Types of Free drinks you can ask for while gambling?

hey,

i was just wondering what kind of drinks you can ask for while gambling? i assume simple things like beers or rum and cokes etc. things of those nature, but is there actually a list of drinks allowed? i would asume that you couldn't get free drinks like fancy pina coladas and things of those nature.

any advice? don't wanna look like an idiot asking for some XO cognac. haha

You'd be surprised what drinks are available if you're spending enough on your gambling. The casino will do its best to accommodate the bigger gambler. If you're a low roller it's more restrictive.

Here's a site that will tell you most things you need to know.

You can ASK for anything. Whether you get it depends on the following:

1) How expensive/difficult it is for the bartender to make

2) How well you tip your waitress

3) How much of a high roller you are.

A pina colada is not that tough and you could probably get that at a number of places, however you are going to get a lot of smirks from the heavy gamblers if you're drinking that at a gaming table :) You are not going to get single malt scotch, though, unless you're throwing down black chips all over the place.

On our recent trip we asked if they made mojitos for guests on the floor and they said no, but offered a mai tai instead. We took the mai tai, but it was horrible.

I have ordered pina colada's many times while playing slots. I remember them being good at MGM, but ordered one at Flamingo on our last trip and it was basically rum and island oasis poured over ice.

Are a lot of them premixed, bottled drinks? Is that what a well drink is?
