In other words, the minimum to live the dream would be $0. You do not need a dime to start. But obviously unless you wish to be homeless I'd recommend enough to rent a place, as well as for food and bankroll. The bankroll required for my Holy Grail system is only $150 to start. 

I have never lost in the long term with it. It works consistently, so the problem with most people out here is that they don't know how to play or win. That is why it costs them so much. Las Vegas is actually one of the cheaper places to live in the country, so if you're not a loser, this is a good place to come and live.

That's basically what I said.  Glad to hear you have a system that works for you.  I hope you saw the advice of keeping it to yourself...  I will be out there at the end of the month and am getting pumped!!

Hope all is well, Slim, as I have enjoyed the thread.

For everyone saying he should "get a job" - unemployment in Vegas is sky high.

Living the dream making $100 a day?  Totaling 36k a year?  That's laughable.  36k will cover your expenses but that's as far as it goes. You're still running the rat race like any other joe, except you'll be stressed, and i mean stressed the darn out.  Sleepless nights, days without eating.  Reconsider until you have a better plan/money to blow.  You can thank me for keeping your health and sanity.

I used to think it was living the dream to go to Vegas and live on sports winnings. Unless you hate where your living now, living the dream can be from wherever you are with the stability of friends and family. With offshore you can do that.

Someone once said sports betting is a hard way to make a Easy living.

This rings true to me.

How can anyone honestly say that making 36k is living the dream!? Are you kidding me?

Not even close. To think that is "the dream" is delusional.

I think you guys are caught up on the $100/day.  The idea of the guy was to make a living gambling.  That might be $100/day for him or whatever.

And as a golfer if I join a club where I can golf everyday with buddies and make $100 in 30 minutes at the tables and chill out with friends at night.  I'd take it.

One mans dream is another man's nightmare.

You negative pricks  :)  Just kidding.

@LabbyKing,
Spot-on!  One man's meat is another man's poison.  
If you're living flying free and can sustain it, then you're not in the rat race so your cash flow may be lower than the Wall Street Bankster but you're happier than him because you're privileged to be enjoying a higher Quality Of Life, and not trapped into monetary comparisons against the the next guy in order to con yourself into believing that you're not trapped - when you're just too frightened and/or lazy to change for your betterment.  Such folks die with oodles of things they cling to which their survivors are stuck unloading after their demise.

@ezpz,
Also correcto: If I hadn't plenty of family members born & raised here in Lost Wages to go along with 'Beard jobs' then I don't think it would ever warm-up cozy enough to like it here, and instead just show itself as the Kitsch Palatial Pomposity it really is. Reno & Lake Tahoe are more preferable by far.   Some of the Sharps, managers and ticket-writers I know use Offshores to either not move lines, be at work and yet place wagers and not loose their jobs, or some combo of the aforesaid.

But Billy Walters shows sports investing is not so much a "hard" way as it is an involved way to make an Easy Living.

Why wouldn't you just get a sports bookie in whatever town you live. And you can play poker for a couple hundred bucks legally in possibly every state in the US. I don't understand this thread. Las Vegas is such a garbage-behind place. Please explain more...

Or for that matter, if you need a book i'll just take your bets and we can settle up via paypal. And find somewhere to play poker. Pls explain

perhaps you're just trying to escape buffalo, and i can empathize with that. But I don't understand why living in las vegas is the dream. Honestly it's like bud, man. Gambling will eventually be legal by code or de facto legal in most major cities, then suburbs.... etc. How are you going to feel when you live in the middle of the desert when you find out that sand is now available everywhere.

Good point. Can you hold this 100k for me. I will tell you when to bet. Oh yeah call me the second the openers come out. Check all places. Dont front run please. Call me as soon as a number changes to my bet zone. Full time for a small fee? how many limit bets can one person place?

I am sure not for 100k up front. Some people do this in Vegas. For how much and how they run it I do not know. Their called runners. They take a fee or a percentage. Would add to the juice I would think. They do it though. maybe transfers on bank accounts, paypal...probably how they move the money..

las vegas is a shithole.

 

the only reason you would need to live there to gamble is if you are betting 10's of thousand of dollars where you would always be able to find someonew to take your action.

 

much, much better places to live in the world than a 100 degree dustbowl in the middle of the desert.

Imperial is right in the middle of the Strip, so decent location. It isn't fancy by any means, so you're getting what you pay for. If you want a cheap Strip location, just stay at Casino Royale.

Super 8 on Koval does have the advantage of being located right next to Ellis Island Casino & Microbrewery. Ellis Island is still home to the best deal in Vegas, the $6.99 steak dinner. If you want to cut down on your food expenses, eating there several times during the week will do it, so I would recommend staying there. It is a Super 8, though, so you know what you're getting as far as residence.

Dude you are not gonna get a true Vegas experiece staying off strip at a cheap motel. You can stay ar Harrahs for a pretty decent price and its dead center to all the other great sportsbooks. Its probably only $20/day more than the other places you are talking about but so much nicer and convenient. You will regret staying off strip. Just go on vegas.com for good rates, if you book it last minute you can get some really good deals because they are trying to fill rooms.

Not quite...But thanks for caring. 

Here's the update as honestly as I can provide. 

I decided I am going to try to live off 10K per year.

My monthly Nut is about $1320 per month

Broken down.
$130 - condo association
$80 - car insurance
$80- TV
$100 Electric
$400-F00d
$435- insurance policy
$100- Gas (car)

I Started 10/01 with 10k

I now have $8500 - due to a 1K bet on a ginger tonight. New rule, never make a large play on a Ginger. (No disrespect) some of my best friends are gingers....

Back on track tomorrow...Maybe tail MGM...who knows....

and as far as a dream?....all I know is this...If waking up every day in Williamsville NY is your life, (high property taxes< traffic, garbage food, miserable, local type people, garbage weather, getting sandbagged by your bookmaker, having your girl balk at a blow-job request, ect ect) Then that's a nightmare my man. 

Here,= no traffic, good food, cool people, window bets, plenty of women, small property taxes and no snow and a cool condo,....

to me thats a friggin dream come true......

My daily schedule..

11am - wake
11-12 decide what plays to make - which casinos to visit..
12-3  Make plays - off to gym - 2 hr workout, ending with wet steam.
4-7 off to casino to for a meal and possible a date..(have about 3 on the line now)
7-whenever - watch games, drink and darn....

I guess I've seen to many people live garbage lives and wind up dying anyway. 

PS - If your living a garbage life in a garbage place and you think your doing it for the greater good.....well,... I am sure you know different.

Slim,

Alot of what you said doesnt add up. Stop kidding yourself. Eating ata casino daily? $1.00 hotdogs? Certainly not restaurants or food courts. That would be over 10k a year itself. Get up at 11 and decide plays by noon? If you really have a car, youll be living in it soon with your attitude and work ethic.
 
Funny your girl balks at blowjobs and you complain, yet you blow the gaming industry daily and even swallow. You go gagger.

Also your breakdown didnt even include rent, just the common fees. Thats at least another $8k a year. I think your soon to be homeless.

Maybe you can move in with promark and play penny slots. Just be a better tipper. You guys can even blow each other to save a few dollars.

Forget about the dream.  The dream turns into a nightmare.  I have been living the "dream" for the past fifty years. 

I am playing 2- 5 no limit at the Mohegan Sun the other day.  The

bozo makes it 45 to go under the gun.  I have KK and make it

a hundred more.  The bozo moves all in for about 200 more, I

call.  The bozo has JJ.  Three blanks then a jack explodes out of the deck.  Bozo wins.  Some dream.

Let me clarify...

No "rent" was in the breakdown because I own my condo free and clear. 

I have plenty more then 10k.. I am just seeing if I can stretch 10k for a year. I know that 10k alone will not last a year, I am planning on winning enough to cover the spread.

I forgot you were the chosen one when it came to sports gambling. 
I didn't know you know all. Making sweeping generalizations about what will work and what won't work just confirms the tool you are. 

If I took advise from morons like yourself, I would be hating life like it seems you do....

where you from harry? 

How old are you?

Newyork- Ginger=Redhead? I use to pay rent by handicapping in Vegas and it was a different time but whenever the first line was hung I wanted to be there. Usually that was Stardust lottery and I was back to bed by 10:30AM. Now I think it's several places doing overnights and that 7PM-whenever is time to setting up tomorrows plays . Forgive me , I never want to tell someone how/what to bet but are you serious?
