The funniest part is so few people know the law. You could literally be arrested for picking up a $5 chip off the carpet. It's insane and completely lacking of common sense.


one time I lost my phone at the casino and I thought I might have dropped it under the craps table somehow, it wasn't under there but I did find a 5 dollar chip and I even asked the dealers if I could keep it and they were like "ah hell sure why not?"

haha. casino dealers are not very well regarded for giving advice on the games they deal, much less solid legal advice.

well I never got in any trouble so I guess missouri doesn't have that rule or if they do it's only for high amounts, that or security wasn't paying attention or decided it wasn't work the paper work to mess with me over a 5 dollar chip I found way under the craps table.

Missouri does have that same law, but I doubt many of the employees knew about it or even cared.

If you had been a minority, though, things might have gone differently.
