Tried to use an ATM at Horseshoe the other day. They all had withdraw limits of $240. WTF. I've never seen such a low limit before. Why would a casino want you to take out less money. Maybe for the ATM fee's? So you hit the machine more than once? Weird.

For the record I pretty much never use casino atm's. I just bring my bankroll with me. But I was stopping in just to redeem some matchplay, and didn't have much cash on me. I'm really not going to be using their atm now.

Just wanted to let you guys know. Get your cash BEFORE you go down there.

ATMs at most non-banking locations are rental agreements, just like Guy Fiere's, and as long they pay their rent, the casino doesn't really care how they go about making money.

Well I found out today that the reason they limit withdraws to $240 is the state of MD in their infinite wisdom limits casino ATM transactions to $250. So since the machines only dispense $20. The limit is effectively $240. These are the same chuckleheads that won't let the casino give away free drinks. Good thing the politicians are there to protect us. I sleep better at night.

Typical Maryland, probably the same people that taxed rain.

I'm in Baltimore for a few days so I popped into Horseshoe to check it out around 2:30 PM on Friday. The open layout makes the casino look big because it's like a warehouse full of gaming machines & tables on both the main floor and lower floor.

6 of the 12 craps tables were open; 1 had $15 minimum, 5 had $25 minimum. All have $5,000 max and 100x odds, $10,000 max. The field pays double for both 2 & 12 instead of triple for one or the other.

It looked like all slot machines with progressive jackpots had a sticker posted on them saying the progressive jackpot was going away in 30 days, dated 8-1-2015.

There were a few guys at the entrance of the parking deck, standing next to a sign saying something like "Horseshoe hurts their workers". They were handing out flyers that claim Horseshoe pays maintenance workers $9 an hour which requires the workers to get tax-funded public assistance. People are urged to go to a casino that pays fair wages.

there's a e-craps machine on the 2nd fl by the poker room that pays triple for the 12. I think it's 3/4/5x odds.

as for the maintenance workers, they don't have to work there. they don't like their wages, go find work somewhere else.
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

I was there around the same time but didn't see any protesters but it wouldn't surprise me. I'm not sure about maintenance workers. Dealers don't even get minimum wage, I think maybe $2 less. One dual rate told me he gets $27 an hour when managing. I know that they give decent benefits. I talked to one dealer and I said that I saw him at another casino and he said they have no problem with them working at both and that he drives 40 miles there because he gets 40 hours a week and health insurance. Not to get into tipping discussion but I do think it's rediculous that the casino offers a game with a built in house edge and then expects you to take care of paying their dealer. Obviously I still tip though.
