I believe that I just recieved the worst mailer in the history of casino marketing. The sender is the San Ysabel casino located North East of San Diego I visited once maybe 8 weeks ago and lost $100 in about 40 minutes of BJ. This is a small casino. From my memory I would say they have maybe 250 machines or so, one bar, one pit with 6 or 8 tables, only 2 of which, BJ and 3CP were open when I was there on a Thursday evening. The mailer was a postcard that informed me I am a Table Games VIP:

The red circles on the right side are match play coupons. They are perforated and you place the coupon on top your stack of chips, it is the same diameter as a chip. I eagerly flipped the post card and saw this:

HAHAHAH!!!! What a terrible marketing error. I cropped the photo so as to not share my address, but the other side of the postcard had my information and and offer for a $9 surf and turf (possibly a good deal). I don't know how this kind of mistake could happen. Anyone else ever recieved a mailer offering them a coupon for $0 in match play or slot play?

HAHAHA. I kind of am tempted to show up and try to play it. Probably smarter to tweet them the picture and make a fuss, maybe they will give me a consolation prize.

Since it's match play, put it down in the betting circle, atop nothing, and insist they deal you a hand. I mean a contract is a contract.

John,
I would keep and cherish that doozie. Precious!!!

Obviously, there is a ratings computer program that is miscalculating the amounts of the free bets/match plays to be printed.
Or, you have an enemy in the computer room.

Or perhaps that is what your action last time there equated to.

And to make matters worse, they are only worth about half of face value. ;)
