I had to pass through there today on my way to the Luxor so presented this yellowed ticket replete with pushpin holes. So, I approach the cage with the ticket and apologize for my tardiness cashing it, but request forgiveness of the expiration date and get my $10 anyway. The cashier said "no," and pointed to the 30-day expiration policy. So I asked to speak to a supervisor. He radioed one to come over, and one showed up in less than 30 seconds. I showed him the ticket and he gave me a gentle ribbing about it being four years old but approved it without argument.
So, due praise to the Excalibur for honoring the ticket. It also goes to show to not take "no" for an answer too easily.
Still, someone there knows what the term 'good will' means.
edit: Come to think of it somebody must have tried to cash an old ticket before. Maybe they do deserve a little praise.
Let's face it, you're famous. I wonder what would happen if a layperson tried to do this.
My web sites may be well known, but I'm seldom acknowledged in public by strangers. In public I'm just your average middle-aged white guy.
I had 4 $5 chips from Turning Stone, which I accidentally took home years back. When I finally went back they would not honor them. I asked to speak to a supervisor, who politely told me I had 4 souveniers. She said they honored them for 2 years after they changed chips, and I was around 8 years too late.....
Before asking a supervisor - Make a $25 bet on craps with a new chip on top of the 4 old chips. Play until you lose. When they take the chips and look at them, I can't imagine they'd try to grab $20 of your new chips, it's an honest mistake.
