Birthday Freebies In Las Vegas – Where To Get Free Stuff On Your Birthday In Las Vegas (Vegas Hacks)

Birthday freebies in Las Vegas –

Where to get free stuff on your birthday in Las Vegas

Las Vegas caters to party-goers. Many people who travel to Las Vegas are celebrating a wedding, anniversary or birthday.

Thus, it makes sense that you should be able to benefit from several Las Vegas birthday freebies.

Any list of birthday promotions in Las Vegas will be incomplete and inaccurate because promotions change and because there are so many casinos, hotels, restaurants, and attractions in Las Vegas. Also, some businesses have temporarily or permanently ended their free birthday gifts due to the pandemic.

To avoid disappointment, you should call ahead to ensure that the free birthday promotions are still available before going. Since re-opening after the pandemic, most restaurants require a reservation, so if you call to book a reservation, you can kill two birds with one stone.

To ensure you don’t miss out on any free stuff on your birthday in Las Vegas, the best strategy is to mention the fact that it is your birthday everywhere you go. You might get a free upgrade from your hotel, free play or a gift from the casino players club, or a free menu item or dessert from restaurants and bars.

Please keep in mind that, to take advantage of many of these birthday freebies in Las Vegas, you will have to sign up for an e-mail list or rewards club at least one week (sometimes up to one month) before your birthday. You might as well start signing up for the Las Vegas birthday offers that interest you now.

Also, some of these birthday promotions are only available on the date of your birthday by showing your ID for proof.

You can click on most of the business names and you will be directed to their website for more information or to sign up.

Please support these generous businesses by purchasing other items in addition to your free item.

We have organized the list by type of birthday reward as well as alphabetically for ease of reference.

We hope the list below saves you some money.

Free Birthday Alcohol and Shots:

I have been told that often strangers in a Las Vegas bar or lounge will buy you drinks if your server or friends announce it is your birthday, but we are not bold enough to try it. We’d rather get one on the house.

Bin 702 (Downtown): Free drink during the week of your birthday for members of the loyalty club.

Diablos (Luxor) – Free shot on your actual birthday.

Gambling Birthday Promotions and Freeplay:

These are (or were) probably the best birthday freebies you can get in Las Vegas. You can turn the Freeplay into much more money if you are lucky. You can get them all on your birthday – even multiple promotions at different Caesars or MGM properties.

Someone posted in a comment below that MLife stopped giving birthday FreePlay as of April 15, 2021 and that most of the other casinos (except Ellis Island) no longer offer FreePlay. Another person told me that MGM properties only offer freeplay for birthdays if they send you an email. Thus, you might want to call ahead to ask.  We are not sure if the birthday FreePlay promotions are temporarily suspended or permanently ended.

Aria – Freeplay with MLife Card if a guest in the hotel. Someone posted this month they got $100 in Freeplay when they checked in because it was their birthday.

El Cortez – Freeplay during your birth month.

Ellis Island – $10 FreePlay on your actual birthday.

Excalibur – $20 FreePlay with an MLife Card within 1 week of your birthday.

Luxor – $20 FreePlay with an MLife Card or free spin on giant wheel with prizes within 1 week of your birthday.

MGM Grand – $25 FreePlay with an MLife Card within 1 week of your birthday. Even though freeplay is not currently available (as of January 2022), someone posted on January 26, 2022 that they received a $50 food and beverage credit at check-in when they informed the employee that it was their 50th birthday.

Orleans – Swipe your players club card for prizes.

Park MGM – $25 FreePlay with an MLife Card within 1 week of your birthday.

Plaza – Free desert at Oscar’s, free bingo card, and 25% off the room rate with ID.

Sahara – Free spin or scratch card from the Club 52 desk to win up to $500 in Freeplay on your actual birthday.

Silverton – Up to $40 FreePlay on your actual birthday.

Wynn – $10 FreePlay within 48 hours of your birthday (this might only be available for higher tier players).

Other Birthday Gifts and Promotions:

Apothecary Shoppe Dispensary – Free gift.

The Dispensary – Free preroll with any purchase.

Essence Dispensary – Free preroll with any purchase.

Harrah’s – Free deck of cards from players club desk.

Lion Habitat Ranch (Henderson, NV) – Free admission in your birth month.

Reaf – Free preroll with any purchase.

Sephora – Free lotion or body wash if registered for their online e-mail list / reward card.

The Top of Eiffel Tower Observation Deck used to give free admission on your actual birthday. We heard that this might not be available or could be seasonal, so we contacted them in January 2022 and they confirmed that they did not have any birthday promotions at that time.  It is still a great place to go for a good view of the Strip. If you can go just before dusk, you’ll get amazing views of the Las Vegas Strip and the Bellagio fountains in the daylight and at night with all the neon lights.


We see posts asking about birthday freebies quite frequently on Facebook. We hope these birthday gifts and birthday promotions in Las Vegas make your birthday in Las Vegas even better.

One final suggestion is to have a meal at Dick’s Last Resort in Excalibur on your birthday. Even though they have a VIP Club, I don’t think they give you anything free on your birthday. However, they will make you feel extra special and embarrassed and give you a birthday experience to remember.

If anything is no longer available or has changed or if anything is missing from the list, please let us know in the comments below.


Happy Travels (& Happy Birthday in advance),

Kevin & Tina

        I had my birthday the other day &&-16th.
        MLife properties stopped the birthday Freeplay on the 14th of this month!!!
        The one lady at Excalibur did put 10 on my card because she felt bad and she said that they sent a company wide memo, no explanation for stopping the birthday promo. But none of the properties in town did ANYTHING
        The only places I found were,
        AZ Charlie’s (either property, but I prefer boulder) ,, Ellis Island, and

        Klondike, – u have to be a member for at least 30 days,
        And club fortune.
        They are both in Henderson.
        I am local so I hit up every single casino in the county. I did not go to parumph.

        • Kevin Strong

          We are sorry and disappointed to hear this. Thank you for sharing. We’ll update the Las Vegas birthday freebies post with a warning in the free play section. We find that free birthday stuff promotions are very inconsistent and change quite frequently. It’s best to phone ahead.

          • Tim

            Fair warning, the I Love Sugar free cocktail on LINQ promonade is incorrect. Perhaps it is the wrong place but they told us they have never done that.

          • Kevin Strong

            Sorry about that. I have not been there personally, but a few people recently said they got a free cocktail there on their birthdays. I’ll remove it from the list of free things on your birthday so other people don’t waste their time. I hope many of the other Las Vegas birthday freebies were available to you.

      • Kevin Strong

        We definitely spent several days doing the research for this article about getting free stuff on your birthday in Las Vegas. If you can time it right, you’ll get some nice birthday freebies that save you some money.

      • Clifton B Goodson

        Currently in Vegas within a week of my wife’s birthday. Haven’t gotten any free play at any of the casinos we have been to.

        • Kevin Strong

          Thanks for the current information. I was afraid of that. I still hope they resume the birthday freeplay in Las Vegas someday soon.

    • Kevin Strong

      I did a lot of research on the best birthday freebies in Las Vegas. I wanted to include items that aren’t on most other blog posts and social media posts about the free things you can get in Las Vegas on your birthday. I hope it helps you one day.

      • Rebekah Charles

        Clearly Las Vegas is definitely the place to for so many things! I love all the birthday freebies suggestions you have mentioned. My bday is in September and I am really considering to visit because of all your post that have on Las Vegas. It sounds so fun! I am definitely adding Las Vegas to my bucket list.

        Thanks for sharing always.

        • Kevin Strong

          Might as well add to the celebration and save some money with some free stuff on your birthday in Las Vegas if you are going to be there near your birthday.
          The businesses must benefit overall from giving away the birthday freebies, so we don’t feel bad taking advantage of these birthday offers.

    • Kevin Strong

      Yes, they are also a thing in my hometown of Winnipeg. Many national restaurant chains offer birthday freebies in Las Vegas and all over North America.

  • delta 852

    Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done a extraordinary job!

    • Kevin Strong

      That is a good idea. People love to learn about birthday freebies and birthday promotion in their hometown. There are a lot of places to get free stuff on your birthday in Las Vegas.

  • Mr Barry A Till

    Clearly I need to arrive in Las Vegas a week before my birthday and enjoy all these freebies (after joining their mailing/loyalty lists as you suggest). I could feed myself for free for a week! Never thought of doing this and the temptation now I know about is too much to miss – I shall start planning for September !

    • Kevin Strong

      If you are going to be there within a week of your birthday, there are lots of birthday freebies in Las Vegas to enjoy. Saving money always feels good and you’ll feel special on your birthday.

    • Kevin Strong

      We are glad you found the Las Vegas birthday freebies post useful. I hope it helps you save money one day. Enjoy.

      • LaKisha E Key

        My birthday is May 28,2021 and where can I get any casino Freeplay or anything free at from now until my birthday in Las Vegas.

        • Kevin Strong

          Happy birthday. You will get great tips from this post about birthday freebies. Many birthday promotions are valid anytime in your birthday month. These are subject to change, so call ahead if you can. Unfortunately, some of the birthday freeplay might not be available at this time.

  • JoJo Hall

    Wow, I didn’t know there are so many places where you can get freebies for your birthday! Too bad my friend and I are going to Vegas in July and can’t take advantage of these places because none of our birthdays are in July.

    • Kevin Strong

      That’s okay. Maybe one year you will be there near your birthday so you can get some birthday freebies and promotions in your birth month.

  • Lady Di

    Yesterday was my birthday. Wildfire (station casinos) put &5 freeplay on my card, & Club Fortune gave me nothinb ! I’ve had a player’s club card for over 5 years and I live within walking distance and i gamble there at least once every 2 months. I’m alone and broke on my birthday , but I’m still glad to be alive and thankful for so many things….

    • Kevin Strong

      Thanks for the information. You are helping other people, which is kind. It seems that the casinos are being stingy with birthday freeplay right now, but I believe it will come back soon.

  • DEan Prince

    I was happy to discover this page. Thanks your time due to this wonderful read!! I enjoyed every bit of it and I have you saved to favourites to see new stuff on your website.

  • Amee

    Greetings! I’ve been following your website for a while and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascoscita Texas!
    Just wanted to tell you to keep up the fantastic work!

  • Brook

    Great website. Lots of useful information here. I am sending it to some friends and sharing . And thank you in your work!

  • Spencer

    Your content is excellent, but with more pics, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche. Really Superb blog!

  • Ricardo

    Hi! I would like to give you a huge thumbs up for the excellent info you have here on this post. I will come back to your blog for more.

  • Chelsea Virgilio

    Bally’s Buca no longer exists but there’s also one off the strip on Flamingo blvd, it’s the number one Buca location so go there for an amazing birthday dinner!

  • Ruth

    Thanks for sharing this kind of know-how. It’s nice to read this blog. I used to visit this blog often, especially when I was in Las Vegas.

  • Jeana

    Nice post. I stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!

  • Pam

    Headed to LV next month for a long weekend b-day trip. Looking forward to keepin my belly full with all the food/beverage freebies! Thanks

    • Kevin Strong

      I hope you have a great, fun, and safe trip. Mention it is your birthday everywhere you go and you never know what you might get. Unfortunately, some businesses have stopped giving birthday freebies in Las Vegas or have made it harder to get a freebie (ex. you have to sign up for a club a week or more in advance) and MGM casinos have suspended their birthday freeplay. It’s a good guess you’ll still get free dessert at most restaurants.
