You may or may not have noticed how casinos, more often than not, pay you, as the player, out on any winnings you’ve collected in either banknotes of 20 dollars or 100 dollars. And no, as simple as the solution might be, it isn’t that they’ve run out on 50-dollar bills.
The real reason is, there’s a pretty good chance that the casino in question does not stock these bills at all! Why? Well, you see, it’s a pretty common occurrence for players to flat out refuse any payments in the form of $50 banknotes.
The same can’t be said for the other way around, as a casino will never refuse a 50-dollar bill as payment, even though it will never use it to pay out your winnings. So, don’t worry if all you happen to have at that particular moment is $50 banknotes.
No one is really sure why gamblers prefer to steer clear of this specific banknote, although there have been many speculations throughout the years, and we have no doubt there will be many more. We might never know the answer to this for sure, but whatever it may be, one thing remains certain: if the player happens to be of the superstitious sort, and the cashier tries to pay them out their winnings in the form of 50-dollar banknotes, chances are they will most probably refuse it.
Changing Your Fortune with Soap and Water?
Yup, you read that right, folks. It seems that carrying a bottle of Purell (or any other similar product) with you while entering and playing at a casino, may just turn your luck around! Well, at least that’s what some gamblers believe. There is this particular belief that the chips you’ve touched are filthy, and it may not be so wrong.
The nasty truth of the matter is, some players think that not washing their hands may end up in their favor and increase their luck. They think that if, say, they’re in the middle of a major winning streak, washing their hands before they are done could break that streak!
The disturbing result is that they might just go a long period without touching water or soap…yes, even after using the restroom. The only good news with such a dirty superstition is that once they end up with a losing streak after all, some major hand-scrubbing follows!
