(c) Receive cash or chips from the count room; and
(d) Perform functions necessary to ensure accurate accountability of funds and chips consistent with these requirements, including, at least:
(i) Reconciling the total closing inventory with the total opening inventory; and
(ii) Receiving request for fill slips in exchange for issuing fill slips and requested chips or coin; and
(iii) Receiving chips or coins removed from gambling tables in exchange for issuing a credit slip; and
(iv) Receiving documents with signatures that ensure the effective segregation of duties; and
(v) Counting and recording the face value of each cage inventory item on a cage inventory count sheet, along with the total opening and closing inventories, at the end of each of their outgoing shifts; and
(vi) Signing, at their incoming and outgoing shift, the cage inventory count sheet, attesting to accuracy of the count; and
(vii) Preparing the overall cage reconciliation and accounting records; and
(viii) Forwarding, at the conclusion of the daily gambling activity, copies of the cage inventory count sheet and related documents to the accounting department for reconciling the agreement of opening and closing inventories, notification of error slips, and the agreement of amounts on other forms, records, and documents recording transactions.
(2) Licensees may sell merchandise items out of the cashier's cage as long as they have a separate bank and receipting system for the sale and accounting of these items.
