Which town or casino are you going to?



I'm just kidding, but Nathan has said he's in Florida.
I heart Crystal Math.

Interesting since wasn't Kentry from Southern Florida? Maybe Nathan has met Kentry before without realizing it?!? 😂

I got advice from someone in a PM strongly implying that I shouldn't give out the name of the casino to avoid trouble.

Unless you can do this multiple times or daily I can't imagine anyone is worried about letting this one out. Anytime there has been any lip-service regarding AP information, it has been on promos worth many thousands, not some gift card giveaway BS. If you can do this all day, or everyday, I too would advise you to just keep it to yourself.

I'm not sure if im buying it.

Anyways, after its over feel free to let us know where it was at.

If you can do it daily or multiple times you should be all over this. I think that someone here would buy the gift cards from you at a discount.

If you play this promo right and sell the cards it would be fairy hard to lose any money on this. It shouldn't take much money to play this. If you sell them as you earn them, you can probably get away playing this with $300 or even less and never look back.

My guess is that he's got the information wrong how you earn the gift cards(500 points). If someone did PM and ask that he not say anything, then what I think is happening is that there is actuality something much better going on there that Nathan doesn't realize. The AP who's playing at that casino doesn't want people looking into the gift-card giveaway in fear that other AP's or darksiders who nark on plays will find out whats really going on.

Ive seen a casino giv $40 in sunoco gas cards for just 20 points earned ( $100 coin-in ) so i could see this potentially.

And yes there were teams that day making points doey dont at e-craps (u earned points on taking odds as well) so with 2 cards people were getting $80 in gas cards for mayb 3 bucks. People were selling them left n right that day. But it was only offerred that good twice n never again

Are you suggesting that $500 coin-in got you into a drawing for a Macy's Gift Card or that $500 coin-in absolutely would get you the Macy's Gift Card? If you are suggesting the latter of those two things, I find it hard to believe that the casino would offer a promotion that GOOD. Even if you had to buck a House Edge of 15% (which would be really high even on penny slots) you'd still have an expected loss of just $75 in exchange for a $100 Gift Card.

I'd consider that break even, only because I don't normally shop at Macy's and, therefore, attribute the value to the gift card that I could easily sell it for. If you could do the $500 coin-in on VP, even terrible VP, I'd suggest the player has the best of that by a long shot. I don't shop at Macy's, but if I can trade a 5% expected loss on $500 coin in ($25) for a $100 gift card, sign me up!

If, instead, you're referring to a drawing for a $100 Macy's Gift Card, then I'd have to try to figure out how many gift cards there were in the drawing and roughly how many people would qualify for the drawing. The gift card, of course, would still have value but not $75 (the maximum value I would ascribe to it) in value...unless there were more cards than players. At a guess, the Video Poker would have to be pretty darn good for the value that I would assign to the gift card multiplied by the probability of my winning it (expressed as a decimal) to be more than the expected loss.

And, of course, if the gift card were for a place I would normally shop, then it would, in fact, have $100 in value to me as a straight giveaway.



Okay, okay, it was $500 coin in for a guaranteed $100 Macy's gift card. But still, having to spend $500 for a $100 gift card is really steep IMHO.





Yes, buying a $100 gift card for $500 is extremely steep, even by current LV standards.

Yes, thank you for seeing my point. :)
Guy "won" less than his bet and the slot machine had the audacity to tell him he got a big win! SMH! Also, the Nintendo cartridge is so much more important than the Nintendo console. Without the cartridge, the Nintendo console is just a useless box.

What IS your point? I think you are confusing losing $500 with gambling $500.

I read this thread expecting to find examples of free t-shirts for the first 5000 points, or a leftover sushi buffet free to new members after earning 100 points.
