Re: Carrying Cash in Vegas

i prefer to exchange my currency into quarters, get a backpack full of them, it is a workout to hike the strip and also it is proper BRM.

Some safes reset after a few tries but some allow any number of attempts. People would come in the store with combination locks that they had set and then forgotten the combination. I could open a 3 digit lock in about 5 minutes. A 4 digit lock would take under an hour typically. And for the maids remember that they are in the room every day so they can treat it like a 3-digit lock 10 times (or try twice a day on 5 different days) because people don't typically change their passcodes.

He claimed they were quite nonchalant about it, like this sorta thing happens regularly, and when he tried to formally voice a complaint they weren't interested at all in hearing it.
The two places I have used boxes, they open the boxes in front of me. So if there was confusion about the box number I would be able to catch it right away. They have to use the key they gave me originally and then their master key at the same time. I now would be nervous if they were opening the boxes in a place that I couldn't see. Typically that should not be the case because they wouldn't want you to worry once you hand them your box (with valuables) that they are going to switch boxes on you once they are out of sight...

To the Original Post, I just came back from Vegas and carried $9,000 - $14,000 every day. I carried most of it in a fanny pack hidden under my shirt and pants (it slid comfortably to a resting place on my hip). And the rest of the money (2 buy-ins) I broke up and put in two pockets. I also had carrying around money in a money clip in case the thief was unlike everybody else who ever robbed me and didn't want me to empty all of my pockets.

Standard. Most women are money grubbing hookers who have no problem stealing your kidneys while you're sleeping.

Also, fixed your post.

[x] workout, assuming bankroll doesn't consist of <$1k
[ ] smart BRM having backpack full of loose change in a town that thrives on coin operated gambling

I'd recommend converting to pennies for better BRM and greater exercise.

Terrible advice, considering the hassles involved in cashing a $5k chip, particularly if you didn't earn it gambling.

Re: Carrying Cash in Vegas

How hard is it to break into a hotel room safe?

4. Otherwise if it's an amount more than you're comfortable carrying just pull it out of one of the banks while you're there.
I'm from the UK so unless there is a Santander bank in vegas im stuck carrying cash.
