free drinks while gambling

I know that you get free drinks while gambling, but after reading so many posts on here lately, I have been intrigued by the types of drinks people have mentioned ordering. Are flavored martinis, champagne, and pina coladas actually free? (Don't worry: I know all about tipping). I usually just order a rum and coke or beer, but would love a glass of champagne if that is actually an option.

That is an option. Just ask and if they don't have it, they'll let you know.

Don't be afraid to ask, but always have your regular stand-by order ready to go.

Long conversations with the CW can make both her and other thirsty customers a little testy. This includes the famous, "What do you have?", or "What kind of beers do you have?" questions.

Pretty much everyplace has champagne. Thought the quality of drink and glass varies widely. IIRC, the Bellagio served half-way decent bubbly (I wouldn't exactly call it good) it a fancy flute with a strawberry. Very classy. At other casinos, you may get flat swill in a jelly-jar.

Most will have some type of sparkling wine at least. The better the casino, the better quality of the drinks.

I think it was Cocktail Doll who discussed the bad karma that follows people who make the CW reel off a long list of beers, only to order a Bud Light (they have that, no need to ask.)

My wife likes bubbly, too. The only place she wasn't able to get it was California downtown. Even then the CW was apologetic and later came by with lost screwdrivers (their orderers were really the ones who were lost) and offered those.

Yes. You can order pretty much anything. If they have it so can you!

Had great champagne at Paris. Enjoy!

I don't quite get the 'free drinks' in the casinos. Do you ask for a drink and give the girls $1 there and then, or do you give them the £1 tip when the drinks arrive? Do you just assume the drinks are free? THis is all new to me.

You tip when the drink is delivered.
