Please help me through the process of claiming the 100 loss and how to play it exactly afterward. I am a poker player and table player, and never play slots. So clueless when it comes to the slot world. I tried to do the trop promo last year and basically couldnt figure out the correct way to do it and lost 200. I guess there were certain machines that didnt count towards the promo. They were just labled but I was not told anything about this when getting my card for the first time. Then WHen I finally played the correct machine, I coudlnt figure out how to use the money that was put back on the card. You had to put a code in when you put your card into the slot machine (again was not told this so had no idea until I sat there trying to figure it out for while and had to go back up to the desk) SO this time I want to be prepared since I will be taking my wife to sign up for a card for the first time, and I have a card but have never done this promo at cosmo so going to try it with her. I understand the whole if you dont lose the first day then you can come back the 2nd day to do it again. So if you put in 100 and get up to 200 cash out and the promo can be done again. So here are my questions. 1. Are there any slot or video poker machines that do not count towards this promotion. 2. Once you lose the 100, how do you use it and how do you get it put on your card to use. 3. After you loses the 100 do you have to put money into the machine or is the 100 on your card, and you play it (one slot promo I did years ago you had to put 1.00 in of your own money to trigger the money on your card to work). And when you play it, lets say you play a 1.00 3 reel slot. So you max bet 3.00 per spin. If I hit 100 on first spin. Do I have 100 in real cash and 97 in the free slot play still. So if I spin again will the next 3.00 come out of the free 97 left on my card, or out of the 100 I won, or is it co-mingled together. I might have more questions after this is answered but these are the basic ones I need to do this. My wife have never gambled at all. So I want to make this as easy of an experience for her as I can. She is freaking out about this trip cause we just got married, bought a new house, and then she had a bunch of medical things come up with her teeth that cost a lot of money (she wasnt on my insurance yet). So she would be excited to just win 100.00 to shop with. Sorry also if these questions seem very basic, but again, I know nothing of slots.
