Las Vegas Tipping

Las Vegas Tipping
Going to Las Vegas, means using tipping guide lines. They will make your stay more enjoyable. In Vegas a lot of people such as waitresses and bartenders earn their living by giving good service, and of course they expect tips in return. Always keep in mind you do not have to tip for bad service.

Las Vegas Tipping Etiquette

Keep in mind that all of the below are just tipping guide lines for Las Vegas. If somebody acts mean and grouchy, as if it is a big favor to serve you, take that into consideration when leaving a gratuity. On the other hand if somebody is pleasant and helpful don’t hesitate to reward that person with a nice tip.

Dealers Tipping a dealer will not make you win a bet. But he can help by explaining the rules and making sure your chips are correctly placed. Tips should be from $1and up and given from time to time or at the end of a session. You can give the tip between hands or place a bet, saying it’s for the dealer. Most people do not tip if they are losing.
