What if you don't play $5 do you still get no-mailed playing boner poker? If you play $2 you won't get a taxable unless its a royal. Does the W2-G amounts piss them off, or the denomination in which you are playing that game?


You're above my pay grade, but I suppose the other uncertainty is how the Boyd properties interact in terms of your rating for mail. Bob Dancer blogged about the situation a couple months back. He was backed off for playing the $2 denom, but he had previously been restricted, and his play results were unusually lucky, and he played on his wife's card. Here's the result, from his November 5th post:

"This wasn't my first rodeo with respect to being backed off. It's just part of the cost of doing business.

"It was, however, a lot worse than I thought. Someone at Suncoast marked my record so that I would never again receive BConnected mailers no matter how much I played at Gold Coast and Sam's Town. At both casinos, mailers include extra point multiplier days that aren't available to players who don't receive mailers. When I went to the booth at Gold Coast to see if I could get my mailers resumed, I was told that I had to go through the Director of Security at Suncoast. If I could get him to remove his 'restraining order,' Gold Coast would happily resume mailers based on my play. But if I couldn't do this, Gold Coast wouldn't issue me any mailers.

Well I don't usually play $2, sometimes $1 if I have a profit or hit 4 deuces on quarters to get the 10k coin in over with faster. Anyway I was wondering since I never played at Suncoast because of the whole 86ing fiasco.

It doesn't sound like you play high enough to be no-mailed unless you totally camp out there, but I was wondering ... let's say during a month you intend to play eight sessions of 10k each. Do you get better mail playing one property exclusively for a total of 80k at that one place? Or can you spread your play among the four properties without screwing up your rating?

I thought I heard that it was better at Boyd to be "monogamous," but I don't have a cite, and my own level of play is so pathetic that it's hard to tell.

Station No mails anyone who plays the VP machines where the theo is above 100% with any volume at all. I was no mailed after I played a total of 24 hours over the course of 18 months. I would not at all be surprised if anyone who primarily plays VP on bonus point days is no mailed in short order even if they play quarters.

I think part of the hate for Suncoast is that they've actually trespassed players instead of simply restricting their slot club benefits.

I've seen comments that Stations will restrict players by removing their access to multipliers. A couple times for me the multiplier button was unavailable at the kiosk, but the slot club activated it manually. Just a technical glitch apparently.

7x-11x for 12/31 as well.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Sams Town gave better multipliers over the NYE.
Got 8x, then 9x, then 10x.
With very little play, I was able to get up to $200 in "comp points"

I got the 7x and got beat up on Boner Poker Deluxe. Only caught one 4oak during 1000 hands. Then of course as soon as I switch to 5 play on ugly ducks I catch natural 4OAK!!! Had 3 shots at 4 deuces being dealt 3 but none converted....Sam's was definitely better. I went to the 10x day and did a lot better.

Some guy at the high limit room hit 4AWAK on $20, for $40k, and 4 4's on a $5 for $4k. Didn't look like the Wizard, and I'm sure won't be caught dead at that game on that paytable.
