    Well that last comment from the bartender makes me think there could be a coin-in requirement as well. A ticket spit out for me after 20 minutes and 20 identity points ($120 coin-in). The 20 point minimum would be understandable (still cheaper than retail). But maybe I also timed out. If 20 points minimum is required per drink though, that's pushing it for me. I'm just happy the beer I bought with the ticket I earned myself was one of the best I had all trip!

    That's the question I had....can a person gather these tickets up and then just go sit somewhere and drink without gambling? Seems like it would go against the purpose of the whole system.

    Where do these tickets get dispensed from anyways?

    They come out where your Tito comes out. The tickets are only good at bars with The game tops. But yes I sat and didn't play for about an hour and had 3 drinks. I also have them away to people randomly walking up. William the bartender didn't say anything. Just took the ticket and the tip the guy have him.

    Hi @TIMSPEED - you may have missed @Sheil813 's mention in her post of TDB, a one line note right after a DDB win pic and just before the first 2k TDB win pics, below:

    I have a feeling this rule will be tightened up before too long.

    Nah, when you're in the casino..luck is all you need!
    (I'm actually surprised Tringlomane didn't catch that...as he likes to catch all the Ace-10 royals...)

    Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Glad the drink tickets were not an issue and the VP was decent.
