    I have never played baccarat before, but have always enjoyed watching and know the game enough to play...my question is - for the casinos that track your commission as you play, and allow you to pay as you go or at the end...what happens if you lose all of your money and have none to pay the commission?:cry:

    Haha, this happened to me before many years ago. My commission was like $100. I told them I was going to get more money and will return. I just left.

    I've seen the pit bosses chase some people down to make them pay their commission.

    Well, if you're playing with a player's card, then they know who you are and will note your account. Then you won't be able to play at the casino until you settle up

    I had that happen to me a long time ago. I was playing for a while and then went all in and lost and when I got up the dealer said I owe about $900. in commision. I told them I'm out. They said they can not comp commission and the Pit Boss call my Host and they try to see what they can do.

    I was told to go to the cage and they had a Comp Check for me to sign and they would give me $950 dollars in cash. They had to take it off my player's card Points and comps but that was the only way they could give me money at the cage and then I can bring it to the table to pay the commission.


    The Gaming Board will not allow a casino to comp commission.

    Let me say it was not that quick I had to just sit there and wait as they called and try to figure out what to do. Like I said this was back in the 90's so it was a long time ago since then I have always had enough to cover the commission.


    That is why now I either pay if it gets too high or I set it aside in case I lose all my money.



    I asked what they would do now and Like UKFanatic said they will note your account and ask you to pay next time or they will not let you play
