    Excuse my lack of enthusiasm for the half of the strip duopoly now known at CET. Now if they were to announce a sale of any of those properties, that would be worth celebrating.

    I am getting worried that his may mark the end of value properties for low rollers. It has been really nice the last few years getting COMP at Ballys for a modest amount of slot play. I suspect these days will end.

    Especially with what is being built around it!

    Room renos may drive up the price a bit, but all the renos in that area = YIKES!

    forever optimistic

    I'm glad to read the news of improved rooms coming online at the Quad and Bally's. My wife is not a fan of either, but I lile Bally's rooms as they are now. so some improvements would be gravy.

    captainron62 - yeah, it is possible that some rates could go up. But, I don't think they will go up so much that low rollers like us have much to fear. Most -if not all- Total Rewards members get great offers from CET for IP (Quad), Rio, Harrah's, Bally's and Flamingo. They will always have much nicer properties in the vicinity charging more for rooms. CET needs to keep prices at their mid and lower tier properties below those of the nicer joints. There are many times in the calender year that the marketing department at each property has lots of rooms to fill and that is why we low rollers get such great deals/prices for 3* hotels. My hunch is that CET needs us low rollers to fill rooms, eat their over priced food and loose $500-$600 each time we visit. It folks like us (and 40 million others) who keep 'em open. Just my thinkin' on the matter.

    later, GVJ

    Just to get an idea, as I might add slots to my repertoire, what constitutes 'modest' amount?

    Donny, I usually average risking about $200 a day on slots. That is an average, some days I dont play at all, some days I have lost $500.

    I am not much of a gambler and gambling is way down on my list of fave things to do in LV. My trip last Sept. I only lost $300 in five days, that was all I put in, I was really surprised the COMPS have kept coming.
