Ahh. It's going to be different everywhere. Where I live, free drinks in casinos don't exist. You have to pay for it.

Everyone who is saying it varies is correct.

There are some jurisdictions that literally CANNOT give complimentary alcoholic beverages, of which the entire State of Ohio is one example. I don't know if there are others, but that's at least one.

In other jurisdictions where they can, it MAY vary from casino to casino and be based on competition, bet amounts, etc. One casino in WV does it if you have their highest card level OR are playing in the high-limit room. Another casino in WV is such that you print vouchers and I don't know what bearing the cards have on it.

There's a casino in PA that will do free cheap beer and well drinks for basically anyone playing, though that was not always the case. Another casino in PA will give you almost anything you want, but it's provided that you are actively playing in the high limit room or betting an average bet on tables that I do not specifically know. Anywhere else on the floor, you have to pay. That casino is within thirty miles of the one that does free beer and well drinks.

Las Vegas is free anywhere on main casino floors for any casino that I've ever heard of, which is presumably due to significant competition. Same thing for Atlantic City. The bartops at various casinos may do things differently.

The long and short is everywhere is different and if you want information for a specific casino, then you should call and ask...and maybe you'll even get the right answer!

When you are on a winning streak, a pit boss comes and offers you a drink, because they donít want you to leave now! I have never seen a drink offered to the player having just depleted his/her bankroll... 😄

In small casinos, there is no rule but the whim of the pit boss and whether he/she knows you well.

In playing for over five years at my local Indian casino, I have never seen complimentary drinks offered to any player ever.

And you probably never will.

Different casinos and different jurisdictions have different rules and policies. Someone giving you the formula on how they do it in Law Vegas doesn't help you in SA. Most casinos in America offer.free drinks to patrons.



Most??? Hahaha

I would assume free non alcoholic drinks.

That's correct, but I assumed that's not what OP asked or Bill was referring to. But maybe I'm wrong as I like alcohol. Lol If free alcohol existed in the Midwest, I would have never bothered going to Tunica.

Both Michigan and California cannot offer free drinks to players. I am not sure of other jurisdictions.
