At Harrah's Metropolis this past weekend, my wife and I were playing Blackjack when a woman hit one of the side bets for a grand total of $1000. They had to stop play for her to sign a few papers and then bring the W-2. But I didnt think W-2's were required on table games until it hits the $10K limit or something. My wife did note that the W-2 had all 0's on it. I told her it's probably because she will pay the taxes later instead of right away, but now I dont think that's right either. Why was this done? Could it be because it was a $5 minimum and it exceeds a certain percentage of the bet or something? Just a side note, the lady actually won the majority on one of the side bets, 'lucky ladies' or something that pays 125 to 1 I think. She had $5 down and got 2 queen of hearts, so that is max payout. The catch is, if the dealer also gets a Blackjack on the same hand, the total is bumped to a grand.
