    Just found this board, love it. Would like to hear what others do for all the common tips. I am a $20k LOC player, and these are my current habits.

    - Casino's limo / car airport driver, to or from $20 (I never know what's right here)
    - Check in desk person at VIP check in $10 - $20 (Do I even need to do this?)
    - Host $300 envelope upon arrival. $200 more if I have a winning trip or I've pushed the comps, hard.
    - BJ Dealers: Green Chip bet, randomly, or continuously when on a streak.
    - Craps Dealers: $5.00 - $15 split on feature bets, $5.00 on any hard-way I play, $25 on the point if winning, increases on a long roll. On a loss, while leaving the table, will bet any small red/white chips remaining, for the dealers.
    - Slot / VP Hand Payers: $20 - $40 under $2k ticket. $100 > $2k (I never know whats right here)
    - Cocktail Waitress: $5.00 per trip (1 drink or 2)
    - Cashier when cashing in chips: $3.00 - $5.00
    - Valet guy / door opener if I take a cab: $2.00
    - Valet guy if he arranges a limo: $10.00
    - Servers at all meals: 25%, 30% if up
    - Housekeeping, I forget this one the most. But will try to leave a $10.00 on the very first day.

    Curious what others do.

    $20 for a limo is standard. More for lots of luggage or several passengers.

    I've never tipped a check in person.

    Very generous to your host.

    Overall you're definitely tipping well.

    My habits seem excessive in frequency when I lay them out. I don't know why I started duking the check in staff. Vegas brings it out, for sure, for me. Probably Superstition too, if I am being honest. If I was advising a 1st timer on a vegas trip, I certainly would not advise them to tip as I do.

    Of all the tipping that happens, the $1 or $2 for the guy that opens the taxi door seems the most.....absurd, even if its the smallest amount. Yet it is customary. And its a pain, digging thru your pockets to find small money.

    What do you do at the cab stand, if you ever take a taxi? Or with limo drivers of comped rides?

    What do you tip cocktail waitresses?

    For $300 - $500, the host better send some decent pussy up to the comped suite.

    I'm sure they appreciate your sacrifices. I find myself planning ahead to break bills before I head out.
