It's starts out with "We'd love to hear your thoughts"...

Here's the rest...

We've noticed you haven't
taken advantage of the exclusive offers
we've sent your way.

We want to make sure that we're
offering guests like you what you want. In order to
help us improve, we would like to ask you
a quick question.

Then it wants to know what your reason is with multiple choice questions (it won't let me see the questions again as I already sent it in). But it gave answers like...

-You don't go to Vegas any more

-You are going to a different casino

-You have never seen any offers

Etc.

My wife and I have typically found the Venetian/Palazzo to be less tight fisted on their offers (and also get offers occasionally from the Cosmopolitan). The Wynn pissed me off years ago by their stinginess in regards to comps. Then when they went to 2x craps, it was over for me. I'm guessing their business is down?

I think it's just that business models are changing for companies all over the world, especially in the U.S., because a lot of major things have happened causing a lot of economic shift. There was 9/11, 2008, politics going crazy for the last decade or so, and generational shifts (baby boomers retiring, millennials up and coming).

Or maybe Wynn just sucks, I don't know...haha...I'm not an economist.

Gambling, in general, is just going to get worse and worse for them. Most of the casinos have already shifted in to the "entertainment" business instead of just being casinos. Over "the long run" people will learn the hard way that you don't win in casinos. Combine that with casinos less offers, tighter and higher house edge games (6:5, reduced craps odds, etc) and players aren't going to give you their business. A lot of the casinos, in an attempt to 'standardize for them all' make a lot of these changes around the same time to try to force these new conditions on the public... but guess what? The public doesn't always just take it lying down. Do all of these things and watch players stop playing, then they tighten up and make even worse rules to try to recoup the lost money which is just a negative downward spiral of idiocy. Casinos have shifted their mentality from sheer a sheep many times to only skin them once, and it's going to bite them in their own butts.

I feel like in 100 years gambling at casinos will just be a shade of what it used to be (which can basically be said already today).
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
