Hopefully this will be of interest here. This is not in Las Vegas, but one of the companies involved has countless casinos in LV. (CET) To make a long story long ... I was cleaning out an older purse I seldom carry anymore and I found two cash-out tickets, one from the local Ameristar for $18 and change and one from the local Horseshoe for $13 and change. Both were several months old. I realized that both were expired, but I figured I had nothing to lose by trying to redeem them. First of all, neither one worked in a machine or cash-out machine. I first tried Ameristar. Went to the cage. I handed the ticket to the lady there, explained that it was expired, and asked if there was anything they can do. She took the ticket back to a guy standing by a desk, I guess the cage supervisor or something, and I heard him say "Yeah, pay it" without giving too much thought. Total transaction time, about one minute. Next the Horseshoe. I handed the ticket to the lady in the cage and explained that it was expired and I just found it and such and she kind of shook her head and said it was expired and there was nothing she could do. I figured that one round of push-back was worth a try so I asked nicely to speak to a supervisor or manager and she motioned for a nearby "suit" to come over. I proceeded to tell him the story of finding the ticket and that I knew it was expired and he stopped me right there and said "(kid) I'm gonna have you sign a dispute form, if that's OK." I asked what that was and he said it was what they use in all kinds of cases including this. I asked it if would affect my players club status and he said "Not unless you get too many of them." He filled out the form "Player disputes value of ticket $0.00 and requests $13.79" or something like that, took my ID and players card, had me sign the form, and they paid me. I hadn't cashed in an expired ticket for some time. The last I remember doing it was at the old Las Vegas Hilton, and it was one trip old. The guy at the cage did not even blink but scribbled something on it and paid it. That was several years ago. Ameristar was the easier of the two. No real questions. Just the approval of someone in charge. My guess is that it's CET (or local management) policy to initially say "tough bananas, SOL" but to pay expired tickets, with some formality, if the player pushes it. I ended up not being out the $30 some. Oh well ... Hope you enjoyed the story.
