My final free play for May:

Had $5 @ Suncoast, cashed out $2.50
Had $15 @ Red Rock, that got me $11.25

On to June. But I think that by September Suncoast will be back to $5 which I suspect is their minimum (I go to $10 in June) and Red Rock will be continuing at $10 which I suspect is their minimum for table game players. I drop to $10 starting June.

so you'r doing your own experiment of how long they'll give you freeplay without additional play?

If Alan and Mdawg were in the know they would be able to find out how long the freeplay lasts sans additional play without having to actually wait month after month.

Like literally they could find out today.

MDawg thinks he's the pro but can't figure this one out. Ridiculous!

Was going to ask you about this in PM but can't send it to you.

You turned off PM?
Or is WoO having a problem with that?

It's not an experiment because this is nothing new. Casinos have a history of downgrading free play without additional play.

I don't bother to report the $20 per stay that Caesars offers when I used to get as much as $2500 per stay and the reason is I havent been at a Caesars property in about five years.

Just wait until it drops to "Play $50 to get $10 free play!" That's what I'm down to. When we go to Mohegan Pocono for our favorite restaurant (Rustic Kitchen), we don't bother with the casino at all any more.

If I found one of those "hit soft 21 blackjack" tables, I'd play all day long ;-)

Seriously, though, very good post clarifying the "coin-in/free play" issue.

Thanks for correcting (sort of) my mistake Doghand. Obviously I meant hit soft 17. lol.

I didn't even know you could turn off PM so it's probably a woo issue.

I will try sending to you.

EDIT:. I can't send to you but had no problem sending to Dieter.

Let's see if he can figure out what the problem is.

I'll get Miro. This is part of the deep magic, and my hat is not configured for the proper shade of green and suitable pointiness.

If you have older PM exchanges, it sometimes works to reply to an old PM when the system gets persnickety about a new-from-scratch PM.
May the cards fall in your favor.

June 4: How many casinos did you hit today? How far did you travel from your home to the casino(s)? Did you do any additional play? What did you do the rest of the day? And finally, are you out of your mind? $5.00 Really?

You need to start a thread similar to McDawgs adventures and give us a blow by blow diary of your gambling days.
That might really be entertaining. Just sayin'

I live less than a mile from Suncoast, just a mile from Red Rock.

I'm not a machine player.

I do this as an experiment.

Pre Covid Red Rock would give as much as $75, twice a week or three times a week for VP. Suncoast gave as much as $45 a couple of times a week.

It's been interesting watching how the machine free play tumbled.

More curious is that I was at $5/visit at Suncoast for the last couple of months. But this month it was raised to $10/visit with no additional play.

By the way I havent played craps at Suncoast in more than three months.

Tuttigym you are very critical of what others do. Lighten up.

Even if I traveled 30 miles for $5 of free play what does it matter to you?

We are all grownups here. Each of us has our reasons for what we do.

Sometimes we just might want to go for a ride a drop $20 in a bar top.

Several years ago Janet and I would go to local bar, grab their daily food special, and put 20 in their bar top VP machine. Maybe that's not your cup of tea. We enjoyed it.

To answer your question... after my 8 hands of VP I walked out and drove home. I'm not out of my mind. You should be suspended.
