Obtaining Credit with a Casino
If you do not want to travel with large amounts of cash, you can apply for a line of credit with a casino.
Call the casino and ask for the casino credit department to begin the application process. You’ll need to know your checking account number and social security number. How much credit you can establish will depend on your current bank balance or the six month’s average, whichever is the lesser of the two. This can all be done in advance via phone and fax with the final procedure taking place at the casino cage.
Once you’re all set up and ready to play, hand your players card and ID to a floor supervisor or pit boss and ask for a marker of the amount you’d like to borrow. He’ll come around with something for you to sign and then you can start betting. If you leave the table ahead, it’s best to pay back your marker right there. If you are behind, you can sort it out at the end of your trip.
