    Received a promo for a drawing and reel rewards oct 12-14
    know people who on same dates received promo's for slot tournment, store giveaway, ect. If I went on the slot tournment code, once at the hotel would I be able to sign in at tr booth for the drawing. What I am trying to say do they overlap or is it always no two promo's on a trip?
    Also when you attend a slot tournment or poker tournment you know excatly what the odds are - 1650 entrants ect. (your odds are 1650 to 1 for the top prise) but thier is no way to figure odds on a drawing? On a drawing can you gamble at the various CET casino's and your bonus entries are entered?

    It's not possible to do both promos, I don't think. I never tried. But if you read the promo's, they say only with xxxxx code. My promo's always include 2, 3, or 4 night stays, so there is no way for me to book both.

    Just choose which ever promo sounds like the better one for you, then when you get there, do that promo first, then later on see if you can do the other one.

    You are correct about the slot tournaments odds, but the drawings are even harder IMHO. Here's a drawing for 10 free entries when you arrive. Then you get another drawing entry for every 25 Tier Credits you earn ($125 cycled through a slot machine).
    There are hundreds of people playing in this drawing, and some of them are spending $1000's of dollars and earning lots of entries. Your 12-18 tickets you earned that day are mixed in with those thousands of other virtual tickets.

    It all comes down to luck with either choice. I'd do the reel rewards for sure, and then see if you can get into one of the other 2. You can play a $5 slot with your reel rewards and try to make some $ out of it!

    promo's tournments ect.

    thanks that is what I though.
    recent diamond holder (this year) platium many years.
    been to many slot tournments (CET) at all casino's except Caesars & Paris (don't know why as i loose everywhere) tournments have run from over 2500 entrants to under 400 where they had to adjust the payouts because not enough entrants. on that one they gave reel rewards to 250 place and their were 348 entrants and i came in 345th! It seems now their are many more entrants at every event.
    have noticed that over the years the refreshments they give at the tournment have gotten worse. Recently one held at harra's by the front door they had only water, coffee and one waitress for drinks. The rio had almost a full buffet of goodies and bar in a confrence room upstairs but no more. the only one left that makes a effort is at the flamingo. no one seems to have a meeting to give out the prizes anymore, you just go to a tr center and swipe your card to see if you won. guess cutting cost everywhere.

    Rio this last trip did have coffee & rolls in the morning. Nothing the evening before during registration. (They had them set up in the door of the fancy restaurant (buzios?)).

    However, that tourney was a NIGHTMARE. I seriously considered not even standing in line to complete registration & get the $75 FP. Their system went down & they had no back-up in place. I waited over an hour & a half the first night - finally gave up. Waited the same the next morning - since everyone had to wait the line was horrid. The gentleman behind me told me he had worked his way up through about 8 levels of management the night before & was finally given a $100 food credit. He verified that with the 'suit' at the front of the registration line & he also took our name & card numbers (the ones close to this gentleman in line). By the time I got back to Paris I had a voicemail confirming the $100 food comp on my room. It bothered me that the only way you received it was if you did complain to the suit at the front of the line (I'm sure that's why he was standing there). If no one knew this, they didn't get the additional comp.

    They did give us a couple little treats. A bag of flavored popcorn during 2 rounds of the event & a 6 ct box of Ethel Ms in the 3rd.

    The last bingo tourney I played at Flamingo only had coffee & water - possibly soda.
