Boyd is offering a new mystery multiplier, for seniors only:



Offered during the day on Wednesdays, the theoretical maximum is 50x (which would equal 5% cash back). They probably chose 50 because that's the minimum age to qualify for the promotion. I'm chronologically inadequate, so I won't be reporting my results.

Seniors receive several additional benefits, including a t-shirt, drawings and almost free food.

At Suncoast, the promotion coincides with a 7x multiplier for all players (swipe at a kiosk to activate).

The Jackpot Jackets promotion is available during January, but Gold Coast and Orleans require a "taxable" with max bet, whereas the rules at Sam's Town and Suncoast are much more liberal. Or play 12,000 points to receive a jacket. The limit for the promotion is 2 per property, 8 total. That's a lot of jackets.

The problem is you don't know your royal cycles. You can only assume because you don't keep an exact count. Even if you are counting scares that's not exact. Yes I know they are probably way under, they would have to be.

running a few hundred hands over a cycle on 4k's is ridiculous to say you ran bad. Running good on royals has given you a false sense of VP invincibility. This could quickly lead to chasing and hurt your bank roll.

Is it just me, or is anybody else bothered by age discrimination? The Suncoast has 50+ promotions all the time, but almost everybody in the place is over 50 anyway. It leaves what few young people they have feeling left out. Kind of like a promotion for everybody except Capricorns.

Then again, I'm just 17 months away from 50, and somehow I have a feeling I'll be griping about this a lot less after that.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Hmmm...I guess if I'm looking for a boyfriend, this might not be the VERY worst place to show up...though I'm betting it's 80% women and, of the men there, 70% married. Then again, can't say I'm really looking. There has to be SOME good come from getting older (other than the alternative), since you pay for it with sags, bags, aches, and pains, so I guess Senior Discounts will have to do. lol...

There is this type of "age discrimination" in just about any business. It's just called "senior discount."



That doesn't excuse it. I remember when Home Depot had a policy of always giving seniors a discount. I think it was 10% off for over 50. It made me feel like I was paying 11.11% extra for being young. Bravo to Home Depot for dropping that policy. However, I was so upset about it at the time I took my business to Lowe's and have not gone back.

No, it would be bad, for the reasons to state. Especially the bingo room. What few men in there are always coupled off.

When I was at Social Security I had access to outside data on marital status by age. It was pretty depressing for me at the time, as there was a huge glut of young single men.
