Not yet. Somewhere around Nov 12th is the last date. We need to petition them to bring that flight back.

When I was on it, the Tues thurs was pretty full. I assume the problem is the more expensive friday, sunday flights are not full.

Interesting that SPIRIT apparently sells advertising space on their Overhead Bin Storage doors for this promo. It was on about every 4th door.

We took a Spirit non-stop flight, but I didn't get around to going downtown for this on my most recent trip. I will probably be back in LV this year, but probably not before the promo expiration date of June 30th, 2016.

Then he calls over the floor that about 30% of the time looks just as bewildered. Do these places not educate their dealers and floor about current promotions and the kind of coupons that might show up at their table?



No, they don't.

As a dealer, whenever someone would put a free bet / match play / promo chip on the table, I'd be like YOLO I ain't checking that. Then another dealer would be like "Hmm, what's this here a match bet? Oh yeah you gotta bet like 10x the amount or something I'm not really sure how those work" or "free bet coupon? Yeah it'll stay up until it loses. You can even use it in the field and hope for a 2:1 or 3:1 payout since it'll pay the odds....or use it as free odds behind the pass line or on a come bet". And of course, idiotic dealer would oftentimes pay out a winning free bet and leave the voucher there OR pay it twice and take the voucher. Once I saw a dealer change a free bet or match bet for chips at face value. Boss saw it and was like "F*** this sh*t, seriously? I'm done" got up and walked away from the table on a live game.


I was really hoping the player would try to use it as odds on a come bet LOL.

They used to give out match plays and aces like candy every fun book, news paper, Vegas magazines, mass mail etc etc. $25 and $50 were not that uncommon. The biggest mistake I noted the dealers making was on double down and split hands. They would insist you had to add more money. Oftentimes when you won the hand they let you keep your coupon.

I've gotten all sorts of weird looks using matchplays/promo chips at some places. The D and Boyd are probably tied for most clueless, which is much more surprising for the latter considering they probably see 100x more matchplays per month.

I've given the match play coupon to the dealers at the D and I've had them spend 30+ seconds reading it only to hand it back to me and tell me to take it to the players club. I've also had dealers along with the pit boss give it a thorough examination before allowing me to play it.

At a casino that shall remain nameless, I've had promo chips and been given shit about using them. One time after placing a bet and winning the dealer said "ok now take your chips and leave like everyone else does" and another time the pit boss was near and after winning a bet and removing my chips he said "thanks for playing, hope you had a good time!" in a really sarcastic manner. No way the pit boss knew me or anything because I think I had used the promo chips only once or twice there before in the past year.

I have had a few casinos let me sit down with a stack of match plays and use them all. Talk about fun fun fun.
