If i sat down to play a penny slot machine.....(which i have not, because i have never been in a casino) don't you know, or shouldn't you know what the

top prize for that machine will pay out.....before you pull the trigger.?   When i scratch off a ticket and it tells me the top prize is a million dollars, and i

scratch off and see i have won 28 million, yes i would be happy, but i would also think this is a typo.......a error.........but i would want to be rewarded,

because it was not my fault........i think she knows it was an error, and she knows they owe her something.  good luck lady and get you a real good

attorney, so he can get you............he will be the one who won......

 

I have really enjoyed eating my girl scout cookies and reading ......this thread.......

    In this case she never as you put it "pulled the trigger".  She hadn't even put any money into the machine.  All she did was insert her player card into the machine and the player card malfunctioned.  How could she have won anything.  These cards are similar to the ones we use at a grocery store and we get points or gas points on our purchases.  They owe her nothing.

      "Hint: It's not what he thought."

      I'm not the smartest guy in the room either, but smart enough to not to comment on what you were saying. However what I did comment on proved to be true in later posts.

      Just wondering, does Don Catlin use casino lingo like "has you by the cajones you want him to let go" in his gaming articles?

      I'm annoyingly between you and CT in this thread, mainly because I'm not as confident as you in the security of other communication mediums available. And with the delete key available to certain people, it's difficult to say anything which doesn't support the bottom line of the enterprise.  As for Don Catlin, I've not seen him use such language, but wouldn't be surprised if he did, off camera.  :-)

        Every job has its own 'lingo', more commonly called jargon.

        Catlin may not use it in his articles, but perhaps off camera, as you said.

        As for the lingo, the guys who ran the dealer's schools in Vegas definitley used it. In fact I cleaned it up a little by saying 'cajones'.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          From my experience as a player, it's the players and not the dealers that use the lingo and I suppose they are doing it to empress the dealers and the other players. It's certainly a colorful way to explain why a Don't shooter can take down their bet after the point is established. Saying "bet you didn't know a Don't shooter can take down their bets and continue rolling the dice" doesn't mean much if they can't give a logical reason why a Don't shooter would take down their bet after the point is established.

          Apparently I wasn't being PC enough or maybe even rude by saying I read similar gambling stories and antidotes in books. It should be common sense that writers like Vinson and Catlin tell similar stories and antidotes in their books and articles as an ex-dealer might tell on message boards, then again most people on message boards don't know the difference between a Don't bet and Field bet.

            "How could she have won anything."

            According to the article, she believed she won lots of money, but it's all based on a software glitch with the rewards card screen.

            "In the lower level state gaming office, she filed this complaint"

            Because somebody on the upper level said she had a good case for a lawsuit. I agree with you offering a steak dinner was is generous, but because they can't know what a jury will say, the casino may offer more.
