      Hi Gang:
            I try to never use a ATM at the casino.
          For one, I go in with what I am going to spend and that's it.  However I must admit I have used an ATM once or twice. 
          Can you believe the fees associated with it? I was charged $1.50 from my bank for it being a foreign ATM withdrawl, and the casino got a fee of $3.00 for using their machine.  Times that fee by the number of people you see on a daily basis using the ATM and it is incredible.  The casino gets rich off those fees alone.
               
                  ATM machines are the "REAL" one armed bandit in my opinion.

      I't 3.25 at the casino I go to and would not want to admit how many times I have used it.  Thank the Lord there is a max per day that I can take out. lol

      OMG, i am one of them who have been tapped out and standing by the ATM to wait for the clock to strike midnight..its the nexy day according to the bank..and you then have your days max. to take out.

      Done that more times then i want to admit. And when your in the middle of gambling you DO NOT care how much the service charge is.

      great post Pam

      How about the stroke of Midnight as you are waiting for PAYDAY, and your check to be available to you at 12AM.

              Tony: you are so right, no one cares what the fees are when your gambling. We'll go back time and time again.

      Lordy, Lordy, lordy! How I identify with that!

      Recalling the times I was playing at the cardrooms in LaCenter WA (They used to be downtown Vancouver, but were banned by the Town Council) and I well remember losing a bundle, looking at my watch and waiting 20-30 minutes for the bank to "Refresh" the clock on the ATM.

      Luckily the bank was right across the street, so I didn't have to pay the fees.

      Now Spirit Mountain in McMinvillie, was a different story.

      The casino was 12-15 miles from the nearest bank ATM, so yeah, $2-$4 in fees for every withdrawal. But on the plus side, they were "Slide" types which (at worst) would simply reject card.

      Oh my goodness, yes I have too many times. Everytime I go I tell myself I am not going to use the ATM, but I do it anyway.

      I bet my bank thinks I am nuts.
       
                "According to this you withdrew how much to gamble at the local casino ;D"

           I say "Mind your own buiness!!
                  It's my job, I was working. "LOL

      Hey PMM....I've got an even worse case senario for ya.....how about not even waiting until midnight and instead after you have reached you max withdrawl for a 24 hour period, you use the option to CHARGE you debt card at the atm machine.....$30 fee for that option and I am guilty as charged!!!!!!  Several times lol...........most casino's also have a check cashing window somewhere in the building......guilty of that also, and the rates for that is even more outrageous!!!!

      Like a major DUMMY I did a cash advance with my CC and they charged me over $30.  Never will do that again.
