I heard that when you are gambling in casinos drinks are free. Is this correct also does that include machines and is it alcohlic drinks.

Yes. Yes. Yes.

CW will deliver drinks for free while you are playing. If you want them to keep coming back tipping is strongly recommended.

Get creative. Order whatever you want. Places differ in what they serve. Higher end places will bring top shelf liquor if you ask.

Hey bella. I was there last year and tipped $5 for the first drink (to keep them coming back) and $2 per drink delivered after that. I have no idea if that is a good or bad amount but it seemed to work (e.g., CW was fine timing wise). I've read about others tipping $1 per drink to $5 per drink so I think anywhere between those amounts seems like usual. Like you though, I'm not sure what I'm doing so just hope I'm not being rude (lol).

Gday

Normally $1 a drink I have noticed most locals tip.. I was playing the pokies with 2 friends and ordering 3 drinks so we gave the CW $3 if we had change and $5 if we didnt have $1 notes..

You can order any drink from beers to spirits I have noticed..

Hope this helps

Aside from alcoholic drinks, you can also order soft drinks and water I'm case you need some sobering up to do. :p

As previously stayed, generally a $1 tip per drink is expected. Higher end properties will have better service and drink quality. So don't expect all places to be the same but do look forward to trying different places.

While a $1 per drink tip is acceptable to many people and will still be gratefully received, that's what was expected when I first visited Vegas in the mid 80s. I personally like to think I've moved on a little since then so tip a minimum of $2.

This site hasn't been updated for a while but is still a good read for the newbie.

I usually have water along with a cocktail, and tip $5. Almost always have great service doing this. Tipping $1 a drink might get you one drink, but the CW will prefer bigger tippers over you.

I tip $3 for two drinks, more if I am winning. One time I tipped a hundred dollar bill. Wasn't winning, just very drunk.

Goldengreeke, that is a fear of mine. The $100 tip because I am not paying attention. On my last trip I kept a seperate pocket just for $1 bills, always tipped from there so have no issue. Unlike you I have an advantage of having a purse to carry it in. At least I think so;) This might be a good travel tip for our foreign visitors who may not be as comfortable with US dollars.
