    My past couple visits at Vanderpump, they've been lenient on allowing the $20+ drinks.

    Some places will take multiple vouchers (it says it on the voucher -- Bally's and Paris bars).

    I've found that sometimes you can pay the difference if a drink is over $20.

    They're not supposed to do this, but occasionally you'll get someone who'll let you. Just confidently say you'll pay the difference, like you would with the $10 food voucher.

    Only diamond plus and higher tiers get them. Anyone that used to get unlimited free lounge entry, because they're an alleged replacement benefit for that specific thing.

    As to a drink over $20 - I would think putting CASH on the counter with the voucher might help - and then see it go into the tip jar.

    All the promotional kiosks I can think of are somewhat immediately adjacent to the CR desk if they have one at that property, or near the cashier if they have merged them. They print out 4 paper receipts you can turn in. They expire at midnight and you can print 4 each day. They can be used at all the Caesars properties, so it doesnt matter which property you print them. Last time I stayed at a Caesar property, I printed them at Caesars Palace when I got up in the morning and just shoved em in a pocket, then used where ever as I walked the strip

    In July at the Flamingo pool, the server would only accept vouchers that had been received from a kiosk in the Flamingo casino. That was the only time I encountered such a rule.

    It would be nice to see a price list somewhere before you want to order. Does anyone know if they have lists anywhere?

    Let me add:
    if there are 4 drinks per day, why does it matter what the cost is to 7* since Diamond gets 4 also. You have to earn double the tier points. As a 7* why do I have be concerned about price of a mixed drink.

    Many of the options have menus with prices on their website. You can also just ask the bartender if they accept drinks vouchers - they'll let you know what you can/can't get if anything is over the $20 voucher limit.

    TBH though, if you're playing at a machine or most VP bartops, you're already getting free drinks. I found the best use of them personally to be Starbucks or just picking up Gatorades for the fridge before heading back to the room for the night.

    True , you can get drinks while you play. The casino likes that if you're playing VP. I try not to drink much liquor while playing. When you're playing VP
    you can miss hit keys and make stupid mistakes. If I were a casino manager I would urge the waitresses to go by those machines often, especially machines with multiplay and $1 and up minimums. I would tell them no small pours like I've been getting in AC lately.

    My group actually decided we like the vouchers better than the old Diamond lounges - at least for this trip. We were a group of 6 (+1 part of the time) with 2 Diamond +, 2 Diamond and the rest Gold or Platinum. In past similar trips the 2 couples that are Diamond would go to the lounges on occasion but rarely more than once a trip. This trip we would just pick a bar to meet for a drink before dinner and use the 8 vouchers we had available to buy drinks for the whole group. No need to worry about not including someone who wasn't Diamond or having to use RC's to get in to the lounge if you were not Diamond +. So it worked out well for us - I think I used all of my vouchers for 4 days - which is 16 drinks. Don't think I ever had a trip where my wife and I would have 16 drinks in a Diamond lounge - and we did like the Diamond lounges. Didn't get any free snack foods since we are not 7* - but that is not a big deal. Only time I miss that is a couple times on solo trips were I would basically gorge myself in the Diamond lounge and make it a free meal. But I don't do that on any trips with others.

    This coming trip next month I'm going with a friend that doesn't gamble that often, so he he's starting from scratch tier wise. When we had the lounges I could take him in and we could stay however long we wished and get a two or three drinks, our usual. Now we can get two each (my 4). So getting rid of the Lounges is great for CET but not for players, especially 7* who get nothing more than any Diamond +.

    I have a slightly different twist on preferring the vouchers. My wife and I get all the alcoholic drinks comped we want when we play (me = some; her = none). But she likes the complimentary Starbucks drinks we can use with the vouchers. So we actually prefer vouchers over Laurel Lounges. Prior to COVID we rarely went to Laurel Lounges in Vegas which are step child to the nice ones including Seven Stars lounges at Atlantic City.

    I like the Seven Stars Lounge at Caesars AC. You tend to love it when the bartender knows your name. I can't say I was a fan of the Vegas Laurel lounges, but compared to vouchers it get a better rating from me. In Vegas they could have created a point system like they had( haven't been there since 2018)
    where items get points and depending on tier status you would get points to use while in the lounge. I also remember that if you went to a bar outside the lounge you could get free drinks if the bartender knew you took care of him.

    Well, we get the $10 food voucher too. I prefer this system over the LL, for sure.
