Hmm.

This is what the Palms started running at the beginning of the year:



I just noticed this on the revamped Boyd club site:

Here's the source of the Palms photo:

They squeezed her so she's holding a card, but this is it.


I'm sure the Boyd photo is also on iStockPhoto....

I'm sure it is stock. Someone in Boyd advertising should be paying closer attention. There are billboards for the Palms. Have been for months.

Only one answer. She no longer likes the Palms and has decided to only gamble at Boyd casinos.

I like the look on her face, its the casino
advertising look. If you ever saw somebody
with that expression in real life, you'd think
she was deranged.

I'm not sure if it is still the case, but driving down Sahara Blvd., about a half mile apart, were billboards for a dentist and a short-term loan place, both with the same model.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

That should not be surprising. Anyone needing to pay cash to a dentist will likely need a short term loan.

It's not the first time Boyd has done that... they used some stock photos of a 50-year old couple enjoying each other at a casino and I've seen the same pictures used by Penn National as well. Granted, they were two different markets (East Peoria, and Kansas City) but they were definitely the same picture.

Gee, which is more painful ? Going to the dentist or catching up on a payday loan ?

Or one could think of the Loan Company's advertisement .... and its collection method.
