I don't drink, but I think that, I would be less inclined to tip at all for a drink under these new voucher rules. Why should a person? After all you earned it and the casino says they owe it to you. Let the casino pay the server a living wage or find some robot to deliver the drink. Do you tip the workers at the rewards center when they give you some salad bowl you earned?



I tip the servers when enjoying a free meal that I earned. I'll still tip my $1 a drink but would think more people will tip less

The problem is that it's too ambigious and not transparent as to what's required at each casino bar. I was killing some time at the sportsbook bar at Paris and the bartender got me a drink right away, with me playing a single hand. Meanwhile at Caesars I put in a decent amount of coin in before I was offered a drink. Doesn't make any sense.


One time a bartender at Caesars AC told me I couldnít play at the bar unless I was Diamond, which is illegal in NJ.

I tried paying for a drink and he ignored me until I got off the machine.

Drink tickets now good for six hours. Bartender thinks they'll eventually go down to three hours.

Remodeling, rebranding:
https://www.reviewjournal.com/entertainment/entertainment-columns/kats/las-vegas-hard-rock-hotel-to-go-dark-for-4-months-in-virgin-renovations-1555298/
the rebranding reminds me somewhat of the shifts and changes the Aladdin / Planet Hollywood went through. I think what saved P. Hollywood though is that it's on the Strip (even though it doesn't even have a drive up Strip entrance, and people sometimes pull into Paris by mistake and miss P. Hollywood entirely).

I used to stay at the Hard Rock a lot, my player card there has only four digits I practically opened the place. When their limits were $5K due to my credit line they used to allow me to play to $10K. At the time I was a big player at Harvey's Tahoe, and Harvey's was the initial backer of Peter Morton's Hard Rock Vegas, until Morton sold off all his cafes and used the money to buy out Harvey's, and Harvey's is why I was invited to the Hard Rock opening.

The H.R. Vegas was never player friendly. They sweated any kind of card counter at BJ, they were very stingy with the free hands at Baccarat, and they imposed strict limits on how much you could tip dealers (partly due to celebrity tippers like Matt Damon). You used to see a lot of celebrities there; before Dennis Rodham went bust he used to sit at the BJ tables with a pyramidal stack of purple Jimmy Hendrix $500. chips, with Carmen Electra. I once played BJ with Pink's (Alecia Moore) entourage, and Baccarat more than a few times with Joe Viterelli. I watched Matt Damon get carried to his room in a drunken stupor. Many other celebrities were around too.

I mention the celebrities to emphasize how happening it once was (no celebrities there these days, I don't think).

The casino itself is circular, and relatively dark; my Dad said it reminded him of a bus terminal.

But still, there was the atmosphere, the great music, and the girls who flocked to the place that made it a fun casino and resort.

The Hard Rock Vegas had its heyday, but I haven't even stepped foot in the place for many years. It reminds me of the Palms, that was also super hot for some years and is now not even thought of much. In the end, maybe it has to do with that anyplace too far off the strip (other than downtown, that has its own following), has a hard time making it.

For the most part the spot that the Hard Rock and Palms occupied, at their heights, has been overtaken by the Cosmopolitan. Even the Cosmo has cooled somewhat in terms of crowds, but it's still busy.

I am very familiar with the system Caesars properties use for drinks, It is recommended to the casino to give a drink to the patron as soon as they insert money and start playing. A light goes on telling the bartender you just inserted money. They can configure the minimum bet amount but most casinos seem to use the default of $1. When you reach a configured amount of coin in the system will turn the light on telling the bartender that you are eligible for another drink. The light will then stay on as long as you keep playing at the desired pace.
