    How do you get and save your Vegas gambling money.?

    I've been collecting aluminum cans to sell for scrap for about 6 months and I sell blood at the blood bank 3 times a month, but I can't seem to collect enough money for a great trip.....

    I saw online this morning that people can get up to $9,000 for donating one of their kidneys and up to $15,000 for donating one of their lungs...

    That would give me some better spending cash for Vegas. .. I wonder though that if I sell one of my lungs, would the cigarette smoke that is so prevalent in Vegas really bother me...

    So, how do you get and save gambling money for your Vegas trips.??

    I have a stand-alone credit union account...and a portion of each paycheck is direct-deposited there...out of sight/out of mind... that is my gambling fund.
    Any winning trip (or losing trip when bankroll cash still remains) is added back into the fund.
    I use FF miles for most of my Vegas flights, and only stay in comped rooms.
    So - my only unbudgeted "expense" for Vegas trips is the value of the days off I take from work in order to go.

    Everytime I think about going to a local I just remember I'd rather spend it in Vegas and just accumulate that between trip.
    I have drastically reduced any local trips last year.

    Me too.

    I just throw money into a USD account every month and add back any $$ coming home from previous trips. Stick to the same daily BR, and if I blow it, I blow it......it's my entertainment $$ for Vegas!!

    To those that may not know my strange humor, I was only kidding about selling a kidney or lung or selling blood... I'm so old that I'd only get about $10 ..anyway.....lol

    Instead i'm gonna go to Vegas on those real hot summer days and sell cold bottled water for $5 a bottle... then I can gamble forever..lol

    Coinstar baby! Actually, just use discretionary income. We are fortunate that we have a sizeable discretionary income so we do not need to have a special gambling budget.

    That's what I do only I cut my local out altogether...it's a small little dump so that helps...anything over $250 win is a hand pay and they announce it over the PA lol

    Not too hard for me to save up for Vegas when I would usually take $450 or so to the local and go 4-5 times a month so bankroll savings can add up quickly

    Lol anything over $250 a hp must be a native one

    Nope Great Canadian Casino. Ours is the only one that does such a low amount to trigger a handpay...pretty sure they do it so they are announcing a lot of jackpots and appears there are so many big winners when really thats not the case...it's tighter than the Aria slots lol

    This just reminded me of my big handpay in Sydney, Nova Scotia. I was so excited when the machine locked up and then BOOM - a whopping $250.

    That reminds me. I put that envelope with Canadian $$ somewhere safe... Wonder if I can find it before G2e and pad my bankroll a wee bit!

    Haha- I played at that casino in Sydney this summer!! Sadly I couldn't even get a handpay at that level.:(
    Good luck in finding your extra stash, it sounds like it's lucky winning money - that can only be good mojo for Vegas!
