    Placed two bets today for $40 and then cocktail waitress asks me if I want a drink. "Of course" was my reply. She then asks for my drink ticket. I went to the guy I just placed the bets with and he said you need to place a minimum of $100 worth of bets to get a drink ticket! He then handed me a ticket. Better off losing $20 at VP bar for that same drink! My goal is to see if this is a trend Strip-wide? Sorry if I missed this topic already discussed.

    The threshold for drink tickets will vary by property. Many of the books on the strip are looking for $200 wagered to earn a drink ticket.

    Guys betting the ponies often get drink tickets for far fewer than the $100. In my experience, that is about going rate to get a ticket at most places when betting on sports, but I often see guys getting multiple tickets when they're placing multiple horse bets.

    Rio is still pretty liberal about them and the Orleans also.I was there 2 weeks ago.Got 3 or 4 one day at the Rio cashing a ticket,I left the teller the singles after making a couple bets also..Orleans I made some derby bets on Friday and got a few also. Ya gotta ask though.
    I like to give them away to people who walk up to the VP bars and are ready to pay cash.They appreciate it and I tell them just be sure to tip the bartender..
    I am getting comped anyway so I feel I'm getting over the casino and helping some folks out.Win-Win.

    Wynn was 10$ minimum in the horse betting when we were there earlier this year. At least that's what the teller said and handed me a drink coupon. Tipping the teller after a win scored another one.

    bellagio and Aria sportsbook are 1 ticket per $200 wager; on the big 4 sports. Seems like at Cosmo you need to ask the tellar, but similar threshold.
