    If I buy 3 or 4 ACG books or trade for this coupon, will I be able to use it multiple times on my next trip? Basically how close do they check or are they even able to keep track of when you use it?

    Also the question applies to other coupons especially the free slot plays. I assume that is easier for them to "track" since they have to add the play to your card.

    I've used multiple 60-for-50 coupons at the Nugget within a year. They have that coupon in the hotel coupon book that you sometimes get, they have it in ACG and I've never seen them run a card. You just hand 'em the coupon and some amount of money over $50 and they give you chips for your cash + $10.

    I've never done that, but I don't think they watch too carefully and you cash in at the cashier and not at the same place where the chips are issued.
    I have bought it with the coupon and waited forever for a seat, walking about with my chips. I thought then that it would be easy enough to cash out and not be noticed.
    However, it is a great promotion and I'd not want to spoil it. It is a good room, especially for limit. Sometimes the bonus awards are huge. I played with a fellow who caught 4 queens last trip. The bonus was $333 and it happened to be in the hour that the house doubled it, so this guy playing 2-4 got $666 on just 4 queens.
    If you like kill pots, so do most of the players. Also it is a place where a 3-6 game can be found.
    And at the end of 4 hours of play, you can ask and be given a $10 food voucher. Late night they will date it for the next day. The voucher is also a line pass. It won't cover the entire buffet, but it gets most of it on breakfast weekdays when there is no rise in price and no specials.

    I agree with the other posts so far. We've used the coupons on back to back days and they didn't bat an eye. Also as indicated, they don't check for the ACG card, and there's really no record of you using the coupon. I tend to think if you sat down with the extra $10, payed 1 round and left they wouldn't care.

    As for other places and coupons, like match plays, I have been asked for the ACG card and the coupon has also been tied to my players card. At those places, 1 coupon per year was the limit, but that's only happened a few times, at one of the downtown casinos at the end of Fremont, but for the life of me I can't remember which one off hand.

    The 200 points at Gold Coast and Sam's for a free buffet are only once a year. Once I even asked at the Player's club at the GC and the clerk said, "Just play and come back" only then to look me up and tell me I'd played 6 months ago. Because of such rampant coupon abuse, more and more casinos are linking the redemption to once a year via Player's Club. It is the same at those places for the matchplays.
