Sorry wasn't sure where this question should go. Move if it is more appropriate someplace else. Looking at my end of year report from the casino (coin in / coin out) just as a general reference I feel like it is grossly inaccurate. So it got me wondering if there are certain things that could make these reports easily manipulatable. (Note. I'm not asking about the veracity of these reports, but about the mechanics behind them). For example, say I sit down at a machine and either forget to put in my card or my card isn't working. I plug 2,000$ into the machine and then realize my card isn't in. I put in my card (and don't put in any additional money), hit a bonus and pull off $1,100. As far as the report is concerned, is this -$900 (2,000 coin in / 1,100 coin out) or is it +$1,100 ($0 coin in / $1,100 coin out). Or is it some kind of hybrid. Basically, whenever you put money in a machine without a card in it, is it "lost" as far as the coin in / coin out calculation is concerned? As a follow-up, once you use your card with a ticket, is the ticket somehow tied to your card? So if I pull off a TITO and then use the TITO at another machine without the card, would this be tracked, or does my card need to be in in order for it to count with the TITO? Along those lines, if I always remove my card right before "cashing out", would that "coin out" never be realized on a report? Just thinking through some things and trying to get a better grasp of how these reports work.
