    I was a Valley Forge Casino this past weekend. On Friday night, I was in the casino for about 11 hours. i played a lot of craps and a few other games with a few breaks in between for food and drinks, and had my best night in memory.

    I cashed out for last time at about 4AM. i was exhausted, and since they stop serving booze at 2AM, i was starting to get a little hungover. Embarrassed to say I had a few more drinks than I probably should have.

    So, as I thanked the cashier and stepped away from the cage to head to my room, I was surprised to see a security guard in my path. "Sir, would come with me for a moment?"

    Jarring. Alarming. Did they think I cheated somehow? Were they taking me in the back to beat me up or chop off a finger? Was I about to meet Joe Pesci? Well, no actually.
    We took a few steps to the security station, and he said "did you drop a hundred dollar bill at the bar earlier?" I replied honestly "not that I'm aware of, but it's not impossible."

    "I think you did." Another guard held up a $100 bill. "One of our staff found it under a bar stool at a video poker machine and turned it in. Surveillance went through the tapes and tracked it back to you."
    I said "I did play some video poker, but that was several hours ago."
    "That's right," he said, "they had you there last at 10:22."

    The other guard handed me the bill. It seems wildly inappropriate to tip a security guard (I think?), so all I could do was thank them profusely.

    Yep...Surveillance is "State of the Art" in the Casinos. The Surveillance room can "Freeze frame" a Fart, & play it back to ya in Slow Motion. Lol.

    Glad ya were reimbursed for what ya dropped on the floor!

    Very cool that casino security took the time to review the camera footage and then figure out where you were in the casino several hours later in order to return the money to you.

    BTW, are you a defense contractor with security clearance? If so, get rid of the bill immediately, lol.

    you are lucky. anyone passing by could have taken that bill and that would have been that.
    Im sure if the bartender saw it, he would have swiped it up in an instant.

    who says luck doesn't play a big part in winning?

    you can get in big trouble in a casino for doing that, and for cashing out money left on a slot
