Thread: July 4th Promos?

  1. #1
    The only promo of which I'm aware is Boyd's 6X points for video poker and 15X for penny slots. If anyone is aware of any comp or food promotions, please let me know.

  2. #2
    I don't see anything exciting.

    Boyd (7 locations) has 15x pennies/11x slots/6x vp every Tuesday in July. Aliante usually has holiday multipliers, but I don't see anything for the 4th. Canneries have their usual Tuesday gift promo -- earn points to receive iced tea.

    Stations/Fiestas/Palms has 10x slots/6x vp & tables every Tuesday in July.

    The D has 5x slots, probably including vp, for the holiday.

    Silver Sevens is advertising 21x for the holiday.

    Silverton has 10x slots for the holiday, reels only (vp excluded).

    Rampart for the holiday has a Pepsi giveaway: 100 pts for a 6-pack, limit 3. Plus the usual senior Tuesday promos for age 50+.

    Both Arizona Charlie's locations have holiday hot seats for slot players, but prizes are only $50 for the base-level slot card. Also through July 9th is a cooler bag giveaway for 2000 points earned.

    South Point is giving away copper pans on weekdays throughout the month. The week including the 4th, you can receive an 8" fry pan for 1250 points earned.

    M Resort has its usual senior promos on Tuesdays.

    Thanks, bocce. God, most of these are lame. I was checking the www.bconnectedonline stuff for Boyd, and they are trying to draw people into a casino with a mason jar giveaway in July?? Yowza, times are hard.

    Well, I'll do the Boyd stuff on the 4th and for senior day on the 5th, but other than that, it'll be strictly work. If anybody else has any leads, let me know.

    True. Many of the giveaways have very reasonable requirements, but once you've earned the necessary few hundred points, there's no incentive to continue playing.

    Sam's Town and Suncoast have a new Monday promo this month called Sweet Scoops. Earn points for a kiosk swipe to win an unknown prize, then swipe again up to three times total as you achieve each point requirement. Sounds great, except the point thresholds are only 10, 50 and 100 -- which means the prizes will be pitiful.

    The Canneries run a lot of kiosk swipe promos. Usually the point levels are 5, 150 and 300. Prizes are mostly drawing entries, and I think the best I've seen was $5 in either freeplay or points.

    "Most" of these are lame? I'm having a tough time finding one that isn't lame...

    The Boyd point multiplier is limited at all properties except suncoast, and they only have shit games AFAIK.

    Rampart -- 100 pts ($200 coin in on VP) for a 6 pack of Pepsi isn't bad. At least you can do it 3 times.

    I don't really cook or know specifically what a "fry pan" is, but that doesn't seem too bad either.


    Not that these two aren't lame, because they absolutely are lame....these 2 are just the least lame from what I can see. Unless you're already there, no point in going to any of these places for those promos.

    Here's the South Point promo:

    http://southpointcasino.com/casino/s...azy-for-copper



    It doesn't excite me, but I'm only mildly enthusiastic for copper.

    The end-of-month bonus gift costs $59.99 at Bloodbath and Beyond:

    More news from South Point. Now this is how you do a hot seat promo:

    Except I'm not sure "midnite" is a word. Is "midnite" a word?

    As far as cookware gifts from casinos those pans aren't too bad at all. Usually the ones I've seen in offers are stuff I'd be afraid to cook in.
    I'd go one of those days to get one of those if that was my local just to try copper.

    Those are two pretty decent promos. I won't have time to get out to South Point, but they are worthwhile.

    What is truly lame is watching you people actually going gaga over these silly "giveaways". Six packs of Pepsi, copper pans, menial free play and extra points? C'mon....you're making the great grandmothers on vpfree look like high rollers!

    Redietz, you are a true wonder.

  11. #11
    The suckers will lose far more then these promo items cost the casinos. They get these things for pennies on the dollar.

    Rob, you're beautiful. To get you to make another asinine "I'm so upper class" comment, I had to decide whether to (A) announce I was staying at Main Street Station or (B) agree that the copper pots were an alright promo. I took a stab at (B).

    C'mon, Rob, tell us what a high roller you are and how the rest of us are peons. My friend, Tony Stark, loves you. Don't be shy.

    Well yeah and that's why most promos suck.
    I'm on mailing lists for tons of places I've popped in on my travels. I looked through the pile of junk mail after reading and commenting on this post earlier. I have one offer for weekly pieces of ridiculously cheap looking cloth luggage. The Cleveland casino that used to be TR has weekly Sharper Image gadgets.
    Neither are items that would prompt me to make a trip. If I ended up happening to be there on one of those days I don't even know that I would bother to pick them up because they're junk I don't want. But I have no doubt that people will be lined up spending way more money than they're worth earning the points to get them.

    In general, gift promos at casinos suck. Even the ones which appear to be good (such as computer giveaways) tend to suck, as you get the lowest end crap.

    There are rare exceptions to this, but this is usually the rule, especially when it involves promotions open to everyone (rather than invite).

    I remember in 2008, Arizona Charlie's had a paper shredder promotion. I needed a paper shredder, so I went down there. I was disappointed to find out that they were out of the shredders, and I had wasted my time.

    I got back home and visited my friend later that day, who had gotten there earlier and received the shredder.

    He showed it to me.



    LOL!!!!

    That's not exactly what I pictured.

    It's worth $10, by the way.

    Jesus, that shredder was bad. I am still trying to figure out how Boyd thinks mason jars make a good casino lure. I'm as big a fan of mason jars as anyone; Cracker Barrel used them for drinks back in the day. But what casino exec would say, "Hey, let's offer the rubes mason jars?"

    Here's the #1 rule for all comps and offers: they will never be worth the money you ate expected to lose. So any advantage player who uses comps and offers to figure they have a profit is fooling himself.

    Yes jbjb comps and offers are part of the big lie for so called advantage play. I'm glad you recognized it's part of the big lie.

    By the way, don't underestimate the buying power of the casinos to get gift items. For the 4th of July Caesars Palace gave beach glasses that float or can be put in the sand as gifts. Retail price is $9.95 each from the manufacturer's website. Caesars gave two to each invited guest. I'm guessing Caesars made a special deal with the company because the style Caesars gave as gifts was marked as sold out on the company's website. It wouldn't surprise me if Caesars paid $3.00 each for the $9.95 retail item. They were given in a generic gift bag that can be bought for 25-cents each. There was no printing on the gift bag so it was the cheapest gift wrapping possible.

    Mason jars? Like people use to can produce? In Nevada in July? That's hilarious.

    For awhile Mason Jars were getting scarce, now they are plentiful and sold at Walmart/etc. Its not as freaky an item as one might think. very popular.

    Its rare for any casino to really offer something that would alter a gambler's destination. Its more to get them in earlier or to tip their decision making process. Even for those popular mason jars its just a bonus, not something to get them to trek to that location if they were not already considering it.

    Yeah, some players do. I don't count them. The only thing I consider at tax time is cash wins/losses from actual play. Not free gifts. It's very rare that there is an item that's worthwhile for me to play for. Even so, I don't count the item as winnings.
