    Does anyone know if this is available? I don't mean a safe deposit box as if you are staying for a few days in the hotel and you get one. I mean like a safe deposit box where you pay like $100 security deposit and have access to it. Basically like a box similar to like a safe deposit box in a pokerroom.


    I am going to be in vegas soon and will be staying at hotels for a few weeks. However, after this I might be looking an apartment or an extended stay. I would obviously prefer to not carry cash with me the whole time and prefer to have a box at the casino.


    Does anyone know of any casinos that offer this? I know for poker players there are... problem is you need to be like a high stakes player or at least mid stakes players and put a ton of hours and the floor needs to know you. I also heard that even for some of these poker rooms... there is a huge waiting list for a box. I would prefer a box so I won't have to carry cash everywhere I go. I know the other thing is I could go to the bank but the problem is I don't have a car and thus buses don't even ride there. And riding a bus there everyday would be extremely time consuming.


    Does anyone know if any is available? I heard if there is... they just take your id and information and you leave a $100 deposit and when you don't want it anymore... they give you back your deposit etc. I would really want to know if anyone knows if these boxes are available.

    Now much money are your talking about here?

    Would you tend to play at one place and have a credit line open?

    I'm currently staying at Imperial Palace. There is no safe in the room. I do not want to keep anything in a safe in a room as i'm sure many of you know anyone can open it pretty easily as evident in youtube videos.

    I read somewhere that if you are a guest at a casino, you can leave money at the cage? Someone told me they did this at another casino and he mentioned he did stay at the casino hotel. Does anyone know if this is a safety deposit box or is it a cage? Or is it a safety deposit box at the cage?

    I also was told by someone that this is free because you are a guest but I think some casinos charge a fee for it? The reason why i think this is because ballys had a safe deposit box for use in the hotel room and they charge like $3-$5 per night use. But i'm interested about a place where i can keep money and some other valuables in a casino as oppose to a room safe.

    I had a safe deposit box in Bills Gambling Hall, back in August 2010. Cost $60 deposit.

    Many of the hotels have safe deposit boxes in either the cage area or at the front desk.

    Typically, the boxes at the front desk are free of charge for guests, so you'll be required to show ID and room key, etc. when getting one.

    On the other hand, usually a place where the boxes are in the cage area will allow anyone to get a box for any length of time. Policies vary, but there will usually be either a short or long term rental or it can be free, but they might ask for a refundable deposit in the event of having to re-key in case of a lost key.

    I used to keep a box at the Union Plaza a number of years ago and learned the hard way to put your rerceipt IN the box! They won't refund your deposit without your receipt when you surrender the box.

    Just ask the cashier at the cage about their policy and you should be fine.

    Casino cage has what you're looking for while staying at the hotels.

    If you're planning on an extended stay in Las Vegas, you might want to consider storing your
    valuables in a safety deposit box at the closest USPS/Post office.

    Maybe the slow response is that most people don't bother. They just carry the cash around. How much are we talking about here?

    As to banks, there are ATMs up and down the strip. Yea, they do charge $5 to get money out of them unless your own back, but way easier than driving to a bank - in my opinion.

    Bring your own!

    Last year I saw a lady in the Bally's/Paris parking garage with a small firesafe with digital keypad stacked on top of her luggage.

    Now that's a good way to keep your money away from any dishonest employee that may enter your room, but on the other hand it makes for a nice carrying case for them with all your cash and valuables inside.
    Then they take the whole thing home and open it with a dremel or a small block of explosives!

    The safe on the luggage was just a diversion.

    The real stash was in the phony can of brake fluid in their carry-on bag!

    1. Go to your bank.
    2. Ask for a security bag. They're the heavy canvas bags that zip up and lock. Most banks give them to you for free.
    3. Pack security bag in luggage.
    4. Put cash and chips in security bag, take keys with you and stop worrying.
