I play VP exclusively. I am a rec player and not a AP player. So I have good days/sessions and bad ones. Occasionally I hit 4 A's or a RF for a dollar. That's a hand pay. As you know whenever you hit a jackpot there will be 2 or 3 attendants at the machine within a minute. All extremely friendly and buddy-buddy. I always get a check instead of cash on hand pay. Why! The machines will not accept checks and the check goes out the door with me when I finish. What I notice as soon as I say "Check Please" all the friendly/buddy-buddy talk stops. Recently I told the attendant "check please" and she come back with cash. I told her no cash-"check please". She got down right rude saying I did not tell her check! No if, ands, or buts---I had told her check. So she huffs off and come back with check and never says a word-nothing. Just hands me check and leaves. I am not a cheap scape and I tip without a problem when appropriate and without any reservations I tip appropriately. My problem is if I put a $1000 in a VP machine and get zip I don't expect anyone to give it back or make it up to me. Why should I give one or more attendants $$$$$ to bring me my money if I have a good hit. How many do I tip? There is always 2 and sometimes 3 attendants show up. I am suppose to tip them all? Tip them for what? What have they done for me? Where were they when I was getting my clock cleaned the last time I played VP. Tip them to bring me my money? Hell! I will go get it. Sorry, I just don't get it that "they" are performing a service to bring me my money...it does not take 2 or 3 attendants to "get" my money? Now! For your side of the story!
