I didn't play at one of my local casinos for MONTHS and got a "We miss you" offer of $3 for the whole month! That's beyond insulting. That's a dastardly slap in the face! That's the worst offer I have received EVER. My other local gives me roughly $60 a MONTH just to put into perceptive how insultingly low the $3 a month offer really is.

What's the single most insulting casino offer you have received?

A really pretty girl approached me at MGM, asking if I wanted a "date."

Can you imagine, she actually wanted me to pay HER for having sex.

Hell, she asked me first, she should pay.

Yes, I took serious umbrage at that trollop's pitch.

I was kind of angry the casino called $15 fp a Christmas bonus. Then received a birthday bonus of $10 fp. If they're going to do something special, it should be more than typical for and not less. Otherwise, they should not slap a special name on it.

A casino in Vegas sent out a revised mailer cutting a lot of people in half on offers already received. The original offers were normal. Guess they were taking a beating?......lol....Sure pissed a whole lot of regulars off.

They spent the money to print and send the mail twice. Pissed off their client base and had to double down the following month to keep their regulars from jumping ship. Casinos are a hoot.

I wonder about printing and postage costs for a mailer offering three dollars.

I went to Yonkers twice soon after it opened. For several years they would send me $5 free play and $5 off a buffet monthly. After no showing for years, it was reduced to quarterly. Now they send them to Nevada.
I wonder what the return percentage is for out of state postcards.

One of the funniest offers I got was a "VIP only" drawing where you had to earn a bunch of points for an entry to win a roomba. At first I thought it said you get a free roomba, then I thought it was you have to earn XXX points for a free roomba....but the offer was actually, you have to earn XXX points for an entry to enter into the drawing to try to win a roomba.


Another funny one, I don't remember the exact details, but it was an invitation to another drawing (you have to earn XXX points per entry). It was something like 10 winners share $200 in cash or freeplay, which is like $20/person. And this was at a legitimate casino, not a tiny whole in the wall place (granted, it wasn't like an MGM Grand or Caesars Palace, either). The worst part was, the offer made it seem like the drawing was really really cool and they were giving away a whole bunch'a money.


I've gotten several insulting offers that are like, "Do $1,000 coin in and get $3 (or $5) in free slot play!" Like....bruh, how does this make me want to go to your casino????



Didn't happen to me, but happened to a friend. Long story short, he was playing quite a bit, a host approached him, asked if he could do anything (you know how hosts are, they're always saying they can do this and that, anything you need, don't hesitate to ask, etc. etc.). He said yeah, going to steakhouse tonight with a few friends, can I get it comped or a discount? Host said he'll check, he came back with a whopping $10 comp and played it off like it was some huge comp and said if he needs anything else during his stay, don't hesitate to ask. Like wow, I don't think it can really get any more insulting than that. =\

A casino was offering bonus FP on a certain day of the week. Went in to just get some FP and found out it was a whopping $2... I literally laughed and pointed at the screen to my teammate.

I've also received mailers for "we miss you... come play $100 and get $5 in free play!"

I haven't had to pay for a hotel room in a long time... so the offers of like "We miss you, check out your AMAZING OFFER!!! ...$65 per night hotel!" are really insulting to me. I think hotel rooms should be one of the easiest comps a casino could offer, especially to someone out of town/state.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

A friend put over $1000 coin-in on slots at Mountaineer casino month or two ago and hasn't gotten mail yet. If they know what they're doing, they're the only ones that know they know what they're doing. The casino about 15 months ago cried uncle and just about butchered free play offers, haven't changed yet.
