    Hi Everyone,
    I hope everyone had a great and safe 4th of July. It is time for Plaza updates! We just had a successful Video Poker Tourney and are planning more. So allow me to start with a list of 2015 events:

    August 13-16 10K Empire Slot Tourney of Champions
    September 17-20 10K Winner Take All Black Jack Tourney
    October 8-11 10K Video Poker Tourney
    November 12-15 20K Empire Slot Tourney Finals
    December 12 50K Giveaway

    Within the next couple of weeks I will have a list for 2016. yes, we are planning ahead. :) For comped entry into our events contact one of us casino hosts and we will let you know if you qualify for a comped entry. To qualify for the November tourney you must have been in two of the other SLOT tourneys.
    Now lets talk 50K Giveaway... For every 25,000 points you earn or have earned between Mar 2015-and December 11, 2015, you can pick up a 50K ticket to fill out and drop into our 50K barrel. Then be here at the Plaza for the 50K event. There we will draw three winners; one $25,000, one $15,000, and one $10,000 winner.

    Video Poker: As most of you know, we have been improving our Video Poker. Our latest is the ability to play free slot play in select video poker machines. Our bar top video poker at the Sports Book bar and the video poker machines upstairs by our BINGO hall now accepts free slot play.

    Keno: I am not familiar with all the various Keno games, however, I have been informed that we now have more Keno options and our Keno now has the best pay outs. I can attest to the Keno pay outs...I have had the pleasure of meeting plenty of video Keno players who have hit some great jack pots!

    BINGO:With our new BINGO manager comes some great BINGO changes. The most attractive is that points can be redeemed for bingo bucks. 1250 pts = $10 in bingo bucks.

    That is all I have for now. But, I will return with more soon. If you have any questions or if I can help with anything feel free to contact me. :) :beer:

    Curt,
    Any word if the 100 play VP machines will accept freeplay?

    Thanks,

    Hey Joe,
    I just double checked the 100 play, 5 play, and 3 play VP machines and they do not accept free slot play as of right now. However, we are investigating the possibilities. Fingers crossed. :)

    Curt, would you give my compliments to your security staff?
    Last feb. I was playing at the plaza on a thursdaynight (4am or so) and there was one dude who was really nice, but a bit too devoted to me for my liking ;) He walked with me to the elevators (was staying at Plaza) and I felt kind of uncomfortable about that. But before I could say anything to anyone a security guard was already there with me and walked me all the way up to my room, keeping the dude away from me. That felt so safe!
    So: a big thanks to your security!!!!

    We will be staying at El Cortez this summer, but are likely to return again in the winter :)

    Good news Curt! [​IMG]
    Somehow during my stays I never realized there was VP on the second floor.
    I will definitely check that out next trip.

    We stayed this past weekend at a great low rate after a week at the Golden Nugget. The remodeled rooms were really nice, very modern but comfortable and just like the picture on the banners on the street. We used some of the coupons in the fun book just to try and the Mexican place was build your own and was really good and fast. The Beer Garden had amazingly good gourmet sausages with great sides and fries for under $20 for two of us with a couple of free beers! The pool was clean and decent (no Shark Tank but usable). Had a $10 Hold 'Em tournament on the electronic tables in the poker room that was really fun! We may come back and stay again.

    Curt,

    Have you guys ever talked about getting a single zero roulette table? Even at a higher min it would set the Plaza apart from everyone else downtown.

    Just curious.

    Feadolphus,
    I Will be there in Sept. looking forward to all the new full pay video poker. Bringing my Dad talked about trying Plaza Bingo. Is there anywhere I can get more info on Plaza Bingo, Is it all electronic now?, Buy-ins? Payouts?, By the session or by the card? Drinks? etc...

    I'd like to know about the Bingo as well. Also has the scent in the casino been reduced or changed?

    I was just there a few days ago, and the smell in the casino is as bad as it ever was. My brother in law described it as the smell of an old woman wearing too much perfume, smoking a cigarette who just pooped herself.

    It's honestly one of the main reasons why I don't play there much.

    It reminds me of the stuff (Carpet Fresh?) we put down before we vacuum because of the dog, but it is probably 10 times stronger at Plaza.

    That being said, we stayed there 4 nights earlier this year and after the first 3-4 hours, I never noticed the overwhelming odor again for the balance of the trip. But, it does hit you the first time you walk in the door.

    The overly strong artificial scent has mostly kept us out of the Plaza for the last year. I wish Curt would address this in some way. *Someone* in a suit made this decision and had the scent machines put in.

    I think it was a bad call.

    Same here. To me it smells like wet carpet or wet laundry that was left in the washing machine too long.
