if i only play live blackjack and video blackjack and live poker and a few plus EV slots when plays are found lit up that ive learned over the past, which casino would be the easiest to get a lot of comp dollars to spend on rooms or free rooms or no resort fee rooms at for a much longer stay than 2-3 nights? its not safe staying at hotels that arent in casinos.

would it be the peppermill, the atlantis, the GSR, the eldorado properties, or some other place? maybe even in tahoe? im wondering how to earn like 25 nites a month. i know in some places around the US people have lived in casino hotels for years basically, but not sure the easiest way to do it or where. except for coushatta in louisiana. they will give u rooms constantly. but the live poker sucks horrible there.

I would think this could be done pretty easily in Laughlin. Minimal play in any of their casinos seems to generate free room offers. Can't help you with Reno. There are also several weekly hotels in town that are much cleaner and safer than the ones in Vegas. Laughlin/Bullhead has a much finer underclass than Vegas does.

Looking for 25 free nights off of play? Thatís a lot. I donít recommend Elderado or Silver Legacy as they are Caesarís properties. I play at the Nugget in Sparks, the rooms are very nice and only cost $39 midweek. If you play high, get a host and they can work something out. Our PM me and I can get you set up with the host assuming your play is above avg. FYIÖ.itís not that hard to obtain the very top level there, Iím on pace to do it in 3 weeks. The reset on the players award was the 1st of April, you only need 40k points, Iím about 12k short.

Oh by the way, if you play live poker, the Atlantis Poker room gives you $3 per hour on live play. Use to be $4 until the pandemic hit. They spread $1-2 NL daily and $4-8 limit hold Ďem. Lots of donkeys play there, Iím one of them

weekly hotels in laughlin or reno? laughlin only has 1 weekly motel (rest are in arizona) and they wont rent to people without proof of income, unlike most motels. so its only the casinos. usually theyre not too expensive but still have resort fees. reno im curious which weekly motels u consider safe.

real reason i have little interest in laughlin is the poker there for $1-2 NL and up sucks horribly compared to reno

was in there yesterday to play stud8. the pots are small not only in stud8 but also in the NL. people buyin much deeper at the GSR or Peppermill. also the atlantis quit doing any type of room offers for poker players. years ago they had rooms at times.

that $39 would be closer to $80 once resort fees and taxes are added. and Uber from sparks to atlantis or peppermill (for poker) is more all the way out in sparks. my host there is Bianca. i get 3 nites twice per month, and im able to use most weekends.

if im mainly playing a machine paying back a little over 98.5% how much do i need to run thru it to even a highest level card? i was on the bottom level being gone for 2 years and now im on level 3. (forget what its called) i think theres 5 levels, so 2 more levels above me. not the number of points but the estimated loss total in dollars to earn it.

id play more live blackjack since the 3-2 6 deck is dealt out 90% of the shoe, but dont want to be discovered i can count. plus its usually way too many people on the table. they never banned me for counting like 3 others have in reno because i hide it by doing plays which arent too wise.

Weekly hotels in Reno are pretty expensive since we have a lot of contractors from out of town occupying them. Resort fees can easily be waived by the host if you decide to pay for a room. Only $3 for a day pass on the bus. Transit station is right across the street from Nugget. Lincoln line is an express to downtown runs every 10-20 minutes every day. Takes 12 minutes. Or you can take the Nugget airport shuttle and transfer to the Atlantis or Peppermill airport shuttle for free. Nugget is only 7 minutes to RNO. There is a direct line you can take on the bus from Nugget to Atlantis. Uber or Lyft and cabs are a rip off, refuse to take em unless itís a last resort. I either ride my motorcycle, walk or take the transit or shuttles. I donít own a car.

Stud is NOT a popular game and is not a regular spread game at the Atlantis. No Limit, there are bad and great games. Just donít play during the day. Swing from 6-midnight is good on Fri and Sat night.

Does Club Cal-Neva still have a hotel? I bet it's cheap. I think one of their hotels they offloaded to Siegal Suites. But it's an interior-corridor place. Might be nice. Downtown Reno seems to have some decent housing and maybe even some decent motels in okay neighborhoods. Like everywhere else getting more expensive but not crazy-crazy like some coastal places.

THE ROW downtown is a great value proposition with a little machine play. Try to make Diamond on VBJ or VP or slots ;). You will get waived resort fees and probably a ton of comped nights. Or you can use your reward dollars for rooms and food. Silver Legacy has nice rooms. Eldorado is being renovated, too. Never stayed in Circus Circus but I think they almost give those rooms away. Silver Legacy has a very underrated poker room as well.

Whats the best poker room in Reno, now? Atlantis, GSR, Peppermill, or SL? I think I would say Peppermill for promos and action. That's another good place to play for rooms/comps. They don't give much in cashback, though the monhtly bounceback offer can be good. Tons of slot tournaments, too.

I find the public transport in Reno to be quite decent. The 1 Virginia Street rapid bus is pretty good. And the free airport shuttles are nice, and frequent. A bike would actually be great for getting between the Pepp, Atlantis, Downtown, and even GSR/Nugget.

As far the numbers of live poker games, Peppermill. As far as best action can be debatable. Could be SL. BUT for value and best promos, Atlantis Poker room, not even close. One negative moving from Vegas to Reno is definitely the lack of live poker action. Definitely miss that but the games are pretty soft up here.

using a bus, especially at night in the really sketchy bus stops on both sides of the street from the Peppermill is definitely a NO when ill usually have between 1k and 3k on me. i cant ever go there without being asked for money by a guy whose homeless and looks drunk or high and apt to become violent at any second. its only safe during daylight hours.

u also cant use the shuttle without a suitcase or u get questioned to death and not believed. i did that a few times years ago and gave up.

Peppermill never comps poker players and gives almost nothing to VP or VBJ players. i know because in years past id lose 500-1000 and not get rooms. they only comp video reel slot players. or maybe it was just because VBali the host seen my blog post where i speculated he might be gay, but i doubt he seen that and is the reason.

the vbj in all the eldorado Row properties does NOT pay 3-2 its interblock, no casino wizard, and its all 6-5. i suppose its still much better than reel slots to earn the 15k tier needed for diamond. live table BJ is good there and that could earn tier points too. i used to have a high level card there.

Majority of places comps rooms to anyone who meets play limits, including all those you listed. My guess is two to four hours on table games with a $100 average bet, or $10k on video blackjack / slots should cover most nights.

One good strategy is just to call a host ask how much is needed for a room comp; or tell them what you plan to play and if that will be enough. Can call everywhere and go to whomever gives you the best answers.

anyone whose had any funny experiences with atlantis on comps, or ever heard the phrase "assigned to steve winkoff" (no idea of the spelling), please let me know. seems theyre fine with me playing, playing and counting for hours straight, and still earning comps on machines, but im considered an AP and that is what the phrase 'assigned to steve winkoff" means. its their terminology for it. so i get no room comps of any kind or mailers except for what i can earn in other comp dollars i can apply towards the room.

i only found this out when i checked out today and went to talk to a host. and a guy was also at my table of $50 min bet using no cover at all, and they let him sit and count all nite. weird. maybe it was because once when he went to a much bigger bet of 3 hands from 1 hand, it was still at minus 2 but after a shitload of small cards.

Atlantis Poker use to comp players free rooms after 10 hrs of play. Now they only offer casino rate after 10 hrs of play, horrible. But they give you $3 per hr in comp dollars on live play with best poker promotions in Reno.
