    In the old days I could order one at the table and the Pit Boss would sign for it like when I get Cigars and smokes.

    The last time I got one they Had me sign a comp slip for the shot of Louis XIII.

    So is that how it is now? I have to have it taken off my Comps for a shot of Cognac?

    I have never got Louis, but I know XO is free in the HL room with no comp slips.

    The Cal will comp Christian Bros brandy.

    Sorry, I think I'm in the wrong thread (although Louis XIII is on my bucket list).

    I do get really great cigars and Btls of Veuve Clicquot or Taittinger Champ when I ask for it as I stand at the Craps table. The Floor Sup writes up a comp slip. (Not on my account) When I play Friday I will see what happens when I ask for Louis VIII at the table. Should be NO PROBLEM at all for Nate.

    Nate you should just drink it. It does not age in the Bottle.

    I know RiddickBull on the XO. The last trip a guy asked for Johnny Walker and when he said BLUE they wanted a comp slip.

    I usually just get the XO now.

    We will need to meet in Vegas soon.

    Used to get louis comped. Yes it requires a comp slip but it is not taken out of your acct. once, my uncle ordered a group of us louis when the host asked what we wanted to drink. He took it as a shot and the host had a heart attack.

    Keep the bottles as they are worth good money since they are baccarat crystal.

    But for the money or to not have a problem to get a drink, I prefer remy xo.

    To be honest with you I cant tell much of a difference between Remy XO and Louis Xiii yes it is better but not 16X the price better.

    and I can always get Remy XO or Hennessy XO for free without signing for it, but they want you to sign for Johnny Walker Blue??? Makes no sense to me.

    No one really buys the empty bottles The only real offers i get is $80 for the empty bottles. But you are right it is Baccarat Crystal.

    Thats why i was saying for the money, xo is better. You can even ask for a double without a blink of an eye.

    The empty bottles of louis in the early 2000's used to sell for between 200-400. Not sure about now.

    On my last trip while at the Hooters casino I was given as many free full bottles of corona as I wanted, each one with a rare sub-tropical fruit wedge in it (I believe they called it a "lime"). No comp slips. So yeah, I totally know where you guys are coming from here.

    I see you started out good in craps. I just can't play craps in Vegas with 345. Odds. I'm use to 100x odds in Shreveport.

    Had I known you and Nate was going. I would have came but made plans for Lake Tahoe already.

    I know Nate can get any drink. But did they make you sign for the Louis XIII?

    Nate posted you did good in craps. Keep it up. Win some cash.
