I am surprised I got any sort of offer, especially from the Wynn, but they are offering me two free nights (Sun-Thurs) in an upgraded suite at Encore this spring.

Here was the play I logged at the Encore my most recent trip: 45 minutes of $15 a hand blackjack, resulting in a $170 session loss after a $200 buy in.

I noticed the offer was sent out the same day I played, sent as a nice letter.

Are they hurting? Is there a catch?

I would hardly think that would even register for a free meal.

Interesting that you got an offer. I would think that they are hurting. Though their published rates are still pretty high, you can book a package through any major website that gets you into the Wynn or Encore for about $100/night plus a resort credit for $75 for the entire stay. Given the lack of other casinos around the Encore, there must be the thought that if you stay there, you will do alot more than 45 minutes of gambling there.

The offer surprises me a bit, but not a lot.

What REALLY surprises me is that it was postmarked the same day you were there.

I mean, if you're in town for just a couple days, maybe you'll stop in again before you head home. If so, don't you think they would have delayed giving you the offer until they had a better idea of your play?

The dealer's supervisor was very friendly and asked to sign me up for the player's club while I was sitting there.

I may have played 1 or 2 hands at $20-25, but i doubt while I was being watched. I did ask how high I had to bet to be rated, the manager's response was they look at everyone.

Ah..That's probably the reason you got the offer - you're a new player's club member. It likely had nothing to do with your play.

I've stayed there a lot and gambled a lot. The latest offer I got was for three nights for $359 total, no free play credit. This was interesting in that they quoted a total price instead of a per night price, which probably means you need to stay three nights for the deal.

I've found the Wynn's offers to be pretty eclectic. Sometimes they are not that great (like the one I mentioned) and other times they are pretty darn good, IMHO, like the last one I took advantage of, which was for three free nights plus $300 in free play. The "stay three nights" seems to be a theme of their offers recently. On this offer, I was told if I didn't stay three nights, I couldn't get the free play credit.

To piggyback on what boymimbo said above, you can get some pretty decent rates right now at Encore through most travel sites. I'm planning a trip for this summer and found I can get a suite at Encore for less than a regular room at either Venetian/Palazzo or Bellagio through Southwest Vacations.

If you do some searching, you can also find a # of promotional codes for either discounted rate or "3rd night free" type deals at Encore (I found several on fatwallet.com).

PacoMartin, a bit off topic, but I ran across a few of your posts about Steve Wynn being interested in the Ritz/Casino and golf courses in Lake Las Vegas. We're hearing the same rumors here too.

The Ritz closes this Sunday. LLV exits bankruptcy 6/22. The water issues for the courses are now resolved. The courses have just been groomed nicely, the water falls and ponds in the courses are being filled up again. We're hoping for an announcement soon.

Any more rumors about Wynn and Lake Las vegas?

Thanks!

I received the same offer last year. played a little after signing up for a card. I used it. Very nice. I still think that Harrahs and the venetian have the best room comps.

I played $ 1 9/6 JorB VP at Wynn briefly a couple of years
ago, and we get an offer once or twice a year. I intend to
take them up on it this summer. Our offer was:

$ 99 per night, Sun - Thur

$150 Free play if you stay 3 nights

I think this is a pretty good deal for how much I played
there.
