Olympic gold medalist and failed reality star Ryan Lochte still has tons of cash -- or maybe just sucks at math -- because he just dropped a 200% tip at an expensive Las Vegas steakhouse ... TMZ has learned.

Sources at Andiamo Italian Steakhouse in the D Casino & Hotel tell us, Lochte stopped by with a bunch of dudes Wednesday night and ran up a $314 tab -- on top of which Lochte added gratuity of $606, for a grand total of $920.

We're told Ryan -- whose reality show "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" was canceled after one season -- asked all the waiters to split up the ridiculously generous tip evenly.

But we know ... you're still wondering why Lochte's pockets are so damn fat?

Our sources say he had just won big at the roulette table before dinner and was feeling pretty flush. Ain't no money like house money!

I'm more inclined to believe that he can't count. This guy is dumb as a box of rocks!

He signed the ticket to charge to his room. That's a $920 tip!

If you're a really good person, I don't know why you need proof for all of the attention. When I do something good I don't need to brag or show it off to the world. That's just my little opinion on all celebs and people who do that!

I think he got confuse, and thought that the 100 bills on the right were 10's....

He comes off as such an airhead. Can he even form complete sentences?

It's tacky to brag about leaving a $920 tip but what's really surprising is that the bill is so low. A bunch of dudes at Andiamo and the bill is only $300? Only four entrees, so someone in the group is just a poser.

Expensive steakhouse? 300$ between 5 is not exactly expensive. Ever had Kobe or Hanu beef?

This guy is a dumb as a box of rocks. In ten years no one will know who he is. He will be coaching community college swimming for 35k a yr.
