It's 5% with a maximum of $4, as they take the rake in $1 increments--at $10, $30, $50, and $80. And you don't have to pay a dollar for any stupid jackpot. So given that all Harrah's properties charge a $5 rake, 10%, with a $1 jackpot drop, the Venetian is by far the best place to play on the Strip.

Wow. That's not bad at all.

Is it the same for $1/$2?

I believe so. And comps were earned at $1/hr last time I asked, but they fiddle with the comp rates quite a bit. I like to use my comps at the Grand Lux Cafe, which is the best casino coffee shop in town IMHO.

No jackpot = goooood. Up here in Washington one of the Tribal casinos now rakes $2 for jackpots (put does pay $100 every half hour to high hand so it's not all bad)

Everyone likes the Fiji water at Venetian for some reason too. I still don't get that.

Fiji is decent bottled water, one of the best.

It's SQUARE water. That's why it comes in that special bottle. All other bottled water is round.
