yeah, i've seen people withdraw from their debit card at the cage. (i was at the next cashier over.)
but there's an ATM at the end of the cage. (and multiple places in the casino.)
why not withdraw $ from the ATM with your debit card so people in line can cash out faster?
Most accounts have a withdrawl limit from the machine, maybe they can withdraw more from the cage. My card is limited to $3000 a day from the machine.
So we are supposed to have a buggered system that supposedly tracks people individually at the tables and doesn't allow chip swaps or loans (how likely is that?) while at the table because the chips are monogrammed to individual players at the tables. But then the monogramming is turned off once they leave the tables. You know, the simple way to circumvent that is plan beforehand and then leave the table simultaneously for the bathroom. But I digress.
I guess it's possible, or some kind of idealized goal. But only if the Canadiens are at your table. Sorry, that was snarky. LOL.
I defer to Axelwolf and Alan Mendelson on this chip tracking. Gentlemen, I see what MDawg described as quite unwieldy and practicably unnecessary. A nightmare on holidays, for example. But I could be dead wrong.
I do remember, about five years ago, my girlfriend poking hellacious fun at one of my blackjack/crap playing friends who thought he had pocketed various hundred-dollar cheques to create the illusion of loss. He'd been playing with chipped cheques and not known it, so after the session my girlfriend pointed that out. Turns out his pit boss padded his comps anyway. My girlfriend was on his case regarding his gaffe for awhile.
I defer to Axelwolf and others who deal with chipped cheques regularly.
On the other hand, you're inclined to disregard the realtime explanation of casino floor personnel, who are right there in the pit, viewing the screen and using the software, in favor of a measured communication from the casino's PR Department.
It fits the data best given MDawgís posts. He posted evidence that he didnít think the tracking was working. Turns out the VP of operations said that feature wasnít turned on.
Argument for argument's sake is not edifying, especially when there's nothing to argue about because whatever was originally posted doesn't even contradict what was introduced later.

I'm not so sure it's that simple.
The tracking system could pick up the chip IDs at the table, or at any table, if the players return to play.
The VP also mentioned verification at cashier during redemptions, so the chips are apparently being scanned at the cage.

According to what the reporter posted earlier, you are incorrect...that's not what the PR rep wrote.
