The bill breaker should give bills as well. Put in a $20, get four fives. Then you can get $5 worth of quarters. I doubt many people are putting in a $20, playing two or three dollars worth of games, and leaving with $17 in quarters.
Over the years, the POH has been very good at getting publicity and I think this is just another example.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

They said they've been hoarding quarters for years, but now they're getting worried. How big is their stash of coins? If each machine can handle $250 of coins times 125 machines, that's over $30K of coins. No bank is gonna make a dent in replacing that these days.

Well I did my part last week.

I took ~ $ 90 worth of coins to a Coinstar and got the voucher for Lowes Hardware store (no vig / commission for that). And the Lowes is right next door to the grocery store that had the coinstar. Easy peasy.

But clearly with my ~ $ 90 in coin BACK in circulation, no reason for VEGAS not to resume dispensing out the coins again, right ?

I saw this in a few spots at Wind Creek (formerly Sands) in Bethlehem PA yesterday.

While they were in several locations, none were next to a redemption machine.

Full disclosure: I didn稚 check the machine to see if there痴 any notification about the change.
I invented a few casino games. Info: http://www.DaveMillerGaming.com/ 覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧 Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

We were at Wind Creek in Bethlehem PA this weekend. On the way out they have a donation slot where patrons can drop their unused vouchers. All proceeds go to the Lehigh Valley VIA.

This is similar to what Borgata AC is doing. At the redemption kiosks they have an option to donate change to the Atlantic County food bank.

Edit: LOL, jumped right to the end, didn稚 see post above.

Not sure if it was mentioned already but there are casinos currently offering a premium if you bring in change. Not saying that confirms there is a shortage. Also most if not all the casinos I visit have a donation option on their atms for the remaining change on your tito to some random charities.

I was in the middle of mentioning that (I't was more prevalent soon after the covid outbreak). Some guys did well. Then I decided not to mention it as I didn't want to mess up anyone's current gig. Good Job Viper, u just let the cat out of the bag. 🙆‍♂️ 😀

The Southpoint, and otherwise player friendly casino, doesn't even give you a ticket back. It just rounds down to the nearest dollar.

Really? Can anyone else confirm this? I normally speak very highly of the South Point, but they would lose some of my respect if they were doing this.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
