    Hello all,
    Going to be staying at either The Orleans or Gold Coast for my upcoming 5 night trip. Does anyone have an experience with which one is better with future mailers/offers? I am a low roller and will be staying for 5 nights. Am I better off playing at both or should I focus most of my play at one casino? They both have most of my favorite games and I want to concentrate on one or both. Thanks in advance!

    I like them both!
    Orleans has more slots, and GC has lots more VP.
    Both will send out future mailers with little play, but I do think Orleans does a lot more, plus more Promo events.

    I'm a low roller (who tries to make it up in volume) and frequently play and stay at both places - some VP, but mostly table games. The Orleans usually extend an offer for a couple nights Sun – Thur. that lasts several months, while GC usually comes through with twice as many nights EVERY month, which usually includes weekends. I love both places and usually divide my play between them.

    The mailers are very similar, but I think I get more room nights offered from the Gold Coast. The biggest difference is what you want in your stay. The rooms are almost identical. The Orleans is a larger property with more restaurant options but the Gold Coast has my favorite 2 restaurants...both of their Chinese options. The vp is much better at the Gold Coast. The bars are better at the Orleans. It really comes down to what you rate as most important to you in your stay as the offers are very similar.

    Ok great thank you everyone. I think I may just treat myself and pay a little extra for The Orleans. They have more dining options that appeal to me plus the rooms look nicer with the loveseat and comfy chair with safe. I will divide my play between the 2 properties via the free shuttle. Hopefully I will run through enough play to receive future offers, if not it's no biggie. They both have the machines that I enjoy to play. And I don't want to play machines that I don't enjoy just to chase comps.

    Love the Orleans and have stayed there over a dozen times. Hope you will enjoy it as well. The casino is quite large and I think that you'll enjoy the slot assortment. The good thing about the Orleans is that even a fairly low level of play will at least net you a couple of free nights during the week so, even if you aren't particularly lucky and don't accumulate a great many points, they will likely give you some incentive to come back.
