    I will definitely check that out for next trip.

    a great bacon and egg breakfast and a few slots would be great.

    Where did you see that? I don't see it anywhere on their website. Was it an email they sent you?

    So is it OK for the cabbie to long haul you on this trip?

    There is a note in the email to check the player's club for terms. It my behoove someone planning to take advantage of this promo to call the players' club for the rules (e.g. how long do you have to present the receipt?) on this promo.

    You haven't had a cabbie with an foreign accent yet? I think I'm 3 for 6...lol They did speak English well enough to understand asking for a receipt though.

    LOL Not from McCarran, but if he keeps you under $20, sure why not? :evillaugh

    This promotion is legit.
    Just did it last night.
    Ellis Island was absolutely hopping.
    They are doing a lot of things right, and drawing pretty big crowds of people from the strip for the steak special and cheap gaming.
    We walked from Bally's once and took a cab once to try this promo, and was a pretty constant stream of tourists walking to and from EI.

    Was wondering if any 'recent' cab receipt from Vegas would do-- or does it have to be a cab to Ellis Island, or dated that day?

    Anyone know how much you would get in slot play for say a $10 receipt?
