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


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.

    Smart?!?
    what's wrong with 16 one hundred dollar bills and a single $20?
    I would have tipped the $20 by giving me that logical amount of bills.

    By appearing greedy by giving me 6 twenties to expect at least a $40 tip, she got $0 and not even a thank you from me.
    Hopefully she got the hint not to do that again

    Edit:
    If my win was exactly $1600 and she bought 15 100s and 5 20s, then I would understand. And tipped $20

    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.

    And if a slot attendant is being paied min wage they should be tipped? And if a dealer is being paied more than min they shouldnt be tipped? What if a poker room mannager is sitting in for a dealer should you now not tipp him or tipp less since he mkes mannagment wages?

    Some places it's standard policy that they break one of the bills. Oftentimes, the slot attendant gets the jackpot money from the cashier and its the cashier who autmatiuclly breaks one bill down.

    whats the reason for this being standard policy?

    Incidentally, at that mgm casino, they have bought me the logical amount of bills for other jackpots.
    Ie: $1514

    Probably so you can tip, LOL. Perhaps, to entise gamblers not to walk away who don't notmally put in $100 bills at a time. Some people just want a bill broken. Obviously, they should just ask you how u want it.

    It could be a sincere courtesy.
    Suppose the attendant is getting a $20 tip either way.

    Now you have some smaller bills, in case you don't want to hand the valet a $100 or get change.
    May the cards fall in your favor.

    Would you go in and give the casino restaurant waitress or waiter 1% of $1,000,000 also? Why does the job of slot attendant require it?

    When you hits the millions dollar hands, you tips the fifty large, hey hey!

    I don't know. Easy for me to say, since I'll likely never have to worry about it.

    I think the highest hit I'd ever currently have a ridiculously outside shot at, in theory, is $720,000.

    I think that's presumptuous. It might not be that the slot attendant expected it, but rather that lots of players would *want* to tip more than $20, so they're making it easy. And has been pointed out, it's convenient to have some twenties whether you use them to tip or not. I could easily see myself as the slot attendant, not expecting a $40 tip, but still giving lots of 20's for the above reasons, and not being put off at all if I got tipped only $20.

    Maybe you guys are all loaded, but my life (after taxes and 50k tip) is still going to be changed more by the more than half a million bucks than the 50k tip is going to change the recipient's life.
