When you say property bonus that is some type of extra bonus on top of the slot game? I dont ever recall seeing that terminology out here on the East coast.

Also, any comments about what the casinos can get away with probably has little adherence in an Indian casino. They are notorious for abuse




I may be speaking out my ass but I get the impression that our Indian casinos (California) are friendlier than other states. I know they're not angels, but it's such big business here, they want to be nice. lol I know it's big business all over the country, but I can only judge California. I only see friendly people, from the drink girls, to the dealers, to Security, all the way up to management. Just friendly people.

I would agree. Been in Indian casinos in.6 or 8 states...NC, AL, WA, CA, MS, FL, MN, WI that I can think of. CA has the most professional and friendly attendants, in my experience.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I'd add NY (upstate) to friendly Indian casinos. I'm a guppy, and have always been treated well.

No idea how they treat APs.

California's casinos are definitely friendly & professional. Lots of other locals aren't. I think my last visit to Iowa was my final visit to Iowa.

Yes, those casino wide promos are on top of the slot games. For example, stations ran one this winter with a 10k reset and a 20k must hit. Gotta be using your card & when it hits most people get $10 and one guy gets $1x,xxx.

Oh, that was the Monopoly thing. Even though I am in California, I watched the Stations website and got texts on my phone each time one of their many casinos was approaching $20K. I would call my friend in Vegas who doesn't know how to use his phone. We're both old.

It is a random jackpot that can hit on any machine at any time. Has a minimum and a must hit by a certain amount. The program is from IGT and it is called "Carded Lucky Coin"

I used to work in NY also.... Turning Stone. I was there from 1993 to 2001. Funny story. They used to sweat the money. I always treated AP very well. We had a deal that they would not win $2000 in a single session, and I would leave them alone.

I really am more of an AP than a Dark sider.....

Work the BJ pits? The ones they never changed the cards on?

When TS has $500 BJ table limits, or even just $300 at the smaller sister casinos, I'm either there before they jack up the minimums past $10/$15 or they are still sweating the money.

Craps has a $10-$1000 limit, $5-$500 at the sister casinos. I'm trying to figure out how to reach table max bet on a run of 11 place bet 6's or 8's hitting during one shooter.

Turning stone sweated their freeplay so bad they nearly went out of business. They had to have a big ad campaign when they switched over back in 2015.

They made it so freeplay resulted in a win OVER the amount.

I.E. if you had $100 freeplay and did just the playthrough and were left with $89 you could collect nothing.

And if you were left with $101 you could collect just the $1 over. They treated it like a temp loan which you had to actually win more than when finished

Business was so bad as a result they switched to freeplay as we know it in 2015 I believe
