In Canada, most only dispense in multiples of $20.00, some will dispense
$10.00.   But they all start with entering the cents and progress to the
dollars.  Most machines are at banks which also take deposits where
depositing a check for $1201.18 could be possible or normal.  I don't
think I've had many paychecks that have ended up without any cents in
the number.  :)
