Sometimes certain days of the week have fp offers, I don't always understand the reason. This month the casino is giving people free play on Wednesdays and I can't understand why. I see no other reasons to go on Wednesday besides the free play. Usually it's senior day, with no promotions for me. Why do they want people there on Wednesdays?

It's probably going to ruin my future offers going there, I'll want to go other days, and will, but not going to spend any more ideally. In some ways, it seems counter productive from a casino perspective, drawing people in, only to later draw them away, setting them up to fail.

Why Wednesday? Makes little sense to me.

U answered your own question. U see no reason to go weds other than fp. If weds are a slow dsy for the casino then this is how they rope then in

Fp is an enticement for players to come in and gamble. The casinos certainly dont consider it a refund the player is earned

It's to get people into the casino. The people who are going to go on the weekend are going to go anyway, whether there's freeplay or not. If you were a casino, would you offer someone $100 to show up, if they're already going to show up? Or would you rather offer someone $100 to show up if they were instead going to do something else and not go to the casino?

Some casinos send out multiple free-play offers per week. I played one promotion where after getting a certain amount of qualifying hands, you end up getting a small amount of free play every single day. IMO, this does a few things --

1. Most importantly, it tries to get people into the casino often. Every time they get a person into their casino, they'll make money (for the most part). If they get them in once a week, that's good. If they can get them in 2-3 times a week, that's excellent. Better yet, having them come in a few times a week or even every day trains that person into coming in that often. So now, coming in every day is a 'normal' thing for that person to do and it becomes a habit.

2. Although this doesn't really apply to the Wednesdays only offer, the more they offer, the better it seems for the player, even if the player can't get all that free play. Imagine if you got an offer for $75 in FP 3 times a week. Most people won't be able to pick up all that FP (I think), but when they see their mailer, they'll see the big ol' "$900 in rewards just for you!" Even if you can only get $300 of that $900, it still makes it seem more worth it to play there, because they gave you $900!

3. And of course, similar to #2, people aren't going to be able to grab all that free-play. So you give them the perception(?) of getting $900 a month in free-play, when in reality, that person only gets $300, because he may only go to the casino once a week, not 3 times a week.
