I got moolah, Oh la la!
I've been working with this hotel (with Casino) for almost 2 years and I have never witnessed a gambler/player who keeps hitting the jackpot for 9th time playing the same slot machine. Yep, you read it right, 9 times! And for that 9th times, she had given me tip for 9 times too, yay!! I felt so lucky! But of course, no one has never been luckier that night except the winner, the "60ish", Ms. Barbie. She is such a sweet old lady. She has been telling me "for you little girl" every time she gave me her tip but the truth is, she is a lot smaller than me, lol!
I seldom get tips in the Front Desk because I don't deal with Casino players but once in a while I'd get tips from our VIP players. I used to have a regular guest who will give me a couple of bucks for checking him out after he called before he left his room so that when he comes to the desk all he has to do is to affix his signature. It makes me uncomfortable every time he checks out so one morning, I suggested it to him to better fill out the praising coupon found in the coupon book that had given to him together with the room key card when he checked in. He agreed. Since then, I often times get praising coupon from him.
Oh, by the way, the winner played Keno which is like a Lotto in the Philippines. It looks like this:
Ms. Barbie said that the number combination she used was hers and her mom's birthdays. Hmm, sounds familiar! She said she had been gambling for 13 years and it was her first very first time hitting the jackpot for 9th times in a row.
Thank you for the gratuity Ms. Barbie!
