At Suncoast I just cashed a ticket for $20.75 and the 75 cents came out as nickels.



I wonder if nickels was the only denomination coin in the redemption machine. If so, that would suggest the coin shortage continues today.

Almost impossible to have a shortage of coins. Very possible to have a problem with circulation. In the case of ticket redemption, it is mostly a matter of not wanting to spend the money keeping the entire floor stocked with them. Cheaper to keep only the cage stocked. Very tacky, especially when Bellagio doesn't give coins at the redemption machines, but Jerry's Nugget does.

It always gives me bad vibes when a billion dollar corporation ask customers to donate to charity. If it means that much to them, let the executives and share holders donate profits.

Last time I turned in my coins was when the casinos were closed in 2020. Rolled them and deposited about $200 at the bank. Think I have more than that now. I don't care about getting a premium for it, I just don't want to be charged a fee. Anyone know any places in Las Vegas where I can do that? Would even open an account at any bank that lets me deposit them.

Any Wells Fargo branch accepts rolled coins from depositors. They don't take them when you open an account but once you establish an account they take a couple hundred a day.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Prior to 1999, very few collectors collected US Quarters. Since then, each quarter released in a limited edition collector's item and many people are saving them under the impression they will be worth more in the future.
A few years ago, a Mint survey indicated over a third of all pennies are circulated less than three times before they end up in someone's drawer. The Presidential dollar coins are circulated even less. Many Americans aren't even aware we have a dollar coin that circulates.

Wells was my only bank in Vegas. In NYC, my bank had a Coinstar, free for depositors. Perhaps Coinstar has a list of banks on its website.
