If by perks you mean greasy pizza slices for $5.75 a slice or $32 for a whole pizza (thats not a typo, thirty two dollars for a suasuge and pepperoni pizza )and greasy no matter what kind of topping, then yes, I had plenty of perks. The one time I splurged and got a whole pizza, it was stuck to the box by the time I brought it home (20 minute drive) It is so overpriced at every shop.

On a related note, they have a Starbucks but it is not 24 hours. I think it closes at 1 or 2 am. If I were a Starbucks fanatic and wanted one at 3 in the morning I would be pissed. All food court closes at 11pm with the exception of greasy pizza place and an overpriced deli which both close at 6am.

The entire food management mentality needs to be overhauled there. I dont know how they expect to entice people to eat there with overpriced food that might not even be available when you want to eat it.

Now, the ice cream place is closed Monday thru Wednesday because I guess no one eats ice cream on those days. If I want to spend $10 of my comps for a 3 scoop cone on a Tuesday night I'm shit out of luck.

I'm told that with platinum status I can get 90% off top shelf liquor st the bars. Great, I dont drink. If I did I suppose that has value. But since it's probably way overpriced to start that 90% off may in fact be a lot less if I were to go buy the liquor at a store.

I'm currently st $374 in comps. My friend wants to eat at the fancy steak house. That place and the fish place use to have their menus posted outside with prices. As of a month ago when we went to see how many comps I would need for us the menus no longer had prices outside the restaurant. WTF!? Since they were closed at the time I said screw that.

I think the only reason why this place makes money is location location location. If another casino were to open up with 5 miles of it and is run just a little bit better they would be out of business.

These are all pet peeves of mine. They dont make me dislike it, just irritated to varying degrees depending on what situation arises.

As far as Horseshoe Baltimore and Maryland Live, both 40 minutes more of a ride for me, their video poker is awful. I dont care what perks they have. If a casino has a decent enough game I'll play there. If not, they dont get my money.



Forgot to mention 6 chicken wings cost $12. The sports bar had 8 for $16, so 2 bucks a wing is standard there. But whatever you do, dont get the steak and cheese at the sports bar. I bit into it and the grease poured out the other side onto my shirt and pants. That didn't upset as much as the price for wings though. But I have to burn my comps someplace.

The demented aspect is that I enjoy the YouTube channels in which the player uploads a video from when they lose their entire buy in. It makes the videos when they actually do win feel more exciting.

And sometimes they even get told to stop recording, which is funny because the casino is discouraging free advertising.



I myself asked something like,"Why are Casinos so against people filming their OWN slot play? They aren't filming OTHER PEOPLE, just filming their own slot play." The response was something like,"Casinos are wary about people filming in the Casino considering there have been reports of people using their filming devices to cheat the game "

I just spent a half hour watching Steve Bourie teach YouTuber Brian Christopher how to play video poker. I don't need to have actual friends and travel all the way to Vegas!

How much tax did you pay on the mega hit $240,000 in your Avatar? :) Congratulations, that is the biggest win on a slot machine I have ever seen besides the woman who legitimately won 13 million in a slot machine. :)

Pre paying taxes not a good idea when I can collect interest on it until I have to pay on April 15th. Between state and federal it will probably be in the neighborhood of 40%. Of what dollar amount I won't know until January 1st. 10 days left in the year. I can still do damage one way or the other between now and then.

I assumed you already paid the taxes on that huge mega hit. :)
