My Las Vegas Sports Book Tip.
About the time Cher takes to the stage in Burlesque (first 15 minutes), my mind begins to slip. ‘Is she still playing in Vegas?’ I think to myself. Then I drift deeper and find myself daydreaming about lounging in a Strip sports book drinking on the casino’s dime.
It’s no secret that Las Vegas casinos ply players with free booze. If you are gambling you are eligible. The problem is that gambling requires you to spend money. And despite the free drinks, its just not really budget-friendly, unless you win of course. There is, however, a way to drink for hours for only $2, even in the swankiest of casinos.
Never a big gambler, I was always more interested in scheming the casino for free drinks than playing craps. Like 737s on a flight path, cocktail waitresses work a similar pattern around the casino floor; the key is to find their path and then post up at the nearest slot machine ( I prefer the penny slots). It’s a solid solution for free drinks; unfortunately, its a bit tedious.
For years this tactic was my go to move in Vegas. I would sit at a machine, slowly putting in coins while scoping the floor for the waitress. Then, I discovered the sports book. Like an ultimate man cave, the sports book hosts all things sports, including horse racing, on a wall of TVs. For as little as $2, I can bet on a two hour sporting event, making me eligible for free, unlimited drinks while I’m watching the game in the sports book (just remember to keep your wagering ticket out and to tip your server).
