In an effort to be friendly, here is the unreal promotion going on at River City Casino in St. Louis.

Play $500 on the house:

"Free money is always a good thing.

Get yours on March 5 when your losses will be reimbursed up to $500! Must be a myChoice member."

The $500 will get put back as free slot play. But hey, $500 for anyone, not just new members.

If anyone decides to do this, let me know how it goes. Good luck!

The key is the term "up to".....a lot of casino offer this to new members, but what happens is that you play the first day, and then go back to the player's club and they randomly generate an amount from say $5-$500 to give back to you.....the odds are stacked against getting the $500 amount though.....

I don't believe this to be the case.

One can recieve up to $500, not more.

The key is that it is a freeplay, so if one does lose 500, they will get 500 in freeplay.

This is basically a free shot at hitting a big jackpot, or if one gets up say 300 or more, cash out.

I recently started a thread in the Tropicana section about a similar promotion for up to 200 dollars in freeplay for 200 in real losses, the caveat being half of the free play would be awarded (and must be used) that day and the other half would be available the following month, good up to one year (I guess to bring people back). The consensus opinion was to look for the best VP available for your freeplay, but during phase one you might as well go for a high risk/high reward game (as JIMMY states). That's what I plan on doing.

Do you have to be a new MyChoice member?

I went for that promotion, and was dabbling at various machines. I couldn't really find a $ or $5 machine that had very good payouts.
At one point, I put my $180 tito in a penny machine and played at 100 bets. After a small win on the first hand, I noticed my balance
was over $400! Yes, it was a $1 machine and I had played 1 hand at $100. Thought it was time to leave, which I did. It pays to be stupid at times.

That's what I'm hoping happens to me as well! Hit something nice so I can just ignore the promotion. Just FYI, VPFree2 says the only good payout at $ or $5 is the 8/5 BP in the high limit area.

Also, I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the $500 applies to table games also.

EDIT - LOL. I guess I'll just end it with that comment. I'm not going back to STL for this promotion, but I guess I shouldn't ruin it for everyone else.
