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.
I was at the Trop over Super Bowl weekend. They have 6 $1 9/6 BP machines between the table games area and the Akhbar Lounge.
I was already a member of their old program so was not eligible for the $200 even the odds promotion. My wife easily lost $200 and received $100 in free play which she lost in half the time it took to lose the first $200.
Also, I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the $500 applies to table games also. Which is ripe for "cheating" You can probably pocket $200-$300 in chips pretty easily in the course of a few hours at a $5-$10 table. They end up reporting you as losing $500, but you only really lost $200. You get $500 in freeplay, and turn that into $400 or so, and you just won a bunch of money risk free.
Good luck to anyone who gets a chance to try it !
I think it is interesting, and a good sign of increasing competition
amongst casinos, that there seem to be more good deals like this
2 weeks later i did the same, and was even luckier. My first bet of 50.00 netted me 100.00 in chips, so i continued to bet the vouchers plus played the 100 i had just won on the dragon (the table i was at was at hand 60 with only 1 dragon so far back at hand 22). After 2 more winning hands I upped my Dragon bet to 20. DRAGON! 8 beautiful black chips. I played the rest of my vouchers out and walked from that table with over 1,000 in chips. I ate a comp dinner at burger bros (amazing) won 140 at ultimate hold em, and cashed out. about 1,500 in overall winnings played all on the houses money (that used to be mine), but nonetheless, ANYONE WHO EVER GAMBLES AT A CASINO SHOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANY PROMO LIKE THIS IF THEY EVER SEE ONE. gives you 2 chances to gamble the same amount of money; if you are willing to gamble at the boat when you have only one chance at winning, any moron with half a brain can see the advantage in getting a 2nd chance at it. Also, does anyone notice that it was easy to win at the boat with the boats money? makes you wonder
This promo is still going on...it was not just a Anniversary thing!
haha, yep. Just was there Saturday (first time in ~6 months), and it looked like the promo details are painted/wallpapered? on an area above the casino entrance. I got over $100 in "mycash" out of it as well since I dutifully collected it from my future offers before I got cut off. I dropped $350 the first day and grinded 95% of it back. I have had many "free" meals and beers at the 1904 Beerhouse thanks to this promo. :D
