The OP also has a very Nathan-ish writing style.



Yeah, I thought so too, so I looked at it earlier. Does not appear to be a sock of anyone.

this thread is music to my ears since it involves someone being band from a casino....perhaps this story was orchestrated by the originator.

Appear, being the key word. As we all know there are simple ways to get around all that. So simple, Even a hobo could do it.

The point at which you went wrong was when you saw that the money was sticking out of the machine and the woman who stepped in front of you obviously (to you) hadn't put in a ticket to redeem it.

Agree.

>>>>Thieves who grab coin buckets.
Do those exist anymore?

>>>>Thieves who reach into someone's money on the rail at a crowded craps table and steal chips.
Alas, I learned that the table does not have to be particularly crowded.

>>>>>>>>>This is a CONSTANT problem in all casinos.
Yes. It is the casino's desire that security be enforced quietly if possible. When I handed TITO tickets to a friend who had been losing heavily I did it well after the tickets had been generated and well away from the slot machine. I did it slowly and openly as well. Probably not necessary but a casino is not a place to fool around. I've only been frisked once by casino security.

It is almost certain that the reason surveillance even became involved was not because an eagle-eyed surveillance guy notice one innocuous incident on 1 out of 2500 cameras.

More likely the person who left the money came back and made a complaint to security which went back and reviewed the tapes.

Based on solely my own experience this is almost always how it goes down

True. I had something stolen from me and security/surveillance was happy to help and told me they don't want thieves around. I thought if I pressed charges, they would retaliate against me, but it didn't happen. Nothing ever came out of it, the older woman got away with stealing my belongings, never heard from the Sheriffs.

Later at the same casino, some punk took my anchor money out of a machine while I searched around. The punk gave up the machine, I tried having them go after him, they looked at the tapes, but said they didn't see him doing anything. The slot attendant later told me surveillance probably just looked at the wrong time. They can screw up, don't know if this time was just based on the token $2 value of my loss.

Surveillance cameras are monitored if focused on dealers or cashiers, otherwise the 'tapes' are reviewed only in response to complaints,
The personnel are often untrained and low-paid.

I am not Awesomesauce, I promise. 😇(That face is SUPPOSED to be an innocent Angel, but it comes off as just a smile since the wings are white and blends into the white background and the gold halo blends into the blond hair , 😉) I can see the resemblance because AS at first claimed it happened to her Friend, but then later broke down and admitted that it was her all along. I have done something similar.

To AS directly, I fully think that the Casino is right on this one. You admitted you SAW the money sticking out of the TITO machine(You knew it wasn't yours and knew that it wasn't the lady's money as it was already sticking out even before the lady even tried to use the TITO machine and still took it after the lady handed it to you. Now you would have POSSIBLY be given the benefit of the doubt by The Casino if you had been sitting at a slot machine and the lady handed it to you without you having no idea where she got it from. See, in that case, you could have assumed she was just being generous and nice(People have mentioned being up so incredibly much, they have given other players like $100 just because they had gotten like $5,000 on a a $50 bankroll and wanted to be nice)but the way it happened, you knew that it wasn't the lady's money to be giving away. A polite, "No thanks," or even the ,"No, I'm good," hand wave would have been ideal.

It recently occured to me that the other Lady could have actually been part of a sting by the Casino and that's why SHE wasn't the one who got into trouble, despite being the one taking the money out and handing it to Awesome Sauce. IIRC, someone claimed that someone told him that there was an abandoned purse full of money at a slot and he was welcome to take it. He said he declined, thinking it was a sting operation and had the feeling that if he had taken that money, he would have been the only one in trouble. So, the other lady could have been a plant(Not sure if this is the right word) for the Casino in a sting operation.
