Canít believe some people waste their time redeeming $5-10 worth of free play. I get $125 worth of promo chips every week from my local casino and I donít even like going there to collect them. And itís only a 3 minute walk from my door. I usually just get them from the cage and take them home. They never expire. I usually wait until I get $500 and then place a one time field bet, hoping for someone to roll a 2 or 12 for 2 or 3X payout. Last two times, I havenít been able to get a field number to roll. Dealers always said just bet $100 each, I respond itís a free roll, didnít lose any cash.

It's worth it if you live very close by, like within a mile to drop in and get the $5-10. If you have to travel miles to get it, it's not worth it.

For some people it is worth it. For you or me it may not be, but others may value their time at less of a rate than we do.

If you're like me and that's all you get, sometimes you take what miniscule freeplay/mailers you can. Personally, I find it worth to redeem it every time I go, for most people I am sure it's not even worth looking at, individual mileage varies of course. But hey, 5-10$ freeplay is better than 0 right?

Free slot play at my local casinos cannot be banked. Use it or lose it.

Once upon a time I used to get $2500 per visit but those days are over.

I try to "combine trips". Like if I'm passing through the neighborhood and experiencing a call of nature, the $5 offer may make it break-even to go inside and get a free cup of coffee.

I could have stopped at the gas station down the road, but their coffee isn't better and they charge more for it.
May the cards fall in your favor.

So how often after you play your $5 or $10 free play you play a little longer by putting money in the machine? Whenever I use my free play, I intend to play anyways so essentially itís a free roll for a short time. I have hit one Royal off my free play

The other night at Red Rock I added $20 and finished with a profit. That was the first time in months.

I have little interest in playing video poker.

I am guessing I now spend $15 in gas or so to get to my casino. No way I go there to cash in my mammoth free play, which seems to have been maybe worth $10 a trip, unless I was going anyway. I think I would need somewhere in the low $$$ range to make the trip solely for the money.

Iím sure Iíve mentioned this before, but the non-smoking environment is a much bigger draw to me than my paltry free play.

Sunday I had

$2040 of free play on three cards for a total of $6120 at one of the Empire properties. Walked out with 5390 after playing some Video blackjack and putting in the required play needed so someone can come back next week and do the same

4 cards with $500 each at one of the guitar loving properties in and out 20 min for a nice profit of $1910

Went over to a big M property for another 6 cards x $750. Best part about this place is I can convert the free play with one bet. Easy to create the offer here even with much competition. All profit
+ $4500

Easy day took about 4 hours. Spent the rest of the day following around someone who has decided to try and act like heís King of a certain play / casino. Since Iím only in town to help my guys figure out a way to deal with this person my day was mostly doing this. Normally I donít personally pickup here but this is an extreme situation that needs my attention. Hopefully a reasonable solution can be negotiated.

Free play last forever when you play the same amount each time
You go in that created the offer in the first place.

Firing from the hip here; The vast majority of patrons never receive that level of free play as shown above. Personally, I cannot wrap my brain around those figures of received free play. So, how much coin in did it take to receive $750 free play per card or even $500 per card? How many sessions of slot play and in what period of time?
