Are drinks really free in Vegas?

If you are actively gambling, drinks in Vegas are free. To get a free drink on the casino floor, you need to be actively gambling at a slot machine or table game when the cocktail waitress comes by.

Most casinos require $20 in the machine for your first comped drink at the video poker bartops. Some casinos may have a drink voucher system where you may need to play for an unspecified amount of time and money before getting a second comped drink.

Is Las Vegas worth it?

Yes, absolutely! Las Vegas is a one-of-a-kind place. It’s a great escape for adults, from stunning shows and performers to fun activities to incredible food. Even if you don’t like gambling or drinking, you can find great things to do. However, we do not feel Vegas is suitable for kids.
