The Palms has matched The Riviera's 1,000 dollar slot loss rebate for new members. This is a great trend for players new to Vegas slot clubs like myself.

This rebate is also applicable to table games.

Wow, good for them! Too bad I'm ineligible for two reasons -- I already have a card, and I live in Clark County. Just goes why I keep saying not to not surrender your out of state ID if you move here, as I did.

Also, is it just me, or did anyone else get an extremely obnoxious and hard-to-get-rid-of pop-up on that page?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Are properties offering these types of promotions strict about other people playing on the eligible person's player's card? The Palms strictly prohibits this.

I didn't get a pop-up. Residents outside of Clark County must be immune from them.

No pop-up. I'm using Firefox, but it didn't even tell em the site was trying to open one up. Maybe they removed it?

I just went back and didn't get it. Hopefully my gripe about it had something to do with them removing it.

I just got the pop-up. You click it, it goes away, and then a few seconds later, it reappears. Again and again.

There might be a cookie that you see it only the first time you load the page. To get rid of it, try refreshing.

By the way, I have never used a pop-up on my sites.

This is a great promotion. For my first Vegas trip this really encourages me to stay/play at this property. I am curious how this works for tables. It says that a promotional chip will be given. So if I lost $100, I would get a 25 dollar promotional chip on the spot. I am guessing it is good for one bet only for the full amount. I could be conservative and try to get 95% of the value of the chip on a banker hand in Baccarat, or take a chance on a number in roulette. After 14 days- I could come back and try again for 25 and after 3 months I could try for 50. More realistically I would use the instant 25 dollar chip then the 50 dollar one several months later as I don't plan to visit too often.

I am guessing the EV of the promotional chip is about 50% of the face value of the chip. So if you only use the 25 dollar chip you are getting an 12.xx% return on your loss, if you use both 25's you are getting 24.xx and if you use all 3 redemptions around 49.xx% back. Although with variance you may get nothing and you may get 100%. Still a great incentive to go to this property as a new player.
