    SpiderMan: Question for Parker/Don

    If u have already deposited front $ or established credit in Casino A, for example, can u pull your $ out in Casino B?

    > Is this true? And how much is too much?

    I can't really answer that. Times have changed. The law states that you may carry unlimited funds in the U.S. But the Patriot Act probably supersedes anything that came before. So now, if they stop you, you'll have to explain what you're doing with all the money. It would probably help to have tickets to or from Las Vegas! :-)

    The sensitivity on the walk through barriers is adjustable, I guess it is only reasonable to assume the same for the wands.
