$20 Dollar Trick Las Vegas Room Upgrades

Not everywhere in Vegas offers the same odds to bag a room upgrade using the $20 dollar trick. Here’s how we rate the major Vegas casino hotels, with your percentage odds of a room upgrade, based on field reports from our Vegas Insiders.

How to do the $20 Dollar Trick?

20-dollar-trick-vegasWhen checking into your Las Vegas hotel put $20 dollars between your credit card and ID and hand it over to the clerk on check-in. Ask the clerk whether they have any “complimentary upgrades” available.

They will put the $20 dollars on top of their keyboard and try their best to get you an upgrade. Which can be an upgrade to a suite, resort fee waived, strip views and much much more!

Does the $20 Trick Work in Vegas 2016?

Yes, steps are below!

  • On check-in discretely put $20 between ID and Credit Card
  • Ask the clerk for any “complimentary upgrades”
  • Be polite and hope for an upgrade!

Front Desk Tip allows users like you to review what happened when they used the $20 dollar trick and what you were able to get (although at times, holiday weekends, there won’t be anything available and the clerk will return your $20).

Getting ready for Las Vegas? We recommend you brush up on your gambling skills (and also gamble responsibly). You can play a free blackjack game with real Las Vegas blackjack rules.

If you are traveling to Las Vegas, we recommend users use Uber & Lyft in Las Vegas. It’s a cheaper way to get around Las Vegas.
