Ten years ago Caesar's AC offers $15 Birthday Free Play coupons, but does not explain the hours correctly. CET then loses a class action suit for multi millions, but is still fighting the judgement......

not sure how I feel about this. I think it is ridiculous that they can sue over this but if I was able to opt in I would.

I think the people should be paid in free play since that is how it was originally. Lawyers too, they get their money in free play. That would be fun to run 2.1 million through a VP in free play.

Holy crap! If I mis-read a coupon, I can sue the issuer in NJ? I'm (about to be) rich, bitch!

I have found some of the small print for some of the promotions to be difficult reading or missing important information on some of the offers. When I first received free play coupons I had to read the small print multiple times for it to be clear.

Recently I got email prepared 'exclusively for (my name)' for a super reward credit multiplier guaranteed 3x or as much as 100x. The email did not show any small print but the mailer sure did. The small print 'All video poker play will be excluded from the promotion'. As I try to schedule my play around some type of promotion or giveaway I would have been disappointed to drive 2 hours and then find out the multiplier to be of no value to me.

Hmmm.... I got thatm e-mail, drove about an hour, played VP, and I am not "disappointed", I am pissed. Maybe I'll take it up with the player's club desk the next time I am there.

JohnnyQ,

HorseShoe Cincinnati and HorseShoe Southern Indiana are giving away a Cadilliac ATS luxury sport sedan tomorrow night. I don't believe there was every any directions on how to earn entries for this drawing. The only thing I saw was that everyone who swipes gets an entry but then I received a card in the mail saying I had earned 1000 bonus entries at Southern Indiana for the drawing. I am wondering if most people are getting the 1000 bonus entries making my bonus entries not worth much. Did you get bonus entries in the mail for one of the car drawings? Both casinos are giving away a second Cadillac ATS on December 21 and if you swipe on December 7, your entries get doubled on December 21. Trying to decide if I should got to this weather/roads permitting.

You actually want the weather to be as bad as possible. So bad that only an idiot would go to the casino. Then you want to be that one idiot. Best case, they hold the drawing and your odds are great. Worst case, they postpone the drawing and you get to pitch a fit about risking your life to attend a promotion that was cancelled.

It terms of general promo EV, this is definitely true. Also it sounds like the weather is tailing off there from what I am reading. So I dunno if attendance will be that poor.

And as for OP, god that makes Harrah's sound ridiculously petty and cheap. I hope they all get their $100.

I did not know about this. This sound bad for the Revel. They defiantly misrepresented the loss rebate promotion. "YOU CANT LOSE"
They even denied players from using a players card for simply winning.

Nope, no bonus entries for us (yet). We have a mailer for Nov, but nothing for Dec yet. We've only been down there a couple of times, so I doubt we are very high on their list.

I went to Horseshoe Cleveland a few times when they were doing a "Car-a-Day" giveaway in Feb, but alas I ended up buying a cheap Chevy instead !
