Heard Hendertucky many times. Lived in Henderson for a few months or so when I first moved to Vegas.


Speaking of great promotions, here's a full list of some really good promotions I'm playing right now:

At my local casino, do $500 coin in and get $100 Macy's gift card.





But seriously, I think The M has some deal where if you do like $1k or $1.5k coin in you get a free buffet, or 2 hours rated on tables.

I live in Henderson and have never heard the term, but I'm far from downtown.
By the way, I recently did a guided tour of historic Henderson and was surprised to learn all those mobile home looking houses were built as temporary housing for workers during WW2 and had an expected useful expectancy of about twenty years. That was sixty years ago.
The three casinos on Water St. cater to a local, older crowd. They take good care of them.

I live in Henderson and have never heard the term...

From Google search:
About 9,470 results
Urban Dictionary: Hendertuckey
The part of Henderson, Nevada that is populated by white trash and hillbillies.
Parody: Hendertucky « 98.5 KLUC Las Vegas
Yet, it is still referred to, by locals in Las Vegas and Summerlin, as “Hendertucky.”.
Hendertucky - Henderson - City | Facebook
Henderson – It Ain't Hendertucky No More!
When I moved here in 1997, Henderson was nicknamed “Hendertucky”. Â I honestly don't know why but maybe

This is just to prove that I didn't make it up.
Nor did I make up "Tray Lizard" for "Cocktail Waitress" even though I will admit Paco was unable to find any references to Tray Lizard use amongst craps players.

I believe you, I've just never heard the term before. Much of "Old Henderson" reminds me of some Long Island beach communities, that forty years ago were summer bungalow colonies that now are lived in year round. I live in literally the first block of Henderson. To the west and north of me are horse properties and million dollar homes. Those folks probably look at my complex as a slum.

Such is the reputation of Kentucky that the, "Tucky," suffix gets thrown on anything considered, "White Trash."

Another example of this would be the areas of PA known as Pennsyltucky, which, to the best of my knowledge, can be slapped on most areas in rural PA.

While no one is actually likely to reveal their best plays on public forum, what might be interesting is if people were willing to divulge dead promos they played that happened in relatively recent times, e.g. the Mohegan Sun Triple Down BJ Promo that happened like 6-7 years back. This was, unfortunately, just before my time, lol. But such examples might give hope that the "good promos" are not a thing of the past. Gets boring hearing about 2 for 1 senior buffet promos ad nauseum :-P.

Loss Rebates over $1,000 are available at some casinos (new players only, or...also for any player once every X days).

Occasional promotion. For $250 coin-in (slots) or $500 coin-in (VP) to qualify for whole day, possible to win many prizes, EV $100+.
Prizes are $50 or less, so unlikely (<1.5%) to win nothing (not weighted on big prizes). It's a 22-45% edge.

IMO people will keep the best promotions quiet...

Perhaps. But then again, APs are essentially competing with each other. I got no problem with sharing information in the proper setting, but doing so in public (IMO and I think most others) is more harmful to APs as a whole and individually.

Sharing stories is fun and all, but even things that happened in the past can and do have relevance to current or future plays. Even stupid things casinos did back in the day where one might think "oh casinos don't have coin droppers anymore (for the most part), that promotion is never gonna be run again!" or something of that nature.....another promotion can come up that's similar enough to "whatever" that previous promotion was.....and then other APs or perhaps the casino starts doing some extra thinking and they're like "this is basically the same thing / very similar to what casino X ran years ago...."
