Playing on the tables, you can get cash but they tell you up front that there will be a 3% charge. I've seen people charge anywhere from $20 to $500. I'm sure it has everything to do with your credit card limits. You can do the same on the machines but they have some kind of mechanism that monitors whether you play any or enough of that. Hubby has had his sail and sign card locked down on more than one occasion for putting money on the card and deciding to cash out for whatever reason. In other words, you cant use the machines to skirt the 3% charge.
