    Hello fellow Vegas lovers,

    What are the requirements for comp drinks in the casino , do you have to just put money in spin a few times and hope for a cocktail waitress to come ?
    Or do you need to spend a certain ammount of money before you "deserve" your comp drink ? How does this work !:thumbsup:

    For bartop VP, most places will want you to put at least $10 in to start, and they sometimes will want to see you play max bet for quarters, which is $1.25 per hand.

    On the floor, as long as you're playing they will bring you drinks. Doesn't matter how much you start with or how much you're playing per spin. As you mentioned though, you may wait awhile for a CW to take your order.

    its easy kev
    if you are gambling..is it on the tables or on the slots a waitress will come by and will ask you for a drink (normally and if you aint scrooge than you tip her a dollar for her services...its not mandatory but 95% of the people do that) some casinos the cocktailservice is great and the waitresses are working very hard in other casinos it can be less(my friend who was staying at Monte Carlo was pissed one time and we went to ballys where service was much better) and they come every 15 minutes to your table to ask(sometimes this can be also a bit annoying ..most of the time i dont drink and gamble (not even water) and i have to say no im fine).....so waitress doesnt check how much you are gambling on slots if you are on a slot and have a few bucks in it and you are gambling you are fine
    if you are gambling on table its even less of a problem if it takes too long than just ask dealer/pitboss for cocktailservice if you are thirsty..sometimes during a shiftchange it can take a bit longer but if it takes too long pittboss will call waitress for you so in vegas u dont have to worry for free drinks when gambling!!!!

    From our experience as long as you are sitting at a slot machine and have your card in the machine you will get a free drink.
    They were even giving free drinks to my wife if she was just watching me play or vise versa.
    I always tip at least $1 every time and more is she brought one for each of us.
    If you are setting up to play for a bit and drinking I always take one of their waters every couple of rounds, it looks good and probably doesn't hurt either.

    We do this with my fiancee as well, we always play the same machine together. Only once I've been asked if we could both play which I refused by still got the drinks.
