The free food areas in Las Vegas High Limit rooms are "invitation only" or require a high-level players card. Drinks in free food areas are free even when not gambling (up to certain limits, used to be $35 at Caesars & $25 at Bellagio). I like fresh watermelon juice, carrot juice, etc... (which are usually unavailable on the main floor).

In some countries, complimentary food is available for everyone, but the US usually restricts it to high-level players.


I snuck a brownie or cookie from the HLR at Cosmo once (the new one, not the old one). Ah yeah, son! That's living the AP lifestyle.

Meadows has that tier area. There is somebody sitting there asking for cards that always irritates me. I've asked by email and was told you don't need a higher card to walk back there and play slots, only to eat the snacks and drinks. I walked past the lady ignoring her and she got all moody whining, " your card? Your card sir? Your card?" People in that room believe the machines are only for them, even though it's not true.

It's not a HL area though.

I wonder whether there are ever exceptions to the public access rule?

For example, if a whale the size of Kerry Packer (R.I.P.) insists on privacy or he won't play: can that be accomodated?

If so, how (without running afoul of the rule)?



There must be exceptions because many years ago when the Bellagio was new, I had a friend that was the host for Tiger Woods and Charles Barkley. He took me into a high limit area and there they were playing blackjack. They were in a private room and nobody else was at their table. I remember my friend telling me on of their average bets was about $7,000 a hand and the other was a few thousand. I don't remember which was which though.

Incidently, as we were leaving the high limit room to go to dinner, Troy Aikman was out on the main floor playing blackjack amongst the peasants. $25 table I believe.

One of the best conditions in Australian casinos, main floor or the VIP area, is the No Smoking rule.




This part is not quite true. While the main floor will be non-smoking, private high limit rooms will be exempt. In fact they will be the only indoor areas in the country where smoking is permitted.

Yes, high limit private gaming rooms are exempt from the No Smoking laws but I was speaking generally as most people will never see the inside of them. There are also designated smoking areas within the casino but my point was that the general public can gamble in a smoke free environment if they wish.

To make that a true AP move, you need to sell the brownie.

The key is to look like you know what you are doing. Any person confident and not looking like a hobo can easily score a cookie, or even better a muffin. If questioned play dumb and say you are looking for the Book & Stage Bar and Thank them for having snacks out for everyone.

Or if your really bold ask them why you can't vulture the UX machines there anymore.

Don't remember if they had muffins. Not a huge fan, but it depends. But that's what I did -- strutted in there all confident-like, grabbed a cookie like I knew what I was doing and belonged there. Surprisingly, I think I was with djatc and he was being too much of a girl to take a cookie. That was shocking.
