Please advise if Harrah's X bar charges for drinks

I am inquiring whether drinks will be comped while playing max at any bar at Harrah's.

I haven't found an update in almost two years. Thank you.

You are starting to hear more and more about restrictions on free drinks at casino bars with video poker. The best bet it to ask as soon as you sit down about expectations. This saves awkward moments for both you and the bartender. In fact, they seem more than willing to tell you exactly what you need to do to get free drinks.

Thanks Frank3. I already earned my diamond for this year once again. We haven't been to AC in many years. My host offered us free tickets to see the Doowop show on March 13th along with a free room at Harrah's for 2 nights. Transportation on their Luxribus made it a no brainer!

We always play video poker, and prefer to sit at the bar, so this information is valuable to us. Thank you. Good luck everyone.

This past year I had no problems getting the comped drinks during the afternoon/evening at the X bar. I remember a couple of years ago they did stop giving them away later at night on the weekends when the party kids came to go the the pool after dark. We've never had any trouble getting comped drinks at the poker bar over in the one corner.

Not sure abt the X Bar at Harrah's, but in the Eden Lounge, the comp drinks stop once the live "Entertainment" Starts - regardless if you are playing - the X Bar may follow the same rule with a DJ etc. ……..Poker bar comp drinks are 24/7.

Clarification Above …..It is implied of course that the Complimentary drinks apply to patrons actively playing a bar top VP machine !

Are you Diamond or above? I dont believe that info is correct for Diamond and Seven Stars players.

That's what I thought as we have never paid for drinks at either bar.
