Customer service positions are historically low-paying jobs
and Las Vegas is no exception. The people you interact with
in the hotel and the casino count on tips for a decent living
so don't forget them while you're on your trip. They often
get stiffed or are treated rudely when people take their lousy
luck out on them.
At the Craps table: When the shooter's point is a six or eight I'll occasionally
throw a dollar chip down on the layout and say "Hard six for the
boys" or "Hard eight for the boys". It's a dollar bet that
pays $10 if the next six or eight is thrown "the hard ways"
(as doubles) and it's a way to not only tip the dealers but get them into
the action. (Note that if the number your hard bet is on is shot easy,
i.e. not as doubles, the dealers don't get the dollar, the house does,
but the dealers still appreciate your getting them in the action.) Another
way to get the dealers in on the action is to place a chip next to your
chip(s) on the Pass Line. This is a Pass Line bet for the dealers. When
you do this, the stickman will often say "Dealers on the line".
(I usually do this when it's my turn to shoot the dice.) Another alternative
is to simply throw about 5% to 10% of any winnings down on the layout
"for the boys" as an out-right tip when you're ending your session.
At the Blackjack table: I tip the dealer a buck or two out-right (when
playing $5 or $10 hands) if they deal me a "natural" (ace and
a ten-value card). If the dealer has been dealing me a good percentage
of winning hands I'll occasionally place a $5 chip on the layout between
my bet and the dealer. This is a bet for the dealer getting them into
the action. You can also do the "end of session" 5% to 10% thing
If you like playing the slots, ask the slot attendants (located in the
center of a large carousel of machines) or roving change attendants which
machines are "loose". They're around those machines all day
and have no problem helping you get some of the boss' money. But be sure
to tip them if you walk away a winner.
Cocktail Waitresses: Drinks are free while you're gambling. I usually
give the cocktail waitress a $1 chip or $1 slot coin each time she brings
me a drink.
Shuttle bus drivers: The standard for airport shuttle bus drivers is $1
or $2 a bag.
Tipping drivers of
the free shuttles which run between hotels is at your discretion. They
often have a cup near the front of the bus for the tips but I usually
hand $1 to them directly.
The shuttle bus drivers
for the various off-Strip activities will often return you directly to
your hotel rather than to the central pick-up point so tipping them for
this time-saving service would be appropriate also.
Bellman: $1 to $2 a bag is the norm.
Maid: I leave a $5 tip each day, mainly because I shower each day and
that involves extra effort on the maid's part. Some guides say to leave
one large tip at the end of your stay but I feel this is unfair. You may
have several different maids during your stay due to their work schedules
and assignments, and your tip could go to someone who didn't touch your
room while you were there. Plus doesn't it make more sense to reap any
benefits of your generosity (such as extra towels, etc.) while you're
still there ?
Room Service: $3 to $5 depending on how fast I get my order.
Either write "Tip=$5."
Buffet waiters/waitresses: The buffets usually have waiters or waitresses
bring you your drinks, and refills are no problem. I tip $2 to $5 depending
on how attentive they are.
Don't try and hail a cab in front of a hotel/casino. The cabbies will
only respond to doormen. Get your cab through them and tip them a buck
or two (more for more people).
Cabbies: 15% is the normal rate but you may want to add a couple bucks
if you ask for advice on a good place to play or eat.
If you're driving, valet parking attendants usually get $1 to $3 depending
on how fast they are.
If you're taking a commercial (non-charter) flight and things
are so busy at the ticket counter that a sky-cap takes care
of checking your bags at the curb, tip them a couple bucks
per bag for speeding you to your gate.
