    Wynn Encore has a free daily slot tournament. You can enter the tournament after earning 500 points and then as a participant, you will be given two free buffet passes. (Once you sign up for the tournament, you are given the free buffet passes. There is no requirement to actually show up for the tournament if you don't want to.)

    The tournament is fun and their buffet is very good! This is a pic of the rules from last July, it's probably very similar now.

    Is it 1 point per dollar? Does anyone know the VP point equivalents?

    I got this in Aug last year so lets hope they run it over to the summer again :peace:
    Their buffet is very good and, for me, 500 points wasnt that hard to accumulate with a few hours of regular play, I missed it the first day through ignorance :grrr: but got it on the second. The mashing of buttons for 3 mins is quite energising :evillaugh

    $5-15/point for VP. (The official line is $6-15 but every single "regular" $5 and above machine in the HL room at Wynn and Encore give you a point for every $5 bet.)

    For video poker, it depends on the machine. For some machines, a $5 or $6 "spin" will net you one point. On others, it takes $15 to get one point.

    I *think* (but don't quote me) that slots pay 2 points for every $3 bet. So you'd accumulate 2 points for every three $1 spins.

    Last year we were eating at the buffet when my husbands time for his daily slot tournament came up. He almost did not go because we never win and just wanted the buffet. He did win and did pretty good with the free play he won. We spent it all in the high roller room and won a small jackpot making our day. Glad it is back.

    Just got back from Vegas so just seeing your question JGates8 but the promo is identical to the previous ones, i.e., what Gambler posted. My sense is that the promo will continue for some time but they have periodic black out dates during holiday times or when there are a lot of conventions in town. I arrived in Vegas on Friday, April 1st and it was not going on at the time but was told it would start up "next week" and, sure enough, after earning points early in the am on Monday, the 4th, I was able to get my 2 buffet passes.

    The weekend of the 1st you had the auto dealers convention, some doctors convention and American Country Music show events going on in Vegas so from their perspective there was no need to run a "promo" during that weekend.
