While PA is clearly ahead of NJ now in gaming, the amount ahead is not as vast as you might think (about 15%). PA is where Atlantic City was last year. Now PA is starting to drop as the slots are not doing as well.

Who says AC casino hotels don't offer good and free room deals anymore?

Here's one of them:

Forget about the temporarily defunct Revel! Go for GN. It offers 3 free nights per week!

Hmm... I wonder if another AC casino will beat GN's offer, i.e., Borgata, Harrah's, or Tropicana, etc... perhaps?

BTW, GN pops up its winnings by 78% (see below for details). Could the excellent perks (i.e., free rooms) be one of the reasons for the 78% increase?
I'm OK with Corps which pick and choose clienteles. Both insurance companies and casinos have the right to pick and choose customers. They may keep profitable ones and kicked out the rest. But, I'm not OK with a casino supervisor who says counting cards... is like stealing food from a buffet (a foodlifting offense), or video-taping a movie in a cinema (a piracy offense).

I saw that. I'm happy for them. Golden Nugget marketing seems to be working with their card matching one tier status higher, targeting the over 50 crowd with specials during the week and great live music in their lounges and great Happy Hours at most restaurants 5 nights a week. The deck in the summer is a lot of fun with live music. They are generous with their comped show tickets, I've seen some really great shows this year. They've done a great job in their room renovations, clean and modern. Still a little stingy with their Saturday night comps though. Many of the things we've been asking an Atlantic City casino to do, they've done.

"One tier higher" at the Golden Nugget is like two tiers lower at a real resort

Hey, you should be the spokesperson for AC players. When MrsHearRn speaks, GN listens:-)

The truth of the tasting is in the pudding. Regardless of "tiers" (i.e., Taj's black vs GN's black), GN offers a free room for 3 nights and the $5 lunch buffet. No Taj nor other AC casinos can beat GN's perks/offers right now.

Tropicana does this and has for at least the last year and a half (and year round).
And its fairly easy to get more than 3 nights a week lots of the year if you play while you are there and request it (especially in the offseason).

When? Sunday-Thursday? Yeah, them or many of the casinos in Vegas or any of the other casinos in AC (except maybe Borgata) or any other casinos anywhere in the country.

My friends play all over AC and their offers from the other casinos are almost always better than GN when it comes to rooms and food. On top of that, the GN buffet really isn't very good.

They do, however, have the best hot tub / fire pit area in AC--- which is kind of weird since they're definitely known as an older crowd casino.
