    Sometimes I'll tell them they have it a little low. But most of the ones who I ask will say the average bet and then "sound about right?" Which opens it up for some corrections if they've shorted you.

    that's only because they have to account for every dollar of chips in the rack.

    they count the racks every so often and every ticket has a win/loss on it.

    at the higher levels it's important it's correct for you for loss rebates and such, but the pit boss doesn't care about that.

    he just cares that his numbers all add up at the end of the day.

    if $30k in chips left the rack during his shift, he better have $30k in wins in his rating slips.

    this is also why you can get screwed up ratings because if their numbers are off, they will throw some money on a player just to make the numbers match.

    usually I'll say something like, "what do you think about $200, did you see all those (insert big bet amount) bets I had?"

    sometimes they'll be tight and say something like, but you were at $100 a lot of the time. so then I'll say, how about $175? usually that works.

    arguing time played is really only feasible in bacc because they give you 1 hour per shoe.

    in other games they write down when you sat down and when you left and that's that.

    in bacc, sometimes I'll have sat down into half a shoe and then left at half another shoe and I'll try to get them to extend those to full shoes.

    Regarding Taekkun's comments about ratholing. What about RFID chips? Even if someome ratholes them, they get accounted for at cash-in no?

    I don't think any casinos are that sophisticated yet.

    I think they only use RFID to verify authenticity, not track locations, etc.

    I noticed during my last trip when I went to the cage with purple and yellow at Palazzo they asked which game and table I won at.

    I'd never had them ask that before.

    that's just so they can verify your play that you actually won the money and didn't steal the chips from somebody else, etc.

    but I've never really had anyone do that for anything less than 5k chips or if you have a huge stack of yellow or something.
