If I wire money to the casino cage then, at the end of the trip, any funds remaining from what I wired will be returned to the source. Any funds in excess of what I wired are available to me in cash, check, bank transfer etc. Consider this semi-hypothetical scenario: I wire funds, say $20000, to the casino cage I take markers for $4000-$5000 at the tables I sometimes leave with some chips left ($1000-$3000), occasionally I win and choose not to redeem the marker and leave with $5000-$10000 I do not redeposit my chips at the cage but cash them in smallish amounts, around $2000 I continue this process until all the wired funds have been used for markers and converted to cash and chips For any further play I buy-in with cash or chips at the table At the end of the trip I leave with the $20000 I wired, plus or minus winnings/loses, all in cash Any problems with this approach? I know all the other options open to me to get gambling funds in Vegas, customs regulations and so on. I want to know whether there is an obvious snag with the approach I outlined. Thanks.
