Mount Airy in the Poconos is the worst with this kind of Bait and Switch.

They advertise on the website "Free Play Day" - Simply come in on this day and receive up to $500 free slot play.

Then at the bottom in fine print, it says *For Invited Patrons Only*

If you call them and ask whether you're invited, they say "You'll have to come in and talk to your host"

And like the OP said, if you happen to be one the CHOSEN ones, you get minimum offer or some lame prize like a $10 food credit.

Same with their "Free Gifts", it will take you several hours to earn them on the tables or you can blow hundreds on the slots and get it in under 2 hours! Then you get to stand in a line going around the lobby and almost reaching the other side of the casino floor.


All that for a set of Tupperware!!! Thanks Mount Airy!)*(#!)!

I would say, "No, you can transfer me to my host or tell me now whether or not I'm invited. If I'm not invited, that's fine, but if you're not willing to tell me on the phone, then you guys will just never see any action at all from me again."

Could be an empty threat, doesn't matter, but should get them to tell you one way or another.

Well I stand corrected. Tonight I tried 4 more times and received $10 each time. However, a lady next to me won $100 free play. Can't say that I wasn't jealous.

I watched someone hit $1000 on one of these at Mohegan Pocono. I was 2 in line back of her.

In most jurisdictions if they show you the amount behind the choices you didn't choose, it is a fair game and your selection determines the outcome. If they don't show you the other values, the amount was probably predetermined and the selection made no difference.
