    Your play earlier this month won't factor into the September/October offers for Four Queens and Binion's -- which should be arriving sometime in the next 10-15 days. Your most recent play will reflect in the November/December offers, which should arrive in early October.

    Received my Sept/Oct offer for Binion's (I'm currently in Vegas, so thanks USPS Informed Delivery scan). I believe this reflects play from June where I had 3 nights and did 6100 points or so after the first 2 nights and 0 points on the third night.

    My prior offer for June/July/Aug was 3 nights, $150 freeplay, $50 food credit, and $75 food at Whiskey Licker Up.

    To me, this isn't an improvement at all but assuming it factored in May play, where I didn't stay but popped in and did about 1700 points.

    I did about 4200 points in July and will try to do the same in August (but maybe I'll spread out the daily play) and see what Nov/Dec looks like.

    But currently, if they don't have any offers in Sept/Oct, there's no reason for me to stay there and I'll just pop in and grab the freeplay.

    I just saw @JulianC 's post in another thread --

    Your September/October offer would be based on play from approximately 25 June 2021 and earlier, so your last time playing at Four Queens had no impact on the offer you just received. Your November/December offer -- which you should receive by the second week of October -- will be based in part on your June/July play.​

    My June stay at Binion's was June 24-26 (only played June 24-25), so could possibly have not registered at all for my Sept/Oct offer. Which makes sense, since the new offer seems basically the equivalent to my June/July/Aug offer with no incentive to taking a room (perhaps on purpose, if capacity is maxed these days).

    I'll look forward to see what Nov/Dec has in store.

    I got my September/October mailer today and I was kind of excited for a minute. 2 comp nights Sun-Thur and $40 FP. when I called to book the offers I got shot down on everything. They are
    saying my stay MUST include the Sunday.
    I have had plenty of offers from various hotels for Sunday through Thursday and I have never experienced this crap. I was furious.

    I hope you just got a misinformed phone rep. I’d call back and try again.

    I plan on it. I'll give it a day or two.
    The rep told me everyone was complaining about it. Even SHE cussed a couple of times.

    It has to be a mistake. Otherwise the “Thur” reference is meaningless.

    Can you post the terms in your mailer? My Sapphire mailer had a lot of September blackout dates around Life is Beautiful and the following weekend. I wonder if lower level offers have other restrictions.

    We might need to break this off and start our annual VMB thread on Four Queens / Binion's offers for September/October. We may actually already have that thread running.

    This is the "Ruby" offer level (reference on the offer levels), based on the free play amount -- unless the Pearl level now includes comped nights and increased free play. If your offer code is indeed FSOR1 (or maybe it's FSOR21), then this would be the first time I have ever heard of weekends not being included for comped nights at Four Queens (or Binion's) at any offer level.

    I think that the QQQQ/Binion's offers have finally normalized. Monthly FP and comped hotel stay instead of just once for the entire period, and now back to the before-time FP and dining credit (at the offer levels that include one) amounts.

    If it is indeed true that the Ruby offer level (or even the Pearl or Topaz levels, where the room is only discounted) requires a Sunday stay, then I can only conclude that it has something to do with football. And by that, I really mean not losing too much business to the neighbors -- D and Circa. I'll come up with a brief essay on this later.

    Reposting here, as my post appeared after the new thread was created.


    I would say the the offers have not normalized.

    More free play was added, and the offers monthly was done to make up for no tournaments.

    We seem to be back to the larger, monthly free play on the 2-month offers.

    This is not normal, but I hope we never return to normal. I like the offer monthly, and with more free play.

    Normal, in my opinion, is the bi-monthly offers. They could easily return to that at any time and it would not surprise me in the least if they did. However, I'm very pleased with the monthly offers and hope they stay that way as long as possible.

    Of the Sep/Oct 2021 offers we have seen thus far here on VMB (between both Four Queens and Binions, we have seen Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald), all of them have the same free play amounts at their respective offer levels as we had been seeing prior to June 2020. The only difference is that the offers can be used once per month instead of once per two-month period. There has also been the introduction of a restriction on Ruby offers (maybe even lower levels) to weeknights (up to two nights comped, Sunday through Thursday; casino rates the same as always) -- with the possibility of one of the nights in the booking needing to be a Sunday night.

    For those more familiar with the 4 queens tier levels, I get the $400 free play each month normally, is that Sapphire level?

    If the FP is back to the way it was prior to June 2020, then that is the Diamond II offer tier (the highest offer tier). What matters here is how much you got in your Sep/Oct 2021 offer.

    [EDIT] I now see that $400 FP is for Diamond I -- the second-highest offer tier. Expect Diamond II to get more. This means that the FP amounts have gone back down to "normal" for Emerald and below, but remain elevated compared to before for Diamond I/II. We also have the offers getting a bit tighter below the Sapphire level.

    False. Was getting 300 every 2 month period for diamond 1. Now getting 400 monthly for diamond 1. 600 for diamond 2 up from 400. Increased free play, monthly instead of bi-monthly. Much better. Did anyone ever figure out how 4 Queens was figuring ADT for slots and VP? Just wondering

    As far as I know, 4 Queens (and Binions) does not take ADT into account at all. It is simply points based per day. Reminds me of slot clubs in the 80's and 90's. Which makes sense given the aged technology of those sister properties.

    That makes playing low house edge video poker an attractive option at 4 Queens and Binions.
