Vegas Casino Credit
Vegas casino credit allows you to gamble without having to carry a big wad of cash in your wallet. There are three forms of credit you can get at a casino: markers, front money and a Vegas line of credit. Keep in mind that not everyone is eligible for each form of credit and not all casinos offer them.
Sometimes referred to as check cashing credit, markers are a casino loan that you can use to play with. They sometimes look like traveler’s checks and you usually have 30 days to pay it back. Markers are basically IOUs written out to the casino.
Also known as a deposit account, front money is when you deposit your own money at the casino cage (the cashier). This is akin to opening up a checking account with the casino without having to deal with any fees. You can withdraw the money at any time to play with by signing a marker. Because you’re using your own money, there’s nothing to pay back and you can add money to your deposit account as you see fit.
Vegas line of credit
Similar to a mortgage or a car loan, the casino gives you money and expects it to be paid back within a specified length of time. It’s common for the casino to examine both your bank account and credit history to determine if you’re a suitable candidate.
What are the Benefits of Casino Credit?
Opening a Vegas line of credit has several advantages besides not having to keep your wallet stocked full of cash.
Benefits of Casino Credit:
- If you take out a marker and lose, some casinos offer a rebate on the amount you owe (usually about 10%).
- If you use the same bank account to open lines of credit at multiple casinos, you may be able to draw on all of them at the same time.
- Casinos don’t charge interest or fees on the money they loan you.
- A Vegas casino credit allows you to play without having to run to the ATM after depleting your cash reserves. Plus, ATMs have daily withdrawal limits and if you’re a high roller, this could be a problem.
What are the Disadvantages of a Vegas Line of Credit?
Vegas lines of credit do have some disadvantages, especially if you cannot pay back the loan.
Vegas Line of Credit Disadvantages:
- In order to be considered for a loan, you’ll need to provide lots of personal details such as your social security and bank account numbers.
- If an establishment provides you with a loan, they’re going to expect you to play in their casino.
- Failure to repay your loan can lead to ruined credit and even jail time.
- Receiving multiple lines of credit from different casinos could be used against you in divorce proceedings or other tricky legal situations.
What is the Best Way to get Casino Credit?
It is common practice to be asked to fill out a credit application before the casino is willing to front you the money. The best way to get casino credit is to apply at the casino (or casino group) you wish to gamble at.
The application will require the following information:
- Arrival date
- Limit requested per trip or 14 days
- Social security number
- Date of birth
- Applicant’s name
- Applicant’s address (including city, state and zip code)
- All phone numbers (home, cell, work)
- Photo ID number and expiration date (driver’s license, passport, etc.)
- Email address
- Name of employer (job title, company address, general phone number)
- Name of bank (plus account and routing number)
- Applicant’s signature
- The information above should be filled out online, mailed or faxed to the casino along with the following: current driver’s license, Golden nugget online bitcoin casino live dealers additional photo ID and a voided check.
Once your information has been received, the credit department of the casino will contact your financial institutions that you listed on the application. Afterward, they’ll ask the bank to check your account and share the date it was opened. In addition, they’ll ask whether the average numerical balance is “low,” “medium” or “high” to establish whether you’re able to pay back your Vegas line of credit.
While getting a Vegas line of credit is convenient, this is not a service to be taken lightly. Any money borrowed from the casino must be paid back within the agreed-upon amount of time in order to avoid collectors and legal hassles.

April Monthly Review
1. Favourite wine of the month?
Dandelions Vineyard, Legacy of the Barossa, 30 year old Pedro Ximenez. Barossa, Australia.
I tried this wine at the last Wine Century Challenge Meet and it was the perfect wine to end the night on. I have also tried and loved the Rose fro Dandelions Vineyard (review can be found here)
2. What has been the best value wine of the month?
I haven’t had a stand out value for money wine this month unfortunately.
3. What has been added to my to-try wine list?
Plantagenet, Galafrey and Orangje Tractor – these three wineries are ones which I did not managed to visit when I was down south due to falling sick. I do hope to be back down in that region in the near future!
4. What restaurants do I want to return to?
BF and I went to the Merrywell at Crown Casino for his birthday (another restaurant review in the que to get up on this blog!) we decided to order individual meals rather than from the share menu. I would love to and need to return and try their share food as well as to have another cocktail (pictured below) which was delicious!
5. What was my favourite meal this month?
The waffles at Little Creatures was a great way to celebrate BF’s birthday with friends.
6. Upcoming events for next month?
Good Food and Wine show – tickets went on sale May 1st, the show will be in town July 19-21. (entry costs $36, extra for wine and cheese classes and lunches)
7. Favourite wine packaging?
Express Winemakers have some fantastic artwork on their wines. Below is their Rosado which I have tried twice now and it is growing on me. I am curious as well to try the rest of their range!
2012 Express Winemakers ‘Rosado’. Tempranillo (Great Southern) and Grenache (Swan Valley), Australia.
Wine Express Makers, Rosaldo.
8. Best service?
Harewood Estate Winery – I had a fantastic time with the lady running the cellar door! She was informative and happy to discuss both their wines and recommend other wines to me to pursue my wine century challenge. I highly recommend visiting as the cellar door’s location has a fantastic view and a packed picnic would be a nice way to spend the afternoon.
9. Restaurant I am most keen to try next month?
Jamie Oliver’s new restaurant in town called Jamie’s. I’ve been eyeing off all the blog reviews of this place and am yet to see anyone not leave satisfied overall. I just need to get around to gathering some people and making a booking as I am not patient enough to wait in line!
Total: 46 varietals.
Until next time!
