Hi Ben, can you tell me how you change & take your money out to Vegas ? Im playing higher stakes now and going for 6 weeks so need to take a lot more than previous trips. Do you search out the best rate and change here or wire to casino etc ? Is there an easy way of getting large amounts out once you are over there too ? Also do you tell immigration what you do for a living or just keep quiet when filling out the over $10,000 in currency form ? Also do you have any method of getting a decent rate when changing back when back in England. If you dont want to answer in comments for obvious reasons you can comment on my blog and i wont publish it or email me at

Thx in advance

Hi Rob

Firstly, never tell immigration what you do, and don't take over $10000 in cash as they may confiscate it.

Personally i have a US $ bank account that your bank should set up for you with no fee (im with HSBC). You can then transfer it from your US $ bank account to either the hotel you are staying or the Rio.

Then if you have any that needs sending back, you can have it sent direct to your US $ bank account and negotiate a rate with your bank which will be better than if you get it sent direct from Vegas to a UK £ bank account.
