The double royal promo is dead now. I didn't see any of the regulars the last two nights so maybe you guys already know. They upgraded all of the VP at Plaza to compensate for it.

I was checking out VPfree2 and noticed the upgrade also at the Plaza
Gonna be in Vegas next week and staying at the nearby Goldengate.
Not familiar with the double royal promo but quite impressed with this upgrade.
My 2 favorite games, 25 cent 100.17 DB and 99.54 JOB.
And 99.54 is at a bar, can probably watch a game and play.
I hate it when the few casinos that have 99.54 put them in out of the way places with no view of a TV.
Maybe this is the trip I finally hit that elusive for me Vegas Royal.

The double royal thing was for higher tier members where they got the equivalent of a Royal in free play playing their lower payback machines. I assume with the 100% Royal bonus that it made some of the games positive.

They also have 9/6 Bonus Deluxe now at the bar too which is a little better payback than 9/6 Jacks.

Playing the upgraded video poker at the plaza.
Its real nice to play quarter 99.54 JOB at a bar with the football game in front of you.
I have a real old players card, tried it out last nite only losing 20. I put the old card in, says Hello and my name.
Its so old, I showed it to a guy at the bar, he offerred a buck for it.
Now that I am planning on playing alot of VP today, went to the players club just to make sure the real old card is working.
I am not in the system. So bizarre. It is a real real old card. So I sign up as a new member.
They have a new players rebate deal but its slots, uggh.
These old card worth anything? Got a big stash at home of various casinos.

Slot rebates are still lucrative, the Free Play can be used on VP and you use the original $$$ that you risk to take a shot at something high denom...then grind it all back with Free Play. You have a chance to win big with an expectation of losing small.

The original slot cards may be worth a few bucks because there are not as many of some of them around. I would say though, you should have taken the buck. It is probably not worth anything, but you never know.

You can play 99.54 JoB at the bar at Main Street and see a football game there too. And you get a scratch off card on 4oaKs.

If anybody on here collects these, I have a bunch of them from 15-25 years ago; never have thrown one away. Let me know by PM if you want a visual list.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I have a bunch of their old cards from before tiers for Royal Rewards. A couple have Western still on them. I've never thought they were worth anything though. And yes, they all still work. Same players club software they have had for a couple of decades.

I went up to the players club to get info on this slot rebate, I was under the impression it was slots only.
They ran my card, I lost 40 on video poker , they gave me 20 to play today and will get 20 tomorrow. Woohoo
I'm really glad they upgraded the video poker here. I hope it helps because the vibe here is not as lively as other downtown casinos.
