I’ve been playing this game regularly for a couple months now and have seen it all…..well thought I did til yesterday. The dealer is usually quite good and hardly makes errors but this time I caught one and stopped him. I’m at 1st base and dealt a hard 17 against his 3. The table is full and is played out and the dealer has 3-10 and draws a 4. Payout starts from 3rd base to me and he pays me! Just as he is about to gather the cards I stopped him. He saw the error and called his pit boss and the payout was taken back. I’m not one to try to capitalize on a dealer error, especially when its only $10. I feel I will just get screwed later even worse. What goes around comes around, eventually.

So my question would be if I took the payout and said nothing, can the casino camera show the pit boss the error and force me to return the $10 later on? Anyone ever have this?

Well you are right. But that’s all psychological. When someone cheats you for your money, you tend to think this kind of things. Some people have ethics while others don’t. Its pretty complex issue and lets leave it aside.

You might, and you might not. The cameras may not have a good aperture and not see the error he made. If it’s only ten dollars and it didn’t put a huge dent in your wallet, I’d tell you just to forget about it. Sure, try to get it back, but still, realize it’s only ten dollars and that sometimes things happen.

I’d complain a bit, but if there’s nothing you can do about it, might as well drop it. At least it’s only $10. It could have been worse.

That’s a great story. I don’t think this would be happening many times. Generally gamblers are more or less opportunists (including me). So maybe I would not do what you did.

Well I don’t agree with that regi21. Maybe gamblers are more or less opportunists but they definitely aren’t thieves. Why would someone do it for a paltry sum of money? Anyhow I would never indulge into something like this.

I completely agree with live4bj. I would never cheat anyone for money or anything (except beautiful girlfriends) wink)

Seriously OP has done a great job and all of us should not only cheer him for it but also we should follow his footsteps!

Well it pays to be honest and its pays more often to be on safe side. You did the right thing. If they would’ve caught you later on you might have fallen in much deeper trouble.

If it’s only 10 dollars, I would tell them about, but don’t hound them for that 10. If you can get proof, you can sue I think, so that’s all good. Now, if it was 100+ dollars, I would openly admit that you should raise a helluva storm at the people until you got your money.

I think that gambling doesn’t make you a thief. So don’t become dishonest while gambling. I would never take money the wrong way! Gambling is take too seriously which I think is wrong!
