    No coins distributed by the slot machines. Just paper tickets that have to be redeemed at the cashier's window.
    .
    How many of those end up in the trash? Lots and lots. Nobody bothers with any ticket valued at less than a dollar. Too much hassle to stand in line for, I'd guess.
    .
    Oh, but when you're talking about ten to fifteen thousand such tickets, every day, that's quite a lot of money under the table that the casino takes in. The slot machines still register the tickets as payouts. So, when the tickets are not redeemed, the money doesn't officially exist on the company balance sheets.

    If you want to pick THAT type out of a crowd, just look for the festering scabs on their elbows.

    I hate that they dispense tickets now. Not that slots were all that appealing to me in the first place but one of the draws was the sound of the coins coming out.

    They even went so far as to provide electronic sound effects or happy music when the tickets are being printed.

    I know but it's not the same

    yeah that last part's not true. any payout ticket is valid for 12 months from the payout date. those unclaimed tickets are recorded in net wagering activity along with all the other payouts. but those tickets are not considered an expense until validated and paid. net terminal income shows the discrepancy, and the difference is carried for 12 months. if at the end of the 12 month period, those funds have not been claimed, the tickets are voided and added back to the books.

    i mean, really? here's the thing. i manage VGTs in my bar, as a state-licensed terminal operator. you think you're running some big, squeaky-clean scam on the casino? you're not. sure, you can spend an extra hour or two every day, thumbing through the trash for $.02 here and $.13 there, and it might add up over time. only then, you'll have to explain to the pit boss why you're spending 5 minutes at the payout kiosk every day, and you'll probably get fired after about ... 2 days of this. OR, you could use that time to do better at your job, get noticed, and maybe get a promotion to earn your bread the honest way.

    quit peddling your half-baked schemes as insight.

    They should just do away with cash and voucher payouts. Pretty much every casino nowadays makes you get their own special point card to keep track of you, and you have to insert it into the machine before it'll let you play. It'd be so much easier if those things could just keep track of your winnings and let you cash them out as one single transaction. I always hate having to keep track of like, 20 separate tickets and then force them on some poor employee or feed them individually into one of those self-checkout machines some places have.

    People have to take those vouchers to the cashier window in your town? Huh. In Vegas, you just take vouchers to one of the many self-service voucher payout machines inside casinos. Much shorter lines that way, if there’s a line at all.

    Or if you’re like me, you just run that -$1 voucher back into a machine and spend it. Sometimes you end up turning that tiny voucher balance into $100+. It happens.

    You can take it to the self-service kiosk or to the employee cash out window or play it in another machine. It's been a long time since I've gone gambling but at least half the time I go to any casino a bunch of the machines are out of order so you're stuck with a line anyway.

    What would you rather have? A tiny ticket you can tuck away in your pocket without anyone noticing, or a large and heavy jug of coins you have to carry around with everyone watching and when you exchange that for fat wads, have the potential to get mugged in the parking lot?
