    Many of us had reduced comp offers for play that had stayed the same or even increased, typically going from 3 free nights and some goodies like a coupon for an airplane shot at the gift shop, or a turn on Jackie Guaghan's lap during his daily poker stint.

    In my case, I was removed to casino rate.

    See for yourself how horrible the offers got!

    Well, in the trips that followed, including the one 3 weeks ago, I pretty much dropped in to get any free play I had, play a few minutes, and stroll out. I haven't stayed there since the Spring Jilting.

    But guess what??!!!

    My offers for next quarter have been restored! 3 nights comped (including Cabana Lime Green Suites), $25 free play, $25 food, and a turn on Jackie's Lap (weather permitting).

    Isn't it weird that after hammering dollar play for hours I got dropped to casino rate, and then after stiffing them, I'm back to 3 comped nights and a Jackie ride.

    I'm happy though, I like staying there. I just have to figure out how to get them to comp Le Thai.

    The offers did go way up for the last quarter of the year. The one I received today is great.

    The thing about casino rates on the offers was if you earned 2,000 per day, they'd comp your room. I know I always get the amount they require.

    I think its a buck a point at the El Cortez.

    I knew I would be able to get my rooms comped, it was the principle of the thing. And you can't get a turn on Jackie's lap unless it is part of an up-front offer.
