I wrote out a lot then decided shouldn't post all that.

Essentially, every casino's marketing system is different. They weight things differently than others, like theoretical loss, actual loss, time played, and other metrics. Some strictly look at the previous X time period, some look at the previous X, Y, and Z time periods, weighting each differently. Some will give you mail very soon (like 2 weeks) and others may take 3-4+ months. Also doesn't help ALL of these things may change at any given time and IME they can change frequently. It may even be so simple that the casino wants to target smaller players than bigger players so they give out more to smaller players than they did before and take some from the bigger players. Or vice versa. Or maybe they now have a bigger marketing budget or a smaller one. Or their budget is seasonal (trying to get people out to BFE during the winter might be difficult...during the summer, not so much). Many places will give different offers based on your vicinity to the casino.

Hell, maybe they wrote down your address incorrectly and it's not even going to your house.

Ya, I would hate to see what you actully deleted.

If anyone ever feels like telling me something that they don't want to say in public, I will gladly accept instant messages. :-)

The more I think about this thread, I'm landing on "don't play for offers, just consider them icing on the cake."

Maybe I can engineer losses by ratholing chips at a table game...

Oh man... Nathan said I've got it right... Now I'm worried I don't have it right. Of course if I knew I had it right in the first place, I wouldn't have posted... So, status unchanged I guess.

Hey... If I start pubically ranting about casinos cheating me on Indian soil and being cursed and what not... Will I get a bunch of really subtle hints to go along with non stop ribbing? Just kidding... :-)

I really to appreciate everyone weighing in!
