    I was just browsing around on vegas.com and saw something where they stated your payout on any winning bet is limited to the table max, even if you should be paid out more. I'm practically 100% sure this is wrong, it makes no sense. Otherwise a guy who bet table max at BJ and got dealt a BJ would only get even money. It would mean you couldn't bet table max on anything that paid more than even money. Its not something I'm at risk of having to deal with but now I'm just curious.

    The exact text is this:

    The table max is always the most you can bet. Unless you ask to have it raised. Your payout if won would always be the normal payout, even if it goes above the table max.

    Why would casinos want to cheat you out of your hard earned money?

    I could swear I have sometimes seen small, separate signs that indicate a max payout on certain bets (usually side bets). Those signs are separate form the max bet sign, which is also at those tables. unfortumately, I am racking my brains trying to remember which bets I have seen with that sign, but I cannot recall. :confused2:

    Pai Gow tables sometimes have a max payout if you hit the 7 card straight flush on the bonus bet. At the local place here in washington it's 25k.

    Some of the games have a max payout limit for the table. I know Let it ride has this. Usually its for games that have a chance of a high multiplier for a good hand.
    For instance say you are playing let it ride and the payout limit for the table is $50,000 and you hit a royal flush which the payout is 1000:1.
    Say you were playing $10 a spot x 3 spots. Then you would hit 3X$10,000 = $30,000

    But if you were playing $20 a spot x 3 spots. You technically would win 3 x $20,000 = $60,000 but since the table max is $50,000 thats all you would get, not 60k.

    or if you played $50 a spot x 3 spots. You technically should win 3 x $50,000 = $150,000 but nope you dont get 150k..... you get the table max of $50k

    Some casinos do limit their maximum payout, like $50,000 maximum payout on Let It Ride Poker. I remember some online site railing against Casino Windsor for having $15 minimum bets at Let It Ride but limiting maximum payouts to $50,000. That made $16 the maximum bet you should make to receive a full payout.

    But maximum bet and maximum payout are two different things. The article on vegas.com doesn't make the distinction very clear, but appears to be referring to maximum payouts in his caribbean stud example.

    Yeah exactly. I've also seen the max payout listed on some games, but the way that article is written it implies that max bet refers to the same thing. I know its wrong, it wouldn't make any sense. Just wanted to be absolutely certain in case of that highly improbably chance I'm having the streak of a lifetime and press my bets all the way to table max LOL.

    As far as craps go, I think they have a maximum payout on some of the bets like the horn or hardways. So the maximum bet is something less than the maximum table bet posted, but they will not book a bet higher than they will payout so you will be covered if you decide to bet a grand on the hard six. Good luck.
