I am new to the world of gambling but I have to assume that this is the most chickenshit thing anyone's seen.
Maryland Live Casino has decided that their ATM's have a limit...and a $4 atm fee.
Care to guess how much you can withdraw at one time?
So, welcome to the tightest slots in 60 miles, currently no table games to speak of outside of a few ishuffle and ecraps boths, and valet drivers that can't drive stick.
BTW, if you want to withdraw $1000, that will cost you $16.

Being a native Baltimoron, this surprises me not in the least !
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

Check to see what they charge to write a check and you might save some money.

ATM's are opperated by the issuing bank, not the casino. They have nothing to do with it.


Omg, if the casino actually had something to say about what businesses operate on their own property. Be real.

Clarification, obviously casino ATM's have a premium withdrawal fee. I disagree about who sets the fees, as I understand the atm business model, it's basically a franchise owned by the atm owner (typically the store in which it is located (maybe they get to add a fee over the bank's fee)). Irrelevant.

The point is, the $250 withdrawal limit. They want you to pay that fee multiple times. Most people have a bank limit of $400 per card per day which would mean to get $400 out you'd have to do two withdrawals. And you don't even get to max out each withdrawal.

$250 limit? Ouch.

I have only used the casino ATM once (MGM Grand) and with the hefty $5.99 fee plus the $2 charge for my own bank, hopefully I'll never do it again. When going to local casinos, I always hit my bank's ATM before showing up if I need a bigger 'roll for the day.

This is a good lesson in the "convenience tax". In Las Vegas, that $7 Coke in the minibar is more than the $4 Coke down the hall in the vending machine, is more than the $1.50 Coke in the Walgreens just outside the casino. If you're willing to put out just a bit of effort, the cost of something goes down dramatically.

Having been to Arundel Mills before, I know there are multiple banks around the mall. I bet those ATM fees are dramatically lower. Also, I've heard Charles Town, in addition to having low ATM limits and high fees, only dispenses in $20s. Always fun to carry $500 worth of $20s in your wallet!

Also, it's quasi off-topic, but I was at the mall/casino a few days ago and large swaths of the casino floor have been curtained off to add table games. They'll definitely have their 120 table games for the opening, and it won't be like some of the casinos where they just dump them all in one spot. There will be multiple pits spread throughout the casino floor.

I am being real. The damn casino has no say on bank fees.


The ATM operators pay the casinos rentals/fees.
