    I think that is fairly common across the industry.

    On my trip to Aria a few weeks ago, the drink tickets were clearly stamped with that day's date on them. When I visited the book the next day they even changed the color of the tickets. (One day was yellow, the other day was pink.)

    That certainly has been true for a while at Bellagio....Dh often gives his extras away at the end of the night at the bar outside the sports book...otherwise they would just go to waste.

    Yep, definitely the norm. I didn't know any place issued drink tickets without a same day expiration date.

    Agreed. Every place I have placed sports bets only issues them for same day use. Not sure what happened on the OP's NYE trip. My guess is that it was an error

    Sports book tickets have been same day use for a long time. I can't comment on Cromwell, but that is the Vegas standard, although I've found them to generally be pretty lenient with them. If you make a bet on Sat and use them on Sunday, I've generally had no trouble using them.

    The worst they can do is tell you no.

    Same way at Boyds. It's a shitty policy.
    I have had to give them a way on several occasions.
    The bartenders are pretty strict about not taking them but sometimes you can go back to the sports book the next day and they will let you trade it for a current one.

    A tip for those who end up giving away lots of tickets: you can cash them in for bottled water to take back to your room to avoid that desert dehydration. Last trip to the Mirage my group ended up with 15 extra tickets and we were all well past the point of wanting any more booze. The bartender smiled when I cashed them in, but he was nice enough to get a garbage bag for me to lug them all up to the room.

    C8D7495B-8FE6-41E1-8D05-F057B144766A.jpeg A simple suggestion for those who have multiple drink tickets with just the day stamped on them. Save them till your next trip which most likely will include that day ...again . When I land in Vegas this Saturday guess which sports book that I’m gonna place my Sunday bets at? And probably get some 3/6 limit in also ?
