    Not impressed. I took them up on their match offer late in October. They gave me a very nice room in the Lux tower and matched my CET free play of $450. I gambled through about $8K at their machines the night I stayed with them. My average is around $10K per day but I got started late. So my ADT should be $8K all slots. My bounce back mailer was for $50.00 in free play and a room for 1 night.

    They same ADT at the Strat would get me 3 nights and $200.00 + $25 in food and the same play gets me $450 + 5 nights at Caesars Palace...

    I expected a little more since I know they are trying to target gamblers. Anyone have better luck?

    No, I am Platinum mLife and also get comped downtown 4 nights at the D, 200 FP, and $300 Food.

    All I got from SLS was 2 free nights and $50 food.

    Plus, I drove by Wednesday night (11/26/14) and the valet was full, the self park entrance was closed and they asked me to drive around. I did so, and never looked back.

    Reminds me a lot of the Revel in AC. They are just too cool for everyone. Or at least they think they are.

    At least Revel sent me $100 in free play after I gambled there for just a couple of hours last year. Usually you get one good bounce back offer. If $50 is the best they got its not worth the hassle... When most every other place in town I play at gives me 10 times that for the same play it makes it that much easier to move on.

    To be clear, ADT is your daily theoretical, not your coin-in. $8k coin-in on slots would be about $640 theo. Which would probably yield $250 in comps. Perhaps they factored in that they overcomped you by $200 on your initial offer and adjusted your second offer by that amount....yielding $50.

    Understood. But like I pointed out the "come hither" offers are usually pretty decent after a 1st time visit. After my 1st stay at the Stratosphere with the same play it was 3 nights + food + $200 and they are right across the street. My Total Rewards offers, for the past year, have all been 5 nights + $450 plus add ons like shows or high roller tickets. MGM, again with the same level of play I gave SLS, has me pegged at $250 in free play + $75 in food and 3 nights. Even the V where I actually low played them my last stay tosses me $125 and the suite for 3 nights.

    If SLS is looking for players they arent going to attract them with this. As others above pointed out they are getting the shaft as well.

    IMHO a new property, especially in a town as competitive as Vegas, should be very generous when they first open. They want to court gamblers, and build a clientele list. Revel is a prime example of how, and why a casino will fail. If SLS does think they are "too cool for school" they'll be out of business quicker than you can say "Revel." I am staying at SLS in December and they matched an offer from another casino, and put me up in a nice room. I'm looking forward to giving them a chance at least.

    8k coin-in on slots is strong play for at least a teaser offer or 2. 8k on VP, not so much, as your ADT would be far lower. $50 FSP is quite weak..... For a property with lower than average initial foot traffic, they should be marketing aggressively.... This is obviously not the case.

    Scratch my previous comments in the anti-SLS thread. I previously (perhaps foolishly) fully supported their marketing model. If their offers remain this weak, I agree, they won't last until the surrounding properties open.

    Casino's should be bending over backwords to get in player with 8-10K coin in daily on slots. Those are quality players and the offer is an insult.
