    Es un documento de U.S.A y te amplío la oración:

    "All records will be held in a digital form including Reports which show specific GAME DROP and win amounts on a table by table basis"

    Tks in advance!

    Tal vez habla de ganancias y pérdidas de cada mesa (de póker, Blackjack, etc. supongo). Es pura adivinación.

    In English, if I lost $50 at the Blackjack table, I may say that I "dropped" $50. Since the report refers to a table by table basis, my guess would be that it refers to how much the house (the casino) won and lost per table, but it could be talking about the gamblers (assuming I am right that "drop" refers to loss").

    Suerte

    I have a different definition of "drop". When a casino employee visits a machine or table to remove the money that the table/machine has won, and then transports the money to the cage (the vault), then this is called a drop. So in my mind, the report is talking about dinero ganado y dinero recogido.
