I'm really not sure what I think about this.

On the one hand we've all heard the old adage "honesty is the best policy". I'm sure she can go to sleep nights knowing that she's not going to be arrested for stealing a found item, which is what the law would dictate.

On the other hand I kinda question the "honesty" policy when it comes to an establishment that gets richer by exploiting the gambling addictions of certain people without even a tinge of conscience entering into the debate. How many poor buffoons have gambled away the house payment or the kids' college funds (I know a couple of chowderheads that have done this) and the casino just sits back and lets the electronic counters total up their daily take.

Of course there's the plight of the armored car drivers. Does that $224K get taken out of their asses? Maybe that's part of what needs to be considered.

Opinions from my Dudeist brethren/sisteren about this? What would you do in her place?

Honesty is a very dude-like quality. No one is perfect at it, I'm not, I make mistakes here and there, but I believe that honesty should be a basic tenant of Dudeism.

That's just like my honest opinion, man.

It's just like my opinion man, but I think that is covered in...."Don't be a Dick!".
$224K dude. The least they could do is give her 20 grand and a Beamer!

Man I dunno Dude, that's a tough one. I mean, on one hand it's not like the money was some old widows inheritance in which she needs to live on, but simply a bit of money from a corporate machine that in a way robs people daily. I'd have a hard time turning it in, but I'd also have a hard time sleeping soundly if I kept it.

Like in movies where someone finds drug money or whatever and keeps it... my thought is someone somewhere is really missing that money and will be looking for it.

In this case it'd prolly bring about more problems than good.

that's easy, big money means big trouble, if this money comes out of nowhere.

giving it in is the best way to ensure security, show honesty and maybe getting a little bonus for it (the casino are a-holes if they didn't give her at least a tiny portion of that sum)

I recently started thinking about how to start a career as a professional player. I started thinking about it when I discovered Towerbet (https://tower.bet/wheel). This is an amazing opportunity not just to play, but to take a break from the routine. This is a real chance to hit the jackpot. I think my chances are pretty good. I'm sure you should try this site.

My point, Dude, is why should we settle for twenty grand when we can keep the entire million. 
Am I wrong?

I believe that taking at least some money and saying that it was blowing in the wind is the best option. Well, I already manage to make good money by playing on https://parimatch.in/en/casino/slots/game/microgaming-other-munchkins-desktop (https://parimatch.in/en/casino/slots/game/microgaming-other-munchkins-desktop), but it's never too much money, and I'm pretty sure everyone would take this money.
