They have them in Tunica, in at least one property . Can't recall where else, but that wasn't the first time I'd seen them.



Harrah's New Orleans as well

I still canít figure out why Iíve only seen touch screen ordering in CET casinos on the east coast.
It fixes every problem with cocktail waitresses.

A few moments after the player's card is inserted the first page of the drink ordering screen defaults to the player's favorite beverages and to what might be referred to as 'the shelf data'. That is, Top Shelf or whatever as far as the quality of the player's brands of liquor. So "Gin and Tonic" will be indicated on the screen and the bartender's screen (or computer assisted dispenser) will not only indicate Gin but will indicate which brands may be used for that particular player.

This makes dispatching the Tray Lizards easy and makes their trips largely drink delivery rather than also including order taking. Picking up empties, trash, etc. still has to take place as does drink ordering from neophytes,etc.

I view it as an efficiency device albeit probably motivated by the casino's desire to slap the wrist of those with excessive boarding house reach but still accommodate most patrons who do like to receive drink comps while playing a 12 percent house edge game.

How about a color for "no cocktail waitress has been by in a long time". Or perhaps, "ordered a drink and she never returned" light. Or, "how come no one is covering this area" light.

Agree on that. The only place I drink is at a table because it's the only place to see a waitress. Otherwise I just go to the bar and play video bj to get a coffee in the morning. I'm not sure if the paper in the glass is a bill or not, I assume it isn't and leave when I want.

I believe it's a union thing.

I know the reason why casinos in Vegas don't have drink fountains (people being dumb by bringing their big gulp cups to fill up), but I love these things in all the non Vegas casinos. These need to be a thing everywhere.

I am willing to stop tipping cocktail waitresses to make this happen

My question would be how long does the light stay green before it reverts back? Say I'm playing, have a green light but no waitress in sight. I keep plugging away and eventually one shows up. Do I have credit a second drink built into the machine? I can see this at bars, with limited seats, but the cost of implementing it casino wide doesn't seem worth it.

Maybe they could do it as bounce back play. "You've earned 40 bar drinks." Yay. (I've thought of worse ideas, but that's good for today)

The "points" may well stay on your card and be valid over multiple sessions. Not the worse idea ,at all.
