    This might be a stupid question but why do you care if they get the buy in correct? Comps are based on average bet, not the buyin.

    Buy in does factor in comp equation so they can calculate win/loss

    So here's the thing, variance is an itch and a bitch. Sometimes if you scratch it too long, you will bleed.

    I experienced a gusher that cost me $7k ($2k at UTH and $5k at BJ). So that puts me at "only" +$6k for the trip.

    Took a power walk to clear my head, chatted with a Vegas friend briefly (thanks C!) and it worked!

    Sat back down with $2k from front money and 2 excruciating and torturous shoes later I colored up with $11k.

    Back up $14k+ for the trip.

    Good job.

    I assume that means even more money on deposit.

    Are they just saying that you can cash out at the end of the trip? Or you can cash out now but they wont let you play again?

    Very annoying experience I'm sure.

    They're only allowing me to cash out what I buy in with. But at the end of the cruise I'm definitely going to cash out. Lols

    I still don't understand why you can't cash out.

    I'd lose confidence in the casino.

    I am mostly on specialty gambling cruises on Royal and Carnival, but I have never heard of putting winnings "on account". I guess if someone were to win $50k+, then maybe, but not $10k. Try this- Bet $1k on a BJ hand and if you lose, you put your hand out when they start to take the money and say "Ill put $600 of that on account for you" :) . j/k of course. Keep having fun!!

    He hasn't posted all day. Maybe he asked for his money and they tossed him overboard.

    Close. Variance caught up since last night and now I'm stuck for the trip. Nothing has worked. Moving to three different tables, playing three hands, etc. full on monkey tilt took over. FML

    But I have more food porn!
