The casino's allow it, so it must be ok? The casino's allow, encourage, push players to be over intoxicated and lose money that they can't afford. The casinos allow, implement a policy of enticement for working people to cash their paycheck and spend it at the casino, before they ever get home to pay the rent and buy food.
I don't allow the casino's to make the decision of what is right or wrong for me.


In this case, if it's wrong, the only victim is the casino. Therefore, if they consent, it is no longer wrong.Do casino host get tips

A tip to a host is for a job well done on that particular trip. A thank you for going above and beyond his/her job for their client. Or, for comping 12k which was 3k more than the host should have. Always at the end of a trip. And, not every trip. How much? Well that is relative. 500 max..

How about a glowing letter to the host's supervisor or am I being old fashioned? That could be worth more than a few bucks. Yes, you could tip as well but the letter takes a little effort.

Mike, I don't mean to judge you or anyone. But isn't tipping someone, with the understanding or even hopes of receiving something back that you are not entitled to or would not otherwise receive, nothing more than a veiled form of bribery? The fact that such activities are commonplace and accepted by society, does not push it across the line from wrong to right in my book.


Ouch! Very valid point. Yes, you could argue that this is a mild form of bribery. Maybe it is a bad excuse, but this kind of bribery is the way Vegas does business. Also, these bribes don't get me things way beyond my means. They just ensure that the host fights harder to get me into events where I fall into a grey area of being worthy for.Host
I don't have to worry about it anymore because I'm persona non grata at most Vegas casinos now.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Some give a nice tie at xmas.

Casino Host Skills

Many casino workers get the majority of their salary from tips. This is the way it is for those employed in the service industry. Most table game players will tip the dealers while they are playing by making a bet for them. Some will just tip their dealer when they leave the game. But what about slot players? Are they expected to tip? How much and to whom?

When Do Slot Players Tip?

Slot players usually tip when they receive a hand pay jackpot when the attendant must come and verify the jackpot and then come back and count out your money. If it is a jackpot over $1,200 the attendant will have the tax forms that you will need to fill out before you are paid. There are usually two or three people in attendance during a hand pay. This is for security reasons to make sure the correct amount of money is being paid to the correct person. This often leads to some confusion as to which one you should tip.

How to Tip Attendants

You don’t have to tip each one separately. You can give one person a larger bill and tell them to split it. Generally, give the tip to the person who actually paid me the money. There is no set amount for tipping after a jackpot. Many players will tip somewhere between a half to one percent of the jackpot. For a thousand dollar jackpot, this would be between $5 to $10 dollars. When you do receive a hand paid jackpot, they never bring you bills smaller than a twenty. Are they just hoping that in the excitement of the moment you will hand them back a twenty dollar bill regardless of the size of the jackpot? Make sure to carry a couple five and ten dollar bills to handle this situation.

Casino Host Tips

Tipping is a personal choice and your decision to tip anyone should be based on the service you receive. One criterion you can use before tipping for a hand pay jackpot is the amount of time it took to get paid. If the service is prompt, you may be inclined to tip a little more. If, however, you are waiting a long period of time, you may tip less. Take into consideration how busy the casino is at the time of the jackpot. If it is a busy Saturday night, you have to allow for the fact that there may be others ahead of you.

Casino Host Tipping Etiquette

The one person all players should tip it the beverage server. Many casinos offer free drinks to the players. But in some casinos, those drinks are not free for the waiter or waitress. Because their tips are part of their salary some casinos require the waitress or waiter to pay a tax on each drink they order to take out onto the casino floor. If you order a drink and leave before it is delivered or you don’t tip the server you have just cost them money. Many players are not aware of this so the next time you order a free drink, please take care of the person serving you.
