    How many people keep a few vouchers from the casinos they play at while in Vegas? If it's 5 cents 80 cents 3 cents etc ....I wonder how much the casinos make just from this. I usually leave my voucher on the machine hoping the next person will use it. We counted up what we took with us the last time, and between us we left with 13 dollars from random places. I can't imagine what casinos make from this alone.

    I've never left a cent behind. There is always a voucher redemption machine on my way out or to the room. I sometimes leave a ton of change in the room for the housekeeper in addition to my daily tip. Be careful about leaving them in the machine. I've heard of people getting in trouble for using left over credits. I would suggest if you don't want those few cents hand the tito to someone who sitting close by. That way the eye can see you do it.
     
    Hoping they don’t check for gambling fever....have that in spades!

    I'm occasionally walking away with them.

    For LV, I've never had any trouble cashing in a recently expired one.

    Locally is more of an issue and I had to sign a "dispute form" once to get one paid.

    I've been more careful lately.

    The whole thing of expired vouchers has to be a huge profit center for casinos!

    If someone is playing next to me, I'll hand them the voucher for a few cents.

    After a rather rough night and I have a voucher for well under a dollar left - I find some person playing penny machines and give it them with a "Good luck - I'm Done" comment. I just laky it on their machine vs actually giving it to them.

    I always save all my change at home. I don't get much anymore because I use credit cards for everything. But anyway, I have a large plastic beer bottle at home that I put all my change in (except penny's) and when its full it has a little over $300 in it which I can use for my vacation or buy myself something. So when I'm in Vegas I cash out every penny and take it home with me and add it to my beer bottle! On a typical Vegas trip I'll bring home $20 - $25 in change.

    There have been a few times where there were leftover credits in a machine and I did not notice them until after inserting my money and starting to play. Never caught any grief over it.

    When I do cash out a TITO in the cash machine, I always leave the pennies.. maybe the nickels. I hate carrying them around. My right pocket has my phone and maybe some change. My left pocket has bills and credit cards. Back right pocket has room key. Always.

    I usually cash mine to the last penny.... or leave the TITO as part of the housekeeping tip at the end of my stay.

    I always cash them out. UNLESS, I find them in my purse later as I 'stashed' it away in a drunken moment...lol. We save the change and bring it home for 'seed money' for the next trip.

    I cash in every single one. Bills go on the wallet, coins into a bag to put in my coin bank (a gallon water jug) until my next trip.

    I see a fair amount of small titos around, especially my last trip in February downtown. I never take them. The most I've done is move them to another machine if they are sitting on one I want to play.

    I've never given "forgotten" chips away but I will give away a TITO.
    I've kept some as souvenirs.
    I've passed along TITO's to others....... players, bartenders, wait staff or housekeeping.

    One time I forgot to cash in 2 TITOs of $17 & $4.
    I mailed them to another VMBer along with 2 leftover LVA/2 ACG & Restaurant.com gift certificates because I knew I wasn't going to be able to go back in less than 6 months.
    It's all positive energy...and why wouldn't I pass it along?

    If I see credits left on a machine I will not play that machine.
    If I see a TITO laying on a machine I will leave it where it is ...I might play that machine, but I will leave the TITO alone.
    I feel like it's bad luck to play on anyone else's TITO if it's just left there. Someone might have accidentally left it behind.
    But....If a TITO is handed directly to me, then I will accept the gesture graciously.
