    Trips to Las Vegas:
    A friend and I will be taking a road trip to Laughlin, first time there. Wondering what casino it is easiest to "get on their radar?" I have read in some trip reports about people getting airfare included junket offers, what resorts are more likely to do this and what level of play are they looking for?

    We stayed at the Riverside in Laughlin in October as part of flight/hotel package deal ($299/person) for 4 days and 3 nights.

    At the Riverside, my wife and I played approximately 3-4 hours/day. My wife played penny slots with average bet of $.50 per spin. I played $.25 JoB at max bet. After our return home we received an offer from Riverside to buy one-get one flight/hotel package deal. From what friends have told us, your second trip is buy one-get one. And your third trip is comped.

    At Aquarius, my wife and I played approximately 1 hour/day. Same deal. Penny slots for her and JoB for me. I also dropped $100 at the Pai Gow tables one day in less than an hour. We have received an offer for one free night based on the above.

    Hope this helps!

    IIRC there are 2 casino's that offer the flight and a room comps: Riverside Casino and Harrah's up the hill a bit.
    The Riverside would be the easiest to do this based on play, where I know for sure Harrah's takes a lot more coin-in and at least Platinum to get the flights.

    If you just want free rooms, Tropicana Express gives them out with minimal play. I'm talking $200 - $300 coin-in per day.

    Edgewater and Colorado Belle are good as well, but I don't like their rooms.

    Golden Nugget is another one with great free rooms for small play. Small hotel as well, only 300 rooms. But lots of slots and I like the atmosphere there.

    Aquarius is nice, a great casino, but they are stingy on the free rooms. Takes more coin-in to earn one, but they are clean and nice rooms.

    If you love a smoke filled casino, then Riverside would be your best chance for a free room and flight!

    If just interested in rooms, check out the Golden Nugget.

    I stayed there one night this past February. I played at the $5 craps table for about 2 hours on a $100 buy-in. Every month since then, they offer me two free rooms with $10 free slot play.

    GN Laughlin and GN Las Vegas players clubs are not linked together, even though they have the same name. I wish I could get comps at the GN Vegas as easily as in Laughlin.

    GN Laughlin is very nice, and inexpensive. I stayed in their most expensive room category - 4th floor river view - for $38/night (weeknight in the winter).
