We’ve all watched the television shows and movies set in casinos, and we’ve all wondered if the moments that take place in these shows, where high-flying players are given all manner of free things in return for playing and betting more, are actually truthful. Well, they are! Casinos dole out, compared to other businesses anyway, an enormous amount of free stuff, but what amazing items and services can you, the reader, extract from casino tycoons?
This is the classic freebie, and deservedly so! Most casinos – whether in Vegas, Hong Kong, Monte Carlo or Macau – will offer any and all of their players free drinks. Whether you’re at an exclusive table with a $10,000 starting limit or relaxing in front of a penny slot machine, there will usually be waiting staff walking the aisles, offering free drinks, shots and the like. In the Wynn in Vegas, all guests are plied with free mojitos and tequila, and although cynics might think of this as a dirty ploy to make gamblers more suggestible and likely to be high rollers, crafty visitors can nevertheless use it as a wonderful way to pre-drink cheaply before late night festivities. Just remember to tip the waiter a dollar or two!
Whilst many Vegas casinos will offer up the occasional promotion to their customers, when it comes to free bets, promotional deals and giveaways, the mantle is placed firmly on the shoulders of the online casino industry. Here – at websites such as Springbok Casino, for instance – customers are regularly offered entry to free tournaments, deals and promotions that can truly put a shine on the online gaming experience. Perhaps traditional, bricks-and-mortar casinos could take a leaf out of their internet-based competitors’ books?
If you appear to the casino itself to be a respectable individual about to indulge in a account-ruining spell of gargantuan proportions (let’s say $5000 plus), the management will quickly earmark you as a very valued customer! What does this honorific bestow upon your casino experience, I hear you ask? Well, it could mean free drinks, free merchandise, tickets to shows and acts playing at the casino and even free accommodation, the quality of said rooms improving the more you put down on the table. A great way to take advantage of this deal is to take out a large chip, say, $5000, and then only play at the tables with around $500, before leaving. We bet that a sharp suited gentleman will approach you at some point during your game with a wonderful proposition, although obviously be careful of said propositions if you’re playing in one of Vegas’ many casino-come-chapels…
