Dressing up at the bar and treating yourself to a martini, a long drink or a cocktail before heading to the roulette table – that’s reality in German casinos. Usually there is a bar where you can order drinks or waiters even accept orders at the gambling tables. Although, unlike in American casinos, there are no free alcoholic drinks, visitors usually receive a consumption voucher with a free drink when they arrive.

In Las Vegas drinks are mostly free

The situation looks different in gambling halls. These establishments are operated by private individuals under state concession and have been subject to a strict alcohol ban since 1985. This regulation is to make sure that the players always keep a "clear mind" and do not spend their money while drinking to much alcohol.

Dresscode in a casino: What should you wear?

In Las Vegas, for example, a man had lost over half a million dollars within 17 hours and about 20 drinks. After curing his hangover, he went to a lawyer. He wanted to sue the casino and demanded his money back because the staff let him play insanity.
