    Just wondering what the exchange rate is like at the moment at the Casino cage.

    I can currently get 1.53 of your lovely dollars for my £1 sterling in our travel agents.

    Anyone seen what the exchange rate is at the cage in the casino as I normally find it better than changing money here.

    Not long to go now :beer:

    If you find it is normally better then that should be good enough, no?

    Two quick thoughts:

    1) An advantage of exchanging money at the casino cage is that they give you a receipt with a date and time stamp. For up to 24 hours you can exchange some or all of the money back to the casino at the exact same exchange rate

    2) Overall any exchange rate difference is only going to be somewhere in the area of a half to two up to maybe two percent. So on $2500 thats only going to be $15-25 "lost" on the exchange rate...
