The Courier Who Broke the Bank is an achievement and trophy in Fallout: New Vegas.


It is awarded for successfully getting thrown out of all of the casinos on the Strip.


  • The following amounts will need to be obtained from each casino to be banned:
15,000 caps for Ultra-Luxe
10,000 caps for The Tops
9,000 caps for Gomorrah.
  • The Courier will be approached by casino staff every quarter of the total winnings with rewards for being a high-roller.
  • If one saves before playing any casino game and proceeds to net a loss at a game and then tries to load the game and try again, the dealer will take a 60 second break to change the deck as a deterrent to cheating. This 60 second break applies to roulette and slots as well.
  • Though the description mentions being thrown out of the casino, the Courier will only be banned from gambling. Entry and all other casino services will still be available.
  • The Atomic Wrangler, The Vikki & Vance and The Sierra Madre will also ban the Courier once they have won too much, but none of these three affect this achievement/trophy.
  • If the message "You feel lucky" appears when a win occurs, it means that win was influenced directly by the Luck stat of the Courier.
  • If the message "You feel unlucky" appears when a loss occurs, it means that loss was influenced directly by the Luck stat of the Courier.
  • If the Courier kills any of the cashiers from any of the casinos, it may make this achievement/trophy impossible to finish because chips won't be available for purchase from that casino.

Behind the scenesEdit

This may happen when skipping over a rewards point entirely (e.g., through huge slots payouts) or if the staff member gets caught on geometry and the Courier wins enough for the next gift level before they reach them.[verified]

The reason for this is unknown, and the only known workaround is to reload an earlier save of the player character before gambling at any casino.[verified]
