    I was thinking the same thing.... didnt take them long at all.... If they want to be competitive with Borgata and CET then they will have to put some kind of structure in place...

    I wish I would have known about this Sunday night. I signed up for a card but wasn't asked about matching tiers. The $50 free play with the $500 bonus play would have got me to come back Monday rater than playing at Harrah's and Borgota.

    I am heading to AC this weekend, staying at Harrah's. I can't wait to go check this place out. I am DIAMOND at CET and definitely will take advantage of this offer.

    If I remember right, wasn't Borgata the same way when they first opened, though?

    They didn't want to be part of the "play for comps" crowd, and fashioned themselves as the "high end" casino that people would just pay to stay in

    The other thing about Revel that chapps me is that on the weekends, they're requiring a two night minimum stay
    who does that?
    who wants to drop a grand before they've even had a meal or put buck in a slot machine? Not me

    we'll stay at the CET properties, play at CET properties and walk down to Revel for some of the Tongue tacos and prickly pear Margaritas from Distrito!

    Not Excited About Revel

    Mrs Doc and I recently returned from a three night stay at Revel and are not likely to return. The architecture is lovely and the customer service is great. I love the restuarants, but I hate the casino!
    I play $5, $10, and $25 slots. In most casinos these machine are grouped together in a high limit room or a small area. At Revel they are spread throughout the casino as multi-denominational games. I expect they are not catering to the higher limit player, since I saw no high limit table games area either. Also I could find no $5 five line machines or any of the 20 line $1 videos such as Davinci Diamonds.

    Comps seemed to be about the same as Borgata. We were comped an oceanfront View Suite and our host used the $700 or so in Resort Dollars I earned to cover food.

    The suite was nice, but it was smaller than the Borgata Opus Suite. It did have a nice view of the ocean, but since we live on the coast, that was not a big draw for us.

    I missed having a VIP lounge and hated having to stand in line for things. They seem not to provide the services that I value in a property, so next time I'm in AC -- Borgata!

    Doc

    Also not impressed

    I can't believe they don't have any $50 or $100 BJ games. They are clearly not marketing to gamblers.
