Carrying Cash in Vegas

I'm headed to Vegas in about a week. I've been there once before, but was only a lowly 1/2NL player and just carried around 1000-1500 in my pocket. This time, I'm going to be playing some 5/10NL and want to take ~10k. What's the best way? To me, this seems like to much to just take out in cash. What are my other options, or am I just being paranoid?

That amount should be no problem.

You are taking your Glock, correct?

Re: Carrying Cash in Vegas

I just got back from my first trip to Vegas and at least some of the casinos do have lockboxes so you don't have to leave with money. I did anyway but the way I dress, ain't nobody robbin me. If anybody puts me on having more than 35 cents, they deserve my money.

Staying at Harrah's, and probably playing at the Bellagio and/or Wynn. I might play the $2500 Venetian ME on Sunday.

I think his intent was to get your location and rob you.

I always choose a room with an in-room safe. You can also reduce the bulk of carrying around your roll in your pocket by using a few high denomination chips instead. You are less likely to spend those in places where you shouldn't!

You can carry 10k in your pocket. That's small change.

Re: Carrying Cash in Vegas

I got one of these
http://www.rei.com/product/617988

It goes under your shirt and pants, and in the small of your back it is surprisingly unobtrusive and not uncomfortable. But I was not carrying as many hundreds as you, so I can't say if the bulge would feel different. I think I was carrying $4K.
