Best Bar Top Video Poker for Beer Drinkers

There’s a lot to love about Las Vegas but getting freebies might be everyone’s favorite – even if the freebies aren’t technically “free”. Those complimentary drinks you receive while playing slot machines or blackjack in Las Vegas aren’t exactly free. You’ll only receive those drinks if you’re spending money.
