How much should you tip when visiting Las Vegas?

What About Those Gratuities?

While visiting Las Vegas you will no doubt feel the need to tip a service worker or staff.  No one really likes to talk about money, but everyone needs to be in the know so you receive good service.  Sometimes a small tip can go a long way for not only receiving good service (and dissuading poor service), but also for good staff to guest relationships.

Not getting good service? Perhaps you should’ve given a small tip. I once heard that if someone was a poor tipper, no tipper, or rude upon check in then the bell hops would mark a person’s luggage with a chalk mark to warn other staff members. Could be an urban legend, however I am sure that coworkers have a way of communicating that outsiders don’t understand. Moving on…
How much is expected?  Who do I tip?  Am I supposed to tip this person?

Never fear, below is the basic tipping guide from the Las Vegas tourism board as it relates to your next visit to Vegas.  I hope you find it helpful. 

Suggested Gratuities

Las Vegans are here to serve you. If you’re pleased with the service you receive, a small tip is customary.

  • A tip of 15 to 20 percent is the norm when food or drink is served.
  • Hotel personnel – $1 to $2 a bag is customary.
  • Dealers and slot attendants – a small bet is the standard reward.
