Will they let you do that as front money? Iím tired of carrying cash through the airport hoping I donít get hit with a random inspection and having to explain the cash. Civil forfeiture is a damn pain.



One time I was going through the airport in Texas on my way to Vegas and I had over $230,000 in my carry on bag. I was a little nervous but it was all legitimate. My bag went through xray and got flagged for a check. I became nervous. I hadn't realized that my business partner put a bag of coins in my carry on. A bag of coins looks like a suspicious metal blob on the xray. They opened my bag and saw the bag of coins and let it pass through without any further inspection.

Lesson: Never put a bag of coins in your bag if you are carrying lots of cash.

My old man was an engineer and made pretty decent coin. Not carry around a quarter of a mil in cash decent coin.

That was a special occassion, I have only had large sums of cash on me like that twice. Once was much more but I was just the courier, it wasn't mine,

Say you win 6 figures on a crap game but you have no bank account in Vegas. Do you just walk into some Too Big To Fail Bank that has no branches within 100 miles of your home and open an account and deposit the money before you go through an airport where asset forfeiture is the way they do business there?

The cage will write you a check. You can also put your cash in their safe while you are a guest. Your host (if you win six figures and donít already have one, one will find you) will make it easy for you to keep your funds with them.

You could even use your bank's mobile app to deposit the check before you even leave the casino.

Have fun depositing a large check via your cell phone. Most limit deposits to under 2K.

My Wells Fargo app allows me to deposit $50k a week via the app. I have never tested that limit.

Some casinos will also agree to wire it. However, the cashiers are hesitant because it involves a lot more paperwork than just getting a check for you. Casinos prefer to give you cash because they think they have a chance back at getting their money back thinking you may wager some more if you had cash readily available.

Is there a limit on how much front money you can rack up on a winning streak? Is there a limit for how much front money you can use at the tables? Like can I use front money to buy-in at a table for $100K, then win to $500K, and put that $400K profit into the front money pot, then play again?
