* I really like the idea of being able to use my credit
card in a slot machine, it is as good of idea as when they did away with
coins in slot machines, it just makes it a lot easier to play.

* Using a credit card in a
slot machine might be to easy for me, not sure I have that much will
power to remember when to stop playing. It would be an interesting
challenge and maybe I could use a card with a lower limit to control my
spending. Wayne Vickers SC
* Good question. Personally,
I would avoid it. The mechanism of stopping at an ATM conveniently
located in the casino, and playing until your wallet is empty, would
seem to be the best regulator. Allowing a card reader to suck the money
out of your bank without getting out of your seat is a dream come true
to the casino, which means it is not in the interest of the player.
You need to have your buddy there to hold your seat and offer the wisdom
of not going to the well, to make you think about shaking the money
tree. Again. On the other hand, its only a matter of time before
this machine pays off, and it would be a shame to see someone sit down
there while you are buying more cash, and take your jackpot...
* Right to the point. no way
Jose. I don't even like bringing my credit card with me. but do cause of
the room charge. the cash I bring is my fun money. I don't want to loose
it but if I do I do. bringing a credit or debit card for use is asking
for trouble. lets get even. ever hear of that phrase? bet you have. if
you didn't and this credit card thing happens you soon will.
* Guess it would be okay to insert
credit card in machine. Have a nice day. Margaret Smith
* This would insert an entirely
new meaning into the "lost credit card" problem. Or how many times are
"players cards" left in machines now? What would happen if someone
left a credit card in a machine? We would all pay one way or another.
I love Las Vegas and I love to gamble but this is a problem we do not
^ I like technology and I am all for ease
and convenience, but not sure when I mix alcohol and an easier way of
spending money that the temptations may out way my will power. So
I guess I am not in favor of this type of modern convenience.

* Sure, I like the idea,
anything to speed up the process of feeding bills into a machine and
most of the time they do not accept them on the first try.
