    Las Vegas bonuses and free money

    I am planning my first trip to las vegas for 5 days over thanksgiving break and want to take advantage of all the free money offers that I can. Free play for signing up for cards, coupons, discounted rooms, even free hats and meal. Especially match play coupons. that will help me greatly because I have a very small bankroll. I bought a copy of american casino guide and that has alot of good offers in there but was hoping some of you guys might know of even more that aren’t listed there. If you can’t post the info here, please send me a private message. thank you.

    ACG book is a great start. On top of that, make sure whenever you sign up for a card, provide your email address (make up one if you want), this way you can get additional freeplay at some casinos (i.e. Treasure Island). Always ask for fun books when you sign up, as these fun books might come with additional freeplays or matchplays. Some of them are contingent upon earning some points, but if you calculate the cost/benefit, you’ll see that most are positive expectation coupons.

    Make sure to visit Westin Casuarina, they had (confirmed as of July 4th weekend) a great promo, where they match your slot losses upto $50 in the form of free play, within 24 hours of your joining their player’s club. They also have a buy $25 get $40 promo, which is again positive expectation. They also give you $10 match play upon joining. Almost all other hotels have promos upon signing up for a card, but this was one of the best I’ve experienced.

    For big groups (MGM, Harrah’s) make sure to sign up at the member casino, which provides the highest freeplay (they can vary from $0 to $10 among the group casinos). To my knowledge, best MGM group freeplay is at Bellagio ($10), and best Harrah’s group freeplay is at Rio ($10). So, don’t sign up for these cards at say Luxor, or Caesar’s.

    Also, check this link:

    Good luck! Coupon run is a lot of fun, even if you’re chasing trivial amounts. It also makes you spend less money as you use most of your gambling time running from store to store to cash the coupons ) Unless of course you’re a pro with a large bankroll, in which case time is money.

    In addition to players card sign up bonuses and matchplay coupons, many places have wincard promotions where you purchase a wincard, which is a strategy card and pretty much useless for $20 and receive $30 in promotional chips, which are used just like real chips, except they can’t be cashed out. You have to play them to you lose. It’s like buying $30 worth of chips for $20. Can really help a small bankroll. HardRock, Mandalay bay, Luxor, Excalibur all have $30 chips for $20. Tropicana, circus circus, slot-of-fun, 4 queens, cannary, fiesta henderson, station casinos all have $15 chips for $10, palms has $45 chips for $30, sahara has $50 for $40. I’m sure there are others as well. Just ask for win card promotions.

    Anything else I can do to score comps, coupons, chips, tix? I’m going to Vegas soon and I can’t wait. It means a whole week away from my frustrating job!

    Are these typically found at the slot club desk?

    Yes, start at the slot club desk. They’ll usually check that your eligible, then send you to the cashier with some kind of printout.

    In the past, the Palms offer required you to be staying in their hotel. The other offers have no such restriction.

    Some places are once a year, some are once a month, some are once a lifetime.
    Whatever you do, do not follow any of the advice on this WIn cards.
    BTW- they also include a free $1 tip for the dealers.

    The roulette one is pretty accurate …

  • tensplitter

     

    Play the free slot machines outside Casino Royale for the $5 in match play, take it to a roulette wheel and bet a single number. Go back and get another coupon and keep doing it until the number hits. It might take an hour or two but you can expect to have a net win over $100.

    And the PC doesn’t get uneasy when the same person (on average) uses 36 match bet coupons? They even start questioning me if I use two matchplays back to back on a blackjack table (additional one I usually get from a friend who doesn’t use it).

    As far as I know, the machines outside CR are one spin per day. You might get away with one spin per shift for the person supervising them, but I can’t see getting more than a handful in any situation.

    What places are once per month?

    I honestly don’t remember, but back when I was really into couponing I’d go to a website that listed them. I know that at one point both the Edgewater and Colorodo Belle were once a month, but I have not been to either since they changed management. I believe Circus Circus is once a month but I might be confusing the WIN Card policy for the Fun book you can get from the store across from the Steakhouse.

    Jason is not spelled with a Y. At least not this Jason. ‘Shadroch’ isn’t spelled correctly either and I don’t think Flash posts much here any longer, so you are not doing to well. lol

    I bought you ACG and told you about the winchip promotions and that’s all I really know. I am not that knowledgeable in the bonus and coupon hawking field. I think if you take advantage of all the offers in ACG and all the winchip offers in and around vegas, that alone will be worth a couple hundred in EV, if you do it right. Not to mention it will take up much of your time here, chasing just those offers.

    Ventian, Harrahs, Golden Nugget, and several others give free slot play for new members.
    there are a number of websites that give advice on how to take advantage of promos such as these. Google is your friend.
    I’d start with a site called Las Vegas 4 newbies. I’m not sure its web address but google it
