How to use Casino Credit
If you play slot machines, you would proceed to the casino cage, present your ID and ask for a marker. You can sign a marker for any amount up to your available credit limit. The cashier will then issue you cash or a slot voucher to play with. If you play table games, you would proceed to the game of your choice (excluding poker room) and ask a dealer for a marker. The table games supervisor will issue your chips to play with.
When do you have to pay back the balance of your Casino Credit line?
Markers that have been issued to you during your stay are considered to be counter checks and have deposit dates based on their face value.
• Markers up to $1,000 will be deposited to your checking account in 7 calendar days
• $1,001 up to and including $5,000 will be deposited in 14 calendar days
• $5,001 and above will be deposited in 45 calendar days
