Gaming poolside, free drinks?

    So I'll ask in general...but most interested in the Flamingo.

    I have noticed that they have gaming tables in the pool area. Do you get free drinks if you play casino games by the pool?

    Those poolside tables always have limited gaming options
    With horrible rules/odds.

    Used to see a craps table by encore pool. I don't even see that anymore.

    Given pool prices for alcohol that I've seen, min betting 6:5 BJ would probably be a cheaper move if the drinks came fast enough. But I have never tried gambling at the pool so I dunno if the drinks are still comped there.

    I have played blackjack at the Flamingo pool multiple times, and every time I have received free drinks. The cw kept them coming quickly too. Sometimes it can be difficult to get on a table as they seem to be busy most of the time. (Last time playing there was about a year ago)

    Ditto to that statement. I also play every time I'm at the Caesar's pool complex. Always have free drinks, drinks come very quick. As the first poster said, worst odds on all games. BJ for instance had 6/5 BJ only DD on 10/11. Dealer hits on S17.

    Is $10 the min bet? Then this is a better deal if you are downing more than one drink per hour and know basic strategy (which is a lot easier with the D10/11 rule). It's about a push at 2 drinks per hour though.

    Even with those bad rules, the house edge is 2.2%, or a little over $13 loss per hour at $10 bets (60 hands/hr).

    Are like any other casino games. The house benefits by supplying free booze but most casinos make those tables 6:5.
