    Probably a dumb-a$$ question but we've sadly not made it to Vegas for a little over 2 years now and just wondering whether there are any problems with the machines with the old $100 bills? Our bankrolls (or what's left of them sometimes) tend to just sit in the safe from one trip to another so all our hundies are the old style notes. Honestly don't remember encountering any problems when the $20's were changed and I know we had plenty of the older versions of those but thought I'd best ask anyway ...

    Thanks in advance,
    Furry

    I had three varieties of C-notes last trip and the machines didn’t have a problem with any of them.

    Thanks thecarve, didn't think there would be a problem but always nice to have a definitive answer.

    Appreciated,

    It is not the problem with old bills, it is the newer ones.

    Every time a new bill comes out, they have to add the new mapping into the reader. If the reader is too old, they cannot do this and have to reinstall a newer reader to accommodate the new bills.

    Not a problem, unless your at the Lion Share. I read that one is really picky.... Pile of Junk.... Oops, did I say that.. :evillaugh

    Whivgoytube, understood. No chance of us going anywhere near the Lion Share I'm pleased to say - been following the thread on here about it every now and then and I'm one of those of the opinion that it won't hit for a long time yet, besides not sure I want to waste valuable Vegas time having someone count out over $2.3M on a handpay ;)

    I've not heard of anybody having problems with old bills but if you actually did have one you could either just press the SERVICE button on a slot machine and when an attendant comes have them exchange it for a newer bill or go to the casino cage and just exchange a bunch at once.

    Thanks Auggie, am kinda hoping we'll never actually find out as we'll each pop a Jackson in the first machine we play and win enough to not need to go anywhere near the rest of the bankroll for the entire trip anyway ;)

    the 2 generation ago c notes are a real bitch to get to work in slot machines, the bill breakers seemed to like them ok though

    Since the old school bills are nearly extinct, on the odd chance I come across one, I set it aside in my vacation fund, although they're so rare to find in circulation these days that I have a hard time spending them any more. (Makes me wish I were a bank teller.)

    I currently have one old school $20 bill, one $10 bill and two $5 bills, and the $10 bill was just procured last month from a buddy in Stinktown. I happened to see it in his cash at the bar and asked him to trade for it. He thought I was nuts. I am, but that's another story.

    Have not had a problem with either, the old or new bills. I prefer the old bills though and request them at my bank prior to a trip. The reason isn't because of the machines. New ones tend to stick together and I have hard enough trouble hanging on to my money the way it is.:evillaugh
