Changing coins for notes

Over the last couple of years I have accumulated bags and bags of change. Does anyone know which hotel, if any, on the strip would change the coins into notes...even though I am not staying at their hotel. Do the hotels still have change counting machines?

Thanks

Any casino cage should be able to do this for you.

In the US you'd say "bills" rather than "notes"... :-)

American coin???

Are you carrying the bags and bags of coins onto the plane?

Why cant you turn the coin into biils where you come from?

Most strip hotels have removed their counting machines as they are all TITO. I can't really say where you can get them counted as it's probably not cost effective for them to do it for you anymore. There are some hotels downtown that still have coin slots and they may still offer coin counting.

The Gold Coast is one of the few remaining that may be able to assist. I was staying at the Rio about 18 months ago and they could not assist. I crossed the street to the Gold Coast and they poured my entire container into the changer and cashed me out. They did ask to see my players card. I'm sure there is another casino out there also, I'm just not sure which one.

When I was at Fitzgerald's a couple weeks ago (they have some coin slots), they wouldn't accept pennies or dimes at the cage. They have coin counters. Of course you get pennies and dimes when you cash your TITO"s. I didn't remember that from my previous trips and she sure let me know, so I even had to leave the cage and take them out. It probably wouldn't be a good idea to take bags of change. Hopefully you can cash them in at your local bank.

Apologies for the incorrect information in my earlier post. What I presumed to be right is obviously very wrong and I stand corrected.

I can remember flying to and from London and the flight attendants collecting coins for some charity. Do you really have bags and bags worth?

Some supermarkets by me have change counting machines, but you give up a small 'service fee" percentage. Our bank also does it but only if you're a customer.

Blagger, we've cashed in maybe $3-5 dollars worth of change at a time before we leave (and I recall one cashier being pissed about that, wish I could remember the circumstance, it was very strange), can't imagine how you'd get piles of coins without cashing them in for bills as you go along.

TITO = Ticket In Ticket Out. The cashless system now used by virtually all Vegas slots for paying winnings and being able to use the ticket as credit in other machines in the casino.
