    Does anyone know if you hit a 1200+$ hit if theres tax withheld on these table games that play like slots (sort of)

    I think they might, but not positive on that either.

    That's a good question. I'd like to know as well. On table games no tax is withheld. Yet the only difference between these games is the absence of a human dealer. Craps is the same way.

    Just a guess, but I think the answer is no. The tax withholding requirements is triggered by the amount won, but also it has to be a game with certain odds (longer shots). There is no wager in roulette that has those odds

    If you hit 1200+ on electronic or bubble roulette, a w2g is generated.

    It's really annoying as the wheel will keep spinning while you wait for an attendant to pay you. We didn't know this until my friend had bet $600 on red and won and his terminal froze up. He was pissed.

    Is it on a single wager or all wagers? Like if you had $300 on Even and $300 on Red? And both wagers win.

    If any payout is over $1200, a w2g is generated. It doesn't matter how you slice it.

    Total noob question here, but do you have to get a w2g every time, or just for the whole session? What if you're placing repeated multiple-$100 wagers? You have to wait for an attendant each time it pays out?

    Each time the hit is over $1200. It's not even a $1200 win. If you bet $600 on red and it hits, the machine will lock up and you have to wait for an attendant.

    So I guess at that level, they'd really prefer that you were at the live table!

    Wouldn't it be easier just to enforce a maximum total bet limit?

    Laws don't necessarily sync up with common sense like this... plus the casino wants you to be able to bet into the higher ranges on such a -EV game im thinking.

    On the other hand, I often see banks of these empty... Whats to stop someone from just playing $500 on red on 2 machines to bet $1000?
    Also, does anyone know with certainty if you cash out over $1200 that there is no W2G? Just wins, correct? (Ex: I put in $500, win $500 then win $500 again on a second spin, and hit cashout for $1500 TITO)

    Are you saying if you bet high and win (and it's under $1200) one should cash out before betting high again? I think that's a good idea.

    I think its a good idea regardless, but what I'm trying to figure out is whether or not its NECESSARY. I'm thinking its actually not -- but want to confirm the behavior of these machines by someone with firsthand experience. As in, we all know it should be a $1200 win and multiple $500 wins (even 100 of them) should not have an impact, as in no W2G but who knows for sure??
