    Losing 2 slot machines? So how does the gaming commission uncover something like that? Do they take an independent inventory of machines?

    Same thing about the BJ game. How does the gaming commission find out. Is that reported by a player, by the casino? I know giving the money back to the player is against the rules, but from a players point of view that was awesome by GN to reimburse the player.

    Do Indian casinos have gaming commissions to report to? Who is the watchdog who looks out for the player?

    So yes at least in Illinois and Indiana they must report the machines they have to the commission. At a local casino they just redid the carpeting. They needed to log the machines they turned off and moved to replace the carpeting. So if a casino loses two machines the gaming commission will know.

    What if the casino doesn't report them missing to avoid embarrassment and/or fines?

    well, I am not sure what type of machine they are, but it comes down to lost revenue to the state. By law, a percentage of the money made on each slot machine is paid to the state, and the gambling enforcement board is the entity that tracks that. If you ever gamble early in the morning and watch them do "the drop" where they collect the money from each machine there is a little coded ticket that is placed on each cash box that corresponds to a specific gaming machine. therefore each machine needs to be accounted for.

    Also, one of the interesting things about this as it relates to "progressive" jackpots. A casino must payout the progressive jackpot, they cannot just take the slot machine off line. A perfect example of this was the lion's share machine at MGM.

    Far as tribals go it all depends upon the state, some like Louisiana have state monitors on site actually others like here in Oklahoma it is basically the fox guarding the henhouse, hell they don't report squat here to the state and the oversight is by the different tribal commissions, we don't have minimum hold % on slots.
