FYI.

Promo Details

I don't know how well this has been advertised,
but well enough that when I was there a week
ago the line was way longer than I was willing
to wait.

In a nutshell, play 30 minutes ( yep, they check
that ) and earn 25 tier credits to get a free
buffet.

It is an average buffet by Las Vegas standards.

At Rincon they call it "Play and Chews". You earn 50 points and you get a free buffet or $20 to any food outlet of your choice. I like that better as I can go to the steakhouse for dinner and get a large chunk taken off the bill.

What steakhouse do you go to where $20 is a large chunk off the bill. I gotta go there.

This is a common Horseshoe promotion, used by all that I've played at except Tunica, where they give you a buffet for sitting down at a table game. It's also an occasional Harrah's promotion as well; it was offered at times at Harrah's Kansas City.

The buffet is okay; not great, but they do have a really cool Mac and Cheese order station that is really good. I'm not a big person of the buffet station concept, but I made the exception there both times I ate there. The dessert selection is pretty good too. Everything else is mediocre at best.

Well if a steak is $30-$40 plus $8 for a side, you are looking at a $45 bill per person, $20 is about 45% of $45.

This promotion is rediculous.

The stupid buffet closes at 10pm on weekends and I have to earn the points before I eat.

Call me Slow, but this is nothing more than an inducement to gamble there the NEXT day and lose some more.

I don't know how much adult language is allowed on the board, but that is "comp" is F-ing worthless.


As a side note, I have single $15 match play coupons from now until hell freezes over, but you only get one a week. That's almost worth printing, clipping, remembering, and actually playing.

Well I'm not dancin' in the streets over it either,
I just thought it was worth mentioning as an
fyi.

The line was so long for the (mediocre)
buffet when we were there, we didn't
use the comp. But I am HOPING that
they will still honor it if I get back there
in the next couple of weeks.

Let me know if they do, if so, then it was not quite so worthless.

Please be careful how much you trash this promotion. I don't think Horseshoe would be likely to change it, as they offer it at a lot of properties, but remember, THEY ARE OWNED BY CAESARS! Just try getting a free buffet for a half hour of play at Caesars, Harrah's or any property outside of a Horseshoe or in Tunica. The pit supervisor will probably be friendly and tell you that you'll need a "little more play," which means about 20 hours on a $50 BJ table.

Yes, it may seem like it's just a little, but it's a LOT more than what you get from most CET properties.
