        Tony brought up an interesting point in his recent post.

        He wrote about the (honest) need to have some help in limiting play so our humanity does not get the better of us when we gamble.  Truly, that is THE down fall of gambling.  It isn't so much bad luck.  Frankly, I am a believer that bad luck can be evened out by money management.  The down fall are things like:  playing too long, chasing a loss, etc.

        So, here is what I do at land based casinos that really works:  I take two mini lock boxes with me.  These are about the size of a paper back mystery novel that you can buy them for about $12 at any office supply store.  They come with TWO keys.  Leave one key at HOME.  While gaming, put some winnings in one of the boxes, lock it, and FLUSH the key down the toilet.  Do this same thing with box #2.  (Or as many boxes as you want to take!)

        You see the point?  The only way to open it is at home...away from the casino.  This method assures you that you'll have some measure of cash at the end of your trip.

        i like that idea too!
        very good:)

        on the other hand, crazy as i am, i would kill that box if i thought i really had to, in the casino: smash it, drive over it with a truck, anything:)
        so it still comes down to staying cool

        Interesting doc.  So when you go back to the casino with the boxes you gotta buy another key?

        I agree with dirks.....just throwing my money away on the stupi box because if i really need it i will break the stupid thing to get my money!!! I'll just stay with my method of only bringing what I plan to spend...no checkbooks and no debt/credit cards!!

        dirk....I just have an image of you going to a hardware store and buying a torch to get the damn thing open!  Ha!

        No, if you buy the right box, you cannot open it with hotel room items!  I buy a new box each time I go.  I consider it $12 in insurance money to come home with something!

        I can see this being workable.

        Say you had a VERY nice hit. Some for the box, some for the wallet...Hmmm..Pretty slick way to come home without just a sad face...;D

        I started this after a trip to AC when I was up about 3000-4000, but LOST it all in about an hour.  I am still kicking myself!  Yeah, Genenco, I win some put most in the box and lock it up.  This way I am assured to come home with some cash.
