Additionally, many poker rooms have electric strips under the table so you can charge at your seat.

Some go one step further and provide usb power jacks, so you only need to bring a wire. Some even have wires you can borrow.

The places I've stayed downtown with free wifi with a room comp

Plaza
Fremont (all Boyd is free wifi regardless)
El Cortez

I can't remember 4 Queens. I remember staying in the room thinking man this room sucks, but I got free room service so bring on all the food. No wifi at Golden Nugget or the D without paying for it.

Nothing like unlimited room service :)

Remember the Sam's Town unlimited comp? My buddy literally ordered every dessert off the menu at TGI Friday's. And made me bring it too him in the room.

But do you have to play poker there? I just want to use wifi. Not much into poker.

Billy Bob's is regretting their decision probably. I enjoyed the fire and ice platter, filet and lobster. Probably a good $100 or so everytime I went. Also did not forget the dessert.

Usually, no. Just sit at an empty table. After a few minutes a floorman may ask what's up. Be honest and say you don't play poker and if he doesn't mind, you're just gonna use the wifi for a few minutes before you go back to the blackjack tables.

^At some busy top tier rooms at peak times, there will be a waiting list. You could be on the waiting list for a while, especially if you didn't put your name on it. For ex. according to the Bravo app, Aria has an eight player waiting list for 2/5NL right now. Bellagio has seven waiting for a seat in both 2/5 and 10/20. And this is Monday.

Flea wifi (not free, flea): Make a fie-dollah sports bet. Then come back for another, on the opposite side, on something that's close to even on the moneyline, often available in a sport like MLB. Like today, the Phillies/Rockies were about -105/-105 in some books, as were the Angels/Blue Jays. Then sit and 'watch' your games while doing your thing on your thing. Then cash out for about $9 back from your $10. You should easily get 3+ hours out of a single baseball game without extra innings. And if they are loose about it and you don't look too much like the flea you actually plan to be, you may even get a drink ticket. Some casino cocktails amount to 'salad bar in a glass' or 'fruit salad under umbrella.'

You do have money to get home eventually, right? Along with a lot of other stuff people do for other stuff, these things have been done before, but tend to wear out eventually when one has been milking them long, hard, and often enough to resemble a houseplant, or an unofficial local would-be 'AP' possibly residing in a storm drain.

Is minimum bet on baseball game $2 or $5. I think I can pick a game for $2.
