I've earned a high enough "status" for the first half of this year and enough comp credits so from now until July I'm just going to use my free play.

Unfortunately my free play offers are very low (craps players just don't get free play offers from Boyd and Stations).

On Thursday, Match 30th, I had $15 of free play at Red Rock. I cashed out $10.06 and this represented a profit of $9.06 after the $1 seed money. I played 100-line triple double bonus at one-cent per line.

Today April 4th I played at both Suncoast and Red Rock. Again TDB at one-cent per line.

Suncoast gave me only $5 (zero in March) and thanks to a dealt flush I cashed out $6.77

Red Rock gave me the usual $15 and with my $1 seed money I cashed out $11.16 or a net profit of $10.16 which I thought was okay for a volatile game like TDB.

Total take home on $20 of free play was:
$ 6.77 + $10.16 = $16.93

Of course I scored zero tier points and zero comp points with so little play.

A note about Suncoast: Boyd now calls its players club "Boyd Rewards" ala Caesars Rewards. The download screen on slot machines has changed with new wording that makes it simpler to understand.

Alan.... do you not gamble anymore? I couldn't imagine getting in my car and going to a casino to solely collect $5 or $10. If I'm there to play for fun, like you shooting craps, then I won't pass up the free small $$ stuff. Are you also playing other stuff when you pick up your free play?

This thread needs something.
How about a challenge.
You pick the day, the casino, and the game. The only rule is that you can't eat until you have earned enough comps for the meal.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Huh?

You've bet enough to fund future gambling through July solely with free play?

But the amount of free play you've earned is only about fifteen or so bucks per casino per week?

Does not compute, unless your idea of casino gambling differs vastly from the main stream.

When I read the opening part your post I thought "Great, he's brushed himself off, found a bankroll and is at it again," but then ... only confusion.
"What, me worry?"

Hip, Hip Hooray for the low rollers if they are able to amuse themselves and find enjoyment playing for small stakes

99% of gamblers or more lose money - so at least the low rollers will lose a lot less and still get entertainment out of it

I'm less than a mile from Suncoast and less than two miles from Red Rock. In nice weather I've walked.

Recently I've been a caretaker for my ex wife who is very ill with leukemia. I've also had to curtail work.

When I go to the casinos once a week for the free play it gives me a chance to decompress.

By the way, Janet and I were married five years ago today. Unfortunately MrV couldn't find our wedding picture on the other site. I've been going back and forth to the hospital in Salt Lake City.

No. I played my usual amounts in January and February. That gave me my points.

Now I'll just take the free play. Again it's small because my play was at craps. Red Rock stopped the free play for craps players when the Covid shutdown happened. There's no free play for tables.

My favorite casino in Biloxi, MS sends me $50/week in free play and $20/wk in table play every month for the past year or so. I patronize maybe three times a year. When I last used my free play last week, they also gave me a $20 bonus free play for a total of $70 for that visit. I cashed out at $75 on the free play available. If I lived within 10 miles of that casino, I could recover my entire food budge for the month. Your local LV casinos are cheapskates and that is a shame considering your loyalty and patronage.

Is that $200 a monthly stipend or weekly or what? What is the total amount you wager over a given 8 hr. session?

I play for about 45 min. and wager approximately $500 in a given session. Sometimes the bets are larger within a given session based on the play of the table and my results from hand to hand.
