So a $20 tip per $5,000 win with a $200 limit at $50K?
I could make it $5 per $1,000 if my calculating isn't working.
If I expect my tip to come from my Players Card points balance, I should tip $5 per $3,000.

  • Interesting idea to mention the slot club rate.
    If they value my action at $0.01 per $10, that's a $1000 tip on $1000000.
    If they value my action at $0.01 per $25, that's $400.
    May the cards fall in your favor.

    I'm not really suggesting anyone tipp or not tip anymore than they want to.

    With that being said, I do think AP's should tipp, it's better for all AP's both in the short term and the long run.



    If you wan't to be precived as a fair tipper $20 on 5k is too low, espesilly if its some rare lucky hit. I would say at least $40-$75 that goes for both AP's and the avrage person. I don't have some exact forumla, I just assess the situation at the time and try to balance keeping as much money in my poket as i can, while making them just happy enough. A large part of that depends on what kind of advantage and what the odds are of hitting the jackpot. If its somthing that rarly comes up and you, it's not really going to eat into your profit all that much.

    The guys in my crew all tipp fairly well compaired to many others.

    Obviously, if you are playing a higher limit game where the jackpots are frequent... then all bets are off. If I'm in that situation, I give them a little somthing upfront and let them know ill take care of them more at the end based on how well I do.

    I they are aware of the situation and don't think they expect it. There are going to be some people who don't really realize just how much money one is jamming on the machines, they just see someone hitting a ton of jackpots and think you must be doing really well.

    Tipping on a slot/video poker machine is different than with a dealer.

    I’m not even sure how the procedure works. I can’t imagine they just hand you a million dollars while you’re sitting at the machine. So you’re probably giving whatever you have in your wallet.

    At the table, it’s definitely easier to ask for chips out of your jackpot. Or they are giving you all chips and it’s easy to just give a high denom chip to a dealer.

    That being said… Probably $500-$1000 on a machine. Around $2000 to a dealer.

    On a slot win the tip should be $0.

    You tip a dealer because they are paid the "waitress minimum" and are doing some actual service. A slot attendant is neither, to tip them is to tip the bank teller.

    Vital Vegas is chastising a player for tipping $200 on a $1 million win.

    For those who believe in tipping, how much do you think is appropriate to tip on a $1M win?

    (If you don't believe in tipping, this thread is not for you. The rest of us are already painfully aware that many of you don't believe in tipping.)

    Responses so far:
    • $200
    • $1000
    • $2000
    • $5000
    • $5000 - $20,000

  • link to original post

    I ask for check with fed taxes taken out (28%?).
    So we're down to $720k.

    Slot attendant will see the $720k number and will now no longer expect a tip based on $1M.
    1% of that is $700.

    Or if I have less than $700 left, then whatever that amount is and explain that's all the cash I have left.

    Edit:
    Or whatever cash is left in the machine.
    Ie: give the tip as a slot ticket

    Yeah I like the slot ticket tip the best , if over $200 but below $700.

    If total of slot ticket and cash on me is under$200, then give both and explain that's all I have on me.
    And show empty wallet


    Edit2:
    The person who wrote the vital vegas article sounds like a tipping apologist and an idiot.

    In addition to tipping the dealer on the big win:

    "Bathroom attendants, valets, security guards and
    cage cashiers all contributed to your unforgettable night, feel free to lavish them with cash as you see fit."

    What a moron.
    And if he was being sarcastic, then he sucks as a writer

    in my state, poker dealers get less than fed minimum but I think regular table dealers gets more than the fed minimum pay.

    Also, in poker, I tip $1 with every pot won. (I play the minimum stakes)
    With table games (ie: craps), I only tip if I'm up at the end of the session.

    Also, in one of my casinos, the slot attendant doesn't even wait for me to tip them.
    They hand me the cash/check then immediately leave.

    At another casino (mgm), if the amount won was $1620, they would bring me 15 one hundred dollar bills and 6 twenties.

    So the greedy slot attendant not so subtly wants at least $40 tip.
    Whenever they do that, I tip $0!

    whoops.
    Then I'll give whatever's left on the slot ticket as tip if it's under $7200.
    If it's less than $700, then add enough cash to make it $700

    Last I heard in my state most dealers get the waitress minimum with a few getting $0.50 to $1 more.

    I tip poker per won pot, as do most players since the dealers both rotate and go for their own. I tip BJ dealers by getting some whites and playing for them at irregular intervals, just when I feel like it.

    That is just smart. When I was in craps school they told us about making sure players had enough whites and reds to throw a toke. I did not need it explained, but some people I guess did. A few of the class had been waitresses and knew to do this right off. Some it was an "aha!" moment. Yeah, if you can possibly get a tip you do this.
