    All 4 are Boyd's & use the same BConnected card, right?

    In the past I have played at Fremont, MSS & Cal, but only get offers from the Fremont.

    I like it there, close to everything, but wonder about the others.
    Is there a strategy to get offers from the others? I never even get a random email from them.

    Wondering if my play at the other 3 is wasted, since I only hear from the Fremont.

    Any advice?? Trip is next week, want to do it right for the future trips. Thanks all.

    P. S.... Hard to pass on the D & 4Q since I like to play in those spots too. What's the best way to go??? I like that there are no resort fees at Fremont.

    Same card, but you are rated different from GC/Orleans vs Downtown.
    2 diff reservation systems too, so you can book MSS back-to-back with GC or Orleans.

    You should have a HOME casino.
    If you want another, or offers from another Boyd, let slot folks know, and play mostly there.

    I play mostly @ MSS and Giold Coast,
    I get ALOT of offers from both, PLUS Orleans.

    I am Emerald, as of last year.

    No random emails from all casinos for me either. But the offers are there.

    As far as I know, the Fremont, The Cal and MSS share marketing offers.

    Although Sam's Town is a Boyd property, they send out their own marketing offers. Just as Suncoast and Southpoint do.

    Whatever play you give any Boyd property accumulates on your card but room offers are treated individually for each casino - except the 3 downtown, they market together.

    From my experience , the strategy might be to check your ONLINE offers.
    https://www.bconnectedonline.com/my-home-page

    Even though the Fremont is listed on my account as my home casino (it's where I signed up for my BConnected card), for every offer I get from the Fremont, the same is offered ONLINE for the other Boyd casinos downtown.

    If you have an offer from the Fremont but don't have an online account set up, I bet if you phone BConnected reservations, you could get the same offer at the other casinos.

    I've never stayed at any of the 3 Boyd hotels (though booked a room at MSS once to check it out) but the 3 casinos have all been available to me for comped rooms when viewing the online offers.

    MSS is my home casino and my on-line offers are the same there or at Cal. But, if I select Fremont, I have no free room offers at all. Just $27 rooms for Emerald members.

    I also have on-line offers from Orleans and Suncoast.

    I switched my home casino from Fremont where I got my Bconnected card years ago to SAMs Town Shreveport. I have no desire to stay in the hotel as I don't need a hotel when I visit there. I do gamble there occasionally and get a small amount of free play and food. Should I switch to MSS which is somewhere I wouldn't mind getting offers from?

    I noticed this weekend that I accumulated enough card points to upgrade to Sapphire, so went to the MSS players club because I noticed I wasn't getting double points. Melissa, the helpful player's club supervisor said it was because Sam's Town Tunica was my home casino, although I haven't been there in years. She filled out the proper paperwork to change my home casino to MSS, and the card was upgraded the next day.
