    In the past when I've wired cash it's always when I've stayed at Red Rock and had no intentions of leaving the property for anything. Now a trip is planned at the MGM. If I were to wire cash to their cage, would other properties under the MGM umbrella recognize it or will the cash be property specific? Thanks in advance!

    Im almost 100% sure FM will be property specific but I think you can take your FM out and deposit it in the cage at another MGM property or any other property to use. Would be interested to know if an MGM property will just transfer it to another MGM property you want to go just by telling them.

    FWIW, I am only used to LOC'S but have read that FM is almost the same.

    They will not recognize it at other properties.

    Not true. You just need to go to the cage and have them transfer it to the MGM property of your choice.

    Thanks for the confirmation. Now an impromptu walk over to Aria won't be a hassle when it comes to cash.

    Word of advice, you should probably check with MGM on your request before you get there. Best to be 100% sure. Better to get the word directly from MGM so you aren't surprised if it isn't allowed or there are some rules or a delay in transferring your money.

    Yep. And remember that even though everything is under the big MGM umbrella, each resort is technically a separate legal entity.

    I know whenever cashing foreign cheques at the cage that are larger value they will call the hotel they are from and verify if you have outstanding markers. I've done this at the Mirage with Wynn chips. Within MGM Properties will they give any hassle about taking out against front money and taking the chips to another mgm property?

    I absolutely will check with the cage but any intel I can gather early is always a good thing. I'll report back after I call. Trip isn't for a month, so it'll be a few weeks.

    We were able to do this from MGM to Aria just a few weeks ago. It took no more than 5 minutes of paperwork.

    It probably was just my case Pleepleus, these guys essentially cut me off after my last trip. No doubt they had my card flagged at that point.
