    Would I get into trouble if I filled up a flask with liquor from my room and made my own drinks in the casinos? From what I read it's pretty hard to get drink service while playing anymore...

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I think it's a pretty common occurance to provide your own drinks. I think most people that do this buy a bottle for the room and mix up a drink there and walk down to the casino with it. If you want to mix your own drinks in the casino I think you'd have to order a glass of ice and/or a mixer (coke, juice) and then you're back in the same boat.

    As the last poster said, where are you going to get the mixer, glass and ice?

    Taking your own drinks just about anywhere in Vegas is no big deal.

    Does your local comp alcohol for gamblers? If not, you would need to be more discreet about the flask.

    In Vegas, no one would care. My sister in law likes expensive red wine, and often brings a bottle of it to the casino floor with her.

    In Vegas I usually have a flask........I will get a drink, request a tall of whatever I am drinking, usually vodka tonic, then augment that casino pour with a shot or two of my own.

    If I know I am just going to sit in the Book and watch an event I have been known to take two beers with me.

    Not really a cheap guy, I just don't like to wait for a CW. I never bother to bring any extra if I know I am going for a session of VP at a bar. I tip well and play fast, so never in want of a drink in that case.

    I am not a problem drinker, I just have a problem not drinking :drunk:

    the casinos at home do not provide free drinks other than coffee and soda. I take with me 2 or 3 of the airline type bottles of tequila, and buy beer from the bar. the bar offers small shots at a large price.

    I know that in my local casinos (Iowa) it's verboten to bring or consume your own alcohol. I know from experience that they will stop you if you enter or leave with any kind of drink, alcoholic or not.

    Of course if you are discreet about it and don't rub anyone's face in the fact that you are doing it ...

    At Orleans there is a sign about outside liquor not be allowed in the casino area for consumption. We bought beer at the liquor store by the escalator and punk n ice in the room. Took one down the elevator and the security guard said to come over for a second. Asks where we got the beer (not a brand served in the casino) and then offered us some solo cups to pour them into. Once completed we were on our way.

    Guard was very accommodating and we thought outside liquor was that purchased off property. I would be cautious at Orleans but not necessarily fearful. The water bottle with liquor sounds less observable than a flask. Good luck!!
     
    Hopefully, finally !!!

    There are some very vague stupid laws about beer bought in places like the gift shop not being allowed on the casino floor. Kind of ironic since when you buy one they ask if you want them to open it. :)

    I have a plastic water bottle that screws apart at the nexk so i can put ice into it. Fill with whiskey and water and all set. used it all over the place and just looks like a water bottle.

    You can also buy those coffee cups with lids and use those although the paper wil eventually get a bit soggy on th ebottom.

    I bring solo's down from my room all the time and they say nothing. One could also do the flask and just get a soda and pour.

    BYOB, but be discreet. Next there will be a bag shakedown when you go in a casino

    Oh my gosh, I feel like SO much less of a degenerate reading this! I don't always like the wine that is served, and I always pack some wine that I like (we have lots of good, affordable wineries around). I often bring a collapsible wine pouch that I keep in my purse. Its also nice to have if its really busy.

    I DO always order something from the waitress (water, diet coke, etc) and tip the same, so it's not taking away from their money.

    I've done this on a few trips and never had a problem. Though I do try to be discrete...but that's more for feeling like someone that looks like they come to Vegas WAY too much :) Cripes. Collapsible wine bag in purse and bankroll coin purse around my neck. Next I'll be carrying around an inflatable seat cushion!

    Now, I havent carried around the whole glass bottle; this made me grin! VMB...where your quirks and degenerate sides don't seem as crazy! :)

    Just to be clear. I have played in even high limit slots, and no drinks. I have even questioned if it was AA, or did the waitress die. BYOB discreet. Have a casino gift shop bag or a murse. Better service and you can drink your drink.

    Yeah most of the time she will just get an extra bottle of whatever Napa cab we were drinking at dinner and bring it right to the table.

    She just keeps it by her feet and pours as needed. Discreetly but not making any effort to hide it.

    I'm not a wine drinker except occasionally with meals, but if I was, I would think that bringing your own would be the way to go. I'd imagine that the house wine can be pretty hit or miss when you know what you like.
