    I think it would be nice to make a section with current promos and offers. For example the old cosmo cover your 100 loss.
    This way we can all find out what the best promos are and if they are still available when we are coming out.

    Side story, a local casino here offered 60 in slot play for 30 which could be redeemed each day. So if you came at 11 pm you could go back up at 12 am and get another 60. This was the best promotion I ever seen. You could basically free roll on the house. Sure you had to play through it once, but if you do 30 2$ bets on a slot you are very likely to hit something or at worst break even.

    We went every chance we could. I guess they assumed you'd come out, lose the gratuity, then put more in since it's an hour drive from everywhere? Book load up the car it's 8 disciplined friends and you all get a shot.

    Suffice it to say, the casino pulled the promotion early. They said they'd do it ded 1-20 but hey pulled it on the 9th. Lame! Saw a bunch of people complaining about it on their fb page. https://www.facebook.com/StCroixCasinos
    Anyway, would love a thread or an entire section where we can announce promos,and strategies to attack the promos.

    I like this thread idea. I would recommend keeping an updated list in the original post. I would also recommend a 'Vegas Hacks' section of sorts, where a profitable method isn't necessarily promoted, but it's just a nice-to-know trick.

    Promos I plan on using in my trip in 2 weeks:
    > Plaza 5% rebate on ATM withdrawals up to $1k
    > 1,000 points to get a hoodie at Downtown Grand
    > MSS awarding VP quads with scratchcards

    I think it would be great to have as a reference, but an absolute bear to keep updated coherently with strategies and details.

    Westie posts the weekly links of updates from ACG and LVA in the Casino Gaming section. Those two publications are full-time and for-profit information providers, and even they are not always complete.

    (And thanks, Westie.)

    Wait! Plaza is doing this now? Not just the ElCo?
    I may have to do all my ATM-ing this trip while I'm downtown!
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    The problem with this kind of sticky is having someone who is able to keep it current.

    I think that Westie's weekly post is a fantastic place to start. You can certainly add to that thread every week and have your discussion there.

    Sorry, ElCo. For some reason I mix those two up.

    That's a shame... I was thinking that, with both of them doing it, I could pull from both & make enough in rebates to pay for all of my cab fares for the trip!

    You could always get a 2nd job with Clark County and get 5 % back with paycheck cashback!

    I always use ATMs on my trips...it's my method for budgeting myself.
    The El-Co deal was always kind of sweet, but it's capped at one use (per week?)...something like that.
    If the Plaza (or any other downtown casino) offered the same deal, I'd get two uses per trip instead of one.
