Yep, thanks for that. And for anybody in the Midwest, Four Winds about 30 miles east of Chicago is offering a $400 loss rebate. That's real losses, not net losses, and they will do it for less than $400. Great promo, bring your friends.



I think we are going to try and check this out next week. I plan on posting
how it goes for us.

Isn't their rebate in the form of a freeplay mailer sent about a week after the loss? I think that is how it was explained to me last year at their players club.

Its for new players only. If you have a card already, you're screwed.

Nicest Indian casino I've been in, on a par with anything in Vegas. Best hotel room I ever stayed in, and that includes Vegas.

Just got back, my wife and brother went with me. I'll have to wait and see
how we do during part 2, after we get the rebate details and get back there.

Impressions:

- New and Very Nice.

- Every staff person we met was very friendly and helpful. So I think that attitude
is probably (hopefully) instilled by the management and part of a customer
service philosophy.

- Easy and plentiful self-parking.

- It was in a nice wooded setting, just off of I94.

Video Poker:

- There was a 9/6 JoB Triple Play in the High Limit Slots area, it was a $1 denomination.

- I think most of the 25 cent JoB VP was 8/5.

- The $ level was 9/5.

- I did see one 9/5 JoB with a progressive, also at the $ level.

Other:

- The buffet was $ 16 and we didn't try it.

When they opened in 2007, it was great. Now it consists of about 15 different dishes made from beans. I kid you not.

With the loss rebate in effect, we played some in the High Limit Slots area,
which was enough to get us into the player's lounge there and we had
some appetizers. Very cozy, gas fireplace, leather couches... Other-
wise, we probably would have tried the buffet.

We haven't gotten our letters with the rebate details yet,
but the score is Four Winds 3, Gamblers ( me, Mrs Q,
and my brother ) 0, so far.

We played with the goal of getting a Royal Flush,
or at least 4 dueces in Dueces Wild, and we didn't
hit.

So when we return, I think we'll play the money
through once, and decide whether to continue on
or cash out.

I am pretty amazed by this particular rebate offer.
The highest I had seen before in LV was at the
Stratosphere years ago, and more recently at
Arizona Charlie's for $ 100. I think Arizona
Charlie's changed the rules a bit since then.

I guess there is something at Terrible's now,
but I won't bother sorting out the details until
I have another trip planned to LV.
