I used most of the Vegas matchplay coupons from the American Casino Guide. Great deal. The only two I didn't use were for the Dive-Horns (Long and Big). I like to "get out" and visit the various casinos and the matchplay coupons are a good excuse. I'll usually sit down and play blackjack for a little while after using the coupon, rarely doing a "hit-and-run" by just using the coupon and leaving. The Good: Coupons are easily accepted at most places. The 50% off at the Flame got me a decent filet mignon, garlic mashed taters, and an iced tea for $19 and the $5 off from the El Cortez funbook brought it down to $14. Don't pay full price at this mediocre steakhouse! The Bad: Ellis Island will put the free play on your card after 24 hours so plan accordingly if you use this coupon. At least they have some full pay VP to use the freeplay on. Also, I wish the 2 for 1 coupons had a 50% off option. Or at least a 30% off option. I go alone most of the time. The Ugly: Most matchplay coupons just get played with your bet. No problem. Some require a players club card along with the bet but this is rarely checked for. No problem (I sort coupons before trip, placing club card with coupon). At Jerry's Nugget you take the coupon to the players club and then get a printed ticket to use, which I like because the dealers instantly recognize what it is and don't have to pull over the pit boss to inspect the coupon and approve it. Still no problem. Now the ugly part... I went to the Hard Rock. The coupon states to just play the coupon with your bet so that's what I do. The dealer gives a disapproving look and pushes the coupon back and calls the pit boss. Pit boss takes coupon, gives his disapproving look, and tells me to take it to the players club. So I take it there and they ask for club card, driver's license, and the ACG card that comes with the book (this is the only time I've been asked for it). Now I have to get a printout, like at Jerry's Nugget. I take my printout to the blackjack table, get more disapproving looks by dealer and pit boss and then the pit boss asks to see my I.D. I finally get to play my $10 matchplay coupon. I win so I take my money and get the hell away from there.
