Free Drinks

Just wondering if anything goes when choosing free drinks whilst gambling at the casinos? Been before but can only recall asking for bottles of beer. Its 10 years later and my drink of the moment is tequilla and red bull or a nice margarita or other cocktail!

Whats the etiquette? Obviously I know to tip the waiter/waitress well! Cheers, very much looking forward to my week staying at the MGM in August.

Tequila and Red Bull is an acceptable drink to order. Mixed drinks also. The only thing they really question is ordering top shelf liquor (single malt high end scotchs, top shelf vodka, tequila, etc.) but you can always ask the waitress for a specific brand (Cuervo, Don Julio, Patron, etc.) and see what they say.

I order what i feel like, if it's not acceptable they will say something (I've never had that happen though). You are right.... just be sure to tip and happy drinking!

The only drink I've ever asked for that they would not bring is a Mojito. That was in March, at Flamingo. Other than that, I've always been able to get any mixed drink I wanted. Have fun!

Order whatever you want, if they can bring it they will, if not, they will offer alternatives. It's not that hard people.

Also depends on the level casino. Like Casino Royale (as far as the free ones) only serves beer in small glasses. But your higher end places will have more and better options. We were at one downtown casino one night and my wife asked for a merlot, and the cw looked at her like she had a horn growing out of her head. The cw said we got "red or white", had a good laugh when she walked away. I told my wife to get ready for some gooood box wine.

Tequila and Red Bull? Stimulant plus stimulant, you'll be boinging around the casino like a road runner...

You can order something other than a tall Long Island Ice Tea?

I was playing VP and asked the Bartender for something tall, cold and full of gin.

So he sent his wife over.
