This is a room offer. It's good only Sun-Thurs. It goes at least through August and possibly later. You can book up to five nights. The deal is that you get a $15 dining voucher for each night of your stay. The base rate is $24.50 a night plus $13.30 resort fee and tax. HOWEVER, that was the rate that the online booking engine gave me. When I called, the live human quoted me the rate without resort fee. The upshot was that I paid $110 for four nights instead of $151. It would have been a terrific deal even at the latter price; as it is, I'm staying four nights for $110 with $60 food credit. That is perilously close to free.

The offer code is BRKE0814. As mentioned above, I highly recommend you try to book this one live first (1-800-634-6703). You could even express surprise if they include the resort fee ("I thought that was waived with this offer").

For those of you who might have the wrong impression of the EC, the rooms are actually pretty nice. Book the Tower, not the Pavilion or Vintage rooms. The coffee shop still has those $5 burger and $7.95 prime rib specials, and the Flame steakhouse is better than you might think (and with the ACG or LVA 1/2 off coupons, one of those $15 vouchers can buy you a steak dinner).

It's not bad for a 'starter', and you basically get (cheap) food for one taken care of into the bargain.

If I were starting out in Vegas again, I might take something like that (if I couldn't sponge off somebody else) and try to hit a variety of smaller places to get free nights for future trips, and then settle in at whatever level I intend to play at, at my main places.

I thought you were gonna mention the other good deal at EC. I heard about this recently on the You Can Bet On That podcast.

Withdraw up to $1,000 on an EC ATM once per month. Take the receipt to the cage and they'll give you 5% in free slot play - which CAN be used for video poker.

Well, that is five hundred dollars in free play. Now no one actually used quarters anymore but in the days of walking around with a bucket of quarters ... walking around with five hundred bucks worth of quarters to put into the machines could use up the whole day.

I think it's $50 in free play: $1000 X 5%= $50.

As for coin slots, it seems there are still a few in town.

$50 free money a month is a great deal. Any other casinos have any deals like that on ATM withdrawals?

So you want to be an AP? I realize this is a trivial thing you are mentioning and meaningless at best. Moving forward please watch this NOW.... before its to late.

At some point when you are more knowledgeable you can then make a good judgement and see if its something you don't think will be a big deal.

I have NO idea what you are talking about. I posted what I consider to be a good room deal for the benefit of anyone here who might be able to use it. This has about as much to do with AP play as it does with sex with ostriches in outer space. I'm not going to watch that video, as it will consume an irreplaceable few minutes of my life.

The deal has a few strings attached: 1) You need to have played a certain amount the previous month, OR be a new player. 2) You get one withdrawal per month (unless you have quite a bit of play the previous month, then I believe they will waive that), so if your bank imposes a, say, $300 limit, then you'll be restricted to a single $15 free play bonus. 3) The ATM charges $3.50 per withdrawal.

This used to be a straight, withdraw-as-many-times-as-you-can $50 max free play deal, but predictably, local bottom-feeders burned it out. I'm surprised they've preserved it to any extent at all.

BTW, the two coffee shop specials, $9.95 prime rib dinner and $5 burger and beer, are both excellent.
