So I just recently decided to end my blackjack play for the year and take a break. I think there is the possibility we are looking at another shutdown anyway with cases exploding. Time will tell.

So as someone who plays a bit of VP machine play for the mailer hustle, most of the places I place were at the lower end of my cycle and I was going to just let them go and reset next year. I did have one place, offering $150 free play a week that I thought I would swing by and hit each week.

Then on Saturday, I got a mailer from a independent local casino (not chain) with $400 free play per week. This is a high amount for my volume of play. I had almost forgot that I visited this place once since re-opening a couple months ago to check for changes in blackjack and gave them some modest VP play.

But this amount is far greater than I should have gotten. I have been playing this place (not going to name it right now) for years and this is easily 4 times what I should have gotten for the amount of play I gave them. This is a place that has an older customer base and I can only guess they are hurting and giving higher mail offers to entice players.

Anyone else have any experiences along these lines?

Looks like a short-term income stream that beats a once in a lifetime $1200 stimulus check.
I can only hope for $10 match plays for a $5 table.
I should get my driver's license in the mail any day now so security has something to swipe at the door during The COVID-19 Connection Shakedown.

Suncoast (Boyd) has eliminated my free play and dining offer for November. I was getting $30 twice a week in free play.

Red Rock (Stations) was giving me $45 of free play twice a week and in November it's only $15 twice a week.

Did we figure out that free play was based on bank interest rates of 0.02% awhile back?

Lol. You have a gift for essentially naming places youíre not naming.

Iíve seen some places Post Covid with offers as high or higher than before as well as 2-3 places that had generous offers but cut off so fast even with reasonable additional play that it wasnít worthwhile essentially fake offers. And then places that I would have had good offers waiting on pre-Covid that sent nothing at all, itís really been all over the map.

I've say about half and half that my offers went up slightly and went down sharply after not showing my face for a few months... one of my places that went down I suspect is a side-effect of limiting everything but the main pits to their top tiers only, when I used to get about 2/3rds of my offers from the tertiary pits.

Some of the people who I know are redchip saw increases across the board.

Lol. And that's ok because I am not trying to be secretive to protect some great info. I am happy to share with anyone that wants the info. Just not publicly where some search of the property name results in management reading something and deciding to switch up.

same amounts from ballys a/c ($100 every 2-5 days).
but borgata doubled my freeplay from $75 to $150 (one time only).

i could time Bally's right for mid nov and get $300 free play for 5 days/4 nights stay. (so $450 total including borgata)
but nah.

dont feel like driving 3hrs each way right now, especially since caesars extended my Diamond till Jan 2022.
if freeplay for 5day/4night stay >$1000 total, then i'll probably do it.

(i havent been to a/c this year.)
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

Caesars offers seem good for a mid-level player like I am. But they seem to be about the same.............just MORE often. I have to travel there so, comps are 3-5 days free hotel with various offers that amount to a $200 to $250 in kicker for table games for me. Either in dining credit; free play; or an electronic worth about the same. The only issue I found with free play vouchers is that they are $50 each. Do I want to always bet that? LOL
