This was at O'Sheas so Harrah's might be lenient about it, or may have rules regarding poker.

I used to work in Primm when MGM still owned it and you could gamble at any MGM property including your own, but you could never gamble on a progressive. They didn't want their employees winning a big jackpot on their own property. I then went to work at the Luxor which was still owned by Mandalay and you could gamble on any property they owned with no restrictions. Did you know however when you work for a casino you cannot have any visible tattoo's or facial hair. Some would allow mustaches, but none would allow beards.

WE have similar rules regarding tatoos, but facial hair is allowed if not encouraged. If you do not have a beard of two week sgrowth, then you have to be cleans shaven.

Are you still working for the Luxor?

This begs one to ask.... "How does one start a beard then, if one does not already have one?"
Do you declare you are starting one, and you get a two week 'pass', or do you take a 2 week holiday and come back with your two week growth?

The two week holiday way. Even then they can tell you to shave if it looks unsightly. I for example can not shave for two weeks, and still not grom a decent beard.

I left there back in 2002. Loved it but got a better money offer.

Here's a question for the dealer and anyone interested in ethics: Should a player correct the dealer when the dealer has paid the player erroneously? During a recent game at the El Cortez, the dealer paid me for a blackjack, forgot to clear the cards, then paid me again for the blackjack when he paid the other bets on the table. I didn't speak up and neither did anyone else.

It bothered me a little afterward, but I had two thoughts that might have justified taking the money. 1) If he had simply asked if he had paid me, I would have said yes, but he did not (maybe to save face) 2) He's obligated to correct any mistakes, while as a player I am not.

Any thoughts?

I would guess most of the people here will say that you should correct them. Personally, if I can get away with it I will. This means, like when I'm playing craps, if I get slightly overpaid and I don't look at it oddly for a moment and just take it - I won't say anything. On the other hand, if I look at it for a moment... make a weird face... then take it I'll give it back/correct them.

If they overpay me, I take/keep it, then if they ask for some back I'll give it back (of course). In your case, that kind of a mistake is ridiculously obvious to anyone looking/watching the game and I wouldn't even think about it. In my opinion, it's their job to pay you correctly. If they pay you incorrectly, it's on them (on you if they underpay).

If a cashier makes an error such as forgetting to ring something up, I take it. If the cashier gives me too much change, I correct her - because she will be short at the end of the day.

A dealer that pays too much doesn't have a paper trail to show he paid too much. Oh, sure, surveilance may see it, but until surveilance comes and asks for it back, it's mine. And even then, I may ask to see the tape before I 'admit' that there was an error.

Of course, I'm never the beneficiary of such an error.

I was at a table where the dealer paid the person next to me $20 when it should have been a push. In a barely audible whisper, I said "Did he...?" and the player whispered his response "yeah" before I could finish. The storm troopers never showed up (at least not in the 1/2 hour I was still at the table).

Different tables have different circumstances. In craps, where there are frequent mispays, I always give the dealer the opportunity to get it right and correct if I am underpaid. Once the dice are in motion however, I pick up my winnings. For PaiGow, I always correct, right or wrong. For all other games, I will leave an overpay out on the table and give them the opportunity to correct themselves. For most dealers, I will ask something to the effect of "did you pay me right?". The only exceptions are surly and unfriendly dealers.

I don't say anything about others' bets unless it is an underpay. I figure that it is none of my business to get involved in other's ethics and morality at a casino.

If I find that the dealer is constantly missing pays, I get up and leave.
