Rebate will be in the form of free slot play, returned in 3 installments on 3 different days. Video poker not eligible for the promotion BUT you can play video poker using your free slot play rebate. So the rebate is essential worth 99%+.

15 pulls on a $100 denomination slot machine, hope to hit something. Otherwise, churn the $1,500 slot play into close to $1,500 cash playing full-pay video poker.

We need to know about the fine print: those that did the promo in 2011 are curious if we are eligible for a second encounter of the close kind. And three installments of what? How much is rebateable-still $100? $33.33 available on three different days? Thanks for the info if you have it.

Straight from the Tropicana AC website:

"100% Slot Loss Diamond Club Members

Come into the Tropicana on Saturday, January 14 for one day only, you just can’t lose. We’re giving 100% payback of your slot losses. Simply register at a comp machine, and then play your favorite slots. Tropicana will refund your slot losses from $100 to $1,500.

You will receive your refund in 3 equal payments of Free Slot Play. Redemption dates for the Free Slot Play are January 28, February 25 and March 31, 2012. Visit the Diamond Club Center for complete details."

From the sounds of this, you must be present on January 28, February 25, and March 31 to recieve each 1/3 of your losses. If you miss a day, it looks like you are out that money that you lost. It also specifically says " Offer not valid on video poker machines" and does not specify if this is just with your money or with the free slot play. Acoplander what makes you believe that you can use the Free Play on VP?

As an FYI, the trop in AC has a 5 Joker Poker game which does have a full-pay paytable at $.25, but the only other VP game you will find worth playing in the trop is JoB at a min of $1. Any lower and the paytables decrease significantly.

There was a similar promotion for new Tropicana members where they rebated losses on the day you signed up. I lost $100 that day, but later could download the free slot play on a VP machine (I chose the newer Bally's multi-gaming machines).
