Milking casino free play doesn't last forever and my run of free play from the Boyd Casinos here in Vegas is now over. Over the last few months I've been playing only my free play... and it has been reduced month to month. During October I got $20 of free play on 9 days. I just got my offers for November and my free play was reduced to $5 per free play day.

It isn't worth driving the two miles and pulling into the free parking lot for $5 of free play.

Adios Boyd Gaming, however this was not unexpected. It just makes me wonder about claims of never ending steams of free play.

YOU GO NOW! YOU BE HERE FOR HOUR!

Even with all the marketing MBAs working there they will still notice someone milking the system. Although I still say If I lived in Vegas I might try to work a free play/bonus route as a side hustle.

Work other places for awhile, they will probably bring back offers.

Free play never ends if that's all you use? I suppose it could depend on how you define never using it. It's possible if you show up using services, even if not gambling a casino might send out an offer knowing you've been in the place.

I'm total, how much freeplay did you use without additional gambling over the months?

9×$20 in just September is $180. But you had freeplay for a few months before that, correct?

So how much freeplay in total?

Where are these claims of getting perpetual free-play without giving the casino any action?

If I bet $12,000 in the slot machines, I might get a card upgrade and a couple slices of pizza.
If I can bet $5,000 over 40 hours and profit 22 cents, surely I could bet $50K over 40(0) hours and win $2.20.
It's either 10 times the bet amounts or 10 times the hours.

The previous month it was $25 per visit and the month before that it was $40 per visit.

So I went from $40 to $25 to $20 to $5. There were 9 or 10 free play days per month.

So not counting the $5 days you had about $850 in freeplay.

You have the first puzzle solved. Only two more to go.

Pretty much: youíve got 2 + x = 4

Youíve just got to solve for x.

Thatís also not a bad drop off rate with nine pickups per each part of the cycle.
