I'm 45 so I don't think I'm that old nor am I really cool either. I think they gave me the slot tourney offer because it was a slow time and they were probably making it up with the mandatory room charge of three nights. The room charge for the three nights was more than I normally pay at March Break.
I didn't end up going so we missed each other. I wrote about the offer in this thread.
Ahh yes, I remember MR. TournamentQueen involved in that thread.
I also remember thinking 10k for first seemed low, and I don't remember cash being an option or first only paying 10k (perhaps they give 50% if you choose cash over free play(I wouldn't even think about doing that).
