    Embarrassing situation in Macau

    I was told that in at least one casino in Macau they are so afraid of having a losing day now that if a customer wins US$7000 or more, table gaming staff has to fill in a special form explaining why the customer won (so much). Did he or she play a certain system? On baccarat maybe the Chinese graph? And if so, which one? Did the player get any information from another customer while playing? Does he count cards? Etc.


    One member of staff asked me why I always win?!?!?! Of course, this is not true, so please check my results. Anyhow if I could at least explain why I sometimes win, as writing down “the player got lucky” is just not an option!


    That (previously) winnings of US$125k or more get scrutinised/reviewed, I can understand, but only US$7000 and on top of that some form of explanation required? And this in Macau?!


    How is this in Vegas?

    Casino management stupidity does not stop at any border.

    I can't imagine this at any of the larger Macau casinos. could you be specific about which casino? Do you have a direct evidence or is this second hand?

    Strip casinos have maximum bets of $50,000 to $100,000 at hundreds of tables on the main floor. That's US dollars.

    Its no different in the USA. You win a few thousand, pit calls surveillance, and you keep winning, surveillance calls their supervisor, the whole session has been recorded and I am sure It’s reviewed someplace. Course, if the pit does not call surveillance as might be required, they face consequences.
