    My wife and I are planning on visiting Sams Town for the first time when we come over from the UK next week for our annual fortnight. On previous threads we have read that they ran special offers for over 50's, but as of today I can no longer see any mention of this on their own website - does anyone know if these offers have been scrapped for 2015?

    Also, although we may spend up to say 3 hours each day on slots e.g. Wheel of Fortune 25c., max 3 coins each spin, would that make us eligible for any freebies, say a free buffet, 2 for 1 buffet, or a free cinema ticket, all of which seem easier to earn at Boyd casinos compared to the big Players Clubs? We also plan to visit and play at MSS and Gold Coast during our stay, but if this type of play is too insignificant to be of any use then there's no point in signing up, many thanks.

    As we are from overseas, would that rule out any chance of email offers for free nights stay etc. for future visits as we would genuinely consider staying off- Strip for the first time if the offers were good enough?

    Happy New Year to everyone, see you soon!

    Hi there,

    ACG publishes a list of ongoing promotions. Here's the current list:

    http://www.americancasinoguide.com/vegas-values/vegas-values-report-for-january-4-2015.html

    50+ promotions look like they happen on Wednesdays at Sam's Town, and Thursday at the Downtown Grand.

    Here's a brief description of how the regular point system works for Boyd:

    When you sign up with Boyd you receive 1 point per $1 coin in. If you eat at a Boyd restaurant (including the buffets) you get a 40% discount if you pay with points.

    I'm not a slot player, so I'm not sure how many spins per hour is typical. Let's say you and your wife each do about 300 spins per hour for 3 hours. $.75 per spin.

    .75 * 2 * 300 * 3 = $1350 coin in per day = 1350 points = $2.25 worth of food discounts.

    So at that level of play you could earn a free breakfast or lunch after about 4 days.

    Hope that helps. Enjoy your trip!

    DF

    If you're over 50, they have a day for seniors where they give a TON of perks..I THINK it used to be Wednesday, but with 2015 that may change...but they definitely still will do it (Sams Town Target Demographic is 50+)

    Hey Now!
    the name of Boyd's program is Young at Heart. It's listed under that at the websites. It's Wed at Sam's, Suncoast, and Orleans. It's Monday AND Wed at Gold Coast.
    I'll be staying at Sam's on the 15th, and the 20th-23rd. Orleans 16th-20th.
    Just look for the 50-something hippie with the beads and denim overalls. Stop by and say "Hey Now!"
    Or send me a PM....
     
    HEY NOW! NYE in AC!!!!!!!

    young at heart days are great! You can earn free buffets for breakfast and dinner. Usually 100 points will get you both. They also give you a movie ticket for $4 and for 200 points I believe you get a free gift. Orleans and gold coast also have free gift days once a week. On our last trip my wife and I filled a carryon bag with free stuff from the 2 casinos plus got all the free food and you don't have to give up any points to get the free stuff. One dollare equals 1 point so it doesn't take a lot of play to be elligable. You can also use your points at gift shops and to pay for food on other days. You get 40% off if you pay with points for food. I think they also have point multiplyer day on young at heart day. Just swipe your card at a kiosk before you begin playing to activate your multiplier. Have a great time!

    Just thought I would add the B-Connected Site has all the information on Senior Perks, like the previous posters mentioned.
