    Has anyone used this coupon at Ellis Island?
    How does it work?
    The coupon states that you get a $25 "pit chip" for a $100 buy-in, what am I buying into?
    Is this for any table game?
    Can I buy in for $100 and get my pit chip, play the chip and then cash out my $100?
    I am not saying that is what I will do, I was just wondering if it could be done that way.

    Thank you

    This is how it worked in May when we were there:

    Buy in for $100 and pull the coupon out of your book. The pit boss will look at the coupon and OK it. The coupon then becomes your pit chip and you can use it at any time - it's basically a $25 bet.

    I played a few hands and then used my coupon. Can't remember if I won or lost, but I think I won. Cashed out and moved on. I didn't use it as my first (and only) bet, but I'm sure others do. I'm a firm believer in hit and run, but this is a pretty spicy coupon and I didn't want to do that with this one.

    HTH.

    Cheers,
