My brother is currently staying at New York New York Casino and reported that the exciting news there was that the casino was robbed! I looked for a headline and saw that the casino cage was robbed! I was excited to read about an Ocean's 11-type caper heist, but it was merely a dude with possibly a handgun. Unsophisticated. Unimaginative. Not movie-worthy.

I visited a small casino outside of Denver up in the Mountains
Its so old, cashier cage was no cage at all, just a short counter with really no security except a camera
I joked with the cashier how easy it would be to rob
She smiled and pointed to the occupied police car across the street. She said it sits there 24/7 and there is just 1 road off the mountain

I've been to Cripple Creek a couple of times quite a number of years ago. If I recall correctly, BACK THEN, the Blackjack was limited to $ 5 per hand. But like I say, it was a number of years ago, so don't quote me on that. #Fakenews

Is the crippled creek the one where there are like donkeys and mules roaming around nearby? That's the one I imagined when terapined said he visited one in Colorado (if that's the one I'm thinking of). It's the first one on the way into "town". IIRC, it was $5 min and $100 max or maybe $200 max (although doesn't Colorado have a $100 max bet? Or maybe that's Minnesota?).


Edit: Seems like I've been to several casinos where there is no "cage" at the cashier. It's all open-like.

There used to be $5 max bets in Colorado but it changed to $100 in 2009.

It was the Golden Gulch Casino in Black Hawk. Its small, real small. New player sign up was 10 bucks in free play. I signed up and was amazed they gave me a 10 dollar bill. Could have walked out up 10 dollars. Thought about it but naw, i gave the 10 back by playing it out on some machine.

The lowered security wired-cage area is reassuring. The one road may be an effective deterrent but its no substitute for an alert security staff. I've seen cage areas with absurdly low chip levels but its a comfort to have things handled well.

No one wants gunplay in the casino. that is why security procedures are so strict.

That cashiers counter at the Golden Gulch was not buried in the back of the casino but instead right by the glass doors exit.
That's why the cashier could easily point out the police car
I really did not notice chips but saw lots cash stacks at the back of the room in plain view.
I was amazed, just a short counter, lots of cash visible and right by the door.
