    Last morning. Watching my friend play a slot. Put my $83 TITO under my players card on the slot next to him. Walked away without it. Went back 3 minutes later. Gone. Checked all the machines he played, nothing. Really bummed, this was going to last me the last couple hrs until my flight out. Asked a random employee if there was anything I could do. Suggested I check with security. Went to security, told me to come back later as it was too soon even if someone turned it in. Ok, went back an hr later. Different security guy said, no - you need lost and found. Ok, went to L&F. No sir you need to speak to a slot attendant. Now, all the employees were very nice, professional, polite and they all said an employee would turn it in but I could tell they didnt have much hope. I didn't either but you have to ask. I figured the odds were slightly better bc my players card was with the TITO. Anyway, L&F guy took me across the casino to the other side from where we were playing to find a slot attendant. Found one. She looked in her desk area. Nothing. She called her boss on the phone. Nothing. L&F guy left. Slot attendant said lets try the high limit slot area and the supervisor. Went over there, told them the story, my name and TITO amount. She went in the back room, came back with my TITO and players card.
