    I've been to the bellagio sports book a few times. Each time I place a few minimal $20 bets and the cocktail waitresses bring me free dinks every 15-20min or so for as long as I'm sitting there. I tip $1 a drink. Is this standard practice there? I haven't been for a big event, so is it just good timing? Have I had awesome waitresses? Haha should I expect the same treatment when I return for a mid week trip in late August??
    Thx

    The CW service at Bellagio sportsbook is usually pretty good, 15-20 min sounds about right. A $1 tip per drink is standard.

    I think they now require a drink ticket though. And a $20 bet might not be enough to get a drink ticket.

    Not sure if they are doing drink tickets now, but if they are and if they are in line with other higher end MGM properties, it will definitely take more than a $20 bet to get a ticket

    I am 100%, bellagio changed their regulations. They used to not require a bet slip which what made them popular. Since after the super bowl, they now require drink tix for drinks from the ticket writer.

    They have a great sports book, but they have changed their drink rules.

    I was just there last weekend, and the guy said I needed $120 (might have been 125) in bets for a drink ticket.

    At worst it was a place to sit and drink and watch sports paying for drinks (tipping) like at the tables......it was great to make about an 8 or 10 teamer for 5 $ and see if you became a millionaire....or maybe 500 $.....but it was like placing a bet at the tables and then watching all the games with comfortable chairs and quick service with a smile......Ok boys, let's settle up on these bets.....

    I was never sure why they kept doing it frankly, and a bet or best of 125 $ to get a drink ticket......seriously, go sit at the bar for a 20$ and play VP for a drink........

    They did go to drink tickets. Personally, I don't find the recliners to be comfortable.

    Just bring your own liquor in a small bottle (and some cokes if you want) and ask the waitress to get you a glass of ice and tip her for it. You'll be drinking for the cost of what you paid at the ABC shop.
