    really naive question about sports betting at a casino?

    hoping people can help on this.

    is it possible to have a local electronic account with the big sports books in vegas? i.e. i would give them $10K and then i would use a card/account number to bet in person or on the phone (obviously there are out-of-state issues for phone)... basically don't have to carry around cash....... i remember many years back a radio host betting on horse races here in canada on the phone. never heard of it since but i don't know much... EDIT: when i say with the "big sports books" i basically mean affiliated sports books. obviously not a card for all sports books or anything
    on a secondary note, how much does it cost to have a safety deposit box at a major vegas casino? i've read about it with poker players.
    on a last note, if sports books are from the same family, are they generic as to betting limits etc? or does a giant sports book in vegas have higher limits than small one in laughlin even though they are part of same network?

    thx in advance

    William Hill has on site and online.

    Unless you're parking 25k+ I don't think you need a private box.

    I've wired $15k to Cromwell cage, they hold it for ya and disperse as requested, free.

    Alot of casinos will give you a box if you are staying there. The ones in the poker room are hard to get as they stay full. I had one years ago at the MGM all that was required was a $100 deposit. Wish I never had gave it up.

    You can also get what is called a front money account where you just deposit money and get it from the cage as needed.

    The books have apps nowadays you can deposit 10k on your caesars or westgate app and bet on your phone as long as in Nevada.
