Speaking of gift cards; why don't stores let you bundle your small cards into one big one? I have like 15 $25 Macy's cards and they wouldn't let me turn it into one.
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

Why wouldn't be good in a class II Machine?

If there are any AP's out there who refuse to play a what seems to be a juicy promo Just because it's a class ll machine feel free to pass the information among to me.



I'm not saying it definitely wouldn't, I'm just saying it wouldn't necessarily be in a jurisdiction with a low minimum permissible return. It probably still would be good, but I'm not going to say it's a lock.

I'd play it AND pass the info to you, you know that!

Processing, less of a pain just to use them all in one transaction.

In my local casino, they were "giving away" a $100 Macy's gift card. All you had to do was play $500 of your own money! No wonder people ended up begging a certain woman who wasn't playing with a player's card to let them put their player's card in her machine after they lost their money chasing the Macy's gift card! That's absurd when you think about it! You could have just saved your money and just BOUGHT a Macy's gift card or 5 of them yourself at a grocery store instead of having to earn it at a casino.


How long did you beg?
I heart Crystal Math.

The only way I see this as legit is if it was a promotion only for invited guests with a limit of 1. Would allow them to target and slightly reward those who they know will play far more than $500 through.

But it would be nice if Nathan stated which casino did this promo.

I noticed a website had a service to pay for their services with just about any gift card. How much credit you got depends on the card. Do any online casinos allow this?

Another website, if you sent a gift, the company would check the order, let them choose anything they wanted, and if the gift recipient chose something cheaper than you intended, they got the balance in a gift card. I wouldn't like this as a gift giver.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

Okay, well that one actually sucks because just the idea of an umbrella being $50 strikes me as objectively ridiculous.



I shared that thought until I first learned a couple weeks ago about the amazingly high quality umbrellas from Davek of NY.

see: Davek website

Starting at $49, and up to $350.

I'm ordering their "Solo" model as I like a collapsible umbrella of that size; a mini is too wide and a bit complicated, and a non-collapsible is too big to easily stow.

In mcallisters casino, we would have promotions where we give out grate clips gift cards/vouchers, since people who gamble with their haircut money would be a target market.

Idk. But they sure as hell swindle you online when you buy stuff. There's a limit of 5 per transaction. I had a few $100 cards, $25 cards, and some other random ones ($5, 10, maybe $50). It was a total pain to figure out all the stuff I wanted to get, then make separate transactions. It's not as simple as you'd think.


And FFS, would people please stop asking which casino runs this promotion? Not that a particularly lot of money can be made from this promotion (unless you can do it every day or can get multiple GC's at a time), but we should have some respect for the APs who may be playing this promotion or promotions like it.
