Talked to Tuscany dealer the other day. Was on dayshift. Says he spun the ball. During the spin, the boss walked over, reached his hand into the wheel and grabbed the ball. Told the dealer to change the ball and spin again. Anybody know if this is against gaming law?

I've seen this many times, as long as the ball didn't
drop, they can do whatever they like.

I was told a boss is not allowed to stop ball. Otherwise he could just stand there and watch where it was gonna drop and pick it up if the house was gonna take a hit. Gaming Control Board has been looking into it. Day Shift at the Tuscany is insanity.

I'm pretty sure picking up the ball once it is in motion is prohibited, unless there was a good reason to do it:
Quote: Nevada's Regulation 5


Conducting, carrying on, operating or dealing any cheating or thieving game or device on the premises, either knowingly or unknowingly, which may have in any manner been marked, tampered with or otherwise placed in a condition, or operated in a manner, which tends to deceive the public or which might make the game more liable to win or lose, or which tends to alter the normal random selection of criteria which determine the results of the game.



It would be odd if it was done for no apparent reason. It would be like a Blackjack dealer being ordered to sweep up the cards after the first round has been dealt. However, it could also have been done in response to a violation of established protocol for game protection. Like a "no roll" call at the Craps table.

If I was the conspiratorial type, I might think it was done to move a gaffed ball into or out of the game...

I've never been there, but I love harassing pit crews like this. Maybe I will go soon.

He probably saw an abnormal amount of reds/blacks/numbers in a row, and like many pin headed table games supervisors, thought he would stop it from happening anymore. Same as the ones that think a dealer can change the way the cards are dealt by cutting the deck differently or shuffling "better".

Oh yeah. Dealers are deemed "lucky" or "unlucky." That's why they don't run a rubberband or string. Each dealer is given his own table. This way they can "blame" the dealer for losing. Dealers are actually told they have "unlucky" shuffles. Please Gaming Control Board come in and close this pit down. It's a criminal operation.

I've never seen anyone actually playing table games at Tuscany. That seems like a waste of time. While gaming control is there they can remove the King D-bag bartender who constantly asks my gf for her number. Get it? GAMEing control.
