Go to a video poke machine. Feed it $500 to $1000.

Just cash it out. Not even play a hand.

Repeat a couple of times.



Good luck with that. Most systems have checks in place to notify someone when a player is putting in money and cashing out without the appropriate level of play. You are not the first one to think of that.

Interesting. Seems like it'd have to be a large amount, or Ive been lucky where the machines I've done that on didn't have the check in place....or else they did check me out and realized what I was doing was OK. I've made 6-7 $1K tickets in a row with no issues. Of course I've used them to play, not just an immediate cash out.

If you are using a player card they are more lenient because they can look at your history and if you actually play. Otherwise they can refuse to cash out your tickets until you provide ID and they fill out an SAR.

I'm no expert here- but if I were to find a suitcase full of unexplained cash, this is what I'd do:

Go to the largest casino - one I don't play at - Let's say Beau Rivage in Biloxi.

Go to a video poke machine. Feed it $500 to $1000.

Just cash it out. Not even play a hand.

Repeat a couple of times.

Go to the ticket / cash out machine. Feed it one ticket.
Go to another ticket/cash out machine, feed it another.

Keep going until I've swapped all my "found" money for the casino's "clean" money. That deals with any serial number issues. Obviously, the more money you have, the more tedious this would be.

Now, to come up with a way to explain the reason behind the accumulation of funds - small, numerous pay outs.

Apply online for a Bluebird (American Express) card. They're free, and issues without credit check.

Deposit a grand or so, on different days.

Now you have stored value that you can pull out when you want at any atm.

Repeat as necessary


You do realize that a casino is really just a bank with better surveillance cameras. All those bills you deposited at the casino will be traced back to you in very short order.

Money laundering is why Walter White bought
the car wash, so he could legitimize some of his
drug money. It's why the Mob owned restaurants
and nightclubs. With fake receipts you can claim
you make 10 times what you really made. That
way you can buy an expensive house and the
gov't can see where you got the money. It's
why Tony Soprano had the strip joint.

I think some member of the forum did this to the VP machine and the whole sum of money is VOID.

What about putting a bunch of hundreds into a casino "bill breaker" machine, over and over?

I was thinking you should be able to do that. But then what have you got? Seems like what someone would have is whole lot of small bills, and still no explanation, paper-trail, excuse, or anything they didn't have before for where the big honkin' sack of green moolah originally came from.

I know of one thing that is sometimes done, or at least I think and pretty strongly believe that I do, and I have some reason to think it is being done right now by at least one specific high-profile individual who goes to great lengths to represent himself in public (and more than once in court) as a super successful brilliant gambler/sports-bettor. As best I believe I understand it, from what I'm told by some who are in a position where I think they should know what they're talking about, it is like this: Someone I'll name "Vinny The Weasel" has a million bucks he needs to launder from something like his bi-weekly take off the gals he controls in the back room of the Bada Bing in, let's just randomly say Philly, who are strongly rumored in that cheesesteak & canolli neighborhood to be in the not entirely legal business of selling some kind of magic dust and certain 'under-the-table' type personal relaxation services, along with the 'office' for some undocumented highly informal extraordinary daily-rate high-interest loans in the neighborhood. If Vincent T. Weasel doesn't do anything to report the proceeds of his financial wizardry to the IRS as required by law he could end up getting assigned an inmate number in Leavenworth, and if he does accurately report it he surely will.

But lucky for Mr. V.T. Weasel, his "family" is able to recommend a friendly helpful and discreet fellow. William Liquidity the self-described sports genius in Vegas is available to solve just his sort of problem. W.L. places a million bucks in wagers (through a platoon of runners he regularly uses to be able to get all the action down) on both sides of a game, betting both on say the Mets, and also on the opposite side on the Royals, weighted for an equal net payout return regardless of outcome. Royals win (yeah right whatever as far as Vinny & William are concerned) and he potentially cashes out for almost but not quite a million, after accounting for about five percent in vig and a little more for the kickback for his runners. The Weasel gets back actual hard copy winning tickets amounting to something like 85-90% of his million bucks if that's what best suits his little laundry & document problem, and Mr. Liquid still profits easy-peasy no-risk to the tune of about five percent or so of the million (with the same documentary paper trail) for providing the felonious tickee-tickee, washee-washee service, while Vinny now has documentation of his claim that he's just a semi-respectable little corner businessman who happens to be lucky to also be a great big whale of a gambling man with brass cojones. As does Mr. Liquidity, the great sports "handicapper/bettor."

At least, that's how I think I understand this particular version of doing it, as someone who truly has never been involved in anything of the sort, and therefore may very easily misunderstand some part, from what I recall of what I've been told by a few individuals I know of who you may or may not wish to believe. In this case, I happen to think that I do have reason to tend to believe them, though I could certainly be wrong to do so or could have something in how it works mixed up.

Somebody once told me they knew a guy who wants to sell $100k in $20s and $10s..... Sounds sketchy but they guy that told me is trustworthy, but I don't know anything about the guy with money. I think we haggled for $90k but nothing came out of it. So I guess some people are just lazy.

I'm still amazed at the stories I hear from APs.
