The following is from a post created late yesterday or early today by darkoz. I've received a complaint about its mysterious disappearance with accusations that a moderator busted it.

What I speculate happened is selfish advantage players teamed up to flag it off the site. My response is that I'm bringing it back and will defend it from flagging. In fact, because of the sabotage I will be analyzing it and drawing even more attention to it as it does appear to be very generous. Stay tuned for more details.

I also invite you to visit Plaza promotions.

I'm not in Vegas but wanted to alert those that are I just read of a pretty decent bonus for tax day only (April 18, this Monday).

All jackpots over $1200, i.e. taxable wins, will have the amount of the tax awarded in free-play. 28% was the amount I read in the article.

Here is the type from their own website. Note there is also a $500 new membership loss rebate so if you can combine those two, sounds like some nice +ev.

Payout Payoff

Tax Day Promotion – April 18th
We Pay The Tax On Eligible Jackpots
See Royal Reward for Details. Management reserves all rights.*

$500 ON US

“Players club offers the best new-member benefit in town with the $500 on Us loss-rebate promotion”- Anthony Curtis
New Royal Rewards members receive $500 On Us Promotion. Actual slot loss of 100 up to 500 will be reimbursed in free slot play or promotional chips.See Royal Rewards Desk for details.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I'm only going to guess who complained? Could it rhyme with park boz?

Fair warning that I will be issuing suspensions to anybody who I feel, beyond a reasonable doubt, was inappropriately flagging the original post. Be careful what you confess to.

Wasn't confessing to anything I remember reading the post just not sure who would have complained that it was removed except the poster was my only thought

How nice that wov will be just a block away for pg's nugget challenge . You all should hammer that promo , pool your br and go big on some machine. Whack!
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

In the unlikely chance I can get a $5 machine, I intend to play. This could involve me missing the challenge.

Speaking of $5 machines, vpfree2 says the plaza has the following games, which I think would be appropriate for this promotion:

$1 10/7 Double Bonus
$5 9/7 Double Bonus
$5 8/5 Bonus Poker

Here are return tables for all three with wins of $1250 or more increased by 28%.

If I am not mistaken I think your numbers are wrong on 8/5 Bonus. Wouldn't only the royal, SF, and four aces get the bonus?
Living longer does not always infer +EV
