What is the acceptable amount to tip everyone involved in the jackpot handpay? I won $20,000 on a lucky Royal Flush and I tipped the person who actually shut down the machine, got me paid, helped me with paperwork, etc, and was very nice to me about $1000. The two "witnesses,"however did basically nothing but verify the Jackpot with disengaged attitudes and I gave them $200 each out of courtesy. The "witnesses," gave me some of the the most disgusted looks I have ever seen in my life, as if conveying, "Where is OUR $1,000 cut?" No way in hell am I going to give two people $1,000 each just for basically just verifying a Jackpot. The person who got the $1,000 deserved every one of those dollars. I am wondering if $200 was way too high for the minimum effort they did. I am wondering if they each really deserved $20 instead.
I tip $20 on 10k and below and $100 on 20k and above. I may stop that soon and just let people do the job they are already getting paid for. That's total not per person.
The person who got $1000 did not deserve every one of those dollars. That was just overly generous of you.
I felt it was right since he did a lot of work and was nice about it. I'm thinking I was overly generous with the $400 I gave the two sourpusses($200 each) who basically verified the jackpot.
I'm kind of shocked that the sour pusses were upset with $200. I almost wonder if you misread them. There is no way they are routinely getting more than that. Going into your $10/hr job and getting $200 in cash should put a smile on your face.
I'm only peripherally involved in the world of machines but I've worked in a casino for years and have played thousands of hours of poker. Never seen someone turn their nose up at such a generous tip, or even a pretty reasonable one. Most people are professional enough to at least keep a false smile going for a bad tip.
Not only rude, but stupid of them. A great way to discourage tipping is to make the tipper feel bad.
For reference, I tip 15% -20%, to waiters/waitresses, although I tipped 30% last night to one that went out of her way to do something for us. I tip 10% to buffet server.
