I play there 4-6 X a year, not twice a week. And the $5 FP offers I receive was not the point, its that they have a widespread reputation amongst players that I know in the region of being bad on food and room comps, certainly compared to Vegas casinos.



I misread your post, sorry. Still don't know why they don't like your action.

I always wonder how much comps people expect to get for their play.

For table game players I usually tell them to figure whatever your average bet is, take 30% of that for every hour you play.

If you average $100 a hand and play for three hours, I would expect about $30 an hour in comps or about $90 for that 3 hours. That would include room offers, food offers, and free play offers. If you are getting more than $30 an hour you are doing well.

If you are a quarter single hand video poker play that plays very fast at $1.25 a hand I would expect about $10 an hour in comps.

This is one of the most remote casinos. I'm impressed that some of yall travel to this casino.

Maybe, yall get free airline tickets?

It's the closest casino to Charlotte, Atlanta, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Greenville, Columbia... Not to say it's close, but it's the closest one. It was about a 3 hour drive door to door for me when I lived in SC. I'm surprised that their reaction now that I've moved is to just stop sending me offers rather than sending bigger offers or sending junket info like Laughlin & Reno do.

No airline tickets, it is not possible to fly to Cherokee, NC. And the roads are twisty windy - the last 20 miles (from all directions) are two lane roads through the mountains.

If you needed a casino for a movie at which everyone is stranded (due to a snowstorm, or something) then Harrah's Cherokee would be it. "Murder by BJ" or something like that.

Room prices and table minimums are two of the main problems when there is not any competition.

Thank you to all that have convinced me not to go to Cherokee! I assume Murphy is just as bad?

Same people, slightly smaller, same issues.

Sounds interesting. Geographical remoteness kills the players themselves, not just their economic chances. Monopolies hurt the players.
