Has this come to any vegas casino yet?
here is a demo
Don't think so. Have used these in the Indiana Horseshoe casinos. They are pretty cool!
I haven't seen that in Las Vegas yet.
Call me old-school, but I wouldn't like it. One of the nicest sounds in the casino is the purr of the CW as she glides past the rows of slots, "Cocktaaaaails?"
To replace that with a button on a machine may be "progress," but not in a good direction, if you ask me.
I am thinking though it might be better service, but than again I guess if you tip well you usually don't have trouble getting service
We went to new Orleans a couple of years ago and they have that in the casinos It's great much better service. Very fast and if you are playing with your card they remember your preferences. Love the computer age
DaveNJ2006 - I'm with you !! No more hearing the plunk-plunk-plunk of the silver dollars hitting the bucket on the slot machines, and if they eliminate the sound of as you say "Cocktaaaaails" then it's just gonna be like if they tear down the Sands, Stardust, Westward HO, Desert Inn, etc.
Oh wait, the did already tear all those down didn't they? I guess I'm just getting to old !!

Are the drinks still free if you use this service (of course tip the waitress)?
I'd be ok with it. I guess I don't find the "cocktails" cry so magical that I wouldn't prefer ordering one when I was ready. For me the timing is often off. The CW comes around for orders when I'm ready to roam, but when I'm settled in, I can go 45 minutes without seeing or hearing one.
This seems like it might become a way to monitor what drinks people can order. The higher tiers would have more choices in call and premium spirits.
