I need to know where you were at that is not how it's suppose to work sounds like your td did not give them to you moment you reached $5 or $10. Please let me know location you were at so I can fix the problem.

It seems that you are trying to promote increased spending with the host venues which is very good. However, waiting until after the break to hand out the bonus chips, for food/beverage purchases, may cause many to wait and place their orders until then because if they bust out before the break they do not receive the bonus chips for spending. Still others will not spend anything unless it appears they will make it to the break. You might want to consider giving out the chips when the player submits their tab to the TD during play. Again this will get folks spending and not waiting to spend.

It includes food as well as beverages!

when you use the term "from the bar", does this mean beverages......or alcoholic beverages.......and/or does it include food?

Top 32 from each area... what about venue winners for the season? Do they receive anything? What about adding them to the 10k?
