So what is YOUR issue darkoz? Are you wanting to collect the bonus while not gambling? lol.

I gotta tell ya, early in my blackjack career, I used those buses as my mode of transportation from Philly to AC. I absolutely hated the fact that the bus was filled with stinky homeless people just riding back and forth collecting the bonuses while having a place to get some sleep on the way. So I would say this policy is about a decade too late (for my liking).



Agreed 200%

Bally's AC just went paperless, at least for bus arrivals from Philadelphia.

I was in Philly this morning for an AP opportunity, then took the Greyhound Lucky Streak down to AC. They swiped my card at the bus arrival kiosk, and told me the $20 free slot play was loaded on my card.

No more $20 Express Play Coupons.



Yes I couldn't understand this coupon thing.

Over here for many years now they sign you up for a player's card with your photo on it in less than 5 minutes. A one time matter.

They then load up your card with the complementary credits. There is no way of telling when you have played through your CC and they would only allow you to cash out what remains on your card after that.

As in other postings on this site it is a criminal offence to play with other people's card.

I know at Trump Taj Mahal, they will freeze your account(s) if you try to combine free play.

For instance, you download the $30 bus bonus slot play onto one machine, then remove your card, add your companions card and download their $30 bus bonus & start playing the 60 credits combined. You will not be allowed to download future bus bonuses on EITHER card until you go to the front desk, show ID and have the account(s) unlocked.

But I don't think they can FORCE you to play cash out of pocket, regardless the amount, to keep you eligible for future bus bonuses.

It wouldn't surprise me if they were trying to enforce a policy for that, but I'm fairly certain they can not FORCE people to play cash in a slot machine or table just to be eligible for future bus bonuses.

The bus bonus is sold by the Bus company and honored by the casino, and the bus co. would never be able to keep track of who has violated the proposed rule or not. So they would be printing these bus voucher coupons out everytime and the rider would be under the impression that they are getting the bonus , despite their previous visit(s).

I'm sure if they would TRY to enact this, the backlash would be tremendous. The bus companies would start to lose business and threaten to terminate their contracts, forcing the casino to go back to original method. Even AC casinos aren't THAT desperate to get people to part with a $20 bill!

Actually, yeah, I sometimes do take the bus bonus without gambling. I have a hustle and it involves me being anonymous so while I am gambling I don't use my players card.

I don't drive and everyone is handed a bus bonus coupon upon boarding. They really need to honor that.



Sounds like you are really upset about that 20 from the bus

Stuff like writing a big multi part series about how the bus coupons are being exploited seems foolish when you still use the coupons. Looks like they might have finally learned.



So true
