Who out there knows the proper etiguette for tipping a attendent for a hand payout?
Is it customary to pay the attendant a certain percentage who brings you the money? Better tip for quicker payout? What percentage do you feel is fair? Is this why on a $1000 hand pay they bring you nine 100 dollar bills and the rest in twenties? I personally have only had one hand payout in my time at the casino and I paid $10 for a $500 pot.
I'm sure someone might know out there and any feedback is appreciated.

Tipping for a hand payout..

I have been told its like tipping at a resturant, 12-15%, but knowing how most gamblers are, i would say its about 60-40 that there will be no tip at all, but thats completely up to the winner, it is there winnings, plus it depends on how you have been doing throughout the day, if that hand payout just got you even then maybe you won't tip, i say it's totally up to the winner.

- I think its a personal thing. For me..if I win 4000, I'm sorry, but I am not going to tip the attendant $600 for bringing me my money that I won, and and W-2 form. I have just given them $100 on a large jackpot like that, and $50. and sometimes even $100 on a $1000 depending how far I am up.
All and all, if they are bringing you over your money, you should at least give them something, even if its just a twenty.
- Meeee too!!! I am too busy tipping my waitress to worry about tipping anyone else!!! ooo hooooo!!trpschick wrote:

- Tipping is just polite. I play roulette and anytime I win more than $100 I throw 2 or 3 $1 chips to the coupier. So many DON'T tip he/she is very thankful. Any advantage? I would say yes. When your number hits in roulette you get a LOT of $1 chips back. The way I "bank" winnings is to ask for $25 chips. I have found lots of coupiers don't like to do the math and get grumpy if you ask for "give me a couple of $25 with that." Tossing a couple of chips to the coupier helps me bank winnings in a nice, calm way. My 2 cents!
- Hi PMM,
Thats a very good question. I am gonna play devils advocate here and ask why anyone should have to tip an employee for doing there job. This is not like a waitress job where their only source of income is tips. These employees that hand pay you are paid very well.
Not that i have'nt tipped them. But there is times i use discretion. If i have my lite on and need service and it takes that person 45 minutes to come over to my machine (on a slow day) and isnt exactly cordial...Then that same person has to hand pay me later with a great big smile because they want a piece of my pie..I dont feel too cool about that.
I tip according to how my day is in losses verse wins and their service overall.
- Hi Allabout,
I think the staff all pools the tips (other than the servers)...that's why u see several employees running up when u need to be hand paid...grinnin that great big smile. I have a friend who is a bartender...even they pool all the tips. It can be unfair to those who work well and provide good service while their fellow employee slacks all night.
- When I go to the cashiers window, I see a locked box where tips are placed for the attendant redeeming your pay out vouchers. Sometimes I even see twenties in there. That is a place I very seldom tip. They had nothing to do with my cashout and they get paid per hour a decent wage. Just another part of the casino looking for a handout of your win. Even if I was redeeming a hefty pay out voucher, I wouldnt feel the need to tip this particular attendant. God knows where the money ends up, and who really gets it anyways. PMM2008
