I'm mostly a beer guy in general so I'd say 9 out of 10 times I'll order a Coors Light while I'm gambling. 1. I know how much alcohol I'm getting. 2. Drinking light beer prevents me from getting way too drunk.

Has anyone ever made or seen an interesting drink request? I'm not the type of person who will fully exploit the beverage service while gambling but I've always wondered how far you can take it.

Also, does anyone seem to notice there being a large amount of white Russians being ordered in Vegas? Maybe it's just me but it seems to be one of the most popular mixed drinks I've seen delivered while gambling.

I drink coffee in the casinos. I never touch booze when I'm working.

I usually order Jagerbombs in the form of a mixed drink while gambling. I tell them I want half Jaeger and half Red Bull in a cup, with ice as a drink. I usually tip $10 on the first one. That keeps them coming without much pushback.

When I drink in the casino and not driving I want to get drunk without all the liquid, so I'll go with a long island or rum and coke.

What's the follow up strategy?

I've never ordered a white Russian anywhere but Vegas. I decided to try it one night since it was free and all. I had a few but it really filled me up. Usually I stick to light beer

At my batchelors party in Vegas in 2008 we drank Jaegermeister and Red Bull at the Paris. After that we moved to Casino Royale and drank whatever beer they gave us.......NEVER, EVER, AGAIN!!! :)

Now I drink water

I usually don't drink when I gamble because I will be driving home, but in those cases I do drink, I typically just have one Godfather, Bradford, or perhaps a straight gin.

When I was in Vegas, I either drank Heineken or Guinness, depending on what they'd give you (Guinness at Golden Gate!) and I would drink an occasional SoCo and coke to switch things up. When we stayed at Wheeling Island last week, I drank mainly SoCo and coke, but had a couple cups of Yuengling Draft Lager.

If ever I wanted to accomodate the casino and give them an extra advantage to win my money....I would order beer, or vodka, or wine, or rum. or Gin. or vermouth or any form of whiskey, but I would stay far far away from diet coke, orange juice, bottled water, ginger ale, sprite.
