    pros & cons: local weekly payout vs. online acct.

    I've never had an online account, but I can imagine this a local con:

    Harder to save the BR when the cash flow is constant each week. I can come up a dime, take the lady out, lose a nickel the next week, and be worse off having won the nickel.

    Can anyone else give a pro or con for each side of the discussion?

    no betting over your head with money you don't have by playing online, no chance of getting stiffed online if playing with a good book

    I'd much rather have a local. I piss away money online because I put off getting a payout. Won some tonight, then decided to go to the casino for fun, end up losing it all.

    Pro-Local You don't have to worry about meeting your rollover requirement to make a withdrawl.
    Pro-Some locals extend the deadline to getting a sports wager in.

    Con-Getting stiffed, getting banned by your local.
    Con- Limited action on some sports. May not have total lines for ncaa bball.
