    Going to Vegas this week and my partner is having a May Birthday. Is there a list somewhere of the freebies or free play offered during a players visit if it falls on their Birthday?

    Thanks for any helpful response.

    Damn! you said helpful response.
    I was going to say free "Happy Birthday" greeting at checkin from CET desk clerk for each guest who identifies its their birthday.

    CET has given me some minor perks, like a nice little token after check sent to room, desert or some little cake. Free desert at CET restos. Then again this was years ago, now even being a high tier diamond doesn't even get me a call from the host on duty or a fly by in the casino.

    I wouldnt expect anything, and be surprised if you are offered something, unless you are a high roller.

    Gold Coast ... Just swipe player's card at kiosk, select birthday promo for free points.

    Orleans ... Earn 1 point, and then swipe card at kiosk for points.

    South Point ... Earn 1 point, and automatically get 2500 free points put in account, with no swipe necessary.

    Four Queens ... Used to award 2/1 meal at Magnolia's. Not sure if that is still awarded.

    Was that when you signed up as well? And if so...are you sure it wasn't just a sign up bonus?

    I was in Vegas for my 40th and 42nd. I got bubkus. Nada. Zilch. Not even a deck of cards or a free dessert.

    Venetian gave me a bottle of champagne when I was staying there near my Birthday (within 2 weeks) on a semi comped room (comped weekday room, weekend was on me.)

    Cheap sparking white wine, but it was OK. Had a Grazie label on it. The only annoyance was that you couldn't put it in the fridge to cool it since the fridge was full of mini-bar stuff and the ice bucket wasn't big enough for the bottle.

    That's when you turn one of the sinks into a huge ice bucket!
    3 trips to the ice machine, throw the bottle in the sink, and cover it with a bath towel or 2.

    My friends call me MacGyver. lol

    Haha, I was going to reply with this exact response, til I saw yours....I do this pretty much every hotel I'm in except Vegas, since there is free booze downstairs 24/7, plus there's usually a fridge. Great drunken minds think alike! :beer:

    That's because the digital scrolling message display near your players card will wish you a Happy Birthday if you play on your BD. I noticed it last year and nearly every CET casino wished me a happy one!

    Nope, I've been an MLife member and former Player's Club member for years. My B-day is January 23, which often falls very close to MLK Day and I like to plan Vegas trips around it.

    Luxor birthday spin - I have recently read they are still doing this, for current and new members.

    I will report back in August!

    They are still doing this, even for current members. Did this 3 days ago for my birthday. Walked up to the Mlife desk at Luxor, told the lady it was my Birthday and asked her if I get a free wheel spin. So I won $25 FP and turned that into $37 playing a Double Triple Diamond $1 slot machine at 1 credit a spin!
    Then proceeded to lose all that on the new Timber Wolf Deluxe machines from Aristocrat. :cry:

    How about a free birthday burger at Red Robin?

    As for chilling a bottle of sparkling wine, how 'bout using the trash can filled with ice?

    Do they check your ID to confirm its your birthday? And does it literally have to be exactly your birthday?

    Yes and yes! Your Mlife players card has your birthdate in the system for clarification. They always ask for ID when you show your players card at the desk.
    If you do NOT have an Mlife card, and you will be there on your birthday, I recommend that you sign up for one online, then go and pick it up in Vegas.
