    I just received an offer for $4.00 in free slot play in the mail from Eastside Cannery. Four bucks, what's the point ?!?!. I was there six months ago for the first and only time and played BJ for about 15 minutes, at probably about $40-$50 a hand average but didn't touch any slots. Has anyone ever received a lower offer ????

    if wiring money did not cost so much I would say to wire in $20 dollars to their cage so you can go there and collect that free play

    or perhaps call and fill out a letter of credit or line/marker request for $100 dollars :thumbsup:

    if they send it out for $4, you can bet somebody has gotten one for $3.

    Not "free play" in this sense, but last year, while at the Mirage, my buddy found a slot ticket with 3 cents (maybe 5...don't remember which) on it. We walked around forever trying to find a machine that would allow you to play one penny at a time...lol. we found one and he ended up playing for around an hour and got it up to 96 cents...woohoo...high roller...lol! It was an hour wasted, but he had the best time ever!

    So, take that $4 and go play some penny slots and just have some fun.

    Imagine if he had put $300 into that machine and built it up to $9,600.

    Same math.

    A local casino (Horseshoe) sends out those $5 free play tickets occasionally and I'm quite glad to get them!

    The Aquarius in Laughlin just sent me an offer for $5 off for 1 night. Last year they gave me 3 nights free for the same play. Players club there changed last April iirc.
    Mlife isn't so generous....

    $5 off of one night?! Okay, that is pretty laughable. They better include an extra roll of TP for that!

    Eastside has a lot of promotions, but some of them make me wonder what they are thinking.
    I still collect a few points a day on the Webpass promo on their site. They are good for a hat or a free buffet, but I can't see what might attract all the other special promotions associated with the program. That being said, it is a local's place and maybe $4 freeplay gets them in.
    Here is my review of the Webpass.

    Under that logic then since someone that got a $3 comp, someone else got a $2 comp and then someone else got a whopping $1.00 comp!!! I just don't get the effort/cost for a casino to employ people to monitor these and snailmail them to someone 1200 miles away... Maybe next time I'm in Vegas ill give the cannery more of a look as I do like the casinos that bend more towards locals than annoying tourists. So maybe that whopping $4 in free slot play will work to draw me in longer lol....

    Eastside cannery has some of the loosest slots in all of Vegas. So I could really care less how stingy they are on comps.

    more than likely they are computer generated and sent out by a 3rd party mailing service

    The D gives new players a whopping 3 bucks free play for signing up with the players club.

    That's certainly the lowest amount of free play I've ever downloaded to a machine
