    Just curious if anyone gets regular mailings or promos from 4Qs. I signed up for the Royal Players Club a bit over a year ago and I never hear from them.

    I have signed up for a card at every joint downtown and I get mailers and room offers from almost everyone. The only other place that has not offered me outright free nights is the GN. Probably due to the fact they don't see a lot of me.

    Heck, on my last trip did not spend a dime with Plaza/LVC and they are offering me 2 free nights.

    I find it odd that 4Qs/Binions don't do anything in the way of promotion. Anyone here also not feeling the love?

    BTW. I called the 4Qs and they said they only send mailers to those who qualify for offers. I don't spend a ton of money there, but I played enough that my two biggest slot cashouts on my last trip were from the 4Qs.

    I don't know what to say. I get monthly mailings from them for 2-3 nights free and $40 in free play. I usually only give them about 4 hours of play on Sundays when football is on. I stay at MSS, but always double book the 4Q.

    $1 VP for 4 hours or so, 1 day per trip.

    In fact we each got an offer in the mail the other day and my wife plays on my card. Hers was 2 nights and $20 in freeplay. But they have/had the promotion going that if you showed a player's card from another casino, they would give you $10 in free play. She did that, used up the $10 on her card and switched back to mine. Now she got an offer.

    What happen if you show them multiple top cards from other casinos, would you get more than $10? And is this promo one per person or can it be done multiple times?

    One time only and only 1 card, so $10 bucks max.

    Like Joe, I get regular mailers from Four Queens plus tournaments and some other offers from time to time.

    I think you just haven't hit the coin-in threshold.

    Any idea how much coin-in you played there?

    I never get anything from them, and I play a decent amount too IMO, for the same or less play I get offers at the boyd places and el-cortez.

    I probably play 5X more $$$$ than my wife at 4Q's and I do not get any offers. She gets two nights/$25 offers from them every couple months.

    I really don't know what my coin-in is. I go to Vegas about every 6 months.
    I know that at Binion's I dumped around $500 into penny slots in a short period of time. As for 4Qs, I probably did not invest more than $300 with them on my last trip. I found a couple of machines where I was able to play $1.50 to $1.80 a spin for several hours. I would guess that my total play was somewhere in the 2k neighborhood. I know this is not considered huge play, but I would think that it would be worth some promotional information or an occasional email.

    Considering that their website is pretty stale and the fact that others here have had similar experiences, it appears that marketing is not their strong suit.

    Experience with Four Queens and Binions

    I have been playing at the Four Queens and Binions for 12 years (off and on) and here is my experience:

    I have only ever received one decent comp in those 12 years and that was for a dinner at Hugo's Cellar plus $200 in free play and 4 free nights. Otherwise, I get the odd $20 every 6 months or so in free play. I find them to be the worst in comping. That is just my experience.

    Four hours of .25 VP play a day at Four Queens for my 3 day visits the past few years has gotten me regular offers of $200 free play and meals in Magnolias and Chicago Brewing Company during my stay. The offers used to include one meal at Hugo's Cellar.

    I play almost exclusively the full pay 10/7 DB in the back of the casino. I get 3 nights free a month including weekend nights and generally one other offer of a three night weekend slot tournament that includes 3 free nights.
    Generally, I book around these comps. Last trip I booked at the end of October and then added three nights in November because I figured that I would get those for free also.
    I booked 3 nights over the weekend there, then 4 on a 2 for 1 at the D, then 3 more at the Four Queens. That gave me 10 nights and I booked the other 2 at the El Cortez Cabana using an American Casino Guide coupon. So the cost of 12 nights, taxes and everything, was $149.

    Also, by booking in two months I doubled my free play. $80 in October and $80 in November. Cashback total was $45.

    I like it because it is also a good location for 2 AM live poker at the G Nugget. 2am to 2pm they double the bonus hand progressives. I hit for quad jacks when the progressive was $250 so that gave me $500.

    The downside is that they don't mail until the last minute. Also, I winter in Florida and never see a mailing because those cheaper mailings don't get forwarded. So, often I have to book a backup and then cancel. This past time I waited a long while for the November offers.

    However, they have a unique host set up. Lower rollers like me don't have an assigned host. I just call the main number and ask for the host number. Whoever answers the phone will be happy to look to see my current offers. They will book for me as well.

    An added benefit is that they will allow early entry if they have a room. And if they don't, they will let me lock up a room that will be open. I like those with numbers ending in 26 in the South Tower because they are quiet and the TV is against an end wall so that it won't bother anyone if I am up in the night and need to be entertained.

    The D is so close that moving luggage between them is less of a walk than changing rooms in most large casinos. That allows me to make more than one trip if I want, so I don't have to pack as carefully as I might for a ride on the bus to the Orleans.

    So, I stop in early and see how things are going. If they give me a room, I do the bedbug check with no luggage, see everything is as I want, and then head down for my luggage at the D.
    And the D also allows early check in. Two trips ago I got all befuddled on time. My first night was at the El Cortez and I was 3 hours off on my time. I actually went to the D desk, checked in, got my room and got settled before I realized they had given me a room as early as 9 AM.

    There is no reason to be in the dark about what comps you might qualify for. Just call a host and ask. They can advise you on how much play you need to get comps. And while they don't send out mailings, they can guess at whether you can expect to get one. They always assure me I will.

    Also, I have at times booked with cash and let that be my backup in case my freebie did not come through. They gave me great weekend prices then too.

    Finally, I found out that if I wanted to play poker and earn a poker rate from Binions, I could book with that and it would not affect my Four Queens daily average. So, I could book Thursday, Friday, Saturday for free and then pay the poker rate for Sun-Mon-Tues-Wed and if I drifted into a new month, book the Thursday-Friday-Saturday nights and probably negotiate for the same room.
    I found the 2-4 games a bit difficult at Binions and I hate being tied into playing in one place in case the games are not good table selection. But it is an option if the D stops giving 2 for 1 deals with no resort fee.
