It annoys me to no end when I go to the cage with say a relatively small voucher or maybe some table chips, say maybe $800 or so, and the cashier will say something like, "Ooh, great night, congratulations, blah blah blah." Well for one thing, how does he or she know I didn't buy in for $20,000, blew my brains out, and this measly $800 is all I have left? In that case I really want to hear their bullshit. Just pay me and STFU.

So what is actually the motive here? It happens so frequently. I used to know a sleezeball at the off-track betting joint who would say "ooh" if you were cashing out for $10, like that's the big win of the century. I knew what he was doing, he was looking for a toke, and he had no shame, no shame at all.

So, that was one example. But is that the agenda with ALL of these different cashiers who do this so often? Are they looking for a toke? Who the F asked them to comment on my cashout? Do they say the same thing to everyone?

I'm usually a very pleasant person, believe it or not. If they are cordial, and then ask if I want large bills, I politely say "yes, please", and "thank you, have a nice evening". But when they START the conversation with, "Ooo, your lucky night, congrats", I wanna say, just give me the fkg money. They don't know what I bought in for. Half the time I DID blow my brains out. Congrats.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

Maybe I'm just naive but I feel it's innocent. Most of the time they ask what machine I've played which makes me think they're gamblers too. I always patronize them with "yeah its nice to win once in a while." My goal is to not be noticed or remembered. The only time it got awkward was I was paid a 10k check for a jackpot and took it to a credit union in the hood. The cashier made a big deal about it "daaaayuuuummm" and showed all her cashier buddies.

I feel the cashiers are trying to be nice when they innocently say stuff like,"Ooh, big congrats, you are so lucky, " not knowing how much you actually LOST. They are trying to be nice in the wrong way. In my job, my managers gave this piece of helpful advice. "No personal chatter with customers unless they do the personal chatter first." That should be the casino cashier's motto too.

A couple things are going on there.

Casinos will often want to push "customer satisfaction," especially if it costs them nothing; having employees chit-chat helps promote that.

Also, the cashier could be trying to induce you to give her / him a tip.

When you cash out for more than the average person and you haven't been up to the window for 3 credit card advances that night, they probably assume you won. Most of them are just happy for you that you're leaving with something.

I get that all the time too. I just say, "Ahhh, even for the day and leaving" even if I'm cashing in $3000 in tickets and way up.

We are complete opposite people. I do not miss an opportunity with a cashier or dealer to slip in a dad-joke about how my $10 is "almost a million". Just like you, they usually roll their eyes in pure hate.

Not sure what would happen if we were in a room together.

Might want to get a 2nd opinion on that one.
