I just heard the Wynn has liberalized their parking rules. Please see the article Wynn Resorts to stop charging overnight guests for parking.

I didn't know they were charging overnight guests before, which would have been quite egregious. However, what matters more for me is what they charge for non-hotel guests who are there to visit part of a day. It seems reasonable to ask for some kind of financial transaction to park. The article mentions requiring a $50 purchase, including "game play." Hopefully that will include a $50 sports bet. If so, my advice would be to the $50 on any underdog. I've been doing that at Binions for years, but I don't think they have a minimum for parking validation. I've always been good with $20 bets.

If you are extremely risk averse, you could bet $55 both ways against the spread on any game, which would be like paying $5 for the parking, assuming they validate in the sports book. I'd suggest having the decency to go to separate windows.

The question for the poll is what are your thoughts on this rule change?

I am usually in and out in under 60 minutes (complementary) when I visit Wynn/Encore. I think I maybe paid once at the kiosk ($7). Never tried to validate (with sports/horsey tickets), I guess you do this at the cashier cage?

Let's hope this becomes the trend on the strip. I definitely won't hold my breath though.

With Binions just stick some money in a slot. Summon an attendant and have them validate.

Just tell them you lost all your money or drive out the entrance or back way.

There is also another method where you can park for days and not worry about it.

I won't post the details, but if you put some thought into it one could probably figure it out.

Here is an idea. Those machines that give you a ticket when you enter seem to have a magnet and will spit one out when it believes a car to have approached the machine. I've noticed that something metallic as small as a bicycle can trigger them, sometimes. Sensitivity seems to vary. So, ride up to the machine in a bicycle, hopefully grab the ticket, put the bicycle in the car, leave with the new ticket, and throw away the old one. Thoughts? Leaving out the entrance seems too obvious. There is also usually a bar to prevent you from doing that.

most have License plate readers to go with the ticket to make sure they match up.

I could see that working if a human being collected the money. However, at the Wynn you pay at a kiosk in advance, which validates the parking. Are you saying that cameras can read the license plate as you present the ticket and not open the gate if it doesn't match?
