The picture also comes with a nice sheet of coupons. I won 80 bucks while earning the needed points for the free shirt, and another 30 on the match play. I have a trip in July (with Vegas noob) and in September (with group of guys, many downtown noobs) and plan to take them both to Binion's because of this display. Mr. Martin is indeed correct that they're probably getting back their 1000/week lost interest and then some. Consider it a marketing expense.

This is one of my FAVORITE pictures from our trip last month.
I LOVE hugging all that money!
And being with my Wife and Daughter!
They need to get some fake bills that you can throw while standing behind the display for your photo.
Right. There is obviously a value to a display that is impressive. A casino would gain nothing by putting green blotting paper inside the stacks or something. Or making it a fake photo opportunity. Or a legitimately correct but unimpressive arrangement of the currency. Its an advertising gimmick and is probably a fairly good "draw" as an attraction in the area. Some think the photo beats out those key chains and fake dice or edge-trimmed card decks. Its a way of the casino getting momentos with their logo on it all over the various hometowns and perhaps into the various hometown newspapers.Quote: DJTeddyBear
Good point. So it's all real, just not all Benjamins.

Personally, I would think it would be cooler to have it in a clear acrylic briefcase with all $100 banknotes, with a kevlar strap holding it down to the floor. That way you could pick it up an pose for a picture.
The new display is 79,100 banknotes:
$270,000 in $100 banknotes weighing 6 pounds
$688,000 in $20 banknotes weighing 76 pounds
$42,000 in $1 banknotes weighing 92 poundst.
How do you know this?
By the way, I had my pictures taken with the 1M (again) before WoVcon today. In my earlier estimates I figured the base was a square. However, when I got up close it was more of a rectangle of about 2x3 dimensions, with the long side facing the camera.
