I've only been to Vegas a few times, but I can feel myself being drawn in, lol! Have never been downtown yet, want to check it out and try out the Plaza $500 loss rebate program, am curious about the board's opinion for strategy. I am willing to lose the whole $500 if necessary, but of course I would rather win than have to do the rebate thing........knowing that I have a $500 bankroll, what would be your opinion on games to play and at what stakes? I like VP, and am ok with playing slots. Last trip we did the $200 loss rebate at the Trop, I managed to win $500 at VP there so a repeat downtown would sure be nice! This is a solo trip, so I have a fair amount of time to explore around.... part of the reason for the play at the Plaza is to also seed another hotel for possible offers. We get comped rooms at CET quite easily, but those are only for for 5 nights.........we get the best rates for flights if we are gone for a week, so that will leave a couple of nights free for other hotels...we currently get some offers at a few of the Mlife properties, but those offers seems fairly random...it would be nice to have some other options as well! Any ideas as to coin in requirements to put me on their comp radar? On another note, I read somewhere that the Plaza matches other loyalty cards, I am a Diamond at CET, anyone know to what level that would equate at the Plaza?
