Harrahs Online Casino Does Not "Cashout" From Their Location

    Just a heads up to my fellow New Jersey players. One thing I like to do is if I know I am going to Atlantic City I will play at the corresponding on-line site a couple of times beforehand and try to build up a little balance which I can cash-out from their main cage cashier when I get there. Kinda like extra 'money in the bank'.

    I'm going to Harrahs for a couple of nights so I played their on-line casino and built up a little bankroll. I then went to their on-line cashier and followed the prompts for withdrawing at the casino cage and then found out that in order to do this I will have to go to Caesars to get my money. Harrahs and Caesars are not walking distance apart so I either have to pay to park at Caesars ($20) or take a cab there or ride the Jitney to pick up money I won at Harrahs. It's not really THAT big of a deal but it is a inconvenience that makes no sense to me. Surely Harrahs has computers and money on hand so I don't get what the problem is.

    I'm going to get it somehow today while I am there but I wont do it again with this group till they get their act together.

    They charge $20 for parking at Harrahs? That has got to be one of the stupidest things I've heard of in a while. In Vegas, all the parking is for free at the big casinos.

    Welcome back, btw!

    Thanks CM!

    Actually, it's only Caesars that charges $20, most of the rest charge $5. I'll slum it on over there on the Jitney, that can be an adventure but I'm up for it!

    It's also just an inconvenience that in order to get your money you have to make pit stops all around town. I'm sure it's that way because of tax reasons or what not, but time is money.

    fee for parking

    First let me say, how patriotic and non money laundering online gambling became once they figured
    out a way to tax the money and get a USA casino online
    Still have not come up with a reason why other states have not followed suit
    Glad you can at least play on line and recover your stash

    I am amazed that anyone would pay 5.00 to park much less 20.00
    There are enough casinos around that let you park for free
    We have been going to casinos in different states and sometimes use valet parking
    Even that is free at most. We found one place that wanted 35.00 to Valet park. We did not use it
    Another one has started charging 3.00 to use Valet. What a shame as I always paid the person parking
    the person bringing our car at least 3 to 5.00 each. I park myself and they get nothing now
    We would drive 200 miles to another casino before paying to park but then that is us

    I've never seen paid parking in Canada; the casino gets the contents of my wallet once in the door anyway so why bother

    I know some people are enthusiastic and optimistic about online gambling based in the US, I'm not so much. I've played Harrahs in Vegas and Kansas City. My loyalty account is pretty devoid of offers and VIP status right now as I haven't played there in several years, but I usually get comped back from any silly dollars I have to spend when I hand a receipt or two to a casino host. I know some people can't or won't do that, but it has worked for me just fine on multiple occasions. This could be related specifically to Atlantic city, as it has been tough times for the casino biz there for a while now if I recall correctly.

    Not for long, MGM resorts will start to charge for parking in short time at all strip casinos.

    The glory days in Vegas have been phasing out for years, so many states have found various ways to allow land casinos in exchange for a share of the cash to fund various things, so revenues from US residents have been declining there for years. I haven't been in quite a while, but the last time I was there I generally had to go to less prominent casinos to find Video Poker machines that had 'traditional' payout tables. I suspect US-based online gaming may proceed as slowly as the lotteries did if not more so. Our states always want a piece of the pie to offset declining economic conditions and wages that are not rising to keep pace with stagnant wages without raising their own taxes.

    It's similar to their struggle to try to collect state sales tax on interstate internet purchases. To a certain extent it's difficult to refute the logic, as taxes in the US are generally lower than many other countries, and they want to try to maintain status quo to keep everyone thinking everything is nifty.

    To paraphrase what someone said earlier in the thread, yes, I believe it's all about politics and money. I won't even discuss US politics anymore, I can't do a thing about it so I refuse to let it frustrate me.
