    Was playing paigow green chips for about 4 hours on monday and ordering bottled water Voss no problem at RIO, then I moved over to Blackjack and was playing black chip for a couple hours at double deck and denied comped voss water and only given aquafina because voss is for diamond and higher and platinum players couldn't get it. When did cet or rio at least start limiting drinks based on your tier and not your bet?

    me too, its in the plastic bottles at the casinos but only if you are diamond or seven star. your bet doesn't matter. kind of like when I play in a high limit room and drink fiji and am betting 50 a hand but go bet 100 a hand in the pit and can't get it. its not like it is a really expensive scotch or cognac, its bottled water.

    It has to be some sort of contractual thing.

    It seems like casinos are chincy with the bottles water like it must cost them a lot more to get it from their suppliers. Dont know why that is but they all seem to be like that. Like its some rare commodity.

    Same with emails for some odd reason. They act like it costs them money to email you a confirmation number or its really hard for them to figure out.

    eww in plastic it's no better than Fiji or any of the others. still better than the Dasani/Aquafina sewer-water, but the glass bottles is the best!

    Man, half the time I forget to grab a bottle for the room at the end of the night and wake up parched at 8am. So I grab an empty cup and fill it up a few times with......TAP WATER, OH THE HORRORS!! I mean, it's not Africa, or even Mexico.... :rolleyes2:

    I've heard of beer and wine snobs before, never water snobs though.... :poke:

    In AC some of the casinos have the Total Touch system for ordering drinks right from the machines. I think the same thing happens because my gf was with me while I was ordering a drink and I had my diamond card inserted, she said I had a lot more drink options on the screen than she would get when ordering, she's a Gold card. Since she keeps a copy of my diamond card I told her to just use that for drinks instead.

    They serve Voss in the glass bottles in HL at Caesars Palace, and they don't ask what color card you have. Too bad they don't pour any decent wine...
