didn't make you leave. Happened to me twice.
Once was while passing the Baccarat alcove. One old guy was hitting banker after banker. So I got in on that action by putting a greenie on Banker. It won, and I let it ride. Hit another banker. That's when the old guy said: "He's stealing my luck". He was betting purple. The floor man came over, and made it a private table, and told me to get lost.
The second time was at the Desert Inn (LV, NV) where I and a friend were playing the Don't Pass, and doing very well. He was half drunk, and called out "C'mon seven!" after every point went up. A black chip player who was losing heavily on the Pass line (and making every sucker proposition, covering all the box numbers) complained, and we were backed off. We were red chip players.
The Golden Rule (He who has the gold makes the rules) very much applies.
I thought touching another player's bet was a huge no no, even for big fish. The few times I've seen it, the people involved were sternly (albeit as nicely as a stern message can be delivered) warned not to do it again, and often times it was the player's wife/friend/whatever that was touching the chips. I'd have to think all hell would have broken loose if someone did what you described at the casino I go to, and my local casinos tend to be far less high strung than the Vegas/AC ones I've been to. I can see someone being told to find another table because they were messing with the high rollers' mojo; however I can't imagine the floor letting a player mess with another player's bets no matter the bank roll. In Washington at least the player has to be the last person to touch the bet in order for it to be a legal bet, so they get pretty cranky if someone other than the player messes with the bets.
Yes Ive got no doubt that the dealer or pit would have definately had a few words to say to him if they had noticed it.
It was very poor form to touch my bet, though I can kind of understand how he got carried away with all the excitement around the extreme banker dominance.
That cannot be the case with prop and place bets, among others.Quote: ComplexEnigma

Craps and roulette aren't legal in Washington (outside of reservations) so this isn't an issue.
If he just moved it off if the betting radius because of superstition, I have no clue. But I would hope the casino would kick him off.
I love baccarat, but this is why I hate playing it, it seems to attract the most obnoxious superstitious people. I have never had anyone attempt this on me. But it is pretty "normal" for people to scream at me for "betting against them". Sometimes it gets super awkward especially at a table where everyone thinks like that... I have no clue why but baccarat is like a magnet for those kinds of people...
