I'm not wrong.

You are going to suggest the cashier combines multiple tickets so that ten tickets under a dollar are cashed out for a few paper dollars and some loose change thereby eliminating some of the coinage.

But that's assuming people are waiting and saving up their coin receipts.

I'm talking about normal circumstances where everyone cashes whatever coin voucher they are left with after gambling.

If everyone went to the cashier with their single change voucher the casino would have to have the coins to pay out same as the redemption machines

People aren't idiots to wait minutes to break even. The line would be outrageous if people waited for the change from 1 ticket. I suppose if it got really bad, the cashiers could round every person's tickets to the nearest dollar.

Agreed.

But that was my original point.

The casino is using the fact people won't wait on the line to pocket the money themselves but they must actually have all that change at the cashier as they cannot be certain how many people will wait.

I truly hope if they did run out of change they would round up to the nearest dollar but my experience with casinos is they penny pinch. More likely they would give you another receipt for a cash credit upon your next visit lol

I had a casino that printed out a voucher for the remaining change and it literally said to come back on a later date in order to redeem the coins.

That's new York as well.

This was true in West Virginia when I worked at a grocery store, of course, that was over fifteen years ago.

The Federal coin shortage is back. My local bank would only give me $40 of quarters. I went two towns over and the branch there didn't have any quarters. They called two other branches and they were out of quarters. I was told there were no shipments of quarters to the banks this past week. I was asked to try the bank behind the bank I was in, but since I wasn't a customer at that bank, they said no way. I was also given a tip to go to a Federal credit union down the street, and they took pity on me and sold me $40 of quarters. I was told to check out a car wash outside of town, but they changed their dispenser from quarters or tokens to tokens only.

I bought a years worth of quarters at the start of this thread, and I was getting down to halfway empty, so I thought I'd top up some more.
Stores will be out of coins in 3..2..1...

I noticed a couple cars in my town that somebody spray painted the license plates with a silver spray paint. What would that be about?



The license plates were defective and peeling. We're getting newer license plates for the toll readers, but since the prisons and the mail and DMV's are backed up, I wasn't required to to get new plates at registration renewal time. I notice I get hit with a laser radar when I hit certain deactivated toll booths. There's signs everywhere saying your registration will be suspended if you aren't properly billed for the tolls. I'm not sure their computers are catching the EZ Pass so they catch the license plates too and work out the discrepancies days later sometimes. I see traffic slows down for these over the road toll structures, like people going 65 instead of 75.

Meanwhile, I told both my banks I have about $1,000 in loose change and would happily deposit it to my account if they counted it. Both said a firm "no."

However, the Red Rock said they would take a reasonable amount and pay me face value. I have yet to bother to take them up on it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Just bring them $100 a week and you'll be free of the extra size jug of coins by September. Wrap it yourself. Take the pennies to the 13% HA coin sorter.

Me and MaxPen had a bet regarding some of your change.

At risk of getting political, it's time for change!
