    How often do Casinos check the table hold?

    How often do casinos check the hold on their tables? Nightly? Weekly?

    Say one were to take a large sum of money from a place day after day… how long until the casino would start realizing the table is losing instead of winning? Or winning much less than usual

    They check the hold every 8 hours when the shifts change, but they will realize a table is losing much sooner. Pit bosses are obsessed these days with keeping track of every chip and keeping a running tally of how every game is doing.

    I would imagine this would vary from store to store but my assumption would be at least every shift change.

    If the table is getting hit hard, they will need chip refills, and the pit will be on it pretty quick.

    Not always the case. Some casinos are SLOW.

    Totally dependent on casino size

    action, and tolerance level. If you can share details about the place, you can expect a better answer..
    But yes, every shift change, they count the chip-tray. they collect the drop every 24 hour..

    I’m not a wonger, and have been known to camp out at a table for many hours on end. I can’t think of a casino i’ve played at that doesn’t do a quick fly-by count every few hours.
