I wonder if my offers will increase since I wasn't able to use all the free play days.

Had you skipped ALL of them, I might say there's a chance. If you collected some of them, I would think not. Perhaps they will double, and you will get $6 a pop next time.

LMAO! $3 a day is insulting, but still way better than the horrid $3 for a whole month they offered me. I went to the casino today and was told I have no more offers. Boo. They should have at least offered to let me use my unused free play for the days I couldn't come in. That would have been a good $25 in free play.

I don't know if this is normal for a Dotty's property, but I ran a decent amount, 25$ a shot (machine limit), on a BJ machine at the River Lodge in Laughlin. (Their food is surprisingly good and decently priced for the area. Also, allegedly the cheapest alcohol and tobacco for the area.)

I got my first mail from them two months later for... one dollar a week in freeplay, must bring coupon.

Winner for downright insulting in my book goes to another Laughlin property... two hours of black chipping, barely survived to break even before leaving... three months later (are they putting new members on a quarterly?) I tear open their mailer with some degree of excitement and fascination to receive... the discounted rate of 39 (29?) for weekday nights, call in for weekend quotes. Clearly, they underestimated my stubbornness so they had to sweeten the pot so I wouldn't pitch it into the trash with enough force to knock it over. The month after that, I get the same room rates, plus five dollars matchplay.

We have yet to coin in at that location because we haven't had a good return at any of their properties(one mans trash). I had no idea they could send as low as $1 a week. They may have been hit on that BJ machine and are not giving anything for it. The $1 may not be from the coin in and its just part of some other marketing scheme (are you sure it's not just a typo or somthing?)

I'll put up a photo if I can find it. While low, I found it more perplexing than anything; along the lines of "How did they value me? Is this a joke mailer? What are they thinking? Do they expect to even make postage back on this offer? Would ANYBODY stop in on the strength of this?", unlike the latter which rattled off a string of mental expletives.

I guess it could be from other play and zilch off the VBJ. It continued to give bonus points, and regular points, on that machine (or did; my last trip had one bonus in like two hours, as opposed to 7-8 in three, on my prior) so it isn't shut off entirely. I suppose the scant 200-or-so I put through on the other machines is worth 1$FP/wk.

Aha, here we are: https://imgur.com/a/ehOKUyY

I also like how it's "free slot play". I think I actually had this in my car the last time I was over there, but couldn't be bothered to dig it out of the trunk.

Total Rewards from a couple months ago was: Earn 66700 tier credits this month, get 7000 tier credit bonus.



That's better than mine, depending on your outlook. That one's giving just over a 10% bonus... mine wanted ~20k for a 500 points bonus.

You're probably being insulting to Dotty's. Whenever I get such mailers, they always double the last week's offer to $2 to make it really worthwhile!

I addressed recent changes in Dotty's in my April 17 column at gamblingwithanedge.com, with the follow-up to that column going to be posted on April 24

For years, the Silverton in Las Vegas advertised on every machine that if you come in on your birthday you'll get 1,000 free points. At that casino, it's worth $3 in free play.
