Just got my freeplay notice for November. Red Rock reduced me from $40 in October, twice a week, to $30 in November twice a week. In September it was $45 twice a week.

A funny thing happened a week ago. I had $5 free play and played 6/5 5-cent bonus. Had to seed the machine with $1 cash.

Made some hits and got up to $20. Switched to 25-cent bonus and got several nice pays including quad 3s twice. Then hit a $1,000 royal.

Good things can happen with $5 freeplay and $1 seed money.

I've twice gotten bottom line 4OAK on JOB 100 Play while using Free Play.

If you can hit a Royal on hand 64,819, then you can hit a Royal on hand one.

Which, really, is some number much higher than that lifetime...but you get the idea.

I play very little machines. The free play has always been a minimum amount because I play craps. Red Rock before the pandemic gave me $75 free bets at craps once a week.

Before the pandemic my machine free play was never more than $50.

I think it was a token gesture.

I got a mailer today that says if I show up during certain days of next month, they'll add 500 points ($5 in points!) to my players' card. If I'm not broke by then, I could upgrade my card and get a couple slices of pizza. I have to get there before midnight to redeem the offer because the promotions department shuts down their computers at midnight. The other morning, all the kiosks where you can check your points were out of order. If I'm playing after midnight, the points don't really get added to my account until after I've left which would mean they get added on the next business day.
But hey, $5 in points means I've gambled an extra $3,000; times 4 times in a month it'd be $20 in points and $12,000 extra gambled.

Now do that on twenty different cards and you'll become feared. Or is it fierce?

Sounds like Rivers casino. Their system has that terrible midnight restriction. At least the one in PA does.
