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.

You know, I learn something about myself and others every day. For example, if this were someone other than MDawg at the Resorts World opening, and he reported conjecturally about chipped chips (I'll take credit for that phrase) or chipped cheques (ditto), I would simply say, "You're probably wrong about this or that" and think nothing of it. And I'd enjoy the trip report while not thinking I insulted the person. But because it's a lesson from MDawg, it becomes something else.

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.

I assume the ones withdrawing from debit cards at the cage are somehow getting even more than the machines will allow. Which, I understand that those machines in the casino will override your bank's limits, but charge a small amount in repeated little fees to get money out.

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.

As far as this "argument" over the way the Baccarat tables work, it just comes down to misreading and maybe one person maybe two with silly agendas that have nothing to do with the matter being discussed. I could add that wholesale ignorance is part of the problem too, because you read what one or two of the detractors have written and you wonder if they have ever played table games. They probably have, but so long ago that they forgot what it is like.

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.

Since casinos won't take money orders, have traveler's checks gone digital with a card yet?

I have never tried to give a money order to a casino, but if they will not accept it, it would be a COMPLIANCE issue that gets back to what I explained about how casinos must be anti-money laundering. For example, they will not accept a cashier's check unless the remitter is the player himself or a solely owned entity that they have previously verified as being owned solely by the player. Same with bank wires - the sender must be the player.

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.

I hope they give me a year-end spreadsheet of all 39,000 bets I made so it will all be one session for tax purposes.
