Gambling is a metaphor for life. Hang around long enough and it's all gone.

Update...apparently Boyd was flooded with complaints.
Some people are reporting they received replies to their emails that Boyd is returning to the original rules.
Yay!

Made zero sense so I'm glad to hear the letters worked. Thanks for getting this out there. Jean Scott had a lot to say on this subject as well.

"Every Wednesday we are proud to offer our guests 50 years of age and older their very own Young at Heart Day! Drawings held every Wednesday at 4:30pm.

Earn up to 50X points from 7:00am until 11:59pm with our Mystery Point Multiplier!

$4 Movie Ticket redeemable before 6:00pm at properties with a Century movie theater.

The fun starts after only 10 points are earned!"

Unless you're referring to the temperature, which is closer to 75.

Point multipler promotions are so played out. The utter lack of creative, fun promotions is probably a big reason why there's a dearth of young adults in casinos. Someone please euthanize me if I have to play YAH, for +EV, when I'm 50.
100% risk of ruin

I meant "here" as in Greektown. It's every Wednesday.

P.S. The temperature was about 50 with wind gusts in the 60's.

Especially when that +EV is only about 0.2%.
