  1. The sticky keys, grrr! And they ain't at the bar! The bar ones usually clean. If it causes trouble, you can always do touch screen.

  2. The only thing I will correct him on is when you tip on the jackpot you aren't tipping the Casino. You are tipping the employee.

  3. Id tip the employee hand paying me maybe 5 dollars like you would a driver. I dont see what they did to deserve to even .05 is 60 bucks. You been paying the casino your whole life to get this rare rare rare win. Dont give them or the employee more.

  4. Um… Oxymoron seems to come to mind here anyone on some of this video?? Tipping on a game of chance OR skill (and SKILL is debatable for VP) is ridiculous. Employees doing HAND-PAYS are on regular salary or hourly wage unlike waitress, bar tenders and TABLE dealers. If you feel NEED to tip anyone make it your housekeeping staff. I’ve been AMAZED at what just throwing towels in tub/corner and dropping a $5/$10 and a note saying “thank you”. Come back to a PERFECT room with fresh flowers, REAL wooden hairbrushes, UNREAL sewing kits and other stuff housekeeping has “access” for the “major suites/players”. Even had “Thank You” card from housekeeping along with bottles of wine, etc. Remember, housekeeping removes all the hotel freebies from other rooms left behind and can do whatever they want with them. booze, gift bags, etc. Heck, one major Vegas hotel (that’s my secret!) has incredible KIDS Gift-Bags and are better than any airport gift, LOL!

  5. So if I win a million dollars I'm suppose to give a 5000 dollar tip. AHH NO. I'll tip
    anywhere between $20 and $100 to the people who hand me my money
    and the other person doing the paperwork, as for the casino I'm giving them
    nothing, although I will spend more money there, I will also tip the maid service
    and room service people better, although I already tip them well.

  6. Tip after they took a lot of money from you, so you are not winning all that much.
    Plus, the cocktail or bartender is who helped you win that jackpot!
    I don't tip anyone unless they deserve it!
