Watch Those Dealers!
« on: October 21, 2017, 01:55:52 PM »
Just a tip from my experience yesterday at the casino.  Guy walks up at lays down $2000 and ask for nickel chips.  After about 2 spins of playing, I noticed the dealer had gave him only half of what he was supposed to have.  I had to tell the guy twice before he realized that he was shorted $1000.  Not only that, the dealer raked off his winnings shortly after that, as if he lost. 

Pay attenton to these dealers!  Many are inexperienced and often pay out the wrong amounts.  After seeing this, I immediately went back to my comfort zone and started playing on the touchscreens

I can't say for sure if it was deliberate.  The guy had a few drinks in him, so they could've been taking advantage.  But I think it was just a mistake on the dealers

 How many of these " mistakes " did you observe? Was there any in players favor?

Are casinos like banks where they can take back the mistakes a dealer made?  Like you know, if the ATM spits out $1000 when you only withdrew $10; the bank will legally demand the money back.

 Do not know about around the world... Here in UK,  if pit boss see a mistake done by dealer,  it will be corrected.
    Normally,  they have cctv... so any disputes can be resolved with either pit boss or floor manager. They are after " hostpitality" after all...
  If it doesn't help, there is gaming comision. ...

I didn't play the live table long.  Maybe 2 hours.  Not sure how often this happens, though I have seen it before.  If a mistake is made, the pit boss has to be called over when the correction is made
