    If you think this is a good deal by Laughlin standards it's not. The Pioneer is rated as the worst hotel in all of Laughlin, and if this dump can't at least comp a couple of free nights like all the other places do, it isn't saying much for the place.

    All the places I have played rated in Laughlin have offered me free rooms. The Riverside has offered me free flight and room packages. All the places except for the Riverside, I didn't give any machine play, just blackjack. I have stayed at Aquarius and Golden Nugget on totally free room comps and had free room offers from Tropicana and Harrahs with only blackjack play. Speaking of Harrahs, just recently I received an offer for two night Sun-Thur free stay along with a dinning credit for Laughlin. I haven't played at Harrahs in Lauglin in over 3 years and then it was only for a couple of hours of blackjack.

    Machine play should earn much better comps than blackjack. I'm kind of curious what other comp offers you received?
    The Pioneer offer is not based on machine play. You don't have to play other than run the freeplay off. Anyone off the street can use it. Harrah's, Golden Nugget and Tropicana don't have any video poker worth playing to get free rooms. You're better off paying for them. But December is coming up which is the slowest month in Laughlin. Most places practically give the rooms away. The Pioneer offer is open to everyone.

    So far the Riverside is the only place that's sent me anything and it's not much, $20 freeplay for December. And I ran a 20K wager. I guess they think that will get me to bite. They sent me their King of Clubs Newsletter. They want me to "Go Green." That is, receive all the offers by email. But when I click on the link it won't open.

    I don't think the Riverside ever sent me anything in the mail. Their offers were all by phone or I called them. The Riverside gives good comps for meals. I usually earn enough playing there to cover my meals there.

    I think some of the other casinos send out offers quarterly. I know Aquarius is still sending me room offers, but I tossed them all. You will probably get something from them in the mail. I found it difficult to earn any comps toward a meal there.

    How ironic that the first piece of mail I get from Laughlin is from CET. They sent me another free 4-day flight/hotel package from Montana to Laughlin in January. I'm laughing because I ran just an $800 wager with them on the initial trip. That's an average of $200 a day. I guess it might take awhile for their computer to catch up with it. Anyways, I don't think I'll be using it.

    Yesterday I got an automated call from Riverside/Laughlin offering a free 3-day flight hotel package in January. They use the same airline as Harrah's/Laughlin, Sun Country. Since I now know they will fly me in for free I went to their website and looked at all the towns they fly from. I might be able to work it where I don't necessarily have to fly from Montana but can fly from any of the towns when I feel like it. They cover the west, midwest, and southwest so I might be able to just check the schedules of each town then give them a call and book it. I would just leave my car at the airport until I get back.

    I remember I ran a 20K wager. Midwest Player do you know how much wager you have to run to keep the free flight/hotel packages coming?
