Tipping Slot Attendants In Las Vegas

Did the slot attendant give me money last week when I lost money?

It is a scam. I call hors manure on that. For what? The slot attendant did nothing but take 3 minutes of her time to pay me my earnings. I also do not have to stumble with placing 2-3 quarters in her hand each time she brings me a new drink.

Tipping is very personal, at the restaurant if you are not a regular tipper but you always eat there, then be prepared to have mucus in your food. Maybe in the old days, before all of this new computer generated tickets, I would consider tipping the slot attendant.

In todays world the casino could just as easily have the machine spit out a ticket and then I could take it to the cashiers’ cage to redeem my earnings. Explain to them how you won a mini-jackpot and was going to keep gambling here but instead you are taking your winnings to a different casino to play because you are tired of the slot attendant who is very rude too you, simply because you did not give her a tip.

If you feel that you have received excellent customer service in a casino and want to tip the person or people, then go right ahead. As For Slot attendants, the only thing they can do is be rude too you. Good tips can encourage great customer service. The cocktail waitresses, the slot attendants, and all other casino personnel have no incentive to be friendly, prompt, and courteous to the casino patrons.

Many people who like to tip say “well the slot attendant pointed out the good machines too use”. I may have lost $700 before I won the jackpot. They point many customers to many different machines. Instead, the casino wants to verify that the win is authentic, and then have the slot attendant pay me my winnings.

The debate on whether you should tip your slot attendant or not rages on. The customer then thinks they won because the slot attendant pointed them too the machine originally.

The debate has raged on for years. Tipping slot attendants is simply the right thing too do.

Their have been casinos in the past that have tried a no tipping policy. A lot of their income is based on tips. That means I am still down $200, and the slot attendant wants a tip. Each night the slot attendants play a game of numbers. You should never feel forced to tip a slot attendant.

The slot attendant will then stare at you, hoping for tip. You should decide for yourself whether you want to tip a slot attendant. Many people feel if they hit a jackpot, regardless of the size, they should tip the slot attendant because he or she was the one that paid out the jackpot.

The casinos that have tried to the no tipping policy have paid higher than minimum wage to their workers, but it was still not enough.

If this happens multiple times a casino will then either retrain the slot attendants in customer service skills or fire them.

As for the other casino staff such as cocktail waitresses and blackjack dealers, if you tip or not is up too you. These people feel that the only thing the slot attendant did is put a ticket in the machine and count out your cash.

If I have to tip a slot attendant to keep him or her happy then I will simply spend my money elsewhere. They can get you paid out faster, and they will let the cocktail waitresses know that you tip so your drinks will come more often without waiting.. It is all luck.

Just because I won a $500 jackpot does not mean that I am ahead $500. Out of all of these customers, one may hit a jackpot. Slot attendants do not deserve a tip and never have.

Yes, You Should Always Tip the Slot Attendants

Slot Attendants generally work for minimum wage. On the same token, if you feel a customer does not receive a tip then do not tip them. Did the slot attendant pitch in on the money I put in the machine? No. Image Credit: (Flickr/sophistechate)

All Day Long Buffets In Las Vegas

If you go to the same casino to play on a regular basis, a repeat customer, then you should always tip the slot attendants. Casinos want players to keep playing after they win a jackpot, not pack up and move to a competitor’s casino.

Further Thoughts on Slot Attendants

Whether you choose to tip the slot attendants or not is a very personal choice. Here are both sides to the story.

Most slot attendants will tend to be courteous, even if you do no tip them. They can point you out too machines that tend to pay off more often. Most of them will lose. I then usually receive many drinks and get them without waiting. The slot attendants do not know any better then you do which gaming machines are the best too use. It is very hard to survive in Las Vegas on minimum wage.

No, Don’t Ever Tip the Slot Attendants

I gamble my own money, I get lucky and win $500, and now I am suppose to tip the slot attendant who simply paid me the cash? It is a scam. If your slot attendant is rude, cash out, talk to a floor supervisor, and then move onto a new casino.

A slot attendant always needs to be polite and courteous to players regardless of whether they receive a tip or not. I don’t think so.

If you win a jackpot and don’t tip the slot attendant, and then receive poor and rude service from the slot attendant, quit playing. I tend to give a large tip too the cocktail waitress the first time I see her. The problem though, is … Read more

High Stakes Online Poker Player Isildur1 Signs with PokerStars

This may be set to change with the signing of Isildur1 to PokerStars.

Who is Isildur1?

No matter the Swedish pros cloud of mystery he is being adopted wholeheartedly by the PokerStars stable of pros. The Superstar Showdown will be a scheduled heads-up game between Isildur1 and any serious challengers in a 2,500 hand showdown. After the very public cheating scandal at UltimateBet the biggest room for stratospheric poker cash game action became Full Tilt Poker, which happens to house some of the most notable poker pros in the game and had also been the preferred room of Isildur1. On December 7, 2010 Isildur1 officially became a Team PokerStars Pro along with superstar pros like Daniel Negreanu and Vanessa Rousso, but the player’s identity is still not known to the greater public.

What PokerStars Signing Isildur1 Means for High Stakes Poker

To make it even more appealing to the average player who doesn’t have $15,000 to battle against Isildur1 the world’s largest online poker room is offering qualifying tournaments for players to use to reach the Superstar Showdown matches.

Creating scheduled high stakes games means that poker can become a true spectator sport. Poker players will have to continue to wait to find out who the Swede is, but in 2011 Isildur1 is reportedly going to play in several live tournaments.

Over the past five years there has been a movement from one hot high stakes poker room to another. In the past high stakes railbirds were forced to wait around to see matches played on Full Tilt at the discretion of the players, now the games will be scheduled for the enjoyment of all. There has been great speculation that the mysterious PokerStars pro is in fact known pro Viktor Blom, but there is no verification of this. The stakes will be no lower than $50/$100 and can be played on either No Limit Hold’em or Pot Limit Omaha tables.

PokerStars signs mysterious Swedish pro Isildur1Isildur1 has been a name of complete mystery in the world of online poker. The unknown Swede showed up on Full Tilt Poker late in 2009 and took the high stakes poker world by storm beginning one of the most dramatic swings in online poker history including losing the biggest pot in online poker history to Patrik Antonius. What makes Isildur1 so interesting isn’t just that he/she has taken part in all 10 of the largest online poker pots in history, the player has also remained completely unknown. The acquiring of Isildur1 has given PokerStars a pro that brings with it positive controversy and media buzz to the felt on and offline.. The matches will start December 19th.

In the press release announcing the signing of Isildur1 the pro said he/she will “improve my live game for some upcoming events” in addition to improving on “Heads-Up No Limit Hold’em, but also try to develop my Pot Limit Omaha game.” Clearly the pro plans on making a grand appearance at some of the most notable live tournaments to represent PokerStars. From Phil Ivey to Tom Dwan, Full Tilt has been the place for high stakes poker. Daniel Negreanu has stated, “It’s not every day that a player like Isildur1 comes along.” Negreanu and the PokerStars community are excited as is the entire online poker industry, as the most dramatic and unpredictable player in high stakes history now has a room to call home.

For those players how have serious ambitions to play against Isildur1 PokerStars asks that those players either play in the Superstar Showdown Qualifiers that will run from December 13 to April 3 or contact showdown@pokerstars.com for those who have the current bankroll to make the challenge.

Accompanying Isildur1 will be new heads up high stakes action in the form of the Superstar Showdown. The only thing the poker community knows is that Isildur1 is from Sweden. From 2006 to about 2008 UltimateBet was the place to find the highest poker action. The winner of the match will be the player who is ahead after the 2,500 hands or busts the other player by winning the other player’s bankroll before the 2,500 hands are up… Read more

FanNation fantasy basketball picks for Monday, Feb. 9 – NBA

In his second season, Antetokounmpo has shown flashes of superstar potential, including a 25-point game against the Lakers last week and a 27-point game against the Rockets. Nets, 8 p.m. He has beaten his projection in five of his last six games while averaging 21.0 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks on 52.8 percent shooting. The 34-year-old is averaging just 9.1 points and 6.3 rebounds this season, but is still capable of a breakout game. In his last six games, Clarkson has averaged 15.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals. Clippers 8:30 p.m. The Pacers are two games out of the No. With Blake Griffin out with an elbow injury, the Clippers are reeling and Parsons will have an advantage against whoever guards him.

Center: Al Jefferson, Hornets, +16.6

Sign up for tonight’s Basketball Throwdown here.

Ready to show your friends you know more about the NBA than they do? FanNation’s Basketball Throwdown fantasy basketball game is your best option. In just 26 minutes, he piled up 15 points, 14 rebounds and three assists. The scoring system takes into account points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals and turnovers. ET

While the Lakers were blown out by the Cavaliers on Sunday, Clarkson more than doubled his Basketball Throwdown projection. ET

Center: Brook Lopez, Nets at Bucks, 8 p.m. He scored a career-high 20 points and added six rebounds, four assists and three steals to finish with 39.2 points. The Nets don’t have anyone who can match Antetokounmpo’s size on the perimeter.

Sunday’s overachievers

Jefferson nearly single-handedly carried the Hornets past the Pacers on Sunday. As long as Walker is out, Jefferson should be the team’s first option and consistently beat his projection.

- Paul Palladino

Parson’s statistics are down slightly from last season with the Rockets, but he has beaten his projection in three of his last four games while averaging 18.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 steals. Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins hit a buzzer-beating game-winner against the Phoenix Suns Sunday. 

Guard: Jordan Clarkson, Lakers, +24.2

Antetokounmpo has beaten his projection in seven straight games, averaging 15.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.7 blocks while shooting 61.2 percent from the field. The team that out-performs its projections by the largest amount wins, so picking a lineup of Stephen Curry, LeBron James and Joakim Noah is no sure-fire path to victory. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference and will need Scola to play well to reach the playoffs.

I’ll give you my picks each day and a recap of yesterday’s top performers so you can get bragging rights over your friends.

Today’s picks. ET

Forward: Luis Scola, Pacers, +16.3

Guard: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bucks vs. While his minutes have been limited since he returned from a groin injury, Jefferson played 36 minutes against Indiana. You can also bet anywhere from $1 to $500 on each night’s matchup or play for free.

Since returning from a back injury, Lopez has been a key factor for the Nets off the bench. You pick a guard, forward and center who you think will exceed their fantasy projections. With Kemba Walker out of the lineup, Jefferson made 13 of 22 shots en route to 30 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and a block. The Bucks have size at all five positions, but don’t have a big man to slow down Lopez on the block.

DeMarcus Cousins hits game-winner against Suns

Forward: Chandler Parsons, Mavericks vs. With just a 15-point projection, Clarkson is a good fantasy option moving forward.

Scola had a big game off the bench on Sunday to help the Pacers beat the Hornets… Read more

The Poker and Magic the Gathering Strategy Connection

Poker Skills Gained from Magic the Gathering

In an interview with ESPN back in 2009 David Williams explained that Magic “teaches the brain how to work… Understanding the statistical odds of putting together an effective playing deck can separate a good player from a terrible Magic player. What is only becoming apparent now is that Magic helped mold many of the biggest young players in poker today. The subject matter of the game is reflective of the popular role playing game Dungeons and Dragons, but is far more simple and only involves cards.

There have been many games that have been training grounds for poker professionals. With the explosion of online poker over the past eight years, the game has started changing even faster. One added feature of Magic the Gathering is that as new cards are introduced to the game every month with new spells and lands the game is always changing. Plus it’s fun!. Playing Magic the Gathering doesn’t guarantee that you will be a successful poker player, but it does create an early training ground for poker players. But most importantly it is card game of intense strategy and changing situations.

Any poker professional will tell you that poker is always changing. Tactics are altered and so is strategy, but the critical thinking never changes.

Magic the Gathering Trains Young Poker ProfessionalsFor pretty much any guy who grew up in the mid to late ’90s as a teenager or brother of one either played or remember hearing about the card game Magic the Gathering. This type of premise reflects very closely to poker, especially tournament poker, in that to win the player must think critically using the cards in hand to bust or defeat the opposing players.

In Magic the Gathering each player starts with 7 cards and must use those cards to protect one’s self and most importantly, eliminate the opponent or opponents through a network of spells and changing lands. It’s problem solving, logical deduction.” This logical deduction is a major aspect of playing successful poker, as is critical thinking, and to do so in a very short period of time. The skills gained in Magic are vast and have been absolutely applied to poker by players like Williams, Parker, and Levy.

While the actual calculations needed are very different the training to think critically this way is deeply instilled in all Magic players and transfers very well to playing poker at a high level. Williams and other poker pros still play Magic as an active outlet to poker. In poker nearly all actions have a possible positive and negative outcome and the same can be said for Magic. Magic boasts players that are literally taking over as some of the most feared poker, both online and live, players. However, backgammon is not a card game, where Magic is just a strategy based card game. One of the most popular is backgammon, which WSOP champion Gus Hansen spring boarded into poker from. The poker pros who grew up playing Magic competitively had the benefit of this training when those who didn’t had to train their brains along the way.

Each player is a powerful wizard and each action in the game is set upon defeating your opposing wizard, or wizards, in a duel. The only difference in poker is that the statistical probabilities that need to be quickly calculated revolve around pot odds, and hand calculations, and effective betting.

Each card in Magic has a value that can be used in winning the game, but must be used strategically within one’s playing deck just as a poker player needs to understand the strategy behind betting odds to decide the best course of action. Just like any sports athlete poker pros need to train and for the new generation of poker pros, Magic the Gatherings is that training. These players include World Series of Poker bracelet winner and Main Event runner-up David Williams, bracelet winner Brock Parker, and feared online players Isaac Haxton, Justin Bonomo, and Adam Levy.

Understanding basic statistics and probability is also a major part of playing Magic as players draw cards and construct their playing decks… Read more
