The last time I was in AC,I found myself a slot machine and was doing ok for about 5 minutes. The waitress came by and I ordered a drink. Twenty minutes and $40 later I got my "free" drink. This has happened more than once. I'm not complaining about the amount of time it took to get the drink---I know they're busy. I just hate being tied to a machine that's not paying. Sometimes I get up and sort of hang around the machine but then people think you're loitering.
Anyway, next time I'm thinking of just buying a drink at the bar and getting it in a plastic cup. All in all, I think it might be cheaper.LOL
